  4. Mike M says:

    Script for a Jesters Tear SDE been dispatched, arriving tomorrow. Showing back in stock at Amazon albeit at a higher price. Looks like everyone’s order will be fulfilled.

    • SimonP2 says:

      Just received an email from Amazon stating Marillion Script will arrive 22nd July. You can still actually order it from Amazon UK at £22 – still showing as temporarily out of stock. The ones on Amazon now are third party sellers

  5. PaulH says:

    If you haven’t already, check out vinyl summer sale at udiscovermusic – link –
    There are some truly amazing vinyl bargains- too many to list here.

  6. george connolly says:

    just bought off amazon uk the who my generation 5cd box set for £28. I believe there’s 6 copies left. hurry if you’re interested. I’ve seen it listed at £100+.

  7. Larry Davis says:

    Have to add, my purchase of SOTT didn’t go through all the way initially…the whole translating thing…lucky I then saw the discount code, which brought it down further to 106 Euros, which is almost a $50 savings…and then it went through…thanks again Dave Barron!! But I gotta add, there is a new massive Little Steven box out on July 31, 10CD/3DVD, only through the UDiscover store…covers all his earlier 80s/90s side work apart from his stuff with Springsteen, acting, and his Sirius XM work as curator, DJ & head of “Underground Garage” & “Outlaw Country”…I will be ordering it close to the 31st cuz with tax & all, it’s just under $200, even with free US shipping…

  8. Beechlander says:

    Finally bit on Conversation’s £60 new from resellers as well as the Amazon price, thanks for the alert. Does anyone know if this comes up as Autorip on Amazon post-purchase?

    • KevinK says:

      It should include Autorip – if you bought it from Amazon rather than one of the resellers.

    • JohnM says:

      Yes, Autorip if blought from Amazon – and further £5 discount if you qualify (see Amazon landing page) – just snapped it up for £56.60 (Amazon price currently £61.60 before discount).

      • Beechlander says:

        Thanks both, I bought it directly from Amazon and all tracks have now appeared on Amazon Music – perfect.

  9. Kauwgompie says:

    Now that the entire community shifted their Sign Of The Times orders to Amazon Italy, it’s sold out there….

  10. CJ Feeney says:

    Prince SOTT now unavailable at Amazon it.

  11. Richard Fisher says:

    Creedence Clearwater Revival vinyl boxset now £109 at Amazon UK

  12. Graham LUSTY says:

    You guys are lucky in Europe to get the Prince at a good price. In Australia it is retailing for $320.00 (AU$). I’m getting mine thru for around $200(AU$)

  13. Larry Davis says:

    Thanks to Dave Barron, I switched my Prince SOTT order from Amazon US to Italy and saved almost $40!! Normally I would not have switched & just left it cuz of shipping costs, but it is a big savings & I will wait longer for the arrival…as for the Pilot, went with the US price, which with shipping is $35, cool…as for the AOB box, ordered mine from the SDE shop way back when…will be bundled with the booklets of both TFF & new Macca, so I hope it doesn’t take too long Paul…also ordered the new Sparks…today at Target (first time there in almost 4 months, yikes), along with some new clothes, I bought the new Jimmy Buffett & Target exclusives of latest by Norah Jones & the 1975, see how those are, and just received new Jessie Ware (excellent), Haim (pretty great but not signed), new Canadian alt-country girl on Columbia Tennile Townes & 2009 release by brilliant Boston area Americana/powerpop/garagepunk girl Sarah Borges, “The Stars Are Out”…bought it used & the thing was signed both by Sarah but also her band, the Broken Singles…so that was a nice surprise…

  14. Ken says:

    The discount code still seems to be working for me as of 11.50 pm today. Covered the shipping costs very nicely. Thanks Paul!

  15. David Barron says:

    With VAT subtracted, even with shipping costs to the U.S., this still comes in at $125, which is $35 less than the price on Amazon US. US price is now $159.95 plus sales tax. So thanks.

