    Thanks, just ordered

  2. Heinz says:

    Ordered!
    Thank you Paul!!

  3. DJ Control says:

    If any readers/posters here that are fans and thinking twice about this set, DON’T. It’s worth every penny. And at this price a bargain. I wish all bands would do this kind of box set.

  4. Simon says:

    “If There Was A Man” one of the great lost Bond songs.

  5. karl says:

    Ordered this one for my girls birthday gift. Thanks a bunch :)

  6. Geoff says:

    Glad the message got through :)

  7. Geoff says:

    @Paul – No problem Paul, had plenty of deals from you in the past.

  8. Dan says:

    Bought it. Thanks for the update Paul!

  9. Wax Monster X says:

    Done and done! Been wanting this for a while. Thanx Brexit for keeping the pound low!!

  10. Marcel Rijs says:

    Balls. Missed it. Widget seems to be slow to update to the new (higher) price too. Sorry, I won’t ever complain again.

    • Simon C says:

      The £59 price with Amazon is still there, look at the other sellers area, it’s indicates delivery in 2-4 weeks and in most cases Amazon do fulfill the order.

    • karl says:

      It seems to be back on 3pm eastern

  11. Geoff says:

    @Marcel – it’s still £59, you have to click on ‘More buying choices’ on the right which takes you through to Amazon as the seller.

  12. Simon says:

    I read the sound quality of these isn’t great otherwise I would pick it up. Will stick with the Rhino reissues

  13. eric slangen says:

    @ Marcel Rijs.
    The JPC site is maybe 2 pounds more expensive so take it there. Shipping is 100%.

  14. gwynogue says:

    YES! YES! YES!!!

    If that reads like I’m having an orgasm, it’s pretty damn close, LOL. I’m a huge Pretenders fan (since I was 7 or 8) so I’ve been desperately wanting this box set ever since it was first announced.

    I thought I’d missed it at first (the deal, not the orgasm :)), but then I looked at the ‘Other Sellers’ section and it was still there, huzzah!

    Thanks Geoff and Paul S – with the exchange rate and without VAT, it’s only going to cost me a smidge under $AUD100. That’s nearly HALF of what it would cost me anywhere else!

    I’ve also read about the audio quality issues and I already have the Rhino re-issues and the ‘Pirate Radio’ box-set, but this still has a lot of stuff I don’t already have so this was a no-brainer for me.

    I usually miss these deal alerts (time-difference) so I’m really pleased about this – especially as it’s an artist/group that I absolutely adore.

    Thanks again! *thumbs up*

  15. Glenn says:

    ~$71 shipped to USA. Great deal at under $10 per album.

  16. Chris says:

    Done – this has been in my Amazon wish list for a while. Thanks.

    For me only £52 – ordered for delivery to Singapore so no VAT and even postage is only £3 !!!

  17. Pete in Australia says:

    I have had this sitting in my basket for a few weeks and then 1st July was my target for grabbing. On the 2nd I went on to see what price it was at and was super excited to see that it had been reduced ,so i grabbed it and got it for 49.19pnds. So was very Happy. Went over as a curious today and it had bounced back up to 74pnds, so THANKS Paul as always for the alert, even though I had already grabbed it. LOOKING forward to getting this, even though i have the Rhino reissues.

  18. Paul Murphy says:

    All the Box Sets in Amazon UKs ‘Complete Collection Deal’ have shot up the Best Seller chart [bar Showaddywaddy, which isn’t out yet but at £66 is a steal if you are a fan], which should tell Amazon/record companies about the rewards of a Stack ‘Em High, Sell ‘Em Cheap policy. Even though I now know I paid over £50 for a badly-scanned ‘Brass In Pocket’ lyric sheet with my son’s name on [the original deal], I’m glad to see The Pretenders set shrink down in price, just so many other people will own it [dodgy sound on some discs notwithstanding, and deplorable absence of Chrissie’s majestic cover of Dylan’s ‘Property Of Jesus’ from the Hurricane appeal of many decades ago when charity concerts were all the rage]. Most posts though seem to be from overseas customers grateful that they can now buy box sets from Amazon cheaper than we can [the £35 duty charge I paid Parcelforce for my ‘bargain’ ‘Achtung Baby’ SDL from the US still smarting 3 years later!].

  19. Daniel says:

    This was released by Warner?? Really wish they’d do this for Madonna’s back catalogue.

  20. Andrea says:

    I bought this when it was released, it isn’t worth the plastic on which the CDs are printed.

    Compressed to death, and as the mastering engineer admitted, from digital files Edsel was handed with no info or control about their origin; at least one of the DVD (The ISle of View) has a faulty audio track.
    If you love the Pretenders, you’re going to hate what they’ve done to them on this reissue.

  21. Kauwgompie says:

    Thank you! $71 including shipping to the USA!! Had been eyeing this set for a year hoping it would turn up on a Christmas sale somewhere but it didn’t. Now I got it at an excellent price. Thanks Superdeluxeedition!!!!!!!!

  22. Richard says:

    Thanks Paul,
    Just ordered this and The Sinatra box for 14.99 GBP.
    Cheers

  23. Frenchy Eric says:

    I confirm owning two of these new deluxe editions that we have here only mastered cds with flat sound. Stick to the Rhino remastered reissues !
