    David Bowie loving the Alien boxset £90.93 on Amazon uk at the moment

    • Richard John says:

      I just saw that and I was so proud of getting it from Germany where it worked out to about 88 quid. Wonder why it took so long to drop. I was also going to get A New career boxset but its rocketed update from 81 to 95 quid on amazon. Ouch.

  2. Nelson Lee says:

    Kate Bush cd boxes now £48.48 & £78.81 On Amazon uk

    Metallica Hardwired ….to self destruct Super Deluxe Vinyl CD Boxset with 3xcoloured vinyl bonus tracks on CD, art prints and memorabilia … only £28 on amazon UK.

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01L2ES9AK/ref=as_li_ss_tl?smid=A3OSYVMHF0WC62&psc=1&linkCode=ll1&tag=superdeluxeed-21&linkId=7d5283c255ae3f4b43aa4f5c013416ef&language=en_GB

    • David Harold says:

      I ordered the Metallica set – despite saying it was the four disc, what I received, and now have to send back, was the RSD 2LP red vinyl version. Amazon no help at all with a replacement, only refund.

      • Paul Taylor says:

        David Harold;
        It was sold by a third party seller, wmdservices. That’s why you’ll have been given a refund rather than replacement
        I ordered a rare Duran Duran live CD from them via Amazon for about £22 and received some Blue Oyster Cult album that I’d never heard of on blue vinyl. I complained to Amazon and, like you, was refunded and asked to send the wrong item back. Within a week the CD was back up for sale at £46. To say I was angry is an understatement
        I suspect that Metallica album will either disappear from Amazon listings and reappear at a higher price. If I was you I would complain in the strongest terms to Amazon customer service and tell them that you are aware that this seller has done this sort of thing before. It’s bad enough that sellers screw buyers on eBay when they’ve sold something for less than they wanted, but for it to happen on Amazon is beyond contempt

      • Mike williams says:

        Me too. Packaged up ready to return today. I did reorder again this morning but if you’ve also been sent the same wrong version then I guess it will happen again so I’ve cancelled.

    • KevinS says:

      The same happened with the order I made, I received the two disc red vinyl RSD version instead of the advertised/listed four disc vinyl box.
      On the positive side, I raised this with amazon customer service and they said the same as others have experienced, they can’t replace the item for the one that is listed but they offered a full refund, told me to keep the two disc version and as a gesture of goodwill credited me a 10 quid amazon voucher.

      Happy New Year.

  6. Andrew M says:

    I got the Beatles (finally) in HMV two days ago for £99.99, and then exchanged it yesterday when the original one was damaged). Got number 22,658.

    I have noticed physical music sets seem to have dropped in price more consistently recently and that coupled with the recent news that it looks like HMV are going to disappear from our high street, and I wonder what future we have……:(

    It depresses the hell out of me :(

    What are my daughters going to do in the future?

    Paul I think we’re of similar ages, and I know you’re busy, but it would be interesting maybe at some point to look at the history of high street music retailing – virgin, our price, tower records, woolies, HMV, independents.

    What the hell happened to us?

    • Ollie Carlisle says:

      Check out the book Going For A Song by Garth Cartwright. It’s a history of British record shops and a great & interesting read. Probably available from Amazon, ironically!

  7. Paul Taylor says:

    Shoot me down if anyone so wishes, but I never understood who that GnR box set was aimed at. As others have said with a ‘limited’ run of 10,000 and price point of £850/$1000 it was never going to be rare or desirable. Vast amount of content but it would almost take a lifetime to get through it all! Plus, at the end of the day it’s all connected to ONE album. The Nazareth box even at its full price was exponentially better value and covered pretty much a full career. Yes it had a CD/vinyl mix but that sort of thing just seems to bother purists.
    Now that this big wooden box is selling for around half price I wonder if the marketing genius who dreamt it up is still working for the company…..

  8. william says:

    The GNR box set would need to drop by $600 or at least $550 to be worth it. There are a lot of artists’ box set that aren’t this over priced.