  16. 2wicky says:

    Thanks for this amazing deal on the Prince box set – the discount code ‘SCONTO5EUR’ is still working as of just now.
    I also found a good deal in ‘The K Box (Box)’ of Peter Hammill, this box set had been out of print for a few months but a few copies (around 5) appear on and amazon it – the latter turned out to be 5 Euros cheaper (at € 68.61) so I ordered it together with the Prince box set.

  17. Harcourt Fenton Mudd says:

    Prince SOTT 8cd/1dvd set

    Colour you peach and black!
    Colour me taken aback!
    I think I wan’ cha!

    oh yes! even I have to buy this from amazon Italy at £102 to have it forever in my life!

    . . .Whenever I have ordered from Amazon Italy or Germany in the past it has come from a UK warehouse in Scotland (I am in England).

    This will be my most expensive singular music related purchase ….. but after waiting and waiting for the 1999 set to “just go down a few more £”, only to sell out and double in price overnight, I had to get this or I know I would be kicking myself sometime around the second half of September!

  18. Shane says:

    Cancelled my order made on day of SDE publication so I could apply the discount, which worked now 21.00 02.07.2020.

  19. Alain Brenez says:

    Amazon IT code worked for me on the Prince CD box set. € 111 incl shipping.

  20. graeme ewan says:

    Got the Prince from Italy Amazon. Wonder if it will show the “Dunfermline” Amazon hub address this time when i receive it, (I live in Scotland).Has happened more than once and received the day after release, if not day of release so I don’t know what that’s all about but fair enough!

  21. Kauwgompie says:

    Thanks Paul! I had ordered three CD boxes from Amazon Canada but I calculated everything, converted Canadian Dollars to Euros, including shipping etc and I’m saving 35 Euros when ordering from Italy. So I canceled my Canadian order and “went Italian”. I still have the vinyl box and colored vinyl ordered from Amazon Canada as that is the cheapest at the moment. So for US residents, that is the way to go.
    I’m going all out on this reissue. It’s the holy grail of reissues and my all time favorite album. I was also lucky enough to buy the singles box. By the way, I’m not intending to re-sell these box sets. I just need to know I have a spare one if something happens. I know it’s crazy but this album means a lot to me.
    P.S., the UK price came down from 199 Pounds to a more “normal” 159 Pounds. The price comparison widget is not updating for me. Not sure if that is an issue on my end or with you Paul.

  22. Steve Peatchey says:

    It’s actually gone up to £159.90 on Amazon UK at the moment!!

  23. stephen king says:

    Nice! Ordered SOTT from Italy with the 5 euro discount code and saved myself £45 cancelling the Amazon UK order. And then spent £5 of that on a blue Who single from Sound of Vinyl. I’d buy all you bargain spotters a drink but I suspect that would more than wipe out the savings and we’d have to sit at least 2 metres apart to enjoy said refreshment anyway.

  24. Fredpstman says:

    Many thanks for the Prince deal Paul,cancelled my UK order for the Italian one… Sono molto felice.

  25. Yann says:

    Amazing deal alert, Paul.

    Cancelled my order on & grabbed this italian deal. 37 EUR saved, thank you !

  26. Xavier says:

    Don’t know how you did to get this price, I tried the SCONTO5EUR, but it did not work, I am to France at more than 115 euros.

  27. William K says:

    Sorry Paul! With thanks to google translate I’ve just discovered that Amazon Italy do have a pre-order price guarantee! Apologies for any inconvenience.

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      No problem. Thanks for confirming.

    • Klaus says:

      @William K.:

      If this question rises up again you can always check at your “Open Orders”-page on Amazon, with pre-ordered stuff they should always show you the current amount they’ll debit you when the item is being shipped to you.

      And btw: AFAIK all the amazon-sites worldwide have the pre-order guarantee on music, films and games.

