  19. Philip Cohen says:

    Wow! I immediately placed my order.

  20. Adey says:

    I think this is the real price and not a misprint, as i ordered 2 then phoned a couple of friends, then tried ordering 2 more for them but it changed the second order to one and a message popped up saying there was a limit to how many you can buy!

  21. Adey says:

    I wonder if they are just shifting remaining stock before it goes out of print

  47. Mark Brown says:

    Thanks. 10 GPB to Australia. Much appreciated Paul.

  48. Sean says:

    Are the dvd and Blu Ray ntsc?

  49. Steve says:

    The description says
    This ‘Super Deluxe’ edition features the live concert on 1 CD, 2 LPs, 1 DVD and 1 Blu-ray, and a 12′ single of ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’.
    Is that correct?
    I don’t see the 2lps in the photo.

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      The super deluxe has only ever had the 12-inch of BR. There are no vinyl records of the live performance.

  50. Mark says:

    Fantastic deal delivered to the US for under $21.00. Thanks Paul!

  51. richie says:

    Another great deal Paul, the best deals seem to occur on a Sunday, the John Martyn deal was on a Sunday and that was a fabulous deal.

  52. Frenchy Eric says:

    Limited to 3 purchases by customer !

  53. Ben Williams says:

    Great deal, thanks Paul for the heads up. Added to the cart a copy of The Martian on DVD (which Ive wanted for a while, great film) and a 1p simcard to get it up to £20 for free delivery!

  54. moog_man says:

    Superb – SDE in full effect, cheers

    For those with a record player, this may be of interest…
    During a talk with Abbey Rd engineer, Miles Showell a couple months back – to introduce the half-speed mastered vinyl that Universal recently put out – he mentioned that the “Bohemian Rhapsody” 12″ included in this box-set was also half-speed mastered. It’s the only way to obtain this particular cut; it wasn’t made available through any other channel.
    Given what RSD charge for a supposed 12″ rarity these days, you just grabbed yourself a serious bargain.

  55. moog_man says:

    Still available at the Queen online store…… GBP84

  56. Martin says:

    Not a massive fan sounds great for the price can’t resist

  57. Mark says:

    Just bagged this – amazing thank you Paul and SDE

  58. DaKraut says:

    What an unbelievable price! Got it straight away! Thanks for hint. The SDE site is definitely one of the best on the whole net.

  59. Michel kempes says:

    Woohoo…..thanks Paul…you made a rainy sunday here in the netherlands to a bright sunny day!!!

  60. Alone With Strangers says:

    And now £94.99. Bummer.

  61. eric slangen says:

    Shit, too late.

  62. Steven says:

    £94.99 now.

  63. Iain says:

    5 minutes too late – added to cart at 12.99 (which is still showing as the price wrongly on the product info page which is why the widget on this page hasn’t changed yet) but changed to 95 as tried to check out :(

  64. Michel kempes says:

    Woohoo again…..price is up to 94 GBP….pfff that was close

  65. Dan Timmons says:

    snake@home.nl

  70. Steve says:

    Cheers Paul, there is a vinyl version though, £29.99 on Amazon
    https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B016BVWGFS/ref=tmm_vnl_title_0?ie=UTF8&qid=&sr=

  71. David Ellis says:

    Looked at 14.05 – showed £12.99 added to basket and showed at £94.99…
    deleted from basket, followed the link back from SDE and it had gone up to £94.99! 5 mins too late…!

  72. Simon A. says:

    Amazon.co.uk has changed the price back. Glad some of you got a sweet deal.

  73. Alex says:

    Ordered my copy in time I hope.
    Looks like they are all gone now.

  74. Billy says:

    Back to £94.99, well done to those who got in early.

  75. Stu says:

    Seem to be gone now :-(

  76. Atlantasteve says:

    Looks like the party is over. 94.99 now.

  77. Al says:

    back up to £94.99

  78. Grant says:

    Got one, great heads-up Paul – now back up to £94.99 on Amazon UK.

  79. Matt Charles says:

    Gutted….. :( Was busy actually in a Studio recording my own music on the smell of an ‘oily rag’…so missed it….anyone double buyers interested in making a ‘small profit….? matt@legwarmer.tv // cheers Paul // matt

  80. olegofg says:

    I can not see this amazing price. Maybe its too late

  81. Neil Kelly says:

    Holy f*** missed it i’m pissed

  82. Chris Lancaster says:

    Well, that was a ridiculous price. Got in at £12.99, and then received a subsequent mail to say it will be delivered between June 14th and 16th. Thanks for the heads-up, Paul!

    • Gerry says:

      Mine is still currently saying 27 – 28th June on the my orders on Amazon.

