    Where is YELLO????? And their new album “Toy”??? Deluxe edition is also on its way…

  2. Charles Hodgson says:

    The Rolling Stones In Mono Box Set is today listed as “currently unavailable” on, with this message on the item page:

     “We don’t know when or if this item will be back in stock”

    Any idea what is up, and what this means for pre-orders?

  3. johnny says:

    Charles, you can check your amazon pre-orders, and mine still says Stones in Mono to be delivered in first few days of October. Perhaps they have just sold out of their pre-order allocation?

    • richie says:

      Johnny, when Amazon say they are going to deliver something on a certain day/few days don`t always take them for granted. I had Love`s `Forever Changes***` Mofi 2x45rpm on order and Amazon said that they would deliver 05/0916. It didn`t show, my order then said 2-3 weeks Amazon`s default delivery estimate. I found that other people who ordered after me did receive the LP(s). I love (geddit) this album and after reading the reports on the mastering/pressing quality (the best ever!) I had to have it. I cancelled my order and paid £50+ from Scott Namgle (on-line audiophile dealer), delivered immediately. Regarding your order for The Stones `Mono Box`, I reckon you will get your order as promised, I have it on order also, delivery on Friday. I cancelled my order for the vinyl box (a bargain £252) how many issues of Stones albums do I need?

      ***The greatest rock album ever made. OOAA but they are wrong.

  4. Paolo says:

    Suede’s second album was ‘Dog Man Star’.

  5. gwynogue says:

    I’m holding my breath to see what I get charged for Graham Parker – Amazon Germany cancelled my original pre-order (at the too-good-to-be-true price) but when it was (very) briefly listed again at a similar t-g-t-b-t price a couple of weeks ago, I decided to give it a second chance. Once again, the price jumped up and has been yo-yo-ing ever since, but no cancellation this time and my order page appears to be honouring my second-attempt price. We. Shall. See.

  6. Aaron says:

    Looks like Townshend’s Iron Man is also reissued.

    • DaveM says:

      And psychoderelict and White City also. Wasn’t going to bother with these, but on playing Truancy again and comparing to some of the SPVs I have, there is a subtle improvement in sound on some tracks which is bared out on the DR data.

      On the Rolling Stones mono box, if anyone does read all the Hoffman thread on it as I have, it will likely put you off, dependant on what you already have. Also, it ain’t no Beatles in mono box in terms of presentation.

  7. John Lloyd says:

    What… in a week when Kraftwerk tickets are on sale, people will be buying this bag of pants??

  8. Dogfacedboy says:

    The Stones mono box vinyl run allocation to the UK was less than expected which has led to many retailers not getting their expected copies.

  9. RJSWinchester says:

    The latest issue of Mojo features a nice Lou Reed compilation CD stuck to the cover with 15 original tracks taken from the RCA & Arista album collection. I normally bin cover mounted CDs and keep the jewel cases to replace broken ones in my collection, but this one’s a keeper.

  10. Howie says:

    The unboxing of the Stones mono box on Analogue Planet has put me off straight away. It’s like the Beatles Mono box set but done on the cheap. Nasty washed out covers, mish mash of UK and USA releases. I’m sticking to my 1964-1969 box, the early ones are in mono anyway. The term wasted opportunity is overused but perfectly describes this release.

  11. Charles Hodgson says:

    Thanks for the comments about the Stones In Mono Box. It honestly never occurred to me that Amazon may have sold out of it’s initial quantity. I’m not usually in the habit of ordering such “high volume” / popular items!

    John Lloyd: re Kraftwerk live tix. Enjoy spending in the region of £100 to watch one original member switch tapes on and off do you? Hope there’s a good lights / film show!

    • John Lloyd says:

      The only accurate piece of that comment is the ‘one original member’ bit. The incorrect statement about tapes being switched on and off is facile, the film show will be the world-renowned 3D experience, and tickets where I intend to see it are £75 tyvm. Under a column concerning Sting, Suede, Deacon Blue and Van “Foghorn” Morrison, I stand by the idea there’s only one thing to spend your money on this week, and that is the rare experience of seeing an act that actually changed the world’s musical culture.

    • Straker says:

      Prices on the last lot of Kraftwerk gigs were pretty silly with MoMA patrons in New York paying about $30 IIRC while their South Bank gigs in London were £60 and up if I remember rightly. No wonder the UK is dubbed “Treasure Island” by those who have stuff to flog! Strong case to be made that Kraftwerk are their own tribute band these days!!

  12. Andrew Mogford says:

    £126 for Temple of the Dog. Really wanted the BD Audio but when you look at the prices they’re effectively charging you £110 for that one disc. Absolutely ridiculous!