  9. David Else says:

    Jean-Michel Jarre albums
    Planet Jarre: 50 Years of Music – (Deluxe Album)
    Equinoxe Infinity – Jean-Michel Jarre

  10. Filippo Rostoni says:

    At the moment it is sold for € 569 on the european/UK main store.

    https://uk.gnrmerch.com/*/*/Appetite-for-Destruction-Locked-N-Loaded-Edition/5UVQ0000000

  11. Filippo Rostoni says:

    During Black Friday period, this huge box was around € 550 on Amazon Germany main store for a week or something…. I am serious.

  12. Jeff says:

    Hey PAUL

    The GnR “Locked n Loaded” is only $499.99 on their own website

    gnrmerch.com

    Not sure why you didn’t post my post yesterday about it.

    Still in my opinion too expensive considering there are 10,000 of these available, making it uncollectable.

    Now if it goes it $299.99 I’ll buy it!!

  13. Eric says:

    G n R Locked and Loaded is $499 on the gnrmerch.com website. 1/2 price!(from the original price) Only until Jan. 3
    Just ordered mine!

  14. Samppa says:

    I think I might buy the uber-boxset of Appetite era, if it came down to more reasonable price like 100€ or so. I have the original vinyl and can access all the songs on streaming services while waiting for the price to come down..

  15. Gary C says:

    Merry Christmas Paul, hope you’re taking some time off this year

  16. eric slangen says:

    Good to see the price is going down for the BIG box but it’s still 100 -200 euros too expensive.

    • CraigH says:

      How much was it originally? I recall some folks claiming is was an ‘investment’ as it was a ltd piece, doesn’t look to have been much of an investment!

  17. alan hansen says:

    for the record, the single-disc distillation of this set is excellent.

  18. Jeff says:

    Bananarama is SRO!!!

  19. Stephen Hunt says:

    Thanks Paul, just ordered the Jean Michel Jarre and Lindsey Buckingham cds. Very happy!!

  20. Kauwgompie says:

    Does anyone know if these SoftCell boxes contain the corrected DVD?

    I cannot get over the Soft Cell box set price. I already have one (from Amazon.de) for a decent price but it is not available at all on Amazon.com so for that price I decided to buy it again. I highly recommend all American Soft Cell fans to jump on this. It’s completely not available in the USA. It was supposed to be released end of November on amazon.com but it never happened. Probably because there wasn’t any meaningful volume left. I figured I can always sell it here in the USA. Price is exactly $62 if you order it in UK Pounds and use the credit card conversion. Amazon always screws your on the conversion rate.

    Happy Boxing Day all!!

    • Dean says:

      Once the word got out about the poor mastering, excitement for this set died down pretty quickly…..

      • Chris Squires says:

        And here’s the funny thing, I think it is fine. Either my ears are shot to pieces or maybe I am just not so picky or obsessed, but I think it’s a decent set and at £55 it is the definition of no-brainer. My guess is they still contain the original DVD but that should still be available to get a replacement. My replacement came through quite quickly from the first batch.

        • Kauwgompie says:

          @Chris Squires, couldn’t agree more about the no brainer. Thanks for insight on DVD. Will email for replacement now.

      • Kauwgompie says:

        Poor mastering?? The thing sounds excellent. Been playing it for months.

        • Richard S says:

          I thought it sounded fine too. I don’t see what the fuss is about. Now the 2 disc singles collection, that DOES sound a bit ropey, even to my old, untrained ears. Would snap this up at 55 quid, unfortunately I bought it full price … sigh! You win some…

          • Neil says:

            What 2 disc singles collection ? As far as the sound goes the mastering is very poor and you would think that they couldn’t top that but they did with the single disc collection which sounds horrendous. I was looking forward to hearing Loving You, Hating Me (Special USA Mix) on CD for the first time but the rip i downloaded from a well known blog sounds a hundred times better.

          • Richard S says:

            Neil, Sorry, yes it was the recent K&S SINGLE disc collection I meant.

  21. Jeff Milrod says:

    I would like to wish PAUL SINCLAIR & all of the members who contribute to this site a very HAPPY HOLIDAY season and a HEALTHY & PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR for 2019!!