      • Neil says:

        Mines is saying Arriving 28 Jun – 1 Jul. Strange how some people are getting different dispatch dates and emails and others aren’t.

        • Bren says:

          Just had an email revising the estimated dispatch date from June 24-27 to June 16-17! Looks like Amazon have the stock :)

  83. Kevin says:

    Got mine…just checked to see if it was still current and it’s back up to £94. Thanks Paul

  84. Michael Rooker says:

    Is it my eyes or does it look like a 7″ version, not 12″ as advertised, copy of Bohemian Rhapsody ?

  85. Eugene says:

    Anybody who grabbed the deal has already charged for this?

  86. Michael Rooker says:

    Ok Paul, and thank you very much for the tip off, much appreciated.

  87. Phil WIlson says:

    Mine says preparing for despatch, so here’s hoping

  88. John says:

    GUTTED to have missed this! Absolute steal, was only looking at it on Amazon the other day! Oh well nevermind, well done those who snapped it up!

  89. Joey d'Entremont says:

    Wow! Thanks Paul! I usually always read these emails late and when I check it out the price has already gone up. I couldn’t believe it when I got up early this morning and discovered this deal was in fact still live. Although I’m a huge Queen fan, I passed on this box originally because of the high price, opting instead to purchase the 2LP set and the Blu-ray individually. I’ll now have the best of both worlds and this set will sit nicely next to my Live at the Rainbow SDE box, my Live at the Rainbow 4LP box, and my Queen Forever 4LP box! :D

  90. Steve says:

    Did I read that you were limited to 3 copies nice one.That means someone not everyone makes a nice few quid/euro’s selling them on whist a lot of people including me miss out
    Then I read “already got one but at that price had to get another” how many copies do you need

  91. Rene says:

    D***it, I could just kick myself for missing out on this! I wanted this one sooooo bad! Anyone here who ordered more than one and wants to make a fellow “boxset-fetishist” happy? Would be good for your karma, you know! ;-) Any help would be HIGHLY appreciated!

  92. alex says:

    :-(( never received your email.
    I’m very sorry !!

    • colin says:

      Me neither. The only one I got today from SDE was at 7.05pm – The Week in Review email!

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      You didn’t receive the email because you unsubscribed on 6 March. If you unsubscribe, unsurprisingly, you don’t get the emails!!

  93. Bren says:

    Grabbed this! Hopefully Amazon won’t run out of stock and eventually cancel as they did with The Wall Immersion set at £32 last year. Great concert & audio and the book looks particularly fine. Any concert with the full Lap Of The Gods Revisited has to be worth owning.

  94. Stan Butler says:

    Can anyone explain why Amazon would drop the price so significantly on an item like this for a short time? I’m pretty sure it’s not a purely altruistic act. Even if they were looking just to clear stock, given that it’s Queen, they could still price it at say £25-30 and it would fly off the shelves. As you said Paul, they are giving it away at £12.99. The Bohemain Rhapsody 12″ alone is more expensive than that!
    Anyway, I realise it doesn’t happen often so congratulations to all those who snapped it up.

  95. Paul Scott says:

    Great tip-off and for once I saw the SDE deal alert in time . I’d umm’d and ah’d over this for a while but at this price it was too good to miss. Thanks Paul

  96. Pete in Australia says:

    Hey Paul and All, for once I was lucky enough to order a copy, at that PRICE, as I said in my earlier post, all up $30 Aus. Two local places, have it listed at $215 and another $250, so an AMAZING saving. Being in Australia, tend to find out about these deals, too late, due ONLY to the time frame. Like BREN said, my Pink Floyd The Wall super deluxe which I ordered, never surfaced, which I was pretty disappointed about. I cannot see why AMAZON cannot honour their orders and also like STAN says, maybe do it at a still reasonable price, and for a bit of a longer time frame. :)

  97. Richard Bristow says:

    Brilliant Paul, thank you, much appreciated.

    I see it shifted enough copies in those few hours to become the number one seller in Music on Amazon.

  98. karl says:

    Well I missed a gem but I have a good reason. I spent the weekend in Windsor, ON watching the Eric Burdon and Edgar Winter show and wow it was amazing. Amazing just like this deal I missed but I’m happy for everyone who got it. Your awesome Paul for doing this on the weekend….Mum’s the word lol.

  99. Dean says:

    Congrats to those who got in on this. I usually get these alerts, but for some reason didn’t receive this one.

  100. gwynogue says:

    WAAAAH! I missed it! Any Aussies get a spare? LOL

  101. gwynogue says:

    Speaking of Amazon deal alerts – any idea what happened to a-ha’s “Hunting High And Low”?

