Happy New Year!

Just a brief note to wish everyone a very Happy New Year!

Thanks so much for your company in 2017; I’ve really enjoyed bringing you news, reviews, interviews and videos on all the latest reissues and box sets. I especially value the interaction – via blog comments, or social media – with SDE readers, who I consider to be some of the most passionate and knowledgeable music fans out there and a very friendly bunch! (sadly not the norm online). So thanks again – this blog really wouldn’t be the same without you.

I’m very excited about the next 12 months and hope to bring you lots of improvements to make your SDE experience even better. I’m working on the plan right now, but feel free to suggest ideas or items on you ‘wish list’ in the comments below. I know many of you would like to see the ability to edit comments for example, and have the option to ‘skip down’ to the very latest comments without having to scroll down (especially important on a mobile/cell phone).

The goal for 2018 is to introduce more functionality and interactivity – give SDE readers a way to leave feedback beyond just leaving comments. For example, one simple idea is three buttons below each product news item: “Do you intend to buy this reissue?’  YES. NO. MAYBE.  When you click on the appropriate button, you’d see the percentages and can gauge instantly whether people share your own view or not.

For now, do have a great new year. Go safe and I wish you a prosperous and healthy 2018.

    Paul, thank you for the proposed improvements to SDE. You may want to consider also building a consumer PHP, AJAX or other rating script on your website (similar to Amazon’s 1-5 star confirmed buyer’s rating), this would be helpful to those wanting to quickly determine the quality of a music product they are considering for purchase. Having worked many years as a marketing director for start-up companies, I must say I am impressed with the model you have created for this website. The information provided here is well organized, easy to navigate, and has real value. Most importantly, the unadulterated opinion, thoughts and feelings from consumers of physical music product should be of strong interest to record executives and recording artists looking for the best financial return (ROI) for their published music. I believe in due time, if it hasn’t occurred already, SDE will be an essential source of information to anyone in the music business, as well as become an ever increasingly popular news service for music lovers around the world.

    Happy New Year to you too, Paul!
    Can you do the 2018 preview so we could see what new releases and reissues are expecting us during the year?

  3. Andy P says:

    Belated ‘Happy New Year’ to Paul and everyone who contributes their news and thoughts to this informative, entertaining (and often expensive!) blog. Here’s to another year of SDEs and deals!

  4. Renato says:

    Thank you, Paul! A very happy 2018 to you!

  5. Colin Muller says:

    Happy new year Paul !
    And thank you thank you thank you for this blog and all the efforts you put in it. Your posts & comments are always valuable, even for the artists I don’t especially like or those I don’t even know (yet).
    All the best !

  6. Julian H says:

    I’m a bit late, but Happy New Year Paul!

  7. Steve says:

    Happy New Year to SDE and all its readers everywhere!

    My suggestion is to not go full forum mode, but enhance the comments section to allow threaded conversation. So essentially each blog post would start a new thread. That would allow readers to contribute more and enrich the site.

  8. Robert says:


    I’ve really enjoyed reading the news, reviews, interviews and videos on the reissues and box sets in 2017. And I want to thank you for all the work that you have done, to make this blog the most interesting music site.

    I wish you and everyone here a Happy New Year !

  9. Richard Cosgrove says:

    Happy New Year, and keep up the great work!

    This is one of the few sites that I know will have intelligent content AND intelligent comment.

  10. Thilo says:

    The Freddie Mercury “Messenger of the Gods” Vinyl Box Set is offered by JPC in Germany for just € 61,99. Probably someone of you Vinyl listendes care…

  11. Isauro says:

    To all SDE readers, and specially for Paul: Happy New Year!!! So much joy and work on sites like this only make me feel grateful, I really appreciate it. Paul, this is the way a music box set news site should be: just ahead of everything, influencing labels decisions making about their next and past releases, active community and best of all, using internet technologies and social networks to impulse physical releases in this time which is THE challenge! IMHO it’s been acomplished!

    Thanks again Paul, for what is done and for what is coming =)

  12. Steven says:

    Hi Paul

    Happy New Year to you and everyone.

