ITALY: Rush / Hemispheres super deluxe – €117 (or £99)

Massive box set is £161 in the UK

ITALY: Popol Vuh / Essential Album Collection 6LP box – €88 (or £75)

Save about £25 on the UK price by pre-ordering this set from Italy.

ITALY: Brian Eno / Music For Installations 6CD ‘plexiglas’ box – €208 (or £180)

This is an all-analogue mastered box and is £116 in the UK.

This has the hologram effect vinyl. £114 in the UK, so close to half price.

ITALY: Kate Bush / Remastered Part 1 7CD box – €43 (or £36)

This box set has its flaws (largely presentational), but Kate’s first seven albums remastered for less than £40 is the very definition of a ‘no-brainer’! More than £20 cheaper than the current UK price.

    Aretha box order cancelled. Not a happy bunny!

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      Really? They must have got too many orders and run out of stock. Lots of people *did* get it, so unlucky! :(

    • Wayne C says:

      That’s such a shame , I was gutted I couldn’t order it at 5pm, was still on offer at 2pm. But I feel sorry for you it’s much worse thinking you’ve managed to get one only to find out otherwise.

      That deal was a ridiculous bargain to be honest.

    • scarymonster says:

      Mine cancelled too :(

      Hoping the Kate Bush CD box will come soon…

    • Keith Slatter says:

      Unfortunately I’m another “unlucky” Amazon It customer whose had their Aretha box order cancelled! Strange how its still for sale at the higher price? You win some…you lose some!

    • Peter Stanton says:

      My Joni Mitchell order has been put back, so fingers crossed that this will actually happen

  2. Wayne C says:

    Could anyone explain how Amazon Italy can drop the price of the Stones box by such a large discount as they did last week?, it worked out to £220 or so with free postage which was a brilliant saving (missed it as was working), now it’s about £350 on that site. I’m just wondering how they manage to discount so much and then increase the price – £130 is a tremendous discount which cannot be sustainable I would think for a long period. I’m just interested in how these things work?, surely they must pay the distributor close to that discount?.

  3. Robbert says:

    Aretha box arrived today from Italy!

  4. Roberto R says:

    Automatic for the People box set is 48 euros on Amazon. It

  5. Janice Pugh says:

    I pre-ordered my Heaven 17 Vinyl Box Set and it has been dispatched today. Then they drop the price! I have requested a cancellation and will re-order for the cheaper price. I thought Amazon adjusted the price automatically if cheaper on the day of dispatch? Seems not in this case!

    • Paul Taylor says:

      You’ll need to have an acceptable reason to return it or they’ll charge you postage, Prime member or not. Mind you, it will be a small hit compared to £36!

  6. Noel Fitzsimons says:

    Why the sudden price drop on the Heaven 17 vinyl box set. Did it fair badly on the pre-sale over the last few months I wonder. Are record companies at last beginning to realise that the buying public are not as gullible as they may think. This is a sensible price for a great box set. Thanks for the tip Paul.

  7. Branny says:

    I picked up the Play to win cd box set from Zoom for £68.99 and received it yesterday. Unfortunately I forgot to cancel my Amazon copy in time so have just received that too. Off to the Post office later.

  8. Martin Power says:

    Grabbed the Aretha and the Heaven 17 just made up Paul thanks

  9. Tom says:

    Been waiting for the H17 vinyl to drop.
    That’s a great price.

  12. Martin Goss says:

    Have to say I love this website, so many savings i have made because of it x

  13. Anthony says:

    Glad I ordered the Aretha box when I did.

  14. Stephen Davison says:

    Thanks Paul, ordered Aretha earlier. Such a great price.

  15. Wayne C says:

    Aretha and Stones now back up In price – was eating till I got home to order them – what a shame !!.


    would have loved the Aretha Franklin set but shipping to Canada was more that the box set!!! so, had to pass.By the way, I love SDE!!! Just sayin’

  17. Alastair says:

    Thanks Paul. Went for the Kate Bush set.
    Loving the Alien CD box is available from at about £81 delivered to the UK. Not a huge saving, but it hasn’t moved in price very much since it came out, and might be enough for some people to go for it.

  18. Graham Turner says:

    *Had* to go for the Aretha box at that price. Thanks Paul.

