Dire Straits’ The Studio Albums 1978-1991 vinyl box set was just £70 when it first appeared on Amazon UK back at the end of September. Although it has gone up a little bit since then, it’s still fairly good value at £86. Buying from Amazon Germany will save you around £10 but you do have to factor in the shipping (normally very cheap). France matches the current UK price, and if you choose to pay up the Amazon US ‘import’ price, then you’re looking at a hefty £139 for this 8LP box set.

The 7CD+LP deluxe version of this Waterboys Fisherman’s Blues sessions set is out already but many fans have been waiting patiently for the cheaper 6CD clamshell version of Fisherman’s Box (finally released next week). The price for this has remained fairly consistent on Amazon UK at between £22 and £24. Those in the US should probably buy from Europe, because the price is almost twice as much on Amazon.com at the time of writing.

Ol’ Blue Eyes‘ Duets Super Deluxe was under £70 for a while in the UK but has risen to £83 in recent days. Amazon Germany’s €80 price equates to around £67, so for those in Europe, well worth picking this up from there. But what’s this? The US price (ignore the crazy import version) is only $62 or £38!! That’s a real bargain for the double vinyl and 2CD+DVD set.
