Very much looking forward to this a-ha acoustic album. So many formats, but the ‘fanbox’ is really the one to go for, but you should go direct to Amazon Germany for the best price on that particular format. Read more

    Well said Michael. Thanks Paul for a great website that is always worth a daily visit. But for you it is clearly a labour of love – and it is greatly appreciated. Many Thanks

  3. Jenny says:

    You forgot P!nk’s first 3 albums on vinyl released this Friday too.

  4. vikerii says:

    I just received an email from Amazon stating the Whitesnake set is getting pushed back until late October.

  5. Jurgen says:

    Hey Paul, are you doing this alone or do you have a few helping hands?

  6. Mr John Collins says:

    There’s also what looks like a great Replacements live album out on Friday as well.

    • Paul E. says:

      @ Mr John Collins – it is a superb offering in the Mats official catalog. I’ve owned the bootleg for years and am still buying this knowing it’s origin is from better/the best sources. Here’s hoping the band open the vaults!

  7. Gisabun says:

    Do agree. Prefer SW’s Hand.Cannot.Erase over To The Bone easily.

    Also out are limited editions of a 4 track vinyl and CD of Living In Fear from Marillion which features a “radical” mix of Living In Fear, one part of The Leavers live and 2 tracks from forthcoming retail reissues of Marillion’s band label issues.

    [Replace .co.uk with your territory’s domain suffix (i.e. .com, .ca, .de, etc.] Canadian and US and maybe others delayed until the 13th.

  8. Wayne Klein says:

    Are we sure Paul that the Elvis and Burt SACD will be out? Music Direct which usually has this listed and ready to ship before Amazon.com, has it as TBD still.

  9. Neil says:

    I find it quite bizarre that the so called ‘Mid-price’ reissue of Hand.Cannot.Erase. is actually more expensive than the original release.

  10. Neil says:

    I added that Summer Solstice [CD + Blu Ray] yesterday to my basket on Amazon and it was £24. Today i went to check out and it has jumped to £29.94. I’m sorry but they can shove it where the sun doesn’t shine.

  11. Ken Evans says:

    Re: Elvis and Burt – I ordered this on October 3rd (AMZ US) at which time the release date was Oct 6 — now the release date is Oct 13 (already in the past) but it has not shipped and the main entry for the item says “temporarily unavailable”

  12. Ken Evans says:

    Now the date’s changed to this coming friday.
