    Be prepared the Pepper remix on CD is limited and has compression applied. The mids are also a bit harsh. It’s a pity because the remix itself is very good–the mastering not so much. The vinyl is supposedly better. I understand Giles’ intention (to try and create a stereo version of the mono album in terms of impact) but I think that the mastering undermines some of his work here.

    The rest of the CDs sound pretty good but what doesn’t make sense is WHY they would also compress the Blu-ray 5.1 mix. That didn’t need to be done.

  2. Stuart says:

    Email last night confirming the Pepper box was now despatched and would be arriving (UK) today – it did. Lovely stuff!
    Despite being only sent out in its own original cardboard protection (i.e. not then placed in an Amazon box), it’s arrived fine. Just as well!

  3. Robert W says:

    Any suggestions (or webpage links) for how to email I’m caught in an automated loop that only seems to provide the usual return/replace options. I don’t want to return the whole package when only the slip cover is damaged.

    • Robert W says:

      update: my query on completing the return/replacement pro-forma has led to an email from It looks as if sending back the full set will be the only way of obtaining a new slip cover. They have also offered a full refund if I want to reject the item. Or Euro 15 to compensate for the damaged cover, if I prefer to keep it…

      • Paul Sinclair says:

        Situations like this are the one downside, of ordering from Europe. However apart from the hassle, you’ll still probably be quids in, compared to UK price…

    • Richard Starkey says:

      I suspect that in a few weeks or months, you’ll be able to find just the slip cover alone on eBay. Many people like to dissect packages like this and sell the individual parts. If the rest of your purchase is OK, I’d be hesitant to send it back. Just MHO

  4. Robert W says:

    My Sgt Pepper box delivered yesterday but there are three large scratch marks on the lenticular front image. If ever I did want to sell it, already it wouldn’t be classed as ‘mint’, although I’ve not opened the sealed contents of the box. I’d gladly accept a new cover, to avoid having to return the entire box, but I’m guessing this won’t be an option?

  5. Adey says:

    I ordered the sgt peppers box from
    Amazon tracking says delivered 31st may, yet i havenot recieved anything. No card thru door and no sign of it. I’m a bit worried now.
    Anyone else dealt with overseas amazon in the past??

    • Richard Starkey says:

      I ordered Beatles 1+ from Italy 2 months ago, and it came thru fine, albeit after a 3 week delivery time. Still waiting for “Songs from the Wood” from after almost 3 weeks. Disturbing reports about to say the least. 80 euros is not something to fool around with. They better treat us right b/c I would think this SDE blog holds a lot of sway in the CD marketplace and they ought to respect our buying power.

  6. Larry Davis says:

    Just got the Kraftwerk box (English version) yesterday at Newbury Comics based on a friend’s recommendation…it was cheap enough…on sale for $45.99 US, down from $59.99…I don’t know after reading feedback…it is simple-looking but colourful, and the sound is shiny and clean…HOWEVER (and this is my disappointment) the original album artwork is not included and the discs are quite short, around 27 minutes average per disc…found out NOT all the songs from the original albums were included…1 or 2 left off…maybe that was deliberate?? I wonder, was I ripped off?? I am not sure. Then I hear there is also a more interesting German version as well…was this purchase a mistake??

  7. John says:

    Thanks Paul for the alert about these deals last saturday.
    And thanks also to who processed my order and got my Sgt Pepper Deluxe box to me in, considering the available working hours over a weekend and a bank holiday, record time (sorry, no pun intended)
    (I ordered on saturday afternoon; got an email on monday asking me to update my payment method cos my credit card had expired; I registered a new card and sent payment; got an acknowledgement saying my item would be delivered on tuesday – ‘yeah, right, as if’ I thought; but blow me down wiv the proverbial feather, a courier driver knocked on my door tuesday afternoon with the box of delights)
    I can’t fault that customer service – it was a bog-standard order, I’m not an amazon prime member or anything like that.
    Hopefully will at some stage offer the Pink Floyd Early Years mega-box at a decent price….

  8. Chris Squires says:

    Bits and pieces started turning up today. The Flowers in the Dirt is really rather nice and it is such a stupid, stupid shame they couldn’t have been more sensible in pricing and content delivery – they would have sold buckets more and not pissed fans off.

