  1. Greg says:

    FYI, importcd.com in the the US is selling it for $55.79 and they have the Chicago Blu-ray box for $116.72. There shipping costs within the US are very low, not sure about the ROW. I think they would be a good addition to the widget and their pricing might influence other retailers.

    • RJSWinchester says:

      I suspect it’s all to do with retailer’s affiliate programmes (i.e. this site gets a commission every time someone clicks thru and orders the product in question from the linked sites).

    • Dave says:

      International shipping from Import CDs for the Pet Sounds 50th anniversary five-disc box set came up as USD$6.99 when I put it in my cart and selected country (NZ) and post code. This is unusual – $6.99 (plus $1.99 per each extra item) is Import CDs standard shipping rate; there is usually an extra charge for heavier items such as box sets. When I almost ordered it about two weeks ago, the Import CDs shipping came up as USD$11.99. I agree with Greg’s suggestion that Import CDs be added to the widget. I mostly buy from Amazon UK, but quite often buy from Import CDs. Import CDs trades as “all your music” on Amazon UK.

  2. RJSWinchester says:

    I’ll stick with The Pet Sounds Sessions box set. Cost me £14.99 brand new direct from Amazon UK about 12 months ago!

  3. Pim says:

    Right now I can’t even justify 42 pounds for something which contains so little new audio… I’ll wait until it hits the bargains, like the Made In California box did. Right now I can still enjoy my 1990 CD, the PS Sessions box, the DVD-A, the orange/green LP, the 1999 Classic Vinyl reissue etc etc :)

    • Bassel says:

      If you have the pet sounds sessions,just buy the two disc edition for the live tracks and you will have most of the tracks, except for 2 tracks or so

      • RJSWinchester says:

        Personally, the live tracks hold no interest whatsoever but the Stack-O-Vocals on this box set are to die for. Absolutely gorgeous.

  4. Brian says:

    What Greg said above – if you’re buying the big box, importCDs.com is the best price around.

  5. Randy Layton says:

    Nice -went to that import.com site as earlier poster recommends and gettng slammed with a ransom ware virus. Great!

  6. JudeMac says:

    Plain and simple for the collector. Which is what I am, everyone else the mono version is fine & those who want stereo that is still available as the mono/stereo CD.
