  1. Mr Tim says:

    many thanks indeed, on my list since release. Pulled the trigger on this for £ 43 and change. Good spot !

  2. Jools says:

    A big thank you, ordered as soon as I got your email. It arrived this afternoon, that’s cracking service. All the way from Scotland. Not Germany !! Hope it’s not in Scottish, but what a bargain.

  3. Bob Preston says:

    Thanks Paul.
    Ordered and on the way. Keep up the great work,
    From Bob and his slim wallet…..

  4. alberto says:

    Thanks a lot, Paul!

  5. Matt Charles says:


    Picked up Venus, Mars for crazy, crazy low ebay price,, was really impressed with the physical package,…

  6. PC says:

    Was waiting for a better price for this and here we are: ordered!

    Thanks Paul!

  7. Kevin Henry says:

    Ordered within minutes of your email alert arriving. Came to £43 inc postage. I really want it for the remix of the album. Even though it is cheaper than when it first came out it is still a lot of money for 3 CDs and a DVD. However, it is a great album (my favourite of his solo work) and brings back many memories of when I first bought it on vinyl in 1982 as a 20 year old.

    • David S says:

      The remix version you’re after is on the 2 cd version which is under £13 on HMV and Amazon. Based on what you say you didn’t have to spend £43, the remastered version is on the super deluxe.

      • Paul Sinclair says:

        This is true, although if you can get for a good price I’d always encourage people to get the ‘book’ versions. The books are the one truly outstanding aspect of the McCartney Archive Collection releases.

    Amazing four days after leaving the above message I walked into a Melbourne record store and found a copy (just one available only) so had to grab it immediately.
    Thanks Jorge for the Amazon tip, I see there are a few available around the globe, I just couldn’t be bothered trying to get an order to me this late to Xmas.
    But seriously there does to seem to a scarcity on Tug of War deluxe. Here in Melbourne Pipes of Peace was readily available everywhere but Tug of War is still a rarity, I don’t understand why ?

  9. Jorge says:

    Tug of War Deluxe Edition dropped to US $48.99 ( (about £33.5) at the time of writing this.

  10. scotty_G says:

    Does anyone know what is happening with the release of the Deluxe Tug Of War. It doesn’t appear in any record stores here in Melbourne, Australia. I did place an order through Amazon.IT a few months back but they are saying it is still unavailable and will keep me updated.
    I have Pipes Of Peace which I purchased locally here in Australia, and there are still plenty of Deluxe editions available, but Tug Of war is non-existent! Was there a hold up in the production of this?

  11. Paul says:

    ‘Standard’ 2-CD edition is just €11.99 at Paid €16 (just over £12) including delivery to UK as compared with £16.99 at

    I have an account and picked up all of my account details from the US site.

  12. Robert Fitzpatrick says:

    any reason to get the super deluxe pipes of peace? I can’t see any decent reason to go for the super deluxe over the deluxe

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      Technically, the book edition is the ‘deluxe’ but I guess it depends how much you like the album and what it means to you. Pipes and Tug of War mean a lot to me so I’m getting both books, which look amazing in the videos. I don’t think the DVDs amount to too much, to be honest, but I have a shelf full of previous ‘book’ editions so I’m not going to stop now :)

  13. Marc Hocker says:

    Paul didn’t lift his post from somewhere. Someone lifted it from here and put it on the Steve Hoffman Forum.

  14. Andrea says:

    As I said before, the Canadian price has always stayed around CDN $ 63-64, so I really don’t see where’s the “deal alert” here.
    And customers from Europe, keep in mind that import taxes can be up to even half of that price tag.

  15. PDS says:

    Unless you were first and they have lifted your post !

  16. PDS says:

    Paul…your posting seems to have been lifted in its entirety from another forum including typos. Surely you should credit that original poster ?

  17. Richard says:

    I’m in the UK and ordered the 2 McCartney books last year from for a very similar price. They were shipped by UPS (very quick delivery I might add) but I received a customs invoice a few days later for just over £27. So unless you’re very lucky you will still be looking at around £50 per set including postage for these.

    • Graeme says:

      Even then, with the two sets at £32 each, the shipping equivalent to £8 each, and a £3o customs charge it still works out at around £110 against the £145 it would cost here in the UK.

  18. fenwick says:

    A few weeks back Paul posted this box from Amazon Italy and referred to it as the signed limited edition run. I pre-ordered it and still haven’t been able to confirm that it was indeed different than this one. Can anyone confirm? Thanks.

  19. Florent says:

    Great deal. Bought the 2 deluxes for 161 CAD, and saved 80€ (France).
    Thanks for this alert. I don’t think there’ll be better.

  20. Jim says:

    Snapped up this great deal to keep my McCartney super deluxe box collection complete. Cost me $152 Australian delivered from Amazon Canada. Local store has it on their site at $460 in total so the saving is considerable.
    Will be a bad month for the credit card with my $700 Grateful Dead huge box about to ship. With our dollar falling rapidly the price goes up between ordering and shipping.

  21. Andrea says:

    I preordered it from about three weeks ago at CDN$ 63.73, and it’s always more or less stayed at the same price, so nothing new there.

    But really, if you (like me) are living in Europe, don’t get your expectations too high about this “bargain” since you’re likely to pay up to £15-€20 for import duties…

    So yes, I did place my order, but no, I wouldn’t call it a bargain.

  22. William Thornton says:

    Ordered.Just saved me $40! Thanks

  23. Graeme says:

    Will the DVD region code be an issue for UK buyers?

  24. Straker says:

    No wonder companies call the UK “Treasure Island” from being able to charge inflated prices.

  25. Svein says:

    This is way better than I would have gotten them for in Norway, even when adding VAT, postage and the usual stuff. (With luck, it will only be postage, but not counting on that!)

  26. luis armando says:

    Sold. Fantastic. Thank you once again Paul.

  27. James Pigg says:

    Ordered! £40 including shipping. I really wanted the original mix but not for £73 so this was too good a deal to pass on. Classic Mecca with George Martin at the controls – it’s a no brainer.
    Cheers for the heads up.

  28. Manuel says:

    I’m not ordering from Amazon Canada ever again. Import duties are always over exaggerated. When lucky I ended up paying the same as bought home :(

    • Grimble says:

      Yes, it’s a low price, but if you’re in the UK, once shipping is applied and then import duties I’d be surprised if it was any cheaper than getting the 2 for £90.

      • Graeme says:

        That would still be considerably cheaper than the UK price for both sets though, with both deluxe sets currently costing £145.98 in total.

    • Edward Bates says:

      Totally agree. I ordered Ram from Amazon Canada and with import duties etc. I saved less than a pound and had to wait nearly three weeks for it.

  29. Si says:

    Wow, great shout on both those titles! Cheers Paul.
