    Blackpool yeah…. 3 miles from me ….. then you said Paul Young… …. and I already have a SDE t-shirt Paul Rodgers and I’m there!

  3. CJL says:

    Well, my copy of the London Calling book/cd has just arrived & it looks like it has been kicked around the Amazon warehouse! The outer shrink-wrap is torn, the outer slipcase is split & dented with numerous scratch marks on it & every corner of the book is dented! Good ol’ Amazon! To answer Geoff D’s question – in my opinion, no, the book on its own isn’t worth £17.

    • bruno says:

      Of course it is all down to personal taste and mine turned up undamaged, but I think the book is excellent and worth GBP 17. It has pictures of handwritten lyrics showing the evolution of London’s Calling and other songs and many interesting articles. Now its not worth more than GBP 17 and the lack of bonus material is really poor but I was pleasantly surprised.

    Dylan now 55.60

  5. Tyrone says:

    Been waiting for the Dylan vinyl to drop. Nice one SDE

  6. Geoff D says:

    Hi all – is the Clash book worth it by itself? Have the album of course and love it – thanks

  7. Richard Fisher says:

    Concert for George 2cd/2 blu ray set now just £17 on Amazon UK!

  8. Tony says:

    Nice one Paul, I got The Clash before it went up, and also got these 2 Grace Jones Blu Rays after watching your video,

    Warm Leatherette (Blu-Ray audio)

    The Disco Years

    & I know it’s not a music release but this Dek magazine has more insight into the Bowie Outside era with some amazing photos, seeing these it’s amazing he went with that self portrait for the cover, I’m surprised his archive didn’t save this material for an Outside box set.

    I don’t suppose there’s many 5sos fans here but there’s a great twitter feed today with their fans looking for rude annotations on their signed album packages, nice to see some bands having a bit of fun with signing these limited editions & making some of them properly collectible.

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      Thanks Tony. I should have put some links up myself to still-in-print blu-ray audio releases. Will update tomorrow!

    • Synthgrizz says:

      Hehe, I also just ordered those this morning. Guess they will be sold out soon because of Paul’s video.

  9. Peter Stanton says:

    got the Dylan but just missed the Clash.It was there but disappeared as I tried to order.

    Thanks again Paul.

  10. John McCann'. says:

    Hi Paul I’ve mentioned this before, any chance you could do a roadshow, winter gardens Blackpool would be perfect, central for everybody, Paul young could do a concert there, at the same time, price would include your costs, let’s ssay,£50 a ticket for sde roadshow and Paul young concert, you could sell records and merchandise, I would love an sde t-shirt, what you think,

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      Thanks John. Would love to do something for SDE’s 10th anniversary earlier next year… will be giving it some thought over the next six months or so!

    • Steven Lowe says:

      Great idea about 4 miles for my house !

    • H says:

      Cracking idea John would love to meet the man behind all this brilliant stuff. Over to you Paul to get it sorted

    • Klaus says:

      @John McCann’:

      “Blackpool would be central, perfect for everybody”

      If you want to set an event that is central for EVERYBODY you’d have to plan two events, one on the North Pole for the northern hemisphere, one on the South Pole for the southern hemisphere.

      Obviously there are several reasons working against that.

      But i guess for you Britannia still rules the waves. ;-)

      • Paul Sinclair says:

        Before this discussion continues too much further, if I decide to organise any kind of event it will most probably be in London :)

      • John McCann' says:

        Im from Glasgow ,Klaus!(Scotland)
        I have no idea if Britannia still rules the waves,if Indeed they ever did,,,but I like being British!,I especially love Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire, and Devon,love going round the village pubs,stay safe,love your pal John,

  11. John says:

    Re. the Clash – a very fair price (which seems to have ended) and well done to those patient enough to wait for it to drop. I couldn’t resist buying the scrapbook when it was released and was fairly pleased to get it for £35 I think.
    I also have bought LC to death over the years so for me this was all about the book, which serves as an exhibition catalogue for the Museum of London show, which I was lucky enough to visit. Deduct a tenner for the CD and its original price was on a par with the sort of catalogues you get at major galleries and museums. That was my thinking, anyway!
    A shame the exhibition is closed, but if you can access BBC’s iPlayer, there’s quite a good mini documentary here which features a lot of its content.

