Deal alert / Various Artists: Concert for George / 2CD + 2 x Blu-ray

Time to take advantage of a fabulous price in the USA for the 2CD+2xBlu-ray combo pack of Concert for George which is released this Friday.

The price in America is amazing value, just $23 which equates to a little over £16! The very same set is £35 in the UK. I have confirmation from the label that the blu-rays are indeed region free and for those in the UK, the US price is cheap enough to save almost £10 after you’ve paid for shipping and amazon’s ‘import fees deposit’ (which means no ‘surprise’ charges). If you are in the States this is four-disc box set is an absolute giveaway!

This beautiful concert has never been available before as an audio/video package, so it’s well worth picking up, especially at this price.

  1. Peter says:

    Ordered a copy, and would you believe this is all new to me ? Never heard or seen anything from this set … Thanks for the heads up Paul!

  2. Paul Soper says:

    My curiosity got the better of me and i’v Just picked up the CD / Blu Ray set up from HMV.

    I can confirm the credits state the set is remastered, by David Lunsen at Lunsen mastering.

    • AndyB says:

      Um, Paul, ya batter find your glasses! “REMASTERED BY Gavin Lurssen, Lurssen Mastering”. Also, “DVD AUTHORING Abbey Road Interactive” and “BLU-RAY AUTHORING Mike Nack for Blink Digital.”

      The previous issues looked and sounded splendid anyway. Not sure how much this could be improved.

      • AndyB says:

        Just did some research. Lurssen also remastered George’s Apple Years box along “with Paul Hicks and Reuben Cohen and with the heavy involvement of George’s son Dhani.” (Quote from lurssenmastering.com)

      • Paul Sinclair says:

        Interesting. For the record, the official press release from Concord / Craft Recordings made no mention of remastering at all.

  3. Paul Soper says:

    Has it been confirmed whether this reissue is a new remaster, or is it the same as the original CD and Blu Ray release?

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      No it hasn’t. With no info to the contrary, I’m assuming it’s the same…

      • Paul Soper says:

        Thanks Paul.

        I’ve noticed the official site uses the term ‘remaster’, (minimally), but there’s no mention of this in descriptions on sites such as Amazon, so it’s confusing!

  4. Dibya Ghosh says:

    If the complete concert is on Disc 3, then why put the edited shorter/theatrical version on Disc 4 which is shorter and all of the material available on Disc 3 already. How much additional material is there in Disc 4?…Otherwise a good set. I have the DVD but trying to convince myself to go for this one. Any thoughts

    • Darryl says:

      hi mate,
      It will be like theoriginal 2-dvd release.
      The full concert is just that.

      The theatrical release intersperses concert footage with interviews,practice sessions.
      There is a great bit where you see the band practise “isn’t it a pity” then it segues into the live version.

      Not listed above, but I assume on disc 4 bluray it has the original bonus material e.g. about the 3 drummers !

  5. Richard says:

    thanks ~Paul not bad just 25 euro incl.

  6. The Golden Age Of SDE says:

    I’ve ordered from HMV, £2 more than Amazon US (£26.90). I decided to give a UK tax paying company my custom.

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      Amusing comparison. HMV, owned by Hilco Capital the global leader in “distressed investment and advisory services” who amongst their services to clients deliver “highly profitable store closure programmes”.

  7. AndyB says:

    Have the original CD set and DVD set, but I NEED this on blu ray. Ordered.

  8. Simon Taylor says:

    You got me, ordered. So annoying to be so expensive from amazon UK but i expect that price will drop eventually. But how long do you wait? Just as long as it doesnt drop before my order arrives from the US. But a great deal. Thank you.

  9. Peter Jenkins says:

    Many many thanks for the info
    Ordered and eagerly anticipated

  10. Grimble says:

    I’m not sure, but isn’t the customs threshold £18? If so there shouldn’t be any duty to pay.

  11. Mikko Suhonen says:

    The pre-order prive in concertforgeorge.com ja 28.99€. Not bad either.

  12. Wayne Olsen says:

    Done! Thank you thank you thank you!

  13. Runicen says:

    Consider that one ordered! Many thanks for the heads up. =)
