Peter Gabriel vinyl pricing drop
When Peter Gabriel‘s So, Us and Up were announced as half-speed 45RPM vinyl remasters the prices were outrageously high everywhere, except for the PG store. Thankfully, as expected, these are now much lower and the triple albums are around the £25 mark.
ABC‘s The Lexicon of Love II doesn’t manage to top either the proper album chart (number five) or the physical chart (number three) but this can still be regarded as a triumph and let’s face it if this album hadn’t been called The Lexicon of Love then would it have performed anywhere near as well as this? Seems unlikely.
Elsewhere, Parlophone’s reissue of David Bowie‘s CHANGESONEBOWIE drops like a stone from number 17 to 100. I guess this just shows that most fans that wanted this pre-ordered it, and beyond them, the appeal is ‘more selective’ to borrow from Spinal Tap.
The Very Best Of Prince seems to have taken up residency in the number five position. Things have calmed down a little bit and now only four Prince albums are in the top 100 including Purple Rain and Sign ‘O’ The Times. That will probably change soon as the vinyl reissues kick in this July, starting with Around The World In A Day.
