Deal alert / Lloyd Cole & the Commotions 6-disc box


Unbelievably good deal for the forthcoming Lloyd Cole and the Commotions 5CD+DVD Collected Recordings 1983-1989 box set if you order from Amazon Italy.

The box set which contains remastered versions of the three albums, plus two CDs of bonus material and a DVD is just £25 (or €35) which is HALF the UK Price!! This is correct at the time of writing (8.30am 5/6/15) but won’t last long.

    Aaaaaaaaand, the first price-drop since release….£46.10 now on Amazon UK. HMV are stocking it instore, encouragingly, for 49.99.

  2. TopCat says:

    Possible deal alert – now back down to 53 euros on (11% discount)

  3. Straker says:

    Back up now @60 Euros!

  4. Mike says:

    Though amazon italy maybe able to do it, its morally bankrupt as they will be selling it again imminently.

  5. simon says:

    Like many others it was & then wasn’t in “My Bag” so Amazon Italia are no longer my “Brand New friend” as they’ve tried my “Patience” making me “Mr Malcontent” and leading me to conclude that they are “Rattlesnakes” and I’ve told them they will “Never Be No Good”. Shame really as they could have got “Rich” but I guess that’s how it is “These Days”, if I see a similar offer I’m likley to think “I Don’t Believe You”. If I carry on It’ll end up being a “Lost Weekend” and I’ll be “Perfect(ly) Blue” so thats enough shooting “From The Hip” from me

    NB I’ve not heard owt about the Simple Minds replacement – reckon I I’ll be informed by someone somewhere in summertime ………Enough already!

  6. Phil says:

    Amazon Italy missed a trick.

    They should have sent out the cancellation emails with the subject line “Are You Ready To Be Heartbroken?”

  7. Steven says:

    My order cancelled to, not impressed

  8. Stuart Russell says:

    I got an email from Universal yesterday (Thursday) noting that the Sparkle In The Rain replacements will be with us ‘within the week’

  9. Jim says:

    As far as I know the price has been the same on the UK site since it was announced so at least nobody cancelled a low-priced and now unobtainable order to get this one. That would have been annoying.

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      This is true. The price hasn’t moved. It’s good practise to keep cancellations to the last minute, but you do have to ensure you remember to cancel the-one-you-don’t-want so you don’t end up with two copies :)

  10. Leemer says:

    Ouch!!! If it’s anything like those Tears for Fears and Simple Minds SDE box sets, it’ll be down to a reasonable price in due course. BTW has anyone received their replacement DVD for the Simple Minds Sparkle in the Rain SDE yet?

  11. RJS says:

    What a palavar! Just re-ordered from UK site and also added the new Michael Head and The Strands CD so that I don’t get hit with postage charges for it (the Michael Head CD).

  12. Paul Sinclair says:

    Sorry about that everyone! Mine got cancelled too. A bit surprising that they’ve done this to be honest, but as has been stated, they are within their rights. Oh well.

    • Eric says:

      I suppose the sudden surge of overseas orders for a particular product, all within an hour or so, alerted them to something not being “normal”….and they probably felt – rightly or wrongly – that the offer was being abused. This is only going to happen more often, so they need to stop messing people about – either honour the orders, or refused to accept overseas buyers. Or maybe there’s a Third Way…..?

  13. Andrew Greenwood says:

    Cancelled from Italy. I think £30 or around that would be a reasonable price, so I will wait until it comes down. if it disappears instead then that’s £30 saved.

  14. Mark Phillips says:

    Order cancelled here as well. :-(

    First they bump up Prime to £79, then they raise the minimum order for free delivery to £20, are Amazon actively trying to piss people off?

  15. DJ Control says:

    My order cancelled as well.

  16. Darren Lewis says:

    Cancelled from Italia here too…

  17. Alvy says:

    I know they have a watertight disclaimer built into their terms and conditions in the case of such things, but it’s still annoying.

  18. Roberto says:

    Cancelled my order too, price was too low, what a bunch of idiots

  19. Jim says:

    Yep cancelled here as well. You guys who missed it can feel less bad about yourselves now.