    This site is TOTALLY AMAZING and I couldn’t imagine being without it. How I managed before joining just over a year ago, I have no idea!!

    Rock On,,,,,,SDE & PAUL

    LET THE NEW BRING IMMENSE RICHES AND PEACE THROUGHOUT THE WORLD

    BLESS YOU ALL

  22. Kai Karkkainen says:

    I would also like to wish you Paul and the entire SDE community a wonderful Christmas time and a Happy New Year. I stumbled upon the SDE site a long time ago and I simply cannot imagine a day without it. Looking forward to another year of interesting content here…

  23. Peter Stanton says:

    I hope that you are having a wonderful Christmas Paul and all the very best to you and your family for 2019.

    As many others have said, thank you for all that you do and for all the deals that I have found via SDE.

    I’m a big Stones collector, first gig I went to, 1965, so whether to go for the not really very appealing Beggars Banquet reissue or not? It was definitely too expensive before, but is now tempting. Another glass and I expect that I will hit the button.

    Once again, thanks and all the best.

    Peter

  24. Vishal says:

    Wishing you – Paul and SDE readers, and your family a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!

  25. Le Baron says:

    I can’t believe it’s been one year since I told you SDE was my favorite website on earth.
    It still is ! :)
    Thanks again and again for what you do for us, 365 days a year.
    Can’t wait for Paul Young’s box set and, who knows…Seeds of Love Deluxe and 2 new Mike Oldfield Deluxe releases (Islands and Earth Moving) this year?
    Thanks again !!

  26. Mathew Lauren says:

    Paul,

    Thanks for another great year of “heads-up notifications” — deal$ on 5.1+ surround-sound PHYSICAL recordings! Here’s to hoping that next year will bring us even more, NEW, well-mixed, discrete, and immersive 5.1+ original, studio-album reissues (are u listening Jimmy Page?), as well as NEW, blues-based, 5.1+ rock/pop/jazz, PHYSICAL recordings.

    Hope you and yours have a Merry Christmas.

    Cheers,

    ml

    p.s. Nice work on the Paul Young reissue. Maybe next time with the 5.1+, yeah? …on a different PY reissue-campaign.

  27. Andrew Barnett says:

    Thanks for all your work this year, Paul. Happy Christmas to you
    Ps got the bananarama bargain!

  28. Richard says:

    To Paul And Staff,

    A very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, too. Thanks for all your hard work and love that you give. I appreciate this site and the fans and music lovers as well. Peace, joy, and happiness.
    We need more physical products. May they learn from Jethro Tull on packaging.
    Richard in Brooklyn, NYC.
    Cheers

  29. Stevie B says:

    The Soft Cell boxset for £54.99 on Amazon comes with instant Amazon Music AUTORIP. Thanks again SDE :)

  30. Stevie B says:

    Soft Cell boxset ordered, thank you and Merry Christmas ❄️

  31. Electric Sydney says:

    All the best Paul! I think you’re swell, my wallet disagrees, but it’s been a good year for SDE type music packages.

  32. Gunnar says:

    Happy Christmas to Paul, family, and followers! Following your excellent work from Recife, Brazil. Thank you!

  33. H says:

    Here is to a download free 2019!

  40. Derek Langsford says:

    Mine was No. 0110087. disappointingly high as I pre-ordered it as soon as it was announced. I got No. 8 of the Goldfrapp Tales of US boxed set.

  41. John Lim says:

    A very Merry Christmas to you and yours.
    Thank you for an info filled year.

    • Martin York says:

      Just like to add my best wishes for Christmas to you Paul for a wonderful online resource and shop. Hope you have a restful break and see you in 2019. Festive greetings to all SDE customers too

  42. Gerbrand says:

    David Bowie – Loving The Alien now €92,50 (£83) at amazon.de. Cheapest it has been in Europe I think.

    Merry Xmas to Paul and all the SDE readers.

    • Richard John says:

      Just bought the Bowie set from Germany. Woot – quite cheap, although it rose to €93.30 between adding it to my shopping basket and paying for it. rather odd.