    The Wall (2LP , 2016 remaster) at under £20 is rather a decent bargain and a spare Nick Cave Triple LP for under £15 is not to be sniffed at. If Spain, Italy and France do something similar I am going to have to pay Mr. Woolwich a visit to get a bigger bloody house! Then the solicitors for a divorce…. Brexit might save my marriage! It’s a rarely looked at positive :-)

  9. Federico says:

    I got my superdeluxe of Sgt Pepper’s today (thanks Paul for the deal) from Is it supposed to be shrinkwrapped or not, because my wasn’t

  10. Mark says:

    Thanks Paul!

  11. Dibyaroop Ghosh says:

    Mr Sinclair is doing a wonderful job…….i personally have taken his recommendations and deal alerts to pick up a few box sets in the past year……how much i would want to thank him would not be enough, ever…..he’s taking the pain to let us know the alerts and i think thats a job which is notably praiseworthy….Thank You again but i know its not enough :)

  12. peter wolf says:

    Once again kudos to Paul thanks for keeping us fans updated on a daily basis, i must admit when the details first arrived on SDE it’s one of the best sites i have ever visited 10/10,
    in relation to the anniversary edition of Sgt Peppers i think your sight went into meltdown i think we all agreed we could not get the details quick enough and within a minute or so the buzz on the net was pretty crazy. As i am getting a copy from France @ a very decent price and the good thing as i have been shopping online at Amazon either in the UK,Germany or Italy and i get an automatic discount which does help!! As i am in Australia a huge shock looks as though it will cost $260!!!! as opposed to $147 from France amazing stuff

  13. Tracy says:

    Do you know how limited The Beatles Super Deluxe Box Set is?
    Thanks in advance.

  14. Tom says:

    On the east coast of the US, Sgt. Pepper dropped from 8 AM to 3 PM EST; seven hours, also, if my price tracker is correct; dropped to 75 eu for about ten minutes?! at 11:40 AM?
    Don’t know if that’s a hiccup in the software but, talk about a Flash Sale!

    Paul, thank you for all your efforts.

  15. Tracey says:

    I picked up the Kraftwerk set. Fantastic price (even with shipping to the US)! Thanks Paul!

  16. bob says:

    its still comes to about $112 for Sgt Pepper when i clicked on link with shipping + vat to California. I think ill wait it out for a better price down the road, anyhow just got good deals on ebay Beatles Mono Box, and Lennon Signature Boxset to tide me over on the way. And im still enjoying the amazing deal i got here on Beatles Number 1 Blu-ray/Cd set for amazing $22 total. So patience will be rewarded. Now im Hunting deals on The Who Quadro /Tommy / My Generation Deluxe boxsets deals if i can

  17. Thank you Paul. First time that I was able to get in on one of your deals. I picked up the Jethro Tull Songs From The Wood for 21€, which with shipping to the US worked out to be $29 and change. Great compared to the US Prime price of $49.98. Nice!

  18. Dave Clarkson says:

    Cheers!!! Took advantage of the Peter Gabriel offers…..I was too late for The Beatles…..still happy :-)

  19. Rich says:

    Picked up a couple of Dire Straits at around 15 Euro each, plus a Queen LP for a bit less.

  20. R.Naud says:

    Flowers in the Dirt is at €122.99 which makes it £106.54, not £88… :(

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      What is the point of this comment? If the set is no longer €101 then the deal is obviously over.

      • Andrew Mogford says:

        Maybe to save other people clicking and being disappointed?

        I posted the same about Pepper earlier too just to save people clicking and to warn them.

        • Paul Sinclair says:

          It reads more like ‘you can’t do maths’ rather than, ‘here’s some useful information’. Perhaps not intended, but anyway…

  21. David M says:

    Beatles now 100 Euro, I waited too long

  22. daveid76 says:

    Danke Herr Sinclair

    That’s another £75 gone. I got the Peter Gabriels listed plus Scratch which was also very cheap. I’ve been waiting for ages to get these for under £15. I also got the Nick Cave 3LP set as it was superb value and I’m not even a fan!

    At this stage I’m thinking of launching a website called SDER, that’s Super Deluxe Edition Rehab. Maybe you could help..?

  23. Andrew M says:

    Ah. Pepper gone up so not a significant saving anymore. Nice spot for those who got it though.