  19. SeanL says:

    Stones & Aretha ordered cheers Paul

  20. Jurijs says:

  21. Emanuele says:

    Great deal on Aretha’s box, thanks Paul!

  22. Noel Fitzsimons says:

    Aretha box set at an incredible price
    Many thanks for the tip

  23. torchomatic says:

    Thanks for this. I ordered the Human League vinyl. I’m loathe to get it even at just under £50 as I think it is pretty much a rip-off for what it is, but at least better than paying the Amazon UK price

  24. Robbert says:

    Forgot to mention:
    Aretha Franklin :)

  25. Robbert says:

    Atlantic Records 1960s Collection 6 lp-set € 32,77 at

  26. Dan Timmons says:

    Thanks Paul – been waiting for the Stones box to come closer to that $300 price point. Order placed!

  27. Matthew says:

    Thanks – I’ve also been waiting patiently for a deal on the Stones box. I very much doubt it’ll go cheaper than that and if it does I doubt it’ll be by much.

  28. Andy P says:

    Wings ‘Wildlife’ 2 CD version is down to 10.85 euro on Amazon Spain

  29. John says:

    Paul – I have been waiting patiently for a deal on the Rolling Stones box. Without your message I would never have known. Keep up the great work.

  30. tad says:

    There is an official unboxing video for the Stones boxset “The Rolling Stones-Vinyl Unboxing trailer” on youtube. Mick Jagger is throwing the LP’s as he does not care at all for us potential buyers, not showing anything and treating the vinyl the worst I have ever seen. The saddest part of the video is watching Charlie Watts’ face. He is shocked. I don’t understand the message they want to give us with this video.

  31. Nelson Lee says:

    Whitesnake Slide it in 7 cd box £49.99 at Amazon uk

  32. John says:

    Thanks Paul, had to sign up for the Stones box. Kept hoping that they would break it open to individual releases but doesn’t look like that’s going to happen.

  33. Jim says:

    It’s not a massive bargain but Van Morrison’s Healing Game 3CD is £16.99 on just now.

  34. Bruce N says:

    The Humble Pie A&M vinyl box set is currently 115 euros on Amazon Italy whihc is a really good deal

  35. bob peel says:

    Kate Bush remastered 1 works out at just under £41 to the UK

  36. Foxee says:

    For a fleeting moment on Amazon UK this afternoon, Kate Bush Vinyl Boxset no 2 dropped to just £44!!!! Snatched one with all due alacrity! Surely that’s about the cheapest any of those boxsets have been so far?

  37. Peter Reeves says:

    Cheers Paul ……………. couldn’t resist Stones what a bargain

  38. Tony Ainscough says:

    Was actually going to buy the Eagles legacy boxset this week and seen your post on the Stones great price so I pulled the trigger thank you Paul

  39. Frank says:

    I would love to have a cd box version of The Rolling Stones albums!! Are they remastered

  40. Jim Breeds says:

    Cor! How have I not seen that Joni Mitchell goodness before. Currently out of stock at Amazon UK, but I’ve ordered anyway and hope they honour the price.

  41. Robert Laversuch says:

    Ordered for the sake of having it. Thanks for heads up.

  42. Tom M says:

    Ordered, even though I have the vinyl version of this but never opened it (turntable needs a little work). This will do just fine in the meantime.

  43. Galley says:

    The only Joni Mitchell I have is the “Hits” CD, so I couldn’t pass up this deal!

  44. Dustin Soper says:

    $22 USD shipped to Nashville. Ended up being cheaper (£13.57) when checking out than on the actual item page. Thanks for the heads-up!

  45. BritinDetroit says:

    Golly gosh Paul, been tracking this for ever and really appreciate the Alert. Ordered and I will see it in Detroit at the end of April
    Brill, thanks again

  46. Simon Taylor says:

    Do I need this? No. Have I ordered? Yes. Been gazing at this for a while and today I treated myself because I mowed the lawn and got all the ironing done. I think this is fair reward. Thanks for the link, Paul.

    • Peter Stanton says:

      Do I need this? No. Have I ordered? Yes.

      Been gazing at this for a while. Already have most of it, but this is why we follow SDE.

      Thanks again Paul

  47. Wayne Olsen says:
