  1. Thom says:

    Fantastic – that’s probably half the price I’ve paid for any other edition in the set so far. Thanks for the heads up!

  2. Paul English says:

    How long does the pre-order price guarantee take to update?

    I ordered this set on 13 November. It’s been around £61 since ordering.

    Thanks for pointing out that it’s now fallen to £26.09 – but the price in my order still says £61. Should it not automatically change?

  3. Gary says:

    Yeah but that’s if Amazon actually ship it. I was recently stiffed on this sort of thing when I pre ordered the Lee Hazlewood box set and Amazon so far haven’t managed to ship out that.

    • Paul English says:

      Gary
      Which version of the Lee Hazlewood did you order?

      I pre-ordered the deluxe one for £102 off Amazon UK. They shipped last week and it arrived in a couple of days.

  4. Gary says:

    Paul, mine was the deluxe version too. Pre-ordered for around the £100 mark. As of yet I still haven’t recieved a copy. But I do live in Sweden so it always takes a bit longer. Wow I’m filled with hope now. Cheers Paul.

    By the way I ordered this Motown box. How can you not?
