  1. Peter MC Cormick says:

    Great price but will let it go as find it impossible to use the German site owing to language .

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      Hi Peter – Here’s a tip, try using google chrome browser – it does all the translating for you!

      • Peter Mc Cormick says:

        Google chrome .Even worse . Nothing is translated The translate button is even in German so don’t know where that is .Thanks anyway but this is really for people who know German and I don’t know one word of it .

  2. Philip says:

    Nio probs with Amazon Germany, it follows the same patterns as the UK site, and even lets you use the same log in and credit card details.

    This is a definite order for me, hopefully will see even cheaper prices in the UK, but this will do for now.

  3. Joachim says:

    I (german) order a lot at different amazon shops in languages I don’t understand and agree with Philip. They work more or less the same and you can use the same identity. I am always suprised how fast they deliver eg. from Italy or Poland (not to mention the lower prices compared to Germany).

  4. Barnaba says:

    Yeah, the pattern is pretty the same, so it should be a deafult-like buy :). I bought on Amazon Germany, Spain and Italy without problem. Buttons are the same and any additional text was easy to understand with google translate.

    The price is a real bargain! But I’m afraid those will be a cheep, budget cardboards. I also don’t see any booklet.

  5. Simon Taylor says:

    Rough Trade has this advertised at £35 in the UK so perhaps a good guess for UK price would be around £30 or just under. Either way this looks likely to be about a tenner less.

  6. Andy says:

    Currently €24.97 inc €3.80 UK delivery = £18.50. My 1st time ordering from Amazon Germany but Chrome translates fine. Pre-ordered. Cheers!

  7. Blade Runner says:

    Well, on jpc.de, they have also an English site, you can order the box for € 19,99 plus p+p.

  8. Trevor King says:

    Thanks for the alert. Had no problem with German Amazon, got mine for EUR 21,17 .

  9. Josh says:

    Wow, thanks for the tip. I’m in the U.S. and got it for $23 including shipping!

  10. Mig says:

    Excited by the 2CD “Greasy Truckers” set — has this been released before as a standalone Hawkwind album? Since it’s 2CD, there’s more here, I presume, than was on the 3CD version in 2007 (Hawkwind was only on disk 3)…and maybe in a better mix, too?

    • Peke says:

      2007 3 cd release didn’t include 1972 original lp mix-bonus tracks (Born to Go, Master of the Universe)

  11. Boaz says:

    Wonder if they are going to reproduce the gatefold sleeves. Also, that it’s not going to be flat and loud remasters.

  12. John. Murray says:

    Don’t know a word of German and never been on the German Amazon site in my life before. Still managed to successfully order this within 30 seconds – no probs!

    Nice bargain!!

  13. Gary says:

    Couldn’t turn this down. Thanks for the heads up Paul, and the info about Google Chrome.

  14. Mark says:

    The Canadian dollar sucks right now, but gas is cheap (for the first time in it-feels-like-forever), but it came to $37.77 including shipping from amazon.de regardless. Dirt cheap for 11 CD’s…. that’s less then $3.50 per disc!
    Like some of the above, I’ve never ordered from the German site before… UK, US & Canada, that’s it. But with Google Chrome it’s easy as can be.

    I’m totally stoked about the Pretty Things ‘Bouquets From a Cloudy Sky’ box (got the notice from Ugly Things that it shipped today), but this deal has got me even happier!

  15. Rik says:

    Last year I ordered a B.B. King box set from Amazon France, and it took over 3 months to arrive in Canada. Since no charge appeared on my card for many weeks, I assumed the order failed to go through. Regrettably I understand almost no French, so was unable to inquire about it. But surprisingly it did show up, and it was fine.

    As for this Hawkwind box, I can’t get too excited about it as I have all the music already. Now if all the discs had a 5.1 Surround option and there was a nice thick book with it, that would be a different matter!

  16. ChristopherM says:

    It’s now available at Amazon UK @£16.91.

    For UK residents, this works out a bit cheaper than Amazon Germany, if you select free delivery

  17. dave says:

    was £16.91, now gone up to £30 on Amazon uk

    but 24.97 euros=£18.55 on Amazon Germany site

  18. Jörgen says:

    This already out in Sweden since a few days. The remastered studio albums sound fabulous. Vastly improved compared to my ’96 remasters. Doremi have never sounded dirtier and sludgier to my ears :). Also nice with restored track lists, same as the original vinyls. Nice sleeves, gatefold for the first, Greasy, 1999 and Space Ritual. Could have been nice with a booklet with some info. The printing on the covers is too small for my old eyes :)…

  19. Sonic_Hawk on Dime says:

    I’d prefer to know a bit more about what’s meant by “remastered” before I buy a product that duplicates what I already possess.

    If it’s just an EQ tweak, then I’m not all that bothered really.

  20. psychrome says:

    The box says “Mastered by Peter Mew & Nigel Reeve at Abbey Road Studios, London”. I guess they didn’t use Abbey Road just to fiddle with the knobs… :)

  21. Ken says:

    Gone up to 29.99€ on German site now
