    A worthy mention for a few more Sainsbury’s special vinyl releases as well (out last week, only just found out about them at the weekend), we have the following:

    Madonna – Like A Virgin – Clear Vinyl
    Madonna – Ray Of Light – Double Blue Vinyl
    Pretty Things – S. F. Sorrow – Red Vinyl

  2. Leemer says:

    Overwhelming to say the least! Spoiled for riches.

  3. alex says:

    hasn’t been announced but there’s a repress of the great The Jimi Hendrix Expérience 8-Lp Vinyl boxset from 2000 coming out on friday too.

  4. Auntie Sabrina says:

    If you think this weeks releases are poor, Nick Knowles and Bradley Walsh’s “albums” are out in November…

  5. Aaron says:

    Can anyone comment on Amazon France’s shipping/packaging to the US? I would love to get the 10 Year War since it’s not available in the US but have mixed results on items getting to me undamaged from international Amazon stores.

    • Eric Thiessen says:

      Have had two shipments to the US from Amazons Fr and It with no issues at all.

    • JP says:

      When I order from EU I always order from JPC.de, their packaging is excellent. Never a problem.

      After numerous items received from European amazon locations have arrived damaged, and sent in laughably inadequate packaging, I just refused to buy anything further from them.

      • CJ says:

        I’ve had mixed results with European Amazon stores. For the most part, things have come through fine, but the disasters have been HUGE ones. When I got the Belinda Carlisle Anthology, the box was so damaged, the post office literally refused to deliver it to me. I had to go to them to get it so I could open it in front of them in case there was actual damage to the item so they could certify the return. I have no idea how the set was actually not damaged–it should have been completely destroyed. The box it came in looked like it had been run over by a plane.

    • Wes says:

      I’ve had multiple issues with the packaging from Amazon FR. To the point where I contacted their management to report the repeated incidence of under-packed and damaged records being sent to my US address. This is very atypical from Amazon in general and I’ve purchased much vinyl from their UK, Germany, Italy, Canada (and mostly) US websites. On the Dylan Triplicate deluxe edition release Amazon FR destroyed two copies by grossly under-packing them, and then refused to send a third copy– when the whole mess could have been resolved by simply putting it in a double box with padding — typical for an overseas shipment– they just could not get it together and insisted upon refunding my money after I returned the second ruined copy. This despite sending them photos that made the situation plain. For what it’s worth…

      • Chris Squires says:

        My experience of European Amazon has been fine. However I think this has a lot to do with much of the stock coming from within the UK anyway.

        What I have liked about Amazon Germany, and it has happened twice in the last couple of weeks, is that because I have called them up about an item being opened / unsealed on arrival or black vinyl sent when coloured vinyl was ordered they have let me keep the open / black copy and they have then sent a sealed / coloured copy.
        This also happened with jpc.de this week, it was split open and slightly damaged copy and instead of just doing the simple thing and sending a new copy they insisted I posted it back, which was fair enough I suppose, but it was £8.60 international postage for a double LP untracked. I even sent pictures to prove I wasn’t lying , but with my trouble to post back, the cost of return postage it would probably have been cheaper for them, and better goodwill for me, for them just to send a new copy. But I suppose as a smaller company they are wary of scammers…which is probably quite sensible.

        Ordering abroad is hit (95%) and miss (5%) and when it goes well it can be fine, it’s only when it goes wrong that I start to think twice. But AM.DE have been superb about it.

  6. Redders says:

    After last week, my bank balance needs a quieter week. :-)

  7. Dan says:

    Finally a week off spending.

  8. andrew R says:

    How about 2 vinyl for 30 euro at amazon italy?
    Tempted ?

  9. Alan B says:

    I pre-ordered from Amazon The Queen is Dead 2017 double CD in July. I got charged £11.99 on Friday on its release. Just checked on the Amazon website and it is down to £11.00. I know over time prices can and do drop – but after 3 days? It’s outrageous to penalise customers who pre-ordered months ago.

  10. Jake says:

    A brutal week for me… the Whitesnake set, the Bill Bruford box set, and the King Crimson release from Chicago. Friday is going to be a very unproductive day for anything other than unboxing and listening to music.

  11. Howie says:

    I have the Black Sabbath black and purple boxset which came out a few years ago which also included Live At Last and a 7″. Apart from the tat and coloured vinyl, are these the same pressings?

  12. Les London says:

    Anyone thinking of purchasing the Status Quo 2CD set Live at the N.E.C. bewarned track 3 Roadhouse blues on disc 2 has 1min 20 seconds of total silence on it. Anyone know if it’s going to get repressed.

  13. Randy Metro says:

    Hopefully that weird circus mirror photo has been corrected on the actual Carly Simon release.

  14. O(+> Peter B says:

    I see on the JPC website that Beck’s Mutations vinyl has 2 extra tracks: Diamond Bollocks and Runners Dial Zero. I have the vinyl from when it came out and these 2 tracks featured on a 7″.

  15. Randy Metro says:

    I hate to belabor on the Carly Simon Deluxe. I pulled out my CD from when it was first released and the photo on my CD is not the freakish thing that may show up on the Deluxe.

    Something really interesting I only noticed now after 30 years. The track listing on the CD back cover & booklet is not the same as what the CD actually plays. The correct order is printed on the CD itself (tracks 5 & 6 are switched). Even more interesting is the new deluxe lists the incorrect song order, as does Amazon. Or will they change the order on the new CD’s?

  16. Aaron says:

    Thanks everyone for the feedback on Amazon international packaging. I’m still hesitating but leaning towards doing it since it’s not available at US anyways.

  17. Chris Squires says:

    Just had a delayed notification on the Abba singles box from Amazon. Are any other retailers saying this? It’s only until the 3rd November but it’s a worrying slippery slops if it keeps moving back…