    • Gerbrand says:

      Bowie Loving the alien. even cheaper on amazon.it, €87,50. I’m not buying it yet, expecting it to go down even more.

  43. xymox970 says:

    The price on amazon.uk has just gone back up for In No Sense ? & Treasure Hiding…….
    I mean…..really ? Who does that on Christmas Eve ? It should be exactly the opposite, right ?

  44. GentleRabbit says:

    Merry Christmas, to Paul and to All. Let’s hope it’s a good one.

  45. Trevor Hughes says:

    Hi Paul just ordered Bananarama CD/DVD. Cracking Value. Also Supertramp Breakfast In America on Picture Disc for £12.99 on Amazon as well. Many thanks for all your Hard Work across the Last Year keeping us informed with some Amazing Deals. To you and your Family have yourself a Super Funk Christmas and Golden New Year.

  46. Gary Hunter says:

    Thanks for the heads up on the Bananarama 2CD/DVD Set, not a massive fan at all but I am sure it will be worthing watching the DVD and of course the CD’s, can’t complain for £4.99.

    Best Wishes to Paul & Super Deluxe Edition Readers for Christmas and the New Year.

  47. Ben Williams says:

    Many thanks Paul for another year of SDE.

  49. J says:

    Paul

    Hi Paul, many thanks for your great site and twitter alerts, I work on the road and don’t get the time to do much media surfing, so it’s great to have this all done by you!
    I’ve had some some great deals this year, some I’m only getting around to opening now I’m off for Christmas.
    Have a great Christmas and thanks again.

    Thanks for your continued hard work this year Paul.
    Merry Christmas

  54. Wayne Olsen says:

    Merry Christmas, Paul! Thanks for all you do!

  55. Werner says:

    You should all keep an eye on the Italian Amazon site for the Beatles White album box. It has has now just gone up from 105 to 117 € which is about 105 Pounds. It is quite consistently cheap there.

  56. John Barleycorn says:

    Both Beatles White Album Super Deluxe and the Van Morrison CD (very good btw) are £99.99 and £3.99 respectively on HMV website too so that is probably indicative of their pricing instore too for those that can get there – subject to availability naturally.
    Elvis Costello also £6.99 at HMV online.
    Season’s greetings SDE community and especially Paul.

  57. Miguel Rocha says:

    Paul, wishing you and your family a very happy holiday season. It would be easy for me to complain here about how much you’ve helped empty my wallet, fed my music addiction, etc, but, in reality, what you do is really wonderful in that you’ve saved me countless $$$ and hours of “window shopping” and research with your hard work. Eternally grateful.
    A very sincere thank you and best wishes,
    Miguel

  58. David M says:

    Am thinking the White Album set may not be selling too well. I picked it up last week on Amazon Canada for $118, almost half it’s original price.

    • The Golden Age Of 2019 says:

      Over 100,000 copies of the big box sold world wide, probably more now.

      • David M says:

        Source?

        • The Golden Age Of Ornithopters says:

          Source: Someone on the Steve Hoffman site was discussing this very subject, WA 50th sales, and apparently that was the figure quoted over a month ago. Many internet sellers, the Amazon’s included sold out, that is a fact. This tells me there has either been bad distraction planning or another factory run. I tried getting figures on the net after I posted my reply to your comment but couldn’t access anything of use.
          The S.E. charted at No6 in the U.K. & U.S.A., I know that to get to that position in the album charts you don’t have to sell many copies but I think at least 50,000 were sold in the U.S.A. In the first week of release. The S.E. also made the top 10 in several other countries. 100, 000 is probably a low estimation of worldwide sales. The John Lennon Imagine box has been under £60 In at least one of the Amazons since it’s release. It’s very sillier in size and no of discs, 4CD/2BD vs 6CD/1BD. The price The WA 50 is now selling for is still higher that what it could have been profitably sold for from it’s release date.

    • David M says:

      Correction it was about $140

      • The Golden Age Of Beibg Right! says:

        I will repeat what I said in my last post and post no more on this subject as it seems that you are nitpicking and haven`t paid the correct fee to have a nitpick. Minimum entry fee £60 the same price as: `The John Lennon Imagine box has been under £60 In at least one of the Amazons since it’s release.`

  59. CJL says:

    Thanks to Caroline for the Cocteau’s heads-up. Checked on Amazon UK & it’s the same price as HMV (£13.99). No-brainier at that price.

  60. Silica says:

    Wishing everyone a very Happy Christmas & a peaceful New Year. Thank you Paul for all your hard work keeping us all up to date. We are all financially poorer, yet musically happier with all the great deals and wonderful box sets that have been released this year. Here’s to a great 2019! :-)

  61. Shawn says:

    Thanks for the lead! Soft Cell box was $64 shipped to the USA which is about $40 less than the next best price I found stateside. Hope you and all of your readers have a Merry Christmas!

  62. Bob McCartney says:

    Well put, Andrew. Hope everyone has the happiest of holidays. Paul, your hardwork is much appreciated!

  63. Richard says:

    Just ordered Remastered in Vinyl 2 for £63 from Amazon UK. Been waiting for a decent price drop on this. Right now it’s cheaper than buying them separately so trigger finally pulled.

  64. John S says:

    Does anyone know if the technical problems with the DVD in the Soft Cell box set were sorted, if so it’s a bargain as it has dropped to £54 from £90!

  65. drbryant says:

    All kinds of pressing issues being reported on the Kate Bush boxes. I think that people are holding off buying for that reason

  66. Marc says:

    Cheers GHB…..been waiting for REM drop! Finally a Xmas present for me

  67. DP says:

    Did anyone ever get a response or replacement regarding the bad Soft Cell dvd?
    I’ve heard nothing

  68. Cornelius says:

    MERRY CHRISTMAS to you Paul. Thanks for the website, bargains and info.

  69. Enrico G. says:

    Pink Floyd’s “The Early Years” is only 315 on Amazon UK.

  70. SimonF says:

    Hope that Beatles deal is still going tomorrow when my credit card will start over. Dare not put another penny on the December bill!

  71. Jon says:

    Re the White Album – I jumped on the AmazonDE 99 euro deal, only to have it dispatched from AmazonUK. And the Brits, who once ruled the waves, can not pack a box set so it reaches the colonies. Mine arrived with corners dented and the plastic sleeve cracked. Major disappointment, and not the first time. Any US buyers should beware – I won’t order anything heavy from AmazonUK again.

    • Michael says:

      Agreed Jon. I’ve had so many packages, regardless of weight, arrive from Amazon UK damaged or half opened as a result of faulty packing. Got the CCR box last week with a big old dent on the front bottom.

      • Christopher Merritt says:

        Same here. Amazon UK deliveries to me in the US arrive with a totally mangled box 9 times out of 10…

  72. adam shaw says:

    Merry Xmas and Happy New Year to you Paul and your family.
    Thanks for a great site and I hope all the readers and writers on here get the SDEs they have been dreaming of .

  73. Steve says:

    Beatles box set works out to £97 with shipping and VAT from Canada which makes it $20 cheaper than domestic, awesome!

  74. Eamonn says:

    Is the “import deposit fee” from Amazon US purchases ever partially/refunded, in anyone’s experience?

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      Seem to recall I may have had something back… although can’t really remember the details.

    • Heinz says:

      Yes, it has been sometimes, but always only around 10 to 50 cents
      for orders between 50 and 150 dollars (shipped to Europe).

      Merry Christmas to all here!!

  75. Andrew M says:

    Hmm, interesting. Still haven’t taken the plunge on the Beatles. The missus offered to get it for me yesterday in HMV but I said no due to cost / budget ratio.

    However, her parents haven’t sent anything for me and said to get something and they’d chip in. So finding out what their budget is. £20 or more and I’m jumping.

    Oh the delicacy of these decisions when you have young kids. The old days would have been bang day one and hang the cost.

    In the meantime can I wish you, Paul, and your family a fantastic Christmas and new year and also to all my fellow enthusiasts. May your Christmas be full of physical artefact and devoid of download codes!