  24. Andrew M says:

    Hmmmm. Amazon UK sent my pepper box unprotected and it arrived with a slightly ripped lenticular cover. Was toying whether to send it back or not but had pretty much decided it wasn’t worth the hassle.

    Now I’m wondering whether to send it back for being faulty and reorder through this deal. I’m worried they’ll think I’m swinging the lead though :(

    Tempted to go for pepper and flowers……


    • Eric says:

      @Andrew, for £110 your Pepper box should arrive in pristine condition. No way should you have to feel like putting up with a ripped cover when it’s a special item like this. Returns on Amazon are free (or else they refund you the postage) for damaged items, so get an undamaged one if nothing else!

  25. MikeW says:

    Also the German language Kraftwerk 3-D Der Katalog for the same price, although not in stock (any format) and cautiously stating ready in 1-2 months! Have ordered a copy anyway as if it drags on too long, or looks unlikely, I assume you can cancel without paying, up to the status preparing to despatch, as you can on

    English language version of 3-D The Catalogue 8cd set is currently in stock though.

  26. hamicle says:

    Was very tempted by the Kraftwerk box but picked uo the Roxy Music Complete 1972-82 CD set for £25 this afternoon so will dig into that instead.

  27. mike says:

    Bargain for the Kraftwerk german version, which is far more interesting!

  28. Rory says:

    There’s a £13 saving on the Beatles Love album. I’ve been tracking it for a while and it never drops from £30 so a great deal

  29. Ern says:

    Just cancelled my Peppers Amazon IT order with no problems and reordered through DE.
    Thank you very much Paul.

  30. Alan Jones says:

    Thanks Paul. Pepper Deluxe and vinyl ordered saving £57 even after including shipping to UK.

  31. Mark N. says:

    Thanks, Paul! I just made my first Amazon Germany order for the Sgt. Pepper SDE for $93.11 USD. Will the book and all the packaging be in English, or in German? I didn’t think about that until after purchasing. Hoping it’s in English. Thank you.

  32. Alastair says:

    Thanks Paul. Sgt Pepper box ordered. Iron will required not to order more.

  33. Webvan says:

    Thanks Paul, also canceled my Pepper (not sure why they still hadn’t shipped it, their loss!) and ordering from

    Flowers is still a bit expensive IMHO, will wait till it hits 80€…

    EDIT – please add an option to subscribe to comments ;-)

  34. Adey says:

    £78.92 for the peppers box. Just ordered and Very pleased! Still think the u2 box is overpriced though.

  35. Stuart says:

    Cheers Paul!

    Just cancelled my Italian pre-order for Pepper, apparently without issue.
    Re-ordered on DE for £78.92 all in to UK.

    Every little helps!

  36. Paul Wren says:

    Yep – Pepper double vinyl purchased earlier today at £25 including postage. It will be a long time before UK prices drop below this level, so the buy decision was an easy one. Great tip off as usual, Paul.

  37. Callage says:

    Thank you SDE, this is exactly why we love this site.
    (3-D The Catalogue bought)

  38. John H. says:

    Just ordered Pepper box, hope it arrives for my birthday June 1st (the real anniversary date!)…

    • John H. says:

      Pepper deluxe arrived Bank Holiday Monday. Are these items actually sent from Germany as the first depot on the tracking info was Swansea?

      • Ralph MacGillivray says:

        Have my doubts! Mine arrived from Dunfermline depot. Still if that’s what it takes to save money so be it.

  39. Paul H says:

    I was holding out for a price around £65 but can’t wait!
    Thanks Paul.

  40. Kauwgompie says:

    Thanks Paul, bought the Kraftwerk box. A no brainer at that price, great value. Was tempted to get the McCartney box too but I can’t pull the lever. It’s only 3cd’s and a lousy DVD for still more than a $100. And I don’t even like Paul McCartney. The only reason I want it is to complete your numbered booklet with interviews. I may buy it for $60 but I doubt it will ever get that low.

  41. patrick says:

    Just ordered Springsteen Live at Hammersmith e35, beatles 2Lp, Queen Greatest Hits Vol 1 and Bowie Legacy. Note to self, block SDE notifications!

