We Are Vinyl: Sony offer vinyl fans superb daily deals throughout July

Sony Legacy are offering vinyl fans great daily deals throughout July on classic rock/pop titles via their We Are Vinyl online store…

Every day this month a ‘deal of the day’ will present a vinyl album from artists such as Bruce Springsteen, ELO, Michael JacksonBob Dylan, Elvis Presley and Rage Against The Machine for a sale price of just £9.99!

These special deals will be available for 24 hours only. So for example, today’s deal is for Bruce Springsteen‘s classic 1975 album Born To Run. That will be available at the discounted price until midnight tonight (BST), when it will be superseded by the next great offer (tomorrow’s deal is the soundtrack to the 1987 film Dirty Dancing).

There’s 26 more deals to make the most of in July, and you can get a sneak preview of some of them, by heading over to the We Are Vinyl store right now.

As well as these daily deals, the We Are Vinyl store also offers new release vinyl, best sellers and even a selection of last year’s Record Store Day releases.

    Hmmm, I can see what they are trying to do, get people to go back every day. What is the situation with postage? Now, if I wanted 6 or 7 of these titles why would I go back 6 or 7 times and pay 6 or 7 sets of postage of typically £3.95. They can’t know whether you will be back for more so one would be billed at every sale. So if it’s £9.99 + postage every time it doesn’t seem like quite the deal….

    • Ben Williams says:

      I agree, seems good but if you go back 10 times, that’s £40 postage…

      Best to compare prices on Amazon, HMV, eBay, etc before buying.

      The Springsteen vinyl is a good buy, though it is currently £12.99 on HMV with free postage!

    What Chris says. ^^^

  3. Looks like they are jsut trying to shift dead stock. so much vinyl is in production many titles are simply unsellable. Things like the Dirty Dancing soundtrack you can find in any charity shop or record shops £1 bin !!

  4. Auntie Sabrina says:

    Postage is £4.

    Haven’t Sony recently announced they are opening a new pressing plant?

  5. Cory Eling says:

    The days of the ‘cut-out bin’ will soon be among us once again ;)

  6. Matthew says:

    none of them is hardly worth hanging your finger over the confirm payment button sorry but I’ll opt out !

  7. EW99 says:

    I’m sorry Paul but that little disclaimer under the article makes me quite uncomfortable.

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      Why’s that? Occasional paid content helps to pay the SDE rent and keeps this blog completely free for all. It’s not like the content is not relevant!!

    • RJS says:

      “disclaimer under the article makes me quite uncomfortable”

      Are you serious?!

    • joedick says:

      I’d be more uncomfortable if the disclaimer weren’t there.

  8. Martin says:

    If they were free postage that would be a sweet deal but at £4 a go no thanks

  9. EW99 says:

    Not a problem and I appreciate you have to make some money. Just eats into my impression of your impartiality.

  10. Sean says:

    Paul simply states the facts of the deal, not like he’s gone overboard and said it’s the deal of the century etc etc I found out about this deal 3 days ago, looked into it and decided it wasn’t worth it with the additional postage. Paul has put us onto some cracking deals so if don’t trust him don’t read the blog and don’t buy the products !

    • Graham says:

      I did a dummy order. The postage of one album to Australia was around £10. Total rip off. I’ll order from amazon. Thanks for letting us know about this Paul.

    • Kyodo_dööm says:

      Spot on, Sean. I have little personal interest in many of the 1980s reissues that the blog’s boss hog seems to prefer, but it is readily apparent he is a trustworthy soul and it is for that reason I like to stop by once in a while on the off chance he has highlighted something which does tickle my fancy. As another contributor posted, it would be far more disturbing if there wasn’t that little Sony Legacy disclaimer. Whiners & whingers begone. Please. Forever.

  11. Mark says:

    This is one of the most honest forums for music I visit!
    If any one bothered to check the offers, like I did, there is no post charges.
    What do people want from Paul and this site, any one can see the passion and and professional attitude he takes to any thing done on this site.
    I cant wait to open it up each time, though it keeps me poor!
    I hope everything is as it should be!

    • Mikael says:

      Free shipping to me in Denmark as wel, to bad nothing of interest.

      Don’t mind the sponsor at all as long as it is relevant to the SDE site.

    • El Nino says:

      Agree. And I don’t have a problem with the sponsor ship. This site is a daily visit for me and always worth it.

    • DavidTW says:

      Mark: Postage is £4 to UK addresses. I’ve just checked.

  12. Marty says:

    I didn’t even notice the disclaimer, I had to scroll back up and have a look. No problem for me.

  13. Truthsayer says:

    Crap offer, one a day, big deal!

  14. Klaus says:

    No need to get rude mate. Like it was pointed out already noone forces you to buy anything after reading here about it.
    For me this site is quite a time saviour and even if i looked at the websites covered here on a regular basis i fear that i still wouldn’t find all of the offers that might be of interest for me.
    On the downside like also pointed out by other members of this forum before it can become quite expensive to visit this site because of the great offers that are posted here.
    I have no problem whatsoever with Paul taking money from the record companies because in the end it’s still me who decides what i want to buy and what i want (make that can) to spend for it.
    End of defense speech ;-))

    Seems completely reasonable that Paul would run a piece like that, sponsored by Sony. It’s clear that is the case, and as someone else pointed out, it only states the facts. At the end of the day, he has to make the blog viable and it is a relevant offer which could be good for some of us, as some of the prices are very competitive… it certainly drew me to the classic first Santana album today… although ultimately the £4 postage makes it cheaper at £12.99 on Amazon. That’s the name of the game with these record company owned online stores… The Sound Of Vinyl consistently looks cheaper than Amazon at advertised prices, until you add postage and the whole equation generally changes. They even ran a “free postage” offer last weekend but only allowed it in one delivery per account. So I tried ordering some of the Elton John reissues, but unless I waited until October to receive everything, only one of them would be postage free!

    I managed to pick up the 4LP Springsteen Live at Hammersmith Odeon in my local record shop on Saturday – it had a WeAreVinyl download coupon inside. I assume the brand hadn’t launched on Record Store Day, so I guess they are reissuing RSD releases – I see they have a few releases from previous RSDs on the site.

    I thought the Springsteen 4LPwas limited release – copies were on the web for £100 after RSD (I paid £36), it seems not to be the case and some collectors will be annoyed.