    I always read your posts then scroll through the comments. I would rather like a ‘like’ button (though definitely not a ‘don’t like’ button) for the comments. Some comments I read with greater personal interest than others, such as Trash’s above, and often feel I’d like to indicate my agreement with a thumbs up. Other readers who don’t comment, maybe more into this as well.

    It would also be quite nice if you could choose to receive an alert if someone responds to a comment that you’ve made.

    Anyway, just my thoughts in case you agree with any. Thanks for all the 2017 posts.

  13. Marcelo Gobello says:

    ah…I live in Argentina

  14. Marcelo Gobello says:

    Thanks thanks thanks Paul!
    I check your site three times per day minimum!
    You are family now!!!
    Thanks again!

  15. Meadowmeal says:

    Happy new year Paul, and a warm dankjewel from the Netherlands for the effort you put in this website that I love!

  16. Ryk says:


    Happy New Year to you and yours. Great site. Love the “deals” emails and the price widget.

    I like your idea of “voting” and also the option of choosing “why” as suggested by Runicen.

    If possible, I would also like to see
    a) a option to “subscribe” to a page to get alerts when there are new posts – I recently went back to see if there were more posts about the Visage box set that came out over a year ago (and only remembered to do so because I’d bookmarked the page at some point).
    b) an option to “add” to your list of “this week’s releases”. I know, and understand, that you like to only mention the artists you are interested in, and that readers often mention in their posts other artists who have new releases, but it would be nice/easier if new releases mentioned by readers could be highlighted/listed-at-the-top for easy reference.
    c) perhaps a way to go back and see new releases by month over the past year (with the ability for readers to contribute). I came across some stuff that had been released a few weeks before, but there was not anywhere to mention this to your other readers.

    My hope for 2018 – that there are many combined (vinyl/cd/blu-ray[5.1 mix & video]) SDE editions released – so much cheaper and easier than buying all the different formats (I love my OMD and Fleetwood Mac ones). I do agree that box sets need to remain just one format though. Also that many of my favourite 80s albums are released in a SDE format!!

  17. Aubrey says:

    Happy New Year from La La Land! Here’s to a great 2018!

  18. Tracy says:

    Happy New Year Paul.
    I hope to be following this great, informative and friendly site again all this year. Thanks.

  19. Daniel ( from Berlin ) says:

    wow i read all the Happy New Year comments now. what a great international community!!
    paul you bring music lover from all over the world together. thank you.
    Happy New Year to all user here from me – from berlin !!

  20. Alessandro says:

    Happy New Year Paul !!!
    Best wishes from Italy !!

  21. Jon says:

    Paul, best wishes to you and your family for 2018 – you must have a wonderfully understanding wife! And thanks again for all the work you put into the site. A skip-to-the-latest comment button would be great. Also a suggestion box for new projects – if the record companies could be induced to read it. My #1 candidate is Hounds of Love by Kate Bush. And Happy New Year to all my fellow SDE readers wherever you are!

  22. Mikey-D says:

    Happy New Year to you Paul. Thanks so much for all the work you do on the website. You cost me a ton of money in 2017 and I thank you for that! Best of luck in 2018!

  23. Jeff D says:

    Thanks Paul for everything you do for us music junkies out there…keep it going and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

  24. Nicholas Dawson says:

    Like others I find superdeluxe a great site, but it costs me a hell of a lot, just ordered the Ian Dury set, would have done the Carpenters as well but for the US prime, but then again I know at some time this year will be available on at a good price.

  25. Trash says:

    Happy NewYear to you Paul and to all the other readers of the wonderful SDE site.
    I love the button idea as it is always interesting to read how others rate releases and reissues.

