      From my post about 15 down below.

      It got down to £114 a couple of days ago. I resisted as I already have one but it’s odd that they should appear now. It’ll be interesting to see what number turns up for you as they are numbered. Have they been saving up the returns? I don’t think it’s been re-pressed. It’s been 3rd party sellers only at £229 for the last 7 months. Interesting.

    • Bob Peel says:

      It’s now £100

    • Chris Squires says:

      Martin, Black or coloured? If coloured what number was it if it is numbered? If unnumbered it must be a silent re-press…..

      • Gary Shepherd says:

        Hi, I bought one yesterday and it was numbered. Guess they didn’t sell very well. Haven’t opened it yet, but I’m guessing I’ll need a replacement for Night Thoughts?

      • Martin says:

        Hi Chris
        Got a coloured vinyl set but didn’t notice anything indicated numbered edition. I actually had a replacement order yesterday as original had damaged sleeves and again no numbered edition that I can see

        • Richard says:

          Hi, I’ve just got the coloured vinyl set from Amazon this week. Mine was numbered. The number was on the base of the box.

        • Bruce N says:

          I bought the coloured box set from Amazon. It arrived in one of those plastic bags that they sometimes use. The box the vinyl is housed in was open within the bag (as the box was unsealed) and had lots of scuffs. The replacement came yesterday in a massively over sized box with a tiny bit of scrunched paper. The vinyl box was just about sealed [though the cellophane was ripped in places] but because it had been so loose in the box, there were scuffs on the box. The packaging is all over the place with Amazon products and I can’t believe anyone would genuinely think either packing a vinyl box set in a plastic bag or an oversized box is a good idea. DMG though have been good and they are sending out a replacement copy for Night Thoughts. I wonder how many of these sets Amazon have lying round?

      • Martin says:

        Correction to my earlier reply – had a look around the box and found that it is numbered on the base of the box – number 729/1000

        • Chris Squires says:

          How very odd, that it should have been noted as “unavailable” for quite a while. Can’t quite work out why they wouldn’t have wanted to sell stock when the secondary seller market was asking £200+.

          The only thing that leaps out is that it could have been an inventory issue. Maybe they just mislaid some, it happens, Cherry Red do it regularly and logistics is harder than we would imagine once humans get involved. No other reason to hold that many back to try and sell them months later at a lower price. I could imagine a shop doing that if the price settled higher but not to sell it lower. i.e at £100

          So very odd.

          • Gary Shepherd says:

            Maybe they pulled it after all the complaints, and are now just quietly trying to clear stock? Still haven’t checked, but I assume Night Thoughts is a mispress like all the others.

    Many thanks Paul – got in quick on ZZ Top yesterday. Delivered this morning. Unfortunately damaged – sent in a box FAR too big with standard token sheet of scrunched up paper. Amazon will replace of course but you would think they would have learnt by now and got some boxes made more suitable for box sets? They must be inundated with returns every day – or do people not bother and just accept the damage?

  5. Rich G says:

    Hi Paul. TRAFFIC The Studio Albums 1967-74 [VINYL BOX], down to £100.44 on at the moment. Cheapest it’s been I think.

  6. Scribbs says:

  10. steve says:

    yeah ZZ top literally changed price in my basket!

  11. Joe Embleton says:

    ZZ Top offer ended. Did not last long!

    • Luc says:

      Was just in time for the 22 price. Got confirmation in the mail. Although I have most of the pre Eliminator stuff on vinyl this price was too good to miss. Still find it strange that one of the best ZZ Top songs Blue Jean Blues is missing on this set.

  12. JohnC says:

    ZZ top says £22 but basket says £63 now

  13. Joe Embleton says:

    Hi Paul
    I don’t know if this if the king of thing you highlight but for those with more “adventurous” taste in music Burning World Records are having 10 euro vinyl sale at Discogs. I’ve nothing to do with the label but have bought from them several times and always had great service. There are some excellent deals on there including doubles and box sets!