  76. JPH says:

    Ugh ok I finally bit on Remastered In Vinyl I.

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      That’s as cheap as it has been, I think. Cheers.

    • Robert Laversuch says:

      Bagged it – cheers!

        Great track selection, horribly executed – brickwalled to hell.

          Indeed it is shame really as i would have bought it if it was properly mastered.

            Ooohh…….that price for Keychains now looks appetizing……could it be any lower ??

            They (apparently) have exchange faulty DVDs and broken spines (book), BUT if the main issue with the sound quality still remains (and I really dont see how they could fix that without starting to work on it all over again which aint gonna happen) I think I might stick with my 12″ Singles 3CD set. Its got complete a/b sides side, just like the 1st / 2nd disc of the new box set…….but its still hard to resist to those dub mixes / unreleased / new extended versions.
            Really love the fact that Forever The Same got that treatment. Surely deserved one…..Although more than 10 minutes seems a bit excessive……

    The four disc Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We? [25th Anniversary Edition] down £8 on Amazon to £24.99.

    • Will says:

      Cheers for the Cranberries tip – HMV have it down to £24.99 too.
      Just waiting for Howard Jones deluxe sets to drop in price along with the REM BBC set and I’ll be in the unusual situation of having nothing in my Wish list!

    Moody Blues – In Search Of The Lost Chord box set is currently £39.99 on Amazon UK. Think that’s the cheapest it has been.

      I got In Search Of The Lost Chord box set new/sealed off Amazon UK Marketplace Seller, “momox co uk” delivered (to UK address) for £29.98 on 6th December. Notified as a result of a Camel Camel Camel alert :)

    Not somewhere known for music deals, but Paul Smith online (they did an REM clothing line last year) have the 4 Disc Deluxe Edition of Automatic For The People for £38 in their sale at the moment (https://www.paulsmith.com/uk/paul-smith-r-e-m-automatic-for-the-people-4-disc-deluxe-edition). Might be of interest to anyone who has been waiting for a reduction on this set ….. happy holidays everyone …..

    • Richard says:

      Yes! Thanks GHB, finally picked this up. Great spot :)

    • CraigH says:

      Great info GHB, I’ve been waiting for this to drop. Present ordered for myself!

    • Klaus says:

      Thanks a lot GHB, finally a halfway decent price for this and i would never have found out about this as i’m in Germany and just have learned that there is such a thing as Paul Smith.
      Also i’d like to wish every contributer, reader and editor ( ;-)) ) of SDE a wonderful Christmas time, some quiet days in between X-Mas and New Years Eve and a good start into 2019.

    Worth keeping an eye on Amazon US for Kate Bush vinyl…. prices constantly dropping! Waiting for set 3 to go below $100…..( Currently $108)

    HMV in Glasgow has some sale stock out. I just bought Art Of Noise “In No Sense? Nonsense!” 2CD reissue for 8.99 and the single CD remaster of “The Dreaming” for £6.99.

    They also had the recent Cocteau Twins 4CD anthology for £13.99 amongst others.

    • xymox970 says:

      Many thanks for the tip.
      The same price now here on amazon.uk.

      Cancelled my Christmas deal for the Earth Wind & Fire box (21 – now 31) and Abba studio albums (18 – now back to 30) + Silhouettes & Statues box just in case something like this happens + Soft Cell box now down to 56…..

      Cant seem to combine all of these together at their lowest prices…….very frustrating indeed.

      Also on the lookout for Siouxsie – Peepshow.

      https://www.amazon.co.uk/Peepshow-Siouxsie-Banshees/dp/B000025MGN/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1545597122&sr=8-1&keywords=siouxsie+peepshow

      Here it says (remastered & expanded) version, but the image + description / tracklisting suggests the 1998 edition which is not.
      Has anyone here got it here from amazon, so I can know which one I would be getting ?

    • Ivor Canning says:

      The AoN ‘In No Sense? Nonsense!’ Deluxe 2 CD Edition is also on Amazon UK for £8.99 at the moment.