    As an aside, my personal wish list (music-wise) for 2018 would include:
    – XTC’s English Settlement to get the Andy Partridge/Steve Wilson SDE treatment
    – An album from TC&I (Colin Moulding of XTC’s new music project)
    – The Seeds of Love SDE to finally get released
    – An SDE of TFF Elemental album (though two SDEs from TFF in one year would be definitely too much to ask for)
    – And SDE of Blackstar
    – Zeke Manyika’s Call and Response album to finally see a release on CD (a bit obscure i know but there are some wonderful bonus tracks available and given some of the other things that get reissued it’s not beyond the realms of possibility… maybe…)
    – Remasters of Visage’s first two albums
    – Remaster of Eurythmics 1984 ‘soundtrack’ album
    – A new album from David Sylvian (particularly if its a return to his more traditional songs)

    That’s probably enough to be getting on with…

  26. Bob M says:

    Happy New Year to You, Paul, and all of the other devotees!
    Having this site available to us Canadians is particularly useful, as I often feel we are the “last to know” when it comes to new product, and generally speaking how poor our physical retail has become.
    I like the button idea too; I know this would probably be a real nest of worms, but one thing I would enjoy is a better/worse button on the audio quality of a reissue. I think a lot of people already have at least the Red Book issue of the new, super deluxe on tap. Everyone has their own sound taste, but obviously if a whack of listeners are disappointed, it would be helpful (see the Heroes/Bowie box issue).

  27. Barry says:

    Happy new year Paul. Love this site – first thing I read every morning!

  28. Mark Rutherford says:

    Happy New Year to all!

    How about a place on the new site for readers to suggest albums that are overdue for reissue?
    24 Years of Hunger and Swoon spring to mind..

    • Klaus says:

      I would really love SDEs of every record that Prefab Sprout ever has released AND has not released AND will release AND will not release but as you might already imagine i think that it is sadly highly unlikely that Paddy McAloon will open the vaults for it.

  29. Stephen says:

    Happy New Year to you Paul and all the SDE community. The info you bring, and the debate it generates, is an important part of my music appreciation these days. And a key element towards the emptying of my bank balance!! :-)

  30. LeBaron says:

    Long Live SDE !!
    Happy new musical year !

  31. Caroline says:

    All the best to you Paul – I read this site all the time and I wish you every success in 2018 x

  32. Phil Davies says:

    Happy New Year to you Paul – your blog in indispensable, keep up the good work (I especially like the un-boxing clips). Philip

  33. Adam Shaw says:

    Hope you and yours have a great New Year .
    Thank you for all your hard work this last year , always entertaining and informative.

  34. Paul Wren says:

    Information is the key to understanding the complicated box sets/vinyl reissue and new releases marketplace these days and SDE fulfils this need whilst highlighting best price deals – what more could any music head ask for?

  35. Mike the Fish says:

    Happy new year, Paul. Thanks for this blog: I love it, and I really enjoy your interviews too.

  36. Will W says:

    The only blog I regularly read. Great work Paul, Happy New Year

  37. Jan V says:

    Happy New Year to you and your family too, Paul!

  38. PaulM says:

    Thanks for the many, and costly deal alerts. I have spent a lot of dosh this year thanks to you. SDE is invaluable for both information on new releases, and the aforementioned alerts. I have recommended SDE to a lot of my music loving friends which is the highest praise I can give you.
    However the biggest thrill was selling you something on Amazon this year!!

    Thanks for all your hard work, and Happy new year.

  39. fredpostman says:

    Happy New Year and thanks;i look forward to all your posts.As you seem to get answers Paul,can you find out please why no one who brought Bowie’s ‘ANCIANT’ box set,has to date neither received an email from Parlaphone acknowledging that a replacement ‘Heroes’ would be sent ,and,or received the disc.

    • Klaus says:

      I remember reading somewhere here that one reader posted he/she received a corrected vinyl copy of “Heroes”. So CDs might be on their way too.
      Which reminds me that i still have to claim my copy :-)
      Also a Happy New Year to everyone here in the community.

  40. Ralf says:

    Thank you Paul for the great work.
    Visiting SDE several times a day is something i thoroughly enjoyed in the past. I’m looking forward to much more of that in 18.
    Happy New Year to you and to everyone reading this

  41. Tryone says:

    I wish everyone a new year.

  42. Jan Spring in ,t Veld says:

    Happy and healthy 2018 Paul for you and your family with lots of releases ( not to expencive like the McCartney or Roxy Music ) keep up this beautiful site. Greets from the Netherlands

  43. Alfonso says:

    Happy New year Paul!

  44. Ben Williams says:

    Happy new year, thanks for such a great site!