  28. William K says:

    Hi Paul,
    Do you know if Amazon Italy have a pre-order lowest price guarantee? I bought the Prince 8CD/DVD from them on the 25th of June so not sure if I should cancel & re-order.

  29. Colin MacKenzie says:

    Good sale newly commenced at Sound of Vinyl – picked up a few items there this morning!*/Summer-Sale-2020/

    • Nik Yeomans says:

      The Amy MacDonald double vinyl Woman Of The World box set with extra CD is good value at £15. Cost more than that to post it out to the EU :)

      • Colin MacKenzie says:

        It’s one of the ones I bought! thought the Who’s Next triple LP set at £9 was pretty decent as well so picked it up. The Mott reissues at £12 are the lowest I’ve seen them at.

    • CJ Feeney says:

      Triple LP of Who’s Next for £9.00!!! Even though it’s a flawed reissue, you would have to get a copy at that price.

      • Richard Fisher says:

        Why is it flawed please? I just ordered a copy. Is it because the original album is supplemented by a couple of additional tracks on side 2 of the first disc or is the mixing not right?

        • Wayne C says:

          It says on the Sound of Vinyl that the “Who’s Next“ Triple album isn’t even released yet?, whether it is or not who knows. If it hasn’t been reissued yet how can’t anyone know if it’s flawed?. At £9 you can’t complain surely?. It saves me getting my A1/B1 of it on Track out to play – so £9 is fine by me. Plus I haven’t heard the live concert on sides 4/5/6 can’t wait.

        • Beechlander says:

          If it’s anything like the copy I got recently the sound is flat – not a very satisfying listen to be honest. However – if you haven’t already got it in your collection and for a triple-disc at that price it’s a steal.

    • Gary Hunter says:

      Thanks for the link Colin for Sound Of Vinyl, bagged the 2 X 180gm Vinyl of U2’s latest album.

  30. HS says:

    Thanks a lot, I cancelled my Amazon UK order and ordered from Italy instead. With the discount code it came down to 98 EUR (incl shipping).

  31. Tom m hans says:

    For US buyers of SOTT SDE: has a great deal, too. Translates into $122 including shipping. Peace.

  32. nick says:

    if you wanna keep it within UK, Wat Records have some half decent prices for all of the Prince items…

  33. Gerbrand says:

    Also the Sign O The Times movie reissue 2BR/2dvd in cheaper mediabook format for €62 on

    • Gerbrand says:

      Forget my previous comment. The mediabook version is available cheaper elsewhere (around €40). I just didn’t know it existed in this book-format. The 12”x12” version is still available, but for €12o almost twice the original price.

    • Andreas says:

      this is available for less than 39 EURO at amazon Germany!

  34. Alan says:

    Italian Prince deal ordered. Will leave the UK order in place just in case they decide to half the current price. More in live with the expected price round about £100

  35. nick spencer says:

    The Amazon Italy site also lists the release date as 18th September??

  36. Danny says:

    Cancelled my Amazon UK order (SDE had sold out) and nabbed the Italian, 40 quid saved thanks Paul!

  37. Alan M says:

    I’m all for a bargain but how about supporting the UK’s struggling and dwindling indie stores? We’ll all end up working on zero hours contracts in Amazon warehouses at this rate :(

    • John M says:

      Totally agree!

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      I can’t believe there are any UK indie stores with any stock left. The allocations were tiny. I run a UK indie store, don’t forget :)

    • Mike M says:

      Not sorry Alan cos I can’t afford to throw another £65 at my local indie store to support them with this purchase. Money is tight for me right now.

      • Alan M says:

        The future impact of this way of buying will only be negative. We’ll all be paid slaves to The Man.

        The heart of rock n roll is dying, struggling to be kept alive by the likes of Sleaford Mods.

        • Mike M says:

          Some people’s livelihood is “wage dependant” and this “wage slave” just saved himself £65, so that’s more money to be used elsewhere in the household. Therefore from my point of view there’s no negatives and I will still continue to support my local indie store with other purchases. Don’t even think your mate Jason Williamson would argue over this one, he’s quite well versed in the hardships of the working class.

