The highly anticipated Grace Jones Disco set which compiles the albums Fame, Portfolio and Muse – with bonus tracks – is released in a week’s time. The 4LP version is significantly more expensive than the 3CD or blu-ray audio options but you can save almost £20 on the vinyl box by pre-ordering now at Amazon Italy

The Italians have currently priced this at €67 which equates to just under £48 (or $73) Compare this to the UK price of £67 (or the US price of $135!). Shipping to the UK is a highly reasonable £3.50.

The first three LPs are the original 1977, 1978 & 1979 LPs.The fourth LP is an 8 song “Singles” compilation drawn from the bonus tracks on the 3CD set.  Note that  On Your Knees (12” Disco Version) is actually the same as the album version.

    Mmm sorely tempted…

  2. John says:

    This demands to be heard on vinyl. For those of in the U.S.A.: €55,12 + €19,78 (shipping) = €74,90/$84.53/£55.64. A savings of $50.46 off the current Amazon US price of $134.99. Thanks, Paul!

  3. Straker says:

    Why does it “demand to be heard on vinyl” at three times the CD price no less?!

  4. discoadam says:

    I have sent Universal an email regarding the missing “Portfolio” interior artwork as follows: Grace Jones / Disco Years / CD Box Set / Product Code 5354648. The gatefold jacket for the “Portfolio” album does not contain the original interior artwork. It is simply black. The gatefolds for both of the other albums in the set “Fame” and “Muse” are beautifully reproduced exactly as the originals were. Will USM make replacement jackets available for the “Portfolio” CD with the correct interior artwork for customers who have bought the set?