  20. Alvy says:

    I just got an e-mail from Amazon Italy saying that my order was cancelled.
    “The price of the article you want shown on the website was incorrect, so we couldn’t give the course to your order. If you would like to regain the article to the current price, blah blah blah blah blah…”
    Now it is being listed as “currently not available”.

  21. Mike says:

    Ditto – just had my order cancelled. Ah well.. was worth a punt.

  22. Phil says:

    Just had my pre-order cancelled by Amazon Italy – the listed price was wrong. Too good to be true, unfortunately.

  23. Leemer says:

    I wasn’t complaining either. Just reporting. I appreciate Paul’s posting these. Amazon Italy had a couple of spectacular low prices in the past. It is strange how Amazon just shuffles these deals around. What goes through Jeff Bezos’s head?

  24. RJS says:

    It’s currently No. 95 on music bestsellers list – I doubt that Lloyd Cole & The Commotions have ever been more popular in Italy :-)

  25. Thomas says:

    I think i was some of the last ones, i got mine at 10 o’clock.
    afterwards i canceld my order at uk.
    Thanks Paul

  26. richie says:

    Too late for this late riser but keep `em coming Paul. I am not willing to pay £50 for this set and it will drop in price again.

  27. Grant Riggs says:

    I missed it too, was having breakfast in our canteen. But Paul is doing a great job with these alerts. keep them coming Paul, and lets hope we get another reduction on it sometime soon. Great work.

  28. fettdog says:

    Any offers posted at any time are welcome. Gutted I missed this one, but such is life :-)

    Keep up the good work, Paul!

  29. Alan says:

    Although I was not quick enough to clinch this deal I don’t see why Paul should be criticized for any timing issues relating to the deals he makes known to the rest of us.
    After all, getting the offer out there as quick as possible is surely the key here and by far the best way to ensure that at least some of us benefit.
    The regular updates and improved typing skills at my end will bag me a deal one day, but for now thanks to all at SDE for their continued top efforts!

  30. Roberto says:

    I think did not expect so many requests, this is not a top seller.

  31. Boris says:

    Not a moan (keep the alerts coming), just a groan of frustration. How dare Amazon Italy not consider us UK commuters when deciding their discount strategy? 8-)

  32. Boris says:

    Timing is everything… Alert received at 08:30 when most of us are travelling to work… by the time we get there it’s gone!

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      I understand that it’s frustrating if you miss it, but I can’t control what amazon do with these price changes and discounts. If I waited for the optimum time to post, it could be gone and no one would get the deal. So current strategy is to post about it while the deal is active and at least some will benefit.

  33. Leemer says:

    Siamo spiacenti
    Collected Recordings 1983-1989 al momento non è disponibile Nuovo .

    That is… Sorry Collected Recordings 1983-1989 it is currently not available New.

  34. John says:

    Thanks, nabbed mine whilst sitting on the train this morning.

  35. dave says:

    oh well

  36. dave says:

    prenota ora not working for me
    says nothingn in my basket – is it gone already?

  37. Andrew Greenwood says:

    Cheers Paul. another success. I had put off ordering it as I really didn’t want to pay £50 for stuff I already have on Vinyl and CD, despite Lloyd’s careful remastering.

  38. RJS says:

    Ordered and UK pre-order cancelled. It’ll take a couple of days longer to arrive but can’t argue for a saving of £22. Cheers!

  39. Hans says:

    Thanks ordered :-)

  40. Darren Lewis says:

    39 Euros with postage…My 50 quid order on the UK site is well and truly cancelled- Thanks!

  41. Andreas says:

    cool – just replaced my UK order :-)

  42. arnaud says:


  43. Christian says:

    Pre-ordered – Thank you!

  44. Mike Pendlebury says:

    Just bought it! Now I’m heading over to Amazon UK to cancel my order with them! Thanks Paul!

  45. Steven says:

    Ordered. Suede yesterday this today, going to be an expensive month!

  46. Roberto says:

    Got it -)

    • Richard says:

      Bought it immediately. emailed me a couple of hours later to cancel the order as “the price on the website was incorrect” and citing their terms and conditions to justify this.
      Not impressed.
