This Week’s Box Set and Reissue Deals

UK Black Sabbath / Vol 4 4CD super deluxe – £69 £95

Little bit of a strange one this… but Amazon in the UK currently have the Rhino 4CD super deluxe of the forthcoming Black Sabbath reissue for £69, which is a £25 saving on the UMC version which is £95. They are identical, save for the label design on the CDs (Warners are issuing this in the USA while BMG/Sanctuary are issuing it outside the US).

Simple Minds / Street Fighting Years 4CD box set

GERMANY Simple Minds / Street Fighting years 4CD box – €22 (£18.50)

Stunning price in Germany, for last year’s box set. Nothing extra to pay for UK fans, except £3 shipping.

UK Neil Young / Way Down in the Rust Bucket 4LP+2CD+DVD box set – £89

The super deluxe edition is finally available via Amazon UK and for a decent price.

Paul McCartney / Flaming Pie 5CD+2DVD deluxe edition / Archive Collection reissue

GERMANY Paul McCartney / Flaming Pie super deluxe – €147 €225

Great deal in Germany for the Flaming Pie 5CD+2DVD super deluxe, although there is the major proviso that the deal isn’t available to ship to the UK. It may be strictly limited to Germany, but worth having a look if you’re in Europe.

ITALY Richard &  Linda Thompson / Hard Luck Stories 8CD – £58 DEAL OVER

Bargain price for the newly available and much acclaimed 8CD package. UMC have apparently repressed this, so they will ship in a couple of weeks. £90 in the UK but only £58 with £4 shipping (to the UK) via Amazon Italy. Remember, nothing extra to pay for UK fans (EU sellers have to charge all fees at point of sale for ‘consignments under £135).

    The Prince Sign O The Times big vinyl box is only €218 on Amazon Germany. This box is sold out on Amazon USA & UK (for a normal price). Last chance to get it at an excellent price before you have to sell your car to be able to afford one.

  2. Beechlander says:

    The German/Italian Amazon deals are over (for now anyway). Was literally browsing/adding a couple of boxsets to my basket when the offers disappeared!

  3. Craig Deeley says:

    The Shakin Stevens Fire In The Blood huge box set is £64 delivered on

    Cheapest I’ve seen it.

  5. JurRie says:

    With the “promotion” SimonP2 talked about, you get the Elton John “Jewel” Box for 67€ on km which is the best proce I have seen, till today.

  6. SimonP2 says:

    For those inclined – Tom Jones Complete Decca Box is currently £37.12 including shipping to UK on (promotion automatically applied at checkout). It’s a massive 17CD set and just under £50 on Amazon UK

  7. SimonP2 says:

    Ok – I havent worked out the logic yet but there are quite a few good deals on box sets on Having successfully got a promotional discount on the Hard Luck box, i explored further. Discount seems to vary from title to title. For example, I just bought Ultraxox Vienna box. This attracted a further 7.9 euro discount on an already discounted price – this comes to only £39.52 including shipping etc to UK. Looking further

    • Andy says:

      Thanks SimonP2 for highlighting the Richard and Linda Thompson deal, I’ve opted to purchase. Looking forward to whatever else you’re able to find.

    • Marc Sutton says:

      Cracking bargains, I have bought them both myself. Thanks for the tip

  8. J says:

    Hey Paul Thanks a bunch for the heads up
    I just picked up the Thin Lizzy box on Amazon USA for $125.28. Such a deal. There were 11 available & there is 1 left for the same price. There is also a new SACD master of BTO’s first 2 recordings for an amazing $25 on the Vocalion label

  9. Rashers says:

    I just ordered “Hard Luck Stories” for €58.82 on – they gave me a €12 promotional discount at the checkout.

    • SimonP2 says:

      Thanks Rashers – my order also attracted promotional discount on – came to just over £56 including shipping.

  10. Nico says:

    Sunday bonanza with Richard and Linda Thompson 70,64€ ( and the Rolling Stones vinyl box II 301,74€ ( Enjoy.

  11. Richard Fisher says:

    The Smiths The Queen is Dead Deluxe Edition [3SHM-CD+DVD] just £23 at Amazon UK.