  45. Sami says:

    Happy New Year to you Paul!
    And thanks for this wonderful page.

  46. Alan says:

    Happy New Year to you and your family Paul, and to everyone else here on this excellent site.

    My main wish for the site is that somewhere is established as a central reference point where contributors can post the latest deals that they come across, be they general 4 for £18-type offers or specific album deals. At present there’s nowhere specific to go to keep up to date other than through the latest post by Paul, which of course then becomes old news as it’s superceded.

    I also perceive that the site is rather biased towards ’80’s pop and “Rrrooooock”! So I’d like to see more about alternative rock/new wave reissues. As a small example, Moonlandingz have announced a new 2CD set of their rather good debut (and possibly only) album which will come out later this year – no mention of that here. I know it’s impossible for Paul to comment on everything, so maybe this is just my problem.

  47. tom says:

    The only NEW physical music I bought in 2017 was the Brilliant Waiting on a Song by Dan Auerbach. I’ve never been that bothered about his band the Black Keys but this cd is a throwback to when every track was killer and no filler. Great George Harrison/Dave Edmunds feel to some tunes. Not the most original lp; it could have been made in the 70s. but just great pop music.

  48. Alastair says:

    Happy New Year to you and yours, Paul. Lang may yer lum reek!

  49. Gary says:

    Happy New Year to you too Paul. I’ve loved watching/reading this site go from strength to strength over the years. I, like most others I suspect, check in tens of times per day and can’t see any reason for that to change during 2018.

  50. Christopher Old says:

    Happy New Year to you and your family Paul.
    Thanks so much for all of your hard work and expertise on this site.
    You give us so much to look forward to, read and invest as collectors.
    I appreciate all of your efforts.

  51. Zongadude says:

    Thank you Paul for your excellent website ! :)
    I also enjoyed very special things like the “Flowers in the dirt Producers” booklet you printed, or the t-shirt, which I happen to wear a lot of times.
    I don’t think SDE should be going more into that area, but perhaps having 2 or 3 special treats per year (like you did) is a nice thing.
    Anyway, all the best for 2018 !

  52. Chris says:

    Happy New Year Paul and all SDE readers ! I love this site :0)

  53. peter chrisp says:

    Thanks Paul your are a legend!!! Here’s hoping, it’s the 50th anniversary of The White Album & i think it’s next on the list this year, Hendrix Electric Ladyland, Iron Butterfly In-A Gadda-Da-Vida, Beggars Banquet, Wheels Of Fire, & The Band Music From Big Pink, have a good 2018!

  54. Robert says:

    Such a great site. Cheers and Happy New Year Paul!

  55. don cooper says:

    Happy New Year Paul, Juan and Orl!

  56. John says:

    Happy new year and many thanks for the great site. I particularly like the interviews and longer articles – and the unboxing videos are done superbly well. Thanks again and all the best for 2018.

  57. Schu says:

    Thankfully, as the new year dawns I’m finally out of -20 degree weather and now into 20 degrees. Thanks Paul for all you do in keeping us up-to-date on whats coming out on the SDE front. Happy New Year!

    New Years resolutions for SDE releases:
    -SDE sets will be non-mixed formats
    -SDE sets in CD format will be in provided in space saving, small, shelf-size boxes
    -SDE sets will contain all originally available b-sides, mixes, non-album tracks, etc. (contact SDE readers if record company needs help)
    -SDE Blu-Ray discs will be made available separately
    -SDE pricing will be reasonable for the content provided (e.g., King Crimson Yeah!, Roxy Music Boo!)
    -When record companies make mistakes with an SDE set they will admit it, and make the necessary amends
    -SDE sets will be released in a timely manner (i.e., the SDE will be released once the 5.1 mix and other material is complete and has been sitting on the shelf for over a year!)

  58. ghostof82 says:

    Happy New Year everybody!

  59. Prithviraj Subramaniam says:

    Happy New Year, Paul. Best wishes for 2018. Thank you very much for the effort you have put in so far to provide us with all the fantastic information on the music releases, not forgetting to mention the timely alerts that you provide whenever there is a great price reductions. I think most of my music purchases in 2017 have either been based on the recommendations by yourself or the other people in this blog. The final purchase for 2017 was of course the David Bowie set ‘A New Career In A New Town’.I am looking forward to an even greater SDE in 2018.