    • CJ Feeney says:

      I use my local store for most purchases, often paying a premium of up to £5 for some box sets, but honestly, I’m not going to pay a £50 premium.

  38. Mike M says:

    Superb price mate, cheers

  39. James Foran says:

    The advantage of being on furlough is you have time to check emails and snap up an SDE alert as they come in – thanks!

  40. Nick says:

    Just grabbed the amazon Italy deal on sign o the times works out around £102 at current conversion.

  41. Sean Lawler says:

    Just bagged the Prince deal for €114 shipped from Italy to the UK !!! Bargain…thanks Paul :)

    • CJ Feeney says:

      Me too.

      It’s a long time since I was willing to spend over £100 on a single album SEE, but thus was too good to resist.

  42. Dr. Pugh says:

    Is it complicated to order from Amazon Italy and ship to the UK?

  43. Mr TW Ricketts says:

    Just got the Prince SOT at €113 – nice saving

  44. Rob van de Griend says:

    The Prince Box is now 113 euro’s on ? That seems to be a real bargain?

  45. Richard John says:

    And ordered. I was humming and hawing about getting Sign O The Times at £140, but 113 euros including shipping to the UK is a bit of a no brainer. Thanks for the top off Paul!

  46. Ryk says:


    The Amazon IT site currently says €113, which is about £102 – a fabulous price!

    (Unfortunately for me it doesn’t ship to NZ)

  47. Andreas says:

    even lower price now! 113,24 € And use the SCONTO5EUR coupon!

    • Klaus says:


      Thanks man,

      using the coupon and because of Italy’s 22% VAT coming down to the 16% we currently have in Germany brought the price farther down for me: Even with p&p it was only around €107.

      That’s a cool 54€ less than the current pre-order price on

      And 2 make things even better this seems to be released in Italy a week earlier than elsewhere (18 September)

  48. Jon. says:

    I couldn’t get the GIFT05 code to work, but on the plus side it only appears to be charging me 116€ upon checkout!

  49. Regina says:

    Anyone know if this comes with a download code? Thanks.

  50. MichaelM says:

    Just ordered, and got the £5 off too. Pity its not the coveted silver viny edition. But its a great way to get vinyl versions of songs long out of print and commanding extortionate prices 2nd hand.

    • Trash says:

      Would love to know how the £5 off worked.
      I tried it (this morning) and was told it couldn’t be used.

      Ordered it anyway – couldn’t decide (and I’m still a bit undecided) but I love Factory in general and some of the tracks sound as quite interesting…

  51. Alan says:

    Got the Factory box, so cheers – and for only £54.99 thanks to Darren with the £5 off Amazon gift code, for which also thanks.

    Plus the new Haim signed CD too. FYI, the previous Haim CD Something To Tell You is also on sale signed by the band at only £5.99 on Recordstore, so you can get two signed Haim CDs for £10.98!

  52. Martin says:

    Great picked up this time cheers Paul

  53. Dennis says:

    From today (1st July) on until 31st December VAT in Germany is reduced from 19% down to 16% – meaning a few things could be slightly cheaper on (+ other German retailers as well).

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      Interesting… thanks!

    • Klaus says:

      It also means that customers in Germany who buy from amazon-websites outside of Germany will pay slightly less for their goods as Amazon always takes the VAT-percentage that is valid at the time of purchase in the buyers country.
      I’m unaware though if other shops handle this the same way.

  54. Mark Yon says:

    Paul: the Essential Human League 3-CD set is now down to £4.30 at Amazon UK. Amazingly low price!

    • Simon Broch says:


      The new, critically praised, Haim album, women in music pt 111 is on promotion on Amazon UK. Amazingly you can buy a signed CD version for just £4.99 at the moment.. I don’t expect stocks will last long!


