  1. Auntie Sabrina says:

    What a great package Biff…

  2. Dr Magus says:

    Any album with a song called ‘piss off’ gets my vote!

  3. tom m hans says:

    ordered – though the best records will always be the EMI/CARRERE records. Up the irons!

  4. jimmy agates says:

    Ordered. Been hoping for this since the vinyl equivalent (Eagles And Dragons) was released a couple of years back. L ETA hope Demon get it right :-)

  5. Steve j says:

    Thanks for the heads up on this Paul
    Already have the vinyl edition but this was too good to miss as £10 off the normal pre release price plus the limited print
    Looks a brilliant package

  6. Regan Judson says:

    A 5.1 surround mix of Lionheart is on the bonus DVD?? I ordered this package even before noticing that detail!

  7. RikTheHib says:

    Essential!

    Saxon – Live to Rock!

    Ordered.

  8. Dean says:

    I’m not a fan of Saxon, so this is not for me – but I did want to drop a comment simply congratulating Edsel on putting together a great package at a reasonable price. They’re truly to be commended.

  9. Straker says:

    I wonder if there’s just 500? This was sold out, “currently unavailable” last week, shortly after I ordered it on the 8th and yet since Paul’s post it’s suddenly available in depth again.

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      I’m pretty sure the ‘currently unavailable’ was them getting the Amazon listing sorted.

      • Straker says:

        As I say, the signed 500 edition was available to buy as normal when I saw the listing early June. Couple of days after that the quantity decreased and ran out at which point it went to “currently unavailable” in the same way the Blancmange set did which would seem to indicate all 500 sold. This is the normal way these limited Amazon listings behave. If they come back in stock it’s usually only in ones or twos as people change their minds and cancel. Never seen one where the edition quantity is so low, come back in-stock in-depth like this as if it’s just gone on sale.

    • Dave says:

      Ha! Maybe they will add a zero or two at a later date !

  10. Paul W says:

    What agreat deal just put my order in

  11. Paul Wren says:

    It would be fun to see this as a vinyl package!
