DEALS: Appear more generous than you are with these SDE Xmas gift ideas!

bf_4

Yes, it’s that time of year again! With December only days away, SDE makes no excuses for presenting you with some gift ideas for that special person in your life…YOU! But seriously… there are some fine deals below, including the Star Wars 2LP picture disc for a little over £16, the John Coltrane in Mono CD box for £25 and Dylan vinyl for a tenner. Amazon Germany still seems to be where it’s at – or wo es ist – even though ‘Black Friday’ is but a distant memory. Have a peruse, and if you find some other great deals leave a comment and we’ll add to the list.

INXS / All The Voices (10LP vinyl box) – £120

It’s very sad that Michael Hutchence isn’t around anymore and we’ll never know what music would have been produced with him as part of INXS. The good news is this vinyl box brings all the Hutchence era together including Elegantly Wasted which was never issued on the format. Welcome To Wherever You Are is still the SDE favourite.

starwars

Star Wars / 2LP picture disc – £16.50

This Star Wars double vinyl picture disc may as well have ‘brilliant christmas gift’ written all over it. It does feature John Williams’ fine soundtrack of course, but to be honest, a turntable is not even required – just hang this beauty on the wall.

coltrane

John Coltrane in Mono£25

Excellent six-CD set which contains the albums Giant Steps (1960), Bags & Trane (1961) with Milt Jackson, Ole Coltrane (1962), Coltrane Plays The Blues (1962), The Avant Garde (1966) with Don Cherry and The Coltrane Legacy. £15 cheaper than the UK price.

vu_nico

Velvet Underground & Nico (coloured vinyl) – £13

Simply an essential purchase for any serious music fan. This is the coloured vinyl pressing although the other VU albums are similarly priced and Loaded is even cheaper.

marvin

Marvin Gaye / Volume Two 1966 – 1970 £18

Great value for this seven-disc box set of Marvin Gaye albums issued in the second half of the 1960s.

grab2

chilipeppers

Red Hot Chili Peppers / By The Way (vinyl) – £12

By The Way is still, for me, the Chili Peppers’ best album. Despite being 16-tracks long (this is a double vinyl record) it plays like a tight, fat-free single and the quality simple does not drop at any point. Stunning, and a fantastic price.

grab2

dylan

Bob Dylan / Nashville Skyline (vinyl) – £9.50

Have a search around because there’s quite a few cheap Bob Dylan vinyl records on Amazon Germany right now, including Bringing It All Back Home for less than £10.

grab2

bends

Radiohead / The Bends (vinyl) – £16

Radiohead turned tradition on its head by making a rather weak first album, and delivering the sublime The Bends as their ‘difficult’ second long-player. This and OK Computer were the solid rock foundations that allowed them to not worry about sales of expectations and noodle around with synths as we headed into the new millennium.

grab2

cure

The Cure / Head on the Door (vinyl) – £12

The Cure‘s sixth studio album was issued in 1985. This album features the hit singles In Between Days and Close To Me.

grab2

vinyl_nevermind

Nirvana / Nevermind (vinyl) – £10

Nirvana’s classic 1991 album is a bargain at this price.

grab2

stones

The Rolling Stones / Their Satanic Majesties Request (vinyl) – £11

The cover of The Stones‘ sixth studio album was self-consciously ‘psychedelic’ and while the record is a bit patchy, there’s some standout moments in 2000 Light Years from Home and She’s a Rainbow.

duran

Duran Duran / Seven And The Ragged Tiger (2LP vinyl) – £11

grab2

falco

Falco / 4LP vinyl box – £40 (save £25)

    What happened to inxs the later lps being released individually? I only need Elegantly Wasted…

  2. Justin Isbell says:

    Bought the Nevermind vinyl from Morrisons in Reigate yesterday for £8, they also had Foo Fighters greatest hits and Stone Roses 1st for £7.50 and Amy Winehouse’s Back to Black for £6.

    • Simon F says:

      I think a visit to my local Morrisons in Letchworth (bloody big store) is in order. Let’s hope they are stocking vinyl there.

  3. Dean says:

    Precious little for the Non-Vinyl crowd here. :(

    • John says:

      @Dean
      That’s what I was thinking…

    • Neil says:

      I’m having nightmares about vinyl releases as 80% of the posts here are all vinyl and i know it’s not Pauls fault as he can only post whats available but i do wish vinyl would go back to where it belongs in the past.

  4. stephendking says:

    Thanks for yet another great update! Got 3 VU coloured LPs which I didn’t even know had been released though the Loaded reissue is not a new release. Did then find a yellow vinyl copy available through Newbury Comics which they are still selling online too. Prince LPs are quite well priced on Amazon.de too at moment. But I had to draw the line somewhere…. Cheers Paul!

  5. Zane Richardson says:

    Great post, Paul

  6. Martin says:

    Great stuff Paul picked up Chilli Peppers BTW and Californication plus the VU coloured – Cheers

  7. gwynogue says:

    Thanks for the Marvin Gaye heads up – but I went with Amazon UK because their shipping to Australia is cheaper than Amazon Germany. The boxes (I bought the other volumes too) were a little bit dearer (£20-24) but factor in postage from .uk instead of .de, I’ve saved a few quid…especially as Volume One seems to be 80 EURO (!!!) on .de.

    Cheers!

    Oh heaven, I should not look at this page anymore. Way too many temptations. Thank you for finding these. How do you do it?

  9. Rob says:

    Just been looking at the Newbury Comics https://www.newburycomics.com/ website Paul; all sorts of limited edition coloured vinyl going on, from The Beach Boys Christmas album on green vinyl, to Peter Tosh’s Legalize It, Lou Reed’s Transformer. MC5 Kick Out The Jams, Hendrix, Sonic Youth… Don’t know what their P&P charges are like.

  10. Chris Squires says:

    Just got 7 and the ragged Tiger to finish my DD 2 disc sets, it was 13e but still a bargain. Thanks for the heads up.

  11. Dave says:

    Also look out for the vinyl albums for 10 euros offer on Amazon France…

  12. Dave says:

    I can’t believe I’m actually going to say this having grown up in the 1970s, but here goes…

    I’M SO SICK OF STAR WARS I COULD DIE

    I would love to see the Hutchence-era INXS box on CD at an affordable price. I would snatch it up in a heartbeat.

    Otherwise pretty good deals.

  13. Mark Phillips says:

    Does satanic majesties have the 3D cover?

  14. Yani P says:

    I see John L has a lyric book out for an eye watering £400 !!!!!!
