UK: The Cars / Heartbeat City remastered & expanded CD – £5
Expanded & Remastered Shake It Up is the same price.
UK: The Cure / Mixed Up 3CD deluxe – £9.99
Under a tenner for this triple-disc set is amazing. It includes a newly remastered version of the original set on disc one, a further CD of extra remixes (either from the original era, or from 1990) and a final CD of brand new Robert Smith ‘Torn Down’ remixes.
UK: Paul Weller / True Meanings CD – £4.99
Standard CD, not the deluxe, but this is such a good album and well worth a fiver!
UK: Marillion / Clutching at Straws 4CD+blu-ray – £24
Excellent price for this set which includes live material, demos, 5.1 mix and documentary.
UK: Various Artists / 80’s Symphonic CD – £4.99
This various artists compilation with “80s originals combined with new orchestral arrangements” has only been out a couple of months but with a price of under £5, is now the time to take a punt? Read my interview with a-ha’s Paul Waaktaar-Savoy where he discusses the orchestral ‘Take On Me’.
