  1. John Norris says:

    I have been watching this for a while and although £28.99 does represent a significant saving on its normal £42-£46 price, is it really still that great value for 5 CDs of demos, alternate takes/mixes etc etc plus a 7″ single? The packaging has also had some very negative comments from those who have purchased it.

    Contrast it with a recent purchase of the Rory Gallagher Irish Tour 74 box which I picked up in HMV for £29,99 which comprises of 7 CDs + 1 DVD and I think I know where the value is.

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      It’s five pounds more than the Kylie 2CD+DVD sets…. if you’re a Kinks fan I don’t see much reason *not* to buy at this price. It could have had a sturdier slipcase though, that’s a fair comment.

  2. eric slangen says:

    great price and a great set. I already bought it when it came out but I’m glad it’s now at a better price for the people who didn’t grab it in the first weeks.

  3. colm47 says:

    Hi Paul

    It’s out of stock now at that price. It’s about 40 euro from amazon.de
    at the moment, which is around the same price.

    On a different note,I have never ordered from amazon.france, Paul.
    Do you know if they have the same pre price guarantee on certain pre orders like amazon.co.uk? That is, that you get the lowest price at point of sale as you probably know. I think you do.
    Was thinking of ordering Roxy Music LP box set from them.
    Thanks for your help.

  4. Charles Hodgson says:

    The fair thing to do on hard-pressed and exploited Kinks fans would be to issue the ‘previously unreleased’ tracks on a separate package for thise of us who already have the ‘Picture Book’ Box AND the BBC Box AND the Castle expanded CD’s AND the Deluxe 2CD sets already. S

    This set is still a screw-job at that price for the fans with all the previously released stuff.

    Sick of ‘effing gouging record companies / nearly-dead artists out for a last pocket-picking…

  5. Charles Hodgson says:

    To be fair I WAS happy to buy all the previous CD-age upgrades, but this Box is a step too far, as the only possible market that I can see for it is fans who will already have the previous reissues, to obtain just a few more tracks… Thanks, guys.

  6. Alistair Truscott says:

    At £7.99 I think I’ll just settle for the download!
