    Paul,are you going to do a review of the TD box? cheers.

  2. Gisabun says:

    Find it a bit odd that the single CD release of ZZ Top’s compilation is out this week but the 3CD set comes out in 2+ months from now.
    [Maybe they’ll get suckers to by the 1CD release and by the time the 3CD release is out, they can;’t return the 1CD. :-) ]

  3. Simon says:

    Her entire back catalogue is out on double vinyl reissues next month, already pre-ordered Rythm Nation!

    So after amazon initially told me it was a scamming email, and I called them to say not happy, they told me it’s an “experiment” with certain customers to see what would happen if changed policy on preorder charging and they would not do it again , and gave me a whole £5 credit . I still have no idea what album I paid for early before release but it has made me realise how much I spend with them via preorder (no wonder seven boxes turned up Sunday)
    What a bit of disastrous customer service to change a charging policy as an “experiment” without telling the customer.

    • Larry Davis says:

      That was an EXPERIMENT#$!?!? Not good whatsoever!! I will have to call them and express my anger, dissatisfaction and frustration with this policy/not policy…and I may upload my current card info if they apologize and offer something to get my business back…

  5. Paul E. says:

    SDE covers a lot of ground so I thought I’d mention that Calexico and Iron & Wine have a new release out June 14th. “Years To Burn” is the second installment from this duo – if it’s half as good as 2005’s “In The Reigns” that’ll do just fine.

    • DaveM says:

      @Paul E. , was going to mention Years to Burn myself and agree with your latter comment about In the Reins. YTB potentially could be the album of the year so far, although its going to have to be special to beat the recent National album.

  6. Richard says:

    If anyone missed out before Amazon now have the new Abba singles box set available for £72.

  7. Phil says:

    Re: Amazon charging in advance. Personally cancelled over £700 worth of pre-orders, including the Tangerine Dream and King Crimson sets. Also cancelled Prime. I’ll bet it didn’t take too many customers doing similar for them to reverse their policy change.

  8. Alan B says:

    It’s HMV “exclusive” vinyl day on Saturday. Some of the releases are not exclusives as such though. Some are genuine HMV only releases, some are UK only releases but available in other countries (e.g. REM Best Of blue vinyl) and some are genuinely not exclusive (the two U2 coloured vinyls can be bought from the Official U2 Store now and you don’t have to wait until Saturday) Quite a large selection this year.

  9. Finthin says:

    Thanks Paul. The amount of new releases this week and this mouth may cause me to file for bankruptcy. Love the website and keep up the great work.

  10. AdamW says:

    Since you mentioned Janet Jackson, are we going to get a SDE of “Rhythm Nation 1814” for its 30th anniversary? I don’t know how much remastering it might or might not need (I always thought it sounded fine), but a few extra discs’ worth of remixes and demos and a DVD or Blu-ray of the voluminous associated video content would be VERY worthwhile for the newly RnRHOF-inducted singer.

    • Stephen smalley says:

      Totally agree with you! Brilliant album that deserves lavish attention! I was also disappointed that they never released a further DVD of all her singles up to where “From Janet” started. The 5.1 mixes on there were great would of loved to have heard all her earlier stuff mixed like that.

    • Graham Turner says:

      I’m still waiting for Control Deluxe :-(

  11. Jonathan Riley says:

    According to the musicvaultz.ca site the tangerine dream isnt coming out until july

    Re The Amazon Charging in Advance debate, looks like lots of cancellations, bad for business etc. Just received the following notice
    “Hello,
    We are contacting you about a recent error on your account relating to your Amazon order #XXXXXXXXXXX charged before your pre-order item was dispatched.
    If you wish to pay only at the time of dispatch, you may cancel your pre-order to get a full refund. If you place a new pre-order for the same item we will only charge you once your item dispatches. If you take no action, then your item will be dispatched as normal.
    We apologise for the inconvenience caused and thank you for your understanding.
    Sincerely,
    Customer Service Department

    • Stuart Ansell says:

      I got 6 of those today! Phoned to point out that this contradicted their earlier assertion that it was a change in policy, and was rewarded with a £10 credit to say sorry. Maybe this is them trying to reverse the policy quietly.

    • David Bourgoin says:

      I also received that email in relation to my TD order. However I haven’t received one yet for a book I have pre-ordered that doesn’t come out until July.

      I haven’t dared pre-order anything else recently until I know whether or not I will be charged immediately.

      • BJ says:

        As I’ve said before, it’s weird, as I had plenty on pre order and no monies were taken early. Wondered if they just tried it on a sample of customers to see what the reaction would be?

    • Dean says:

      Wow, it boggles the mind. Such a PR disaster that. They clearly saw people cancelling their pre-orders (I personally cancelled 6) and have reversed themselves.

    • Michael John says:

      Interesting. I pre order multiples of the same release from a number of countries (US, UK, Germany & Canada mostly) because you never know when one will drop in price for a day (hour). This way I lock in the lowest when that happens and don’t have to monitor prices 24/7 and hope I’m ordering at the lowest point. Then, the Sunday prior to the Friday release I go and cancel all but the cheapest. Went thru my routine yesterday and canceled somewhere around 30 items in all. Didn’t get the email above though. Really hope they don’t change their policy.

  13. Dean says:

    The Tangerine Dream is the big hitter here. :-)

  14. Rob Iles says:

    I’m looking forward to the arrival of “Joy Division / Unknown Pleasures 40th anniversary red vinyl LP” which I pre-ordered. I fancy the Janet release too, but all my money this week will be spent on the HMV exclusives this coming Saturday (if my local has what I want!)

    Also worth noting, Janets’ control, control remixes, rhythm nation (and more) all on vinyl re-issue in July.

    I pre-ordered the Madonna CD from FNAC as there are exclusive tracks, but having heard the 5 that have been released so far, kinda wished I hadn’t bothered!

  15. Dan says:

    Madame X is getting great reviews I see. Looking forward to this.

    • Michael says:

      Crave is good. I rise is OK. I’m gonna wait for my library to get it. After the last 2 albums. No. I’ve been buying her music since holiday as well. She was a great pop star. Which is not the same thing as a great artist or musician.

  16. BJ says:

    Not the last in the Buzzcocks releases, they’ve just announced a live album on coloured vinyl, albeit on Demon. https://www.demonmusicgroup.co.uk/catalogue/releases/access-all-areas-buzzcocks-live-1990-vinyl-picture-disc-2/