    • Neil says:

      What deal alert is that ? I can only see it for £41.

      • gwynogue says:

        It was a couple months ago now. The deal alert price (around £25) is long gone. Amazon said it would be 2-4 weeks before dispatch, but nothing happened. I got an email a couple weeks ago saying they’re contacting the supplier. I was wondering if SDE, or SDE readers had any more info they could post.

  102. tyrone tudor says:

    Wow. I didn’t log in yesterday :(

    Are these prices being honored?

  103. Juanmi says:

    Now the box set is #1 at Best Sellers in Music category at 94 pounds. Most of the Amazon visitors won’t know that was at 12.99 pounds for two hours.

  104. Ralph says:

    Big thank you. I got both this and the Monkees Box this weekend. Now can you find me a good deal on box set storage units please?

  105. Phil Wilson says:

    Well it now says “despatching now” so things are looking positive.

  106. Phil Wilson says:

    …… and it has been despatched. I have prime, but this is on 2 day delivery with a different company than Amazon usually use, so possibly coming from one of the European depots?

  107. Dean says:

    I sincerely hope you all get it. The last time I saw a bargain like this it went to “Despatching Now” and then stayed there…….. Finally they cancelled the order.

  108. Alan Wilson says:

    I’m the same Phil Wilson, got the despatch e-mail earlier, due to arrive Thursday, looking very positive I would say.

  109. Phil WIlson says:

    It looks like we go this one folks, certainly those who got in early. I noticed this about 6am on Saturday (UK time) so it must have been on for a few hours by then as it had moved up the “movers and shakers” chart.

  110. Phil WIlson says:

    Sorry, my comment should have read “It looks like we got this one folks”

  111. gwynogue says:

    Double dammit! Amazon Canada had an AMAZING price on your widget, but when I clicked through that was long gone too!

  112. Alexander says:

    Hi Paul,

    I did not receive the Deal Alert mail either – though I´m subscribed. Any malfunction?

    The widget still shows a fantastic Price on the Canadian site – though it´s already gone. Is the any possibility to add a “refresh button”?

    Thanks a lot for your brilliant SDE site and all your efforts!

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      Sorry you didn’t get the alert. Don’t understand why… the widget is now refreshed. Thanks, P

  113. Adey says:

    …. Amazon just cancelled my order.

  121. Robin Pullen says:

  122. DaKraut says:

    Don’t know about you guys, but today I received an email from Amazon.co.uk that according to their Terms & Conditions when an items is more expensive than the price given, the order can’t be fulfilled. So they cancelled my order. Damn! Has this happened to anyone else?

  123. korova says:

    Just received a “price error, order cancelled” message from Amazon. Was worth a try anyway :(

  124. Paul Lewis says:

  127. Alan. says:

    Bugger. Just got an email from Amazon that “The price for `A Night At The Odeon’ (ASIN: B0157F5D3Q) was displayed incorrectly when you placed your order”, so they’ve now cancelled it.

    I don’t suppose there’s any comeback given they say it’s in their terms and conditions etc?

  128. Gavin Smith says:

    Hi all. Just received an email from Amazon re, the Queen Night At The Odeon box set offer.

    They’ve cancelled the order as the price was apparently a mid-print. They’ve offered me a reorder at full price.

  129. Dave Glennon says:

    Still it is always worth a go

    Top site – top notifications – keep it up

  135. Laszlo says:

    Unfortunately they cancelled my order, telling that they had a pricing error on the website.
    I placed my order immediately when I got the deal alert from you Paul, and Amazon acknowledged the order by an email.

  136. moog_man says:

    Ah, boo….. Just received notification from Amazon UK informing me they’ve now cancelled the order due to a pricing error.

    I thought it could be too good to be true.
    Just received email from Amazon cancelling my order for “Odeon”. They claim mispricing is to blame and invite me to buy at the current price. You gotta love them!!

  138. Tim says:

    I’ve just had an email from Amazon saying that the price was wrong and they have cancelled the order. How frustrating!

  139. Torsten Hendrichs says:

    Amazon UK has just sent a cancellation due to an “error” with the price. They know how to keep customers satisfied …

  140. Sean says:

    I just received notice that an incorrect price was listed and that my order was cancelled. Arrrgh!

  141. Steve says:

    Whaaat ! Amazon have now cancelled my order inspite of them acknowledging it. Presumably I haven’t a leg to stand on.

  142. Trevor says:

    Oh dear, just received Amazon email telling me that my order is cancelled as the item was priced incorrectly. Anybody else?