      • Trapdoor says:

        Thanks Simon, picked up this bargain earlier; like the Fur’s latest without this site many of us would miss these things. As an aside I wonder how many of these albums are signed before fatigue sets in by the artists; the Fur’s one went very quick…

    • Mike Williams says:

      Thanks Mark Yon for the 3-CD Human League info – super cheap to mail to the USA and it’s not available here!

  55. Larry Davis says:

    Cool item & price but shipping is too high at 28 pounds, no thanks…like what happened with the Motown box deal…had already ordered so I let it go…not this time….maybe one day…

  56. thurston.m says:

    Thanks a lot, had this in my basket with the Joy Division EPs for some time!!

  57. Dan says:

    “…and includes sleeve notes written by Paul Morley.”

    That’s not a selling point, surely??

  58. Darren says:

    Thanks Paul snapped this deal up. I don’t know if it works for everyone but got a further £5 off by entering GIFT05 in the promo box….

  59. Richard Fisher says:

    Signed cd version of Haim’s latest album now just £4.99 at Amazon UK.

  60. CosmoCastanza says:

    Many thanks Paul for letting us know about this great deal.Snapped it up.

  61. David Maxwell-McNulty says:

    Cheers, Paul! Got it!

  62. SeanL says:

    Thanks Paul

  63. AM says:

    I wonder if it will be reduced again

  64. Donal O'Connell says:

    Bagged – thanks Paul

  65. gary oliver says:

    also got it, cheers Paul

  66. Jonathan Astley says:

    Would you believe I was listening to “English Black Boys” by Xodue (track 9 side 1) when the alert came through, so naturally I took this as an omen to buy the vinyl copy. In any case the last time I looked at buying this on vinyl it was over £100 so to get it for £59.99 is a steal with mega thanks to Paul.

  67. Alan Anderson says:

    Brilliant deal. Bought with Prime also,…….result. Cheers Paul.

  68. John Tollervey says:

    Extra £1 off with amazon’s ‘no rush delivery’ option….

  69. Thanks Paul. Ordered it.

  70. Wayne Olsen says:

    27 pounds to mail to New Jersey. waaaaaa

    • ShawnC says:

      Yeah Wayne – shipping is now prohibitively expensive on everything on here in the States. Hope it changes.

      • Mike says:

        It won’t sadly. From 1st July the UPU have upped their prices so it’s really expensive to ship anything other than a single CD to the states.

        • Derek Langsford says:

          It seems like multi-disc orders are cheaper per disc than single CDs.

          Single CD – Price: £6.10 + £10.71 delivery
          3 CD set Price: £23.80 + £12.97 delivery
          33 CD box Price: £236.47 + £27.69 delivery

          All used to be £3.08 delivery with less than £1 per additional item

          Amazon UK still say “We are delivering to your region with limited shipping options. Please expect extended delivery time.” which I take to be FedEx, UPS, or DHL .

          But it that reflects the new, permanent, postage prices it will cause me to order much more strategically (bundle orders) and to order less.

  71. Marc Kieser says:

    Pink Floyd – The Later Years – Box Set 299,– euro at Amazon NL and

  72. Richard Anderson says:

    On another no brainer Haim’s new album Women in music part 3 is only £4.99 for the signed edition cd on Amazon UK. Limit of 3 per customer.

  73. Dave says:

    Cheers Paul, snapped this one up

  74. davemcgonigle says:

    My goodness…did i actually catch an SDE deal?!! Fingers crossed…

  75. Colin says:

    Bagged it this time!
    Thank you.

  76. Roger Nelson says:

    Fleetwood Mac Don’t Stop 3cd only 5.99 at Morris ons (at least in Preston)

  77. Leemer says:

    Great deal, but with shipping & handling charges from Amazon UK, it’s nearly just as inexpensive to buy at if you are in the USA.

    • Matt S says:

      Yeah, the new shipping rates have really killed these deals in the US. Oh well, it was nice while it lasted.

  78. Andrew Barnett says:

    Got it this time! thanks Paul