  42. Leemer says:

    Thanks for the word on this. I managed to save nearly $30 off my previous Pepper orders.

  43. Auntie Sabrina says:

    Sorry, that should be “unless the items arrived later than expected or were damaged Amazon will charge you for the return” folks.

    Had a little drinks…

  44. Peter Stanton says:

    Like Dean T I have it on order at about 90 euros with Amazon Germany….r.

    Worried about the hassleof cancelling etc

  45. Auntie Sabrina says:

    Regarding ordering cheaper then returning higher priced items, if the items arrived later than expected or damaged, Amazon will charge you for returned items.

  46. Bender says:

    Considering free shipping to Poland – the deal is even more sweet. Order placed. Thanks, Paul!

  47. Ronald says:

    Of course Paul you are right, but thta was the price all along. So that’s my confusihion.

  48. Barry Grayshon says:

    I had a pre order of The Beatles box set with Amazon Italy at €101.47. Just tried to cancel, so I could reorder from Germany, but it’s preparing to ship now and will not allow me to do so! Argh! This is not the first time this has happened to me. I’m giving up on pre orders. Everything I buy goes down after it’s been released. It’s only been 24 hours.

  49. Paul Ward says:

    Thanks Paul. Just ordered Pepper and Kraftwerk CD. Your Kraftwerk link is for the German language version by the way but there is an english version available at the same price.

  50. Ronald says:

    Did anyone get a screenshot from the U2 set for € 75,00 it’s back up again and I was too late to get it. Thanks!!

  51. James says:

    Thanks Paul, newbie here on placing orders from not English Amazon sites is there any recommendations you can give on translation conversion (from iPhone) so I can safely place orders here ?

  52. Isaac McHelicopter says:

    Thanks Paul. I was in time to cancel my Sgt Pepper box from and save another £11 by ordering from £31 less than Brilliant!

  53. Ralph MacGillivray says:

    Hurrah! I’m going to Pepperland! Thanks Paul!

  54. Mario Boisvert says:

    Being located in Canada, are those deal worth it with shipping and customs to be cleared ?
    Just asking if someone from Canada already tried to take advantage of those deals and being satisfied with the saving they made.

    • David M says:

      It’s a lottery. I have had huge packages delivered with no duty and smaller ones that were caught. However if you choose a faster shipping method (just 2 Euro more) then amazon will reserve a sum for charges. I believe this will be refunded if it goes through without charges being applied.

  55. Martin says:

    Oh go on then Queen GH2 and Miles Davis Bitches Brew vinyl now skint :-)

  56. GavinH says:

    I cancelled my Amazon UK pre-order of Sgt. Pepper’s earlier this week and felt proud of myself. I didn’t need it, it was a lot to pay, I’d probably only play it a handful of times etc.
    Now I’ve crumbled and bought it from Germany, thanks a lot SDE!!

  57. Dean T says:

    Ok ..just reordered..looks like I’m not the only one who is getting there ordered canceld via the carrier.fingers crossed it all works out.

  58. Martin says:

    Great Paul grabbed Gabriel So, Nick Cave, Dylan and Pepper on vinyl the SDE will have to wait

  59. William_M says:

    Still think the U2 four disc set is vastly overpriced, in the £30 ballpark is more appropriate

  60. Thorsten says:

    Here are more deals:

    Boney M. – Diamonds (3CD, DVD, LP + T-Shirt) €16

    Abba – Gold (Vinyl) €16

    Queen – Greatest Hits (Vinyl) €17,50

  61. Ian Fry says:

    yep, cancelled my beatles super deluxe amazon order in the nick of time and am now getting from germany. u-beaut paul ‘n “cheers!”

  62. Dean T says:

    Ok just received a email from a looks like they are going to cancel the order with the carrier once its pick up ….I think ….but it will take some time to issue the refund…so do I reorder now or wait till I have been refunded…realy don’t want two boxes turning up…
    Turned into a bit of a drama….it’s my own fault…

  63. William says:

    Is shipping to the UK added regardless? Can’t get price of £32.00 for Kraftwerk. At £36.00 still better than UK (£50.00). Also am I better to pay in GBP or Euro? Can’t work it out (I am dim).