  143. Mike says:

    Order cancelled by Amazon, pricing error

  144. Narendra Kumar says:

    Just got a mail from Amazon saying that it was a pricing error and my order has been cancelled :-(

  145. Joey d'Entremont says:

    I just received this email from Amazon.uk today and needless to say I am extremely disappointed. I guess the moral of the story is “If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.” I’m now interested to know if anyone will actually receive this box set, or if everyone’s orders have been cancelled.

    12:15 email from Amazon to tell me my order was arriving earlier than expected – yay!

    14:41 email from Amazon to tell me my order has now been cancelled – boo!

  150. Paul Sinclair says:

    Yes, as many people have posted, Amazon seem to be cancelling orders. Which is annoying… although there was always a chance of that happening…

    • Steven McLaren says:

      Paul

      Will you therefore remove Amazon from your price comparisons as they can do this for anything now.

      • Paul Sinclair says:

        No. Amazon and any other online retailer have always been able to do this. It’s nothing new to be honest.

        • Steven McLaren says:

          Paul

          Can we get this post removed then as it all seems a bit pointless now not to mention really annoying.

          Steven

  151. zane richardson says:

    I ordered mine at 12:37, only a few minutes after the deal alert. Ordered 2 for good measure – yet have just received the following email from Amazon. Has this happened to anyone else??
    Note: I also received the ‘dispatching earlier than expected’ email, with a projected date of 16th-17th June (reduced from 24th-27th)

  152. zane richardson says:

    Sorry, I did check to see if anyone has posted a cancellation notice here before my own message but it seems the comments thread hadn’t updated at that point!

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      No worries. But no more comments about ‘my order has been cancelled’ please. Not much point everyone just repeating what others have said :)

  153. Adey says:

    Same here. After all the other emails from them regarding delivery etc its now been cancelled :(

  154. zane richardson says:

    I would be interested to know if anyone DIDN’T receive the cancellation email, and if they subsequently receive the box set at the deal price.
    Perhaps this would give us at least a small and flimsy wooden leg to stand on when contesting their ‘right’ to cancel?

  155. Phil says:

    My Amazon order for the Queen box set has just been cancelled too.

    BUT – the Pet Sounds set (which I bought at a reduced price from jpc.de, thanks to a SDE alert) has just arrived.

    Swings and roundabouts, I guess.

  156. DJ Control says:

    My order cancelled too! :…..( @gwynogue I eventually received the a-ha box set at the deal price but it took about two months for them to find one. re Queen…Amazon are usually pretty good at honouring mis-priced listings but this one would’ve been a pretty heavy hit selling this way below cost.

  157. Walter says:

    was displayed incorrectly when you placed your order…

  158. Mark says:

    Yep, cancelled as well. At least I’m still getting my £2 Prince vinyl order honoured. You win some, you lose some.

  159. Adam shaw says:

    Got the same email !
    Has everyone had there orders cancelled , even those who had prime orders saying they were dispatched?

  160. zane richardson says:

    I personally think they would have definitely profited somewhat from the error, with the box set then rising to #1 best seller, encouraging more orders at the normal price. Something smells fishy..

  161. zane richardson says:

    As of posting this comment:
    Amazon Bestsellers Rank: 21 in Music (See Top 100 in Music)
    #4 in Music > Box Sets
    #8 in Music > Rock
    #21 in Music > Pop

    This profitable box set will be nicely advertised on the landing page for anyone looking at music box sets or searching by genre, very clever Amazon.

  162. Steve says:

    Same :(

  163. Bren says:

    Cancelled order too, right after getting a getting a revised, quicker delivery date. Hmnnn….

  164. Eugene says:

    Damn it! Amazon just cancelled my order… Reading some previous posts here I was hoping for dispatch confirmation, but I had got cancellation e-mail instead. The price was to good to be true… Bad luck. ((

  165. Tim says:

    Yep, mine cancelled too. Isn’t there something about consumer rights and getting goods for the advertised price?

  166. Ronald says:

    My order is also cancelled by Amazon.

  167. Gary Shaw says:

    I won’t add my order cancelled email to this thread (I did get one), but will ask, were you at Garbage at the Troxy last night Paul? Thought I recognised that was you leaving, from your videos on here.

  168. Neil says:

    I had ordered It’s immaterial along with this and of course like everybody else i received the same cancellation email. I cancelled the It’s immaterial order and now i’m glad i didn’t d/l the autorip or they would have charged me for it. I hope whoever made that pricing error gets their p45.

  169. Grant says:

    Bummer! Amazon have just cancelled the order!!!

  170. KennyR says:

    Hopefully one person will receive it and then you can challenge Amazon on their inequity.
    Worked for me with the ABBA box set from Amazon Italy ;-)
