    “The Girl From Chickasaw County – The Complete Capitol Masters” by Bobbie Gentry (8 CDs)
    now $76.57 US from Amazon US…….

      For those who can’t just click on the link (because they’re at work for instance):

      First link is the CD-box with the Columbus Albums Collection by Earth, Wind And Fire for GBP 31 (16 discs), the second leads to John Denver’s 4-CD-set All Of My Memories for GBP 17.

      By the way for those interested in heavier stuff:

      I accidentally stumbled over what looks like a new edition of The Columbia Albums Collection by Blue Öyster Cult (17 discs) on, who are offering it for EUR 60, which is a lot cheaper than what most sellers on eBay or Discogs asked for it since it went OOP a while ago.

      And finally a plea to Amazon: They should try to headhunt the guy who developed the packaging for the SDE of R.E.M.’s Automatic For The People at Paul Smith – Absolutely brilliant. An ecological nightmare for the use of lots of bubble-wrap, but nothing could happen to the set while it was transported.

    Hi Paul
    Off topic, but just wondering if you plan to have any article on your site re the re-issue of Wild by Erasure. Read some news on it a while back from the erasure website. thanks.

  4. Runicen says:

    Thanks for the heads up on the Van Morrison live album. Scored the “expanded” volume and the original release for under $40 shipped to the states.

    Happy new year, Paul!

  5. Cornelius says:

    I ordered the Sinatra set but was disappointed that “So Macho” isn’t on it. I should have checked beforehand. Happy New Year, Paul.

    The Kate Bush vinyl box sets are on Amazon at £72.75 each or less

    Off topic but looking for general help….

    I have received an Amazon voucher in US Dollars and redeemed it on When ordering a CD what import duty will you normally pay? Can this be paid upfront via Amazon??

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      Only VAT is due in terms of importing to the UK, however sort that out for you by charging an ‘import fees desposit’. It’s a good system because you know the total cost upfront and there are no hidden royal mail/parcel force ‘processing charges’.

      • Gary Hunter says:

        Thanks Paul for that, good that you know the fees up front, fair play to Amazon for that, I presume it shows the fee at checking out stage does it?

    • Tony O says:

      GH (VAT) I think the royal mail will charge £8 + 20% of the price of your item, the £8 is the admin fee for the pleasure of taking your money, thats how it worked last time i got charged

  8. John Barleycorn says:

    For those on a budget look at the Aretha Franklin ‘Atlantic Singles Collection 1967-70’ 2 discs, 34 tracks at £4.99 on Amazon. Surely a steal. All the tracks seem to be in Mono if that’s a consideration for you.

    • Caroline says:

      They’re matching HMV’s instore sale price – I got it there on Sunday.

      While I’m here, Happy New Year everyone, especially Paul, of course. Health and happiness to you and yours.

    Everybody A Super Deluxe 2019 !

  10. Gisabun says:

    The “On Air” titles can drive you nuts. There are real label releases [such as Sinatra and The Rolling Bones] and then there are those bootleg cheapo labels.

  11. Paul E. says:

    A 4 Disc Van Morrison box set via an SDE Deal Alert under $20 delivered…that’s how to end 2018! Happy New Year Paul!!

  12. Simon Taylor says:

    Went for Sinatra. It was hearing (on you tube) the banter between tracks/rehearsals that sold it. Looks a lovely set for £12.99.

    I must hold back on these offers in 2019. No more room, i already need to do a cull to fit my Christmas additions in. I may have to unsubscribe from SDE alerts.

    Aint gonna happen tho is it!

  13. Mark H. says:

    Sinatra set can’t be shipped to the US. So sad.

    • AndyB says:

      The link doesn’t go to the proper page. Click on the “new offers” and the 12.99 one is sold by Amazon and is shipped to the US. I just bought it for less than $19. With shipping. Thanks, Paul. Happy New Year!

      The Cure – Mixed Up (3CD Deluxe Edition) is £9.99 at HMV. I picked it up in store on Boxing Day.


      • Richard says:

        Managed to find Mixed Up in my local HMV in Croydon. £15.99 sticker, £9.99 when scanned. Thanks for the headsup. Sad that the store has notices it will close on 24 January. I guess even if they find a buyer that one’s a goner.

        • Chris says:

          Croydon is my local hmv as well. The store closure on 24 Jan is because the lease is up and they are vacating in advance of the Whitgift redevelopment. Whether that actually happens is another story but the store closure is u related to hmv’s current woes.

  16. Paul Taylor says:

    Cheers Paul.
    Grabbed both Neil Young and Van Morrison sets.
    That keeps Mrs T happy as well as me! (She’s a big Van fan!)

  17. Stevieb says:

    Thanks Paul, I’ve ordered the Sinatra, shame this wasn’t a price match with HMV else I’d have happily bought it from there, as I do with around 75% of my music purchases. But they don’t stock it.

  18. Robert Laversuch says:

    Bagged old blue Eyes – thank you much for that!

  19. Steve says:

    Happy new year Paul, keep up the great, great work. That Youthquake reissue was utterly fantastic.

  20. Ben Williams says:

    For those who havent picked up the Van Morrison set – well worth it for £15!! :-D

  21. Ian Murphy says:

    Cheers Paul, I’ve just grabbed the Van Morrison. I haven’t seen the price as low as that so that’s brilliant!

  22. Jono says:

    Grabbed the Neil Young earlier when I spotted the deal alert. It should arrive in an hour or so! Happy New Year indeed!