  64. Carl Homes says:

    I was going to sit and wait a while until all the fuss died down and see if prices dropped. That didn’t last long!. Purchased Pepper for myself and one as a nailed on perfect Christmas present for my dad. He was 18 when it originally came out and was a signature sound in our house while growing up.

    Thanks for this.
    It’s a shame i wont get the Autorip like i would if buying in the UK, but its a small price to pay for a great deal.

  65. Heinz says:

    Thanks Paul!

    17 items ordered.
    Gee, no drinks the next two months……..:-)

  66. HarryDeParry says:

    In fact: I changed my order again: only the box at incl. shipping was €104, I now got the box ánd the vinyl for €106 at! Jayyyy!

  67. Ciaran says:

    Thanks as always Paul.
    I have a couple of Pepper deluxe sets en route from France at a higher price (over EUR100). If I return them to does anyone know how much (roughly) the return postage would be from experience? Thanks.

  68. Ollie Carlisle says:

    I just spoke to someone from and they will tell the courier not to deliver the one l ordered yesterday, which was already preparing for despatch, so I’ve reordered at today’s price.

  69. Dean T says:

    Yup dice ..just spoke to Amazon and basically reorder and wait till first order turns up and then send back ….not sure who pays postage on that one and learn I suppose..
    I must learn to have more patience in this hobby..past time..

  70. Mooncusser says:

    Are discs in the Sgt Pepper Super Deluxe region encoded? Would be shipping the set to US.

  71. Roberto says:

    Porcupine Tree Fear Of A Blank Planet (Limited Blue Vinyl) EUR 19.59

  72. colin says:

    Great offers but MP3 RIPs are for German customers only and shipping is not free so only £10 cheaper (with no MP3) for the Sgt. Pepper Vinyl!

  73. Jon Shaw says:

    Singles soundtrack on vinyl 17.59 euros too!

  74. Mike says:

    I cancelled my German order. No hassles. In less than a minute I got an e-mail the cancellation was done, after which I could grab it for the lower price.

  75. HarryDeParry says:

    Just cancelled my Pepper order at (€104) and immediately re-ordered it at (€82). Thanks SDE!

    • Gareth Pugh says:

      I think Amazon Italy’s systems have got wise in the past hour as to what’s happening. I just tried cancelling mine and got an e-mail telling me it was too late to cancel as it’s preparing to ship. It’s been in that status for a few days, I notice! Hey ho. Still, have ordered the new Pepper double LP I’d been meaning to get (honest!) for a decent reduction, so, thanks Paul!

  76. Tony says:

    Have exercised great restraint and only ordered Pepper! Thanks for the alert.

  77. Graham Gardner says:

    Thanks so much Paul. I thought I would have to wait some months for Peppers 6 disc box to come down in price. Cheers you’ve made my day. Ordered.

  78. david says:

    Sgt Pepper in the bag. Thank you.

  79. Michael says:

    Thank you very much for the heads up! Was able to cancel my Amazon.It pre-order just in time and save £15!

  80. Joe says:

    No Amazon won’t refund the difference, I asked by email and just they replied no refund in different price

  81. Brendan Minchin says:

    Good stuff Paul. I picked up Sgt. Peppers and mirage. Also grabbed rumours and tango in the night super deluxe editions as they’re cheap too.

  82. Loka says:

    Good luck with that. I ordered the Rammstein 4LP set a few days ago (yet to arrive) and when it dropped price by 13 euros I contacted them about it. They said “Return the item and reorder to get the saving”.

    What is the point of that. To have 2 big packages flying across Europe for no reason at all when they could simply refund or credit the difference. They won’t budge on it.

  83. Mark S says:

    Sgt Pepper in the bag. Thanks!

  84. Seweryn Góral says:

    Also Iron Maiden Collectors Box with No prayer and Fear of the dark LPs included for 36euro

  85. Seweryn Góral says:

    Or talk to amazon stuff via chat they are great

  86. Dean T says:

    Thank you for your quick response Paul…will look into it…

  87. LeBaron says:

    Mr Sainclair, I hate you !!!

    (a wife’s reader)

  88. Dean T says:

    Ok I have the sgt peppers on order for about 90euros …it being prepared for shipping …will I get the lower price?… I have tried to cancel but it won’t let me….

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      No you won’t, because it’s not a pre-order. Take a screenshot and get them to refund you the difference afterwards.
