  1. Andy says:

    Bought the set through Amazon Italy using the log in details to my UK account. £59.80 including postage, a bargain!

  2. Mark W says:

    Went for the triple vinyl edition that came out this month, as it had all I wanted (apart from the book). It has the mono album, assorted mono tracks (singles, b sides etc) on disc two, and Pet’s demos on disc three. I didn’t want the stereo mixes with them adding overdubs 50 years later!

  3. Graham Gardner says:

    Grabbed! Cheers for the heads up Paul.

  4. Dave H says:

    Also a good price on Amazon Italy is the Bob Dylan 1966 live box set. Around £72 at time of writing 1:28pm GMT 17/2/17.

  5. eric slangen says:

    ordered, thanks Paul.

    The Lou Reed vinyl box 1 is also just 68 euro.

  6. Paolo Meccano says:

    Still too pricey for me. I already have the mono CD and the unadulterated stereo mixes of the previous deluxe edition, so I can’t justify spending fifty-odd quid for three discs. Let me know if it drops another twenty pounds…

  7. Jim says:

    Thanks. Just got the deal.

  8. Hugh says:

    If this was a Roger and Pete scheme to intercept Sgt Pepper dollars, well…IT’S BRILLIANT AND IT ABSOLUTELY WORKED.

    Smoking deal, in for one.

  9. Snood says:

    Can;t beat this – still 111 dollars in Amazon USA – only 52 dollars shipped on Amazon UK!! Thank You

  10. Sean says:

    Got one cheers Paul

  11. Andy S says:

    Thanks Paul! This somewhat makes up for me missing the Rush super deluxe deal the other day…

  12. Felipe says:

    Thank you I was waiting for this drop for months. Now if it drops again don’t tell me! Apart from the double deluxe, I treasure the Virgin LP I bought in 1981

  13. John Ireland says:

    Thanks. I just had to bag this

  14. Robert Styles says:

    Thanks muchlyPaul. I have just ordered a copy from Amazon U.K.

  15. Leo Wubbolt says:

    I ordered this Cd-box about a month ago at an earlier Deal Alert. There is only one big thing wrong with this box, which is the sound quality. Awful sounding pressings, blurry, noisy with no musical detail. A pity, the contents are musts-to-have. I regret I bought it. I should mention that in my possesion already were the ‘My Generation SACD” and their ”My Generation SHM-CD UICY-93533/4 pressed in Japan. Comparing these releases with this new 5-CD box arises the question : Why couldn’t Universal get the job done ?

  16. Noel Fitzsimons says:

    Thanks ever so much for this alert. Another great bargain.

    Still thrilled with the Human League – Anthology. I find as I did with the recent Marc Almond & Bowie box sets on Amazon – if you get in right at the start before the actual release – one can make considerable savings.

    But its all thanks & high praise to SDE : Deal Alert !!

    Got this puppy in the post yesterday – 51 bucks including postage! Thanks for the heads up Paul.
