    I grabbed the deal for the Chicago box. It seems the price has gone up/down a euro or so recently so I cannot tell how good the price is, but the box may go OOP and those copies will be much more expensive than this deal. That matters more than the price dropping 20 euros on a 30-minute deal that I’d miss anyway.

    Does anyone still can get the Bowie Boxset via ? When I click on the link it’s 210€

    For those interested in the Bowie “Who Can I Be Now?” LP box, Amazon Canada currently have it priced at $200 CDN which is about $150 USD! (or $63 cheaper than Amazon US.) Only caveat is that when I tried to purchase it, they said they cannot ship this particular item internationally. Argh! Foiled again! Any ideas????

    That Dylan boxset for £71 (inc. shipping) is a steal!! About £1.90 a disc – brilliant. Thanks Paul!

    You can also have the Ray Charles Atlantic Studio Album in Mono box for cheap:

    Wow – nice work.
    Chicago 5.1 for me, has to be an better experience than the disappointing vinyls Ive spent a small fortune on. I may even have had enough of this vinyl rubbish. Its the early pressings Im buying from now on.. .

    If Dylan has pressed the last 2 new releases with 16 / 44.1 I cant be bothered with vinyl anymore than the engineers are. Just saying.

    Thanks for the super heads up – Im torn between.. are you aware its Christmas this month – and my son has just had his birthday! hahahaa heeellppp!

      Happy Birthday to your son Tyrone, cherish those times.

      About vinyl, I have bought quite a lot of NEW vinyl in the last 10 years, recently The Who `Live At Leeds`, The Kinks `Mono Box`, Greatful Dead reissues, Pink Floyd and I`ve hardly had an issue with new vinyl. Yes The Beatles `In Stereo` box was a pain in the arse but I swopped each album individually with the retailer until I had a pristine set of LPs (not `vinyls`). On The Beatles, `The Mono Box` was how a vinyl box set should be.

      The thing to remember is to always buy LPs from retailers who will exchange inferior copies without a quibble.

    How do you change the Amazon page to translate to English (excuse my ignorance)?

  11. Charles Hodgson says:

    Be good to hear Amazon UK’s excuse for the lack of decent deals recently. Oh, I know: “Brexit”.
    Don’t buy that myself.
    But it’s going to be blamed for everytbing from now on.
    If a Dylan Box Set can be priced at £66 in Italy, why not here? It’s the same product after all.

    • David M says:

      Maybe wages are higher in the Uk, maybe storage facilities are more expensive? All sorts of reasons

    • John Moore says:

      totally agree- very frustrating this new price- I paid top whack being informed they were going to be difficult to get!!

  12. Danny Gromfin says:

    Does anyone on the SDE list have experience shipping from Italy to the US? I wonder if the savings from the price of the Bowie vinyl box would vanish due to the shipping cost.

  13. Jochen Mosthaf says:

    Italy is broke. That’s why. So sad. At the same time: Grab it while you can.

  14. CLIFF says:
