    Bloody hell, whatever next. A ‘personal stone’? Who thought that one up. Otherwise a fantastic way to lauch a new album. I wish ’em well with this…

  2. Stevie B says:

    Amen to that, looks like a good set. Perhaps Mick, Keith, Charlie and Ronnie could offer something similar as part of an SDE for their band’s next album. A personal Stone for four lucky collectors to keep on a shelf at home. I’d plump for Charlie…he’d make a nice conversation piece.

  3. Howie says:

    Ten out of ten for the poor bugger who was given the job of trying to promote this sets unique selling points. When it comes down to the weight of a cotton tote bag, even if it’s 100% natural, you know your in trouble.

    Stone? what gall !

  5. Broadway says:

    Al Stewart- I wish they release SuperDeluxe Edition of of Year Of The Cat, one of my favorites

  6. mike says:

    Like all their sets slightly overpriced (Remote, Livewire, Xmas Day), they do charge their fans a premium i feel.. thats capitalism Mr Kane!

    • John says:

      Well I’m stumping up £50 for the OMD album box set this autumn, and yes it has a book and not a stone, but the making of DVD doesn’t sound as comprehensive, and the demo tracks nowhere near as complete. I get a pointless vinyl copy of the album, not pointless 7″ of ‘exclusive tracks’, but I don’t get a tote bag and nothing like a separate live recording. In other words, a starting price of £40 for this, whether it goes down or not, is pretty flipping good!

  7. Stuart Russell says:

    “A personal stone”; the shark has officially been jumped!

    I’ll look forward to the new album but this is one box set I’ll pass on.

  8. Klaus says:

    Finally a freebie that’s easy to download without a code or any additional cost – just load the stone down into your pocket ;-))

  9. Joe T. says:

    As one of their few American fans (who has followed their career for 30 years) I am thrilled with this release. It’s full of content from various media. Pat Kane has one of the best voices ever to come out of British pop. The lyrics are always a cut above the rest. If they are not your cup of tea, so be it. But it’s sad to see the litany of derogatory remarks that are pointless. I guess some people have too much time on their hands.

    Style over content emperor’s new clothes, one box to definitely pass on.

  13. RJS says:

    “certificate of authenticity”

    That’s very important. I can see the market being flooded with bootleg copies.

  14. David Crozier says:

    I wonder how much Paul McCartney would have charged for this? £199? £249?

  15. Neil McL says:

    What if they bootleg the certificate of authenticity lol. I suppose they may not know the colour of the stones

  16. Richard L Harrison says:

    Kinda disappointed in people’s reactions to this set. It’s only thirty quid and people are treating it like the world’s greatest rip-off! You get 4 CD’s of great music and for the uber fans, a few little extras on top! What’s wrong with that? Yeah, the stone in a bag is a bit of a lame idea, but to write off the whole set for the sake of one misstep is pretty sad.

  17. Garry Dickson says:

    The standard version appears on Amazon at 9.99 for a 2 CD set but only 1 CD is tracklisted? I am assuming that the single CD is correct – but if not – what is the second CD here