    • Ian Smith says:

      Must agree, can’t see why the CD was included to be honest. Hard to believe anyone who would want the book wouldn’t already have a copy. The Vanilla Tapes CD from an earlier (2005?) deluxe edition would have been something a bit more interesting, at least.

      • Gisabun says:

        @Ian Smith:
        The CD wasn’t remastered or used a more recent mastering.
        I don’t think they’d drop too much from the price if it wasn’t included.
        Probably would of sold more if they included a DVD with live footage, interviews and whatever else visual. Would “fit” with a book more than an audio CD.

  12. Mike M says:

    Missed the clash deal unfortunately, you win some, you lose some. Oh well I’ll get over it. Keep up the good work Paul mate.

  13. DEREK CULLEN says:

    Only just received post….back up to £26…oh well…

  14. Andy G says:

    The Clash has now went up to £26.36

  15. Toby says:

    The Bootleg Series The Rolling Thunder Revue vinyl set a snip at £31.19 on Amazon UK:

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      Good spot. Thanks Toby.

    • Ian Smith says:

      Thanks Toby! Am working my way through the CD box set, so couldn’t resist ordering this.

      Despite amassing piles of CD box sets and suchlike, this is only the second Dylan record I’ll have as an LP, the other being the Blood on the Tracks test pressing from RSD. Cheers again.

  16. EW99 says:

    £15 was what I’ve been waiting for on the Clash book/CD. £17 is good enough – thanks for the notification Paul.

  17. Xavi says:

    ordered The clash! A must in every collector s Diacography!

  18. Bill says:

    Police CDs Every Move You Make: The Studio Recordings at £15 in Amazon UK today.

  19. Ern says:

    Fantastic. I was waiting for The Clash to come down in price. I went to the exhibition when it was on a couple of months back and a lot of what was on show is catalogued in the book.

    • Trash says:

      I wanted to go to the Clash exhibition as it’s close to where I was working, of course he lockdown happened before I got round to it.
      Was it any good?

      I like many others I skipped this previously as I have at least three versions of it already BUT at £17 who can resist? Certainly not I!

      • Ern says:

        It was great to see the merch, singles, albums, broken bass guitar, press clippings, clothes etc, up close at the exhibition but I was disappointed at how compact it all was in such a small space.
        I’m glad I went.

  20. CJL says:

    Been waiting for a deal on the Clash set. Ordered. Cheers for the heads-up, Paul.

  21. Ralph says:

    Cheers Paul
    I hadn’t bothered with the London Calling set because of the price but that’s much more like it

  22. Mark S says:

    Awesome on The Clash deal. Had this in wish list since back at prerelease time. I think that’s a really good price now. Bought

  23. Dogfacedboy says:

    Bjork’s store having a 30% off sale today with plenty of Biophilia onwards vinyl included. The triple live album with a DVD is particularly tasty

  24. Robert Laversuch says:

    Hi had this on pre order so didn’t get the good from now but at least got a copy. Despite some apparent shortcomings that we were made aware by some super fans I am well pleased with the set – countless hours of good quality stuff to get through and if you are wavering there can’t be that many sets left, maybe go watch the unboxing vid and, always assuming you have some connection with Donna you will not be disappointed – especially those early albums that predate the Euro disco feel etc are wonderful to behold

  25. Tim-Meh says:

    Hi Paul,

    Could I maybe highlight the following album that’s being issued to raise funds for the NHS. Worth buying not just for the good cause but to get hold of the Wolf Alice cover.

  26. Max says:

    Amazing – thank you. Ordered DONNA SUMMER and it arrived within a day.