  60. PChris says:

    Happy New Year to you Paul, thanks for all the info/updates etc, helps me and a lot of other music lovers a lot.

  61. François says:

    May this year be the most enjoyable of all that readers of this website have ever lived, music wise. May you Paul live long and prosper.. For the joy and benefit of us all….

    As for why your “Scream” vinyl does not glow in the dark… I suggest you try exposing it to bright light for at least 30mn long before you switch off the light… Should do the trick

  62. Tom M Hans says:

    Happy new year Paul and all the people reading and contributing to this splendid website. Since my wife will probably have me declared insane if I order another SDE “that I will probably never listen to” I am happy to see that I am not alone out there. Thanks to this page I completely fell in love with Porcupine Tree and Steven Wilson. Hard to believe that I never heard of XTC either and I started my journey with Abba live in Munich when I was 11 in 1979. So much to listen to, so little time…
    Peace and health and a non brickwalled 2018.
    Tom :-)
    Please get us The Seeds Of Love SDE released. The Hurting and Big Chair feel incomplete without it.

  63. Brian says:

    Best wishes for a happy and healthy 2018 to Paul, his family and all the SDE readers. As physical products become increasingly marginalised I’m grateful to this site and its likeminded readers for making this a vibrant and valuable community

    Here’s hoping for another exciting year and perhaps a pay rise to help fund all the great deals that Paul keeps finding for us !!

  64. Matt Piper says:

    Many thanks Paul for all your effort, knowledge and enthusiasm which is always very much appreciated. I’m a hi res fan (SACD, DVD audio etc.) and check in with you every day with fingers crossed that there will be something reissued, remastered or remixed that I can order! All the best. Matt

  65. Kenneth Tilley says:

    Happy new year Paul and everyone at this page, here’s to a good 2018.

  66. Ern says:

    Happy New Year Paul to you and your family. It was great to bump into you at the RAH and your lovely mum.

    Keep up the great work you do in updating us music nuts with those wonderful, informative news releases, reissues and price deal alerts.

  67. Bryan Barker says:

    Happy New Year Paul and your family! And to everyone who frequents this fantastic site! It’s one of the few places I make sure to visit multiple times a day for all of the news, deals and discussion it provides. Because of Paul and the rest of you I have found much great music to enjoy. Let’s hope 2018 is a better year for everyone!!!

  68. Denis Woods says:

    Happy new year Paul. Keep up the good work.

  69. Mark says:

    Check out this site a couple of times every day. Happy New Year Paul!

  70. Ausmonty says:

    Happy New Year Paul & family, from the land down under. Not sure how many other Aussies visit your web site, but I personally find it very informative and probably spend too much money on music because of it. That said, keep up the good work. You’re one of a kind and I hope you keep doing what you’re doing for many, many years to come.

  71. Runicen says:

    Happy New Year, Paul – thanks for all you do (even if my bank account is a bit resentful).

    With regard to site interactivity, the buttons are interesting, but you may need more gradation there. An, “I’m not interested, because this reissue doesn’t offer much/costs too much/etc.,” or an “only if the price drops” set of options might be one example worth exploring.

    Curious to see what you’ll be rolling out and I’ll be “tuning in” as always.

  72. Steen Pihl says:

    #Superdeluxetoo & a big thank you for bringing all this great info!

  73. Jürgen says:

    Hi Paul,
    all the best for you, happy new year 2018.
    Best ever music site, I got so many great stuff, thanks a lot for your big effort.
    SDE forever


  74. Neil McL says:

    All the best Paul to you and your family. Thanks for all the savings you have made for me

  75. Kai Karkkainen says:

    I would also like to wish you Paul, your family and all the SDE readers a very happy New Year! I can honestly say that your site is probably the only one I read on a daily basis. Thank you so much for all your work this year, also looking forward to 2018.

