    Bought a sealed copy today for € 10,00 at a Dutch Record Fair.

  2. Tom M Hans says:

    Mine was delivered a few days back in the US. Listened to the first disc so far…. BRICKWALLED to death. Atrocious. Anyone else unhappy?

  3. Bart says:

    Well i have only one Tpau CD. Maybe its time to buy this anthology

  4. mike says:

    I think defending Amazon is the undefensible personally…

  5. Neil says:

    I bought that T’pau and even though it was sealed when i received it two of the discs had big scratches on them. Regarding HMV i would rather use them over Amazon but they are seriously bad for not having preorders compared to Amazon and also lately i have noticed their delivery times have got worse where before i was getting new releases on their release date on a Friday in the post now they are not appearing till the Monday or the Tuesday the following week.

  6. John Archbell says:

    Fantastic bargain! Ordered

  7. Paul English says:

    Thanks Paul – I appreciate the heads-up. Ordered to my Parcel Motel account (Northern Ireland address) so that circumvents the no overseas shipping.

  8. Eric says:

    Can’t be sent to France,shame…
    Lucky uk people

  9. Francis says:

    Great – it drops in price after I have already bought it pre-order. AGH!

  10. Mike the Fish says:

    That’s a bit disingenuous to put down HMV when Amazon’s own direct price is the same.

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      No it isn’t. The price Amazon are selling it for (direct) is irrelevant – what is pertinent is *this deal* from an Amazon third party seller (as I clearly point out). HMV have it for £40 this deal is for £22.

      • Mike the Fish says:

        You could have said it was double the Amazon direct price. Please forgive me if I’m wrong, I just get a bit cynical as I suspect you’re on associate status with Amazon, and we so rarely see notification of deals from HMV, who as far as I’m aware are not according hundreds of millions of pounds in tax. But I could be wrong.

        • Paul Sinclair says:

          But I’d rather compare apples with pears that apples with apples.

          I should point out that I spent quite a lot of time and money getting HMV on every SDE widget where they list the product in order to give SDE readers a choice.

          I have no idea about who pays what tax. I’m sure, “restructuring specialist Hilco” who own HMV, like all big corporations, try to pay as little tax as possible. At least Amazon are building a retail business and not running around the world pouncing on ailing companies for “restructuring and investment opportunities” to maximise their profit. Have you seen the Hilco website? “Our in-house capability also encompasses tax expertise” >

    “Sorry, this Seller doesn’t deliver to Australia”


    But Amazon occasionally price-match ‘3rd party’ sellers, so fingers crossed for this one!

  12. DJ Control says:

    Not shipping O/S unfortunately…

  13. Rob Iles says:

    £23 with postage – Now we are talking!
    Thanks Paul, I now have this ordered to add with last years Bridge of Spies!

    For those confused because Amazon showing as £39.99 …. if you click underneath on New from £22.73 (or on mobile Other New/Used – you will see this fantastic price!
