    Paul, your link goes to Amazon.it . So you should change your description accordingly ;-).

  2. Simon F says:

    Got it! Thanx for the tip-off Paul. Really looking forward to this one!

  3. Horst says:

    It’s 62 € again :(

  4. richie says:

    Thanks Paul, I`ve been waiting for this to fall to a decent price. I`ve ordered it but I wouldn`t be surprised if it fell further on Amazon UK after the release date. Example; Calexico`s `Edge Of The Sun` 2 LP – £24 before the release date, after release it drops to £14.68!

  5. Simon F says:

    I know I’m probably being a bit paranoid here, especially after having snapped up a copy on Amazon Italy (incidentally the price is still at this mornings bargain so check it out) but will all the printed material ie album sleeves, booklet etc be in English or Italian. Not a lot of use to me if it is the latter. Can anyone help? Do record companies make local language versions or is it English across the world? Thanx.

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      Get this question a lot. The answer is record companies do not print booklets etc in multiple languages. It’s not economically feasible, basically. What you might get is stickers on the front of the box in non-English language, but that’s about it.

  6. spaceboy says:

    I want this but I think I’ll wait for an equally good deal from Amazon.UK. I get nervous when I can’t read the text…

    • richie says:

      What`s to worry about, if you use Chrome it will translate for you, me? I never bother, the layout on all the Amazon sites is similar – simples.