  76. Lee says:

    Thanks Paul! Best wishes for 2018!
    Everyday I’m looking forward to read new things, bargains on your site.
    Keep up the good work and wishing you all the best.

    Happy New Year, Paul! After all this reading, I consider you a friend and I thank you so much for all your efforts. Highly appreciate it. Thank you and best of luck to you in 2018.
    My wishes: Tears for fears “Seeds of love” box set, and an extremely good U2 tour.
    Take care friends of music!

    SDE is my go to site every single day. Thank you and a Happy New Year to you Paul

    • v16trola says:

      Agreed, I visit SDE almost every day – the reviews and information given is fascinating, even if it’s not an artist that i am particularly interested in. Thank you and keep up the excellent work.

  81. Vicente Olaso Sendra says:

    Always the best, Paul. Happy new year.

    Best Wishes…

  83. Alan says:

    Happy New Year Paul and family. Thanks for a brilliant site. I visit every day. Hope 2018 is a good one for you!

  84. Rooster says:

    And a “Happy New Reissue” to you too Paul. Thanks for the bargains and into. Andy & Scott.

  85. Brad B. says:

    Cheers to you Paul and all your efforts for this site, it’s a daily read for this US reader and music purchaser! Especially helpful to read your updates on the last Bowie CD boxset so I made sure to get the replacement disc offered by the label, along with reading about other purchases this year I didn’t even know I wanted!!
    To echo Daran’s comment above, my wish list item for your site would be a listing/forum/etc. for potential reissues that readers could vote on and be proposed to labels & content owners. One example I can give is getting Tim Curry’s catalog properly reissued, I know ‘Fearless’ is now done but his catalog could be finished fairly quickly, if fans only knew how or whom to influence?

  86. stephen says:

    Thanks again, Paul, for an amazing year on SDE.

    Yes, one thing that would be helpful is to view the latest comments since the last visit. Would it be possible to “subscribe” to posts somehow, like you can with threads on the SHF? That way it would be easier to follow conversations of interest and it would mean that threads from a few days or weeks ago could still be added to and those discussions continue with greater visibility.

    Finally, it would be great to get notifications when your own post is replied to.

    Keep up the good work and thanks again. I hope you have a great 2018.

  87. Kauwgompie says:

    Happy New Year to you and your family and to all the SDE fans out there!! Paul you are the hardest working guy in the music business. The info you give us is always super detailed, you always include the links when possible, always try to improve and have eyes for all the details. You clearly have a ton of pride in your work. And it shows. And again, you are working hard on making your site even better. Thank you for this. I SO enjoy it!!

  88. John Lim says:

    A very Happy New Year to you Paul and all the music lovers.

  89. Mike T says:

    Many Thanks for all the tips – you’ve cost me a fortune getting the specials I would have missed!! :-)

  90. Paul Soper says:

    Happy New Year Paul, and thanks for all your work. SDE is an essential visit for me every day and is easily one of my favourite sites.

  91. James Lee says:

    Happy New Year to you and your family Paul. As a lawyer and father of 6 I had decided to sue you for recklessly inducing me to spend far too much on box sets in 2017! However today I decided to give you a break based on your fine recommendation of the Gabrielle Papillon cd. What an excellent album. Thanks so much for the recommendation.

  92. Paul E. says:

    Happy New Year Mr. Sinclair! With regard to “more functionality…” it’s going to be hard to beat the March 2017 SDE Widget (aka the wallet drainer). Looking forward to visiting daily, hourly, or whatever interval is necessary to grab the best news/deals this wonderful blog constantly offers. Long live the compact disc :)

  93. Martin says:

    Hi Paul

    Happy New Year and it has been one where I have continued to treasure the site for the deals and the comments etc. Increased functionality would be great. I would be loathe to go down the route of forums as this IMHO tends to dilute the focus and the one overwhelming feature of this great site is the comments on the threads of the posts and not having to search for separate threads etc. Just a point of view.

    Here’s to 2018 and great deals and heads up
    Thanks again

  94. Gary Hunter says:

    All the best Paul, here’s to another amazing year of bargains :)

  95. Tony Orwell says:

    Happy New Year Paul and to all those who interact on this site.
    Agree that being able to Edit Comments is a great idea. Would also like some kind of notification whenever an article that one has commented on is added to via another reply. This would be especially great for older articles.