  12. johnny john says:

    Thank you Paul for spotting the Flaming Pie super deluxe. The lowered price is also on Amazon US and Amazon CA. Ordered at for €136. Flaming Pie is one of the best McCartney release and I bought for this reason. Even at this price, I consider it’s overprice for a 7 discs boxset. Also ordered Black Sabbath Vol 4 deluxe for £32 also from Have good day all.

  13. David Ware says:

    Flaming pie can only be delivered in Germany

  14. Kauwgompie says:

    For American residents, the Flaming Pie SDE is $147.

  15. Greg says:

    For US readers, the Flaming Pie SDE on is now $147, which is the lowest it’s been.

  16. Richard Fisher says:

    Crooked Piece of Time, the John Prine CD Box Set, is down to £26 at Amazon UK. Currently out of stock but worth a punt! Being sold around the £55 mark elsewhere.

  17. Simonp2 says:

    McCartney Flaming Pie Deluxe box is currently 168 euros on
    It has been cheaper in the past on (not anymore- currently 377 dollars) but this box is disappearing fast now so if you need it, this price is probably as good as it will get..

    • Dav says:

      Not available to be delivered to UK apparently

      • Simonp2 says:

        The McCartney thing is weird. I ordered one for a friend last night (from Uk) and all seemed to go through as normal. Today though, its now saying that this product will ship direct from Amazon US – which is in itself strange as Amazon US have now sold out and only have one third party seller – ironically from the UK…
        You can appreciate though why Amazon Germany may not want to get involved in collecting taxes on imports from US to UK.

    • DaveySussex says:

      Strange that they won’t ship to the UK but the price they quote includes the import fees!

  18. Neil Woodcock says:

    Vol 4 is only US$58 on the Rhino store. But I assume this was be shipped from US so added cost? Import duty?

  19. andrew R says:

    The vol 4 has American Warner’s labels . Is it taken from
    The American masters which had inferior sound back in the day or are the UK and US identical this time?

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      Highly likely to be identical audio…

      • Neil Woodcock says:

        Do we know if the audio of the main album is just the existing 2009 remaster? The blurb on the Rhino site says “newly remastered” but does not say when and by whom

        • Wayne C says:

          Done by Steven Wilson apparently, how he finds the time to do all this. Unless there is another Steven Wilson!. Looking forward to getting the vinyl box set – surely one of Sabbaths top three albums?. My favourite.

          • Dean says:

            That’s incorrect. Steve Wilson did no work on the album proper (disc 1) of this set. He worked on the extras. It is an entirely NEW remastering. They have released one track thus far, I think, and the comments on it have not been positive.

  20. Duncan says:

    Amazon de doing Simple Minds, Street Fighting Years box set for £26

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      It’s actually £18.50, I think…

      • Stan Butler says:

        Would have snapped up the Simple Minds box, but Amazon Germany sadly won’t ship to Northern Ireland. Very peed off about this.
        Most of the deluxe box set offers highlighted on SDE, that I have then bought, have been through international Amazon Sites, as Amazon UK offers are rare.
        Unfortunately those days are gone.

        • Paul Sinclair says:

          Yes, I’m sad for friends in Northern Ireland who have been put in a less than ideal situation in terms of Brexit.

        • Steven Campbell says:

          @Stan Butler & Paul Sinclair, yep as a fellow Northern Ireland native I am peed off about the same situation for I almost ordered the Black Crowes box set off Amazon Italy only to find that I couldn’t. I have the CD version ordered via the offer someone posted about on here on ebay as I’d it ordered via Amazon UK and though they usually do drop the prices again before sale I cancelled the Amazon UK order and went with eBay. Really peed off as I have got many’s an order via the Amazon’s sister sites in Europe and it now looks like that is going to be a thing of history unless something is done. I bought the Street Fighting Years box set when it came out and was a little annoyed when I saw it cheaper even though it wasn’t that expensive to start with but in a way because of the embargo on us Northern Ireland folks have on Europe at the minute I then didn’t feel just as bad as I couldn’t have went for the offer anyway.
