  1. Alex says:

    Ordered. Was waiting for this. Thanks Paul.

  2. David M says:

    Tempted, but 11 (ELEVEN) versions of Promised you a Miracle etc may be one or two too many. It’s a great track, but not that great.

  3. Adam says:

    You can’t fault them on the content of these box sets, I just wish they’d had a variation where you could buy the blu ray audio disc instead of the DVD.

    • John says:

      @Adam
      Totally agree about the Blu-ray.
      I hope to get it cheap in the future and then replace the DVD with the Blu-ray.
      But it would have been better if we could choose a boxset with Blu-ray.

  4. Charles K. says:

    Worth every penny, order it if you haven’t!

  5. Pascal says:

    Ordered it on the Spanish site. For buyers outside the UK it’s much cheaper there.

  6. John says:

    Ordered one. Glad I waited a little while for the price to come down.
    Perhaps it’s getting even cheaper but you never know.

  7. Justin (uk) says:

    Same here- cheers paul

  8. Straker says:

    £27.27 with postage from Spain (bloody Brexit!). UK with autorip prob makes more sense for me. Ta!

  9. scott says:

    Hopefully it will come down in price a bit further. A while back I managed to get the Sparkle In The Rain SDE for £18.94 at Great Offer Store.

  10. Paul Nolan says:

    Great deal on Amazon.es 34.00 euro with express shipping to Ireland will get it by thursday..
    I dont get why people buy cds for the Autorip when it is cheaper elsewhere… you can always rip it from the cds yourself when you receive it..

  11. Dennis says:

    amazon.es is now up to 33.87 EUR (approx 30.70 UKP)

  12. Paul E. says:

    Oh well, I could have saved 1.92 GBP off my original pre-order purchase price. Have been enjoying this one quite a bit and recommend the purchase (especially now).

  13. Le Baron says:

    Simple Minds’ The Vinyl Collection 1979 -1984 box set is currently £54.99 on Amazon.UK.
    Not a bad price… :)

    • Gary C says:

      Many comments around the site saying stay away from the vinyl, loads of issues. I sent back two boxes before giving up

      • Matt Harper says:

        For the record (heh – no pun intended!), I have the vinyl set from the last sde price bulletin. All perfect & sound fine.

  14. Daltronica says:

    Newbie question. I know what autorip is, how does it apply here? A limitation on how you rip to mp3?
    Bought anyway so I’ll find out!

    • Dan says:

      Basically when you purchase the physical CD or vinyl or boxset, Amazon will allow you to download the MP3 version straight away, the MP3s are the versions they sell in their digital store, so it’s a great deal really, especially if you don’t have CD drive like me, due to Apple getting rid of them.

  15. kittens69 says:

    Thoroughly recommend. Hearing the full durations of these tracks and the B-sides has been a total joy for the last couple of months.

  16. Derek Langsford says:

    Don’t expect the album remaster to blow your socks off. The most disappointing remaster of the 3 albums that have been SDEd IMO: boomy bass and clipped high end. Still wish they had fixed the 5.1 mix as well. Glad to have the alternative mixes and b-sides but was hoping to be wowed by the whole set after the very good prior album remasters and living with the unsatisfactory 5.1 of the DVD-A from 2005 (two tracks [CFatCW, PYaM) not mixed from multi-track). This will likely be the last reissue of the album in these formats.

  17. DJ Control says:

    Thanks again SDE & Paul S. ordered!

  18. Dave says:

    Amazon US back up to $49 USD. I guess I missed it.

    I would like to see this packaging with a BR-A disc instead of DVD.

  19. Alan Jones says:

    Simple Minds fan since 78. If you know and love the original album, then you need to hear The Alternative Mixes, Roughs And Demos disc which add some exciting twists and turns and for me is the jewel here as I already had the original DVD Audio. I agree the blu-ray should have been included though. Just also to say that I’ve had no problem with the vinyl box set and sounds excellent on my Linn.

  20. Paul English says:

    Great price – if you’re on the fence, don’t delay.

    Nice to see respect for 7″ edits, 12″ mixe, B-sides etc on this set – unlike some other artists I could mention.

  21. mike says:

    Sure it will go cheaper, all the others have.

  22. Pete {in Australia} says:

    THANKS as Always Paul, for deal alerts. being in Australia, not always lucky to get them. I managed to get this a bit cheaper, when it was released, so instead of waiting for it to drop in price, i grabbed it. I was on a roll, as I had just grabbed “Sparkle” {super cheap from Recordstore uk} and thanks to an alert from you “Once Upon a Time” cheap from Amazon UK.

  23. Gyula says:

    Only thing is why the box is smaller a bit then the previous 2 releases? :(

  24. Billy Dojcak says:

    Missed it, but I’ll keep looking.

  25. John says:

    Received my copy from Amazon Spain only 2 days after I’d ordered it.
    Very happy with this bargain!
    But a bit disappointed to see that they didn’t use gold ink printing.
    I don’t think there’s been any CD release of this album that had it even though every single vinyl release I’ve ever seen has gold ink printing. It’s not that expensive so I don’t understand why they didn’t do it with this definitive release.