    All the best for 2018 Paul and thanks for creating the best forum on the t’internet in my opinion

  98. Duncan Day says:

    Yeah, happy new year and thanks for all the work you put into this. I love it !!! Looking forward to 2018

    Happy new year to the SuperDeluxe Edition team, readers, contributors and buyers of great physical music.

    I look forward to another year of being somewhat skint and spoilt for choice with what music to add to my beloved collection.

    Onwards and upwards, and here’s to many more new/old/re-issues/box sets/cds/vinyl etc. and hopefully a few more deal alerts to get excited about along the way as well.

    Happy new year to you Paul, your family and all the readers. I visit the site on a daily basis and always find something of interest. Keep up the great work.

    Happy new year Paul. Thank you for all your effort. You have a very difficult job, not only posting all the SDE news but having to deal with us, your not-always-greatful readers.
    All the best for the new year.
    From someone who does appreciate.

    Thank you and Happy New Year Paul and also to all of the SDE readers!

  105. Daran says:

    Here is to 2018! Let us hope it’s a good year in all ways.

    My wish list is just that! A feature that allows us to register interest in albums for SDE before they are even being worked on. Hopefully that may be info that you can push to the record co’s Paul to tempt them into considering giving the go ahead.

  106. juerie says:

    thanks for your work paul. a happy new year for you and your family and all the users of this site.

  107. AlexKx says:

    Happy New Year to you too!

  108. AlexKx says:

    Oh sh-it! Does your “Scream” vinyl not glow in the dark?! Do you know why? I’m not joking in asking either!

  109. Robert Laversuch says:

    Hi here is wishing you a good start into the New Year Thank you for a very informative webpage written up with lots of care and attention and love for the medium music and everything connected to it. The only slight irritant is that wanting to keep up with the latest releases cleans me out on a regular basis as there is just such a lot of exceptional stuff out there to partake of. Be well and keep it going always all ways.

  110. BritinDetroit says:

    Whether your choice is Bob or Bruce or Steven or…may 2018 give your players and turntables the musical moments that still send a chill up your spine and the overwhelming desire to get out to see a show, or put that one song on repeat.

    Happy New Year to the SDE Family, wherever you may be – turn it up

  111. Marc says:

    Happy New Year to you Paul – and Happy New Year to all the music lovers out there!

  112. Andrew M says:

    First of all and most importantly – Happy New Year to you and your family too Paul! The ethos of the site attracts friendly knowledgeable people (but sadly, some like me still sneak through) and that’s no accident. That’s down to you.

    As for a wish list – FORUMS! FORUMS! FORUMS! – Oh and did I say – forums? I know there are places out there already (large communities I wont mention) but they are way too big! Many times have I wanted to ask a question on here (recently – why does my Scream vinyl not glow in the dark) but not have the ability to do so. I can understand why you would not want to do this – but may be a team of trusted moderators would be able to help.

    Love the voting button idea too!

    Anyway – whatever you decide to do myself and many others will be here for the duration, which will hopefully be long and successful!

    Happy New Year!

      Most glow in dark stuff needs to absorb light first. Hold it up to the light for afew minutes then turn the lights out.
      If that doesn’t work then i guess it’s naff after all!

  113. Michael says:

    Honestly, I have never, ever enjoyed a music news website and blog as much as the one you created. The information provided by you (especially the videos) and honest commentary by the SDE bloggers have been most helpful in my deciding what, and what not to add to my music collection. The improvements you are considering for the website in 2018 should have great appeal for all your readers and bloggers. Thank you, Paul, and Happy New Year!

      Hi Happy new year to you paul and to all music lovers and thank you paul for such a lovely message it’s so heart warming

  114. Klaus says:

    Hi Paul,

    vice versa and: You’re very welcome (and you can take that literally).

    I’m too old to consider people i only know “online” as friends but if i did you’d be first in line.

    All the best for you and your loved ones in 2018. Keep up the great work AND don’t forgot to have fun without working sometimes (Yes, you can :-) )

    All the best from Germany
