    It seems Nirvana release date has been changed to 13 November 2015

  2. Tom says:

    The Isley Brothers set looks great. It doesn’t seem to be getting as much hype as some of the other sets released this month.

  3. JL says:

    MyPlay cancelled my signed Paul Young order with no reason given. I guess I’m not buying it.

    • Kiefer2 says:

      Where do you live? I hope it’s not that they will only ship to certain countries (Like the Lisa Stansfield/Donna Summer boxes)!

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      Strange… have you tried contacting customer services?

      • JL says:

        I contacted them last night. No response yet.

        • Paul Sinclair says:

          If you haven’t heard back in the next 24 hours let me know and I will try and sort.

          • JL says:

            It is sorted out. My credit card expired and switched over to the new expiration date. Even though I paid through amazon, which adjusted automatically, it did not do so via the MyPlay order. Thanks for offering to help Paul!

  4. JL says:

    U.S. I guess that might be the issue?

  5. Chris says:

    Any sense of where the best deal on the Isley set is currently?

  6. Eric says:

    Looking forward to the PY “behind the scenes” chat later in the week. I ended up pre-ordering with amazon, so it might turn up in time to coincide with the SDE feature!

  7. Tom says:

    Totally off-topic but is it just me who thinks that is a totally different woman on the cover of Lisa Stansfield’s live release? It looks like a completely different woman to me! lol

  8. seikotsi says:

    Tom – I thought the same!

  9. gary C says:

    Does anyone have a problem with getting CD1 out of the Paul Young case? 3 and 4 came out easily enough, not sure how they go back in and stay in tho. CD2 i had to slide out from under CD1, just feels like its hammered in there :(

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      They are fiddly… you’re supposed to ‘push down’ gently on the CD I think and (in theory) it comes out.

      • gary C says:

        cheers Paul,
        where in the music world can you talk to a guy who helped curate a reissue, and also ask the same person advice on dealing with ‘fiddly’ CD cases?
        Nowhere, is the short answer…

  10. rob iles says:

    Paul, Just wanted to say a big thank you …. Not only for your contribution of the Paul Young release, but had I not been a member of YOUR site – I’d have probably missed it.

    Just back after a miserable holiday (great British weather!) to receive the delivery (signed copy!) and after listening to CD1, I can’t wait to hear the next 3!!!

    Great mastering, great selection, amazing price.

    Thanks again for SDE!!!

  11. Eric says:

    Hurrah, I got an undamaged, unbroken set at the 3rd attempt. When it’s *right*, the mechanism isn’t too fiddly and the discs slip in and out without fuss. Looking forward to listening to all this stuff.

    What happened to the PY article this week on SDE though?

  12. Eric says:

    Okay, will look forward to it!
