  2. Mark S says:

    I bought the Bowie Glasto CD for £4 and after listening to it ended up buying it on vinyl for £29.99.

    Excellent set and great sound, just wished he’d played Modern Love

  3. Neil says:

    Ordered Permanent Waves from Amazon DE yesterday and it arrived today that’s service for you. I do have a sneaky feeling it came from Dunfermline though.

    Hello, maybe any of guys you can help me out, please. Sorry for using this thread but it seems the most visited and current. Is there any e-mail I can contact in Polydor/Universal to get a replacement sleeve for the LP inside Yello Collectors Box? It was damaged on the side (inside the hard box). I bought it at Dussmanm Germany, obviously they don’t have any more box sets or replacements. I wrote to a couple of Universal e-mails with no success. Instead they offered me replacement discs for Richard & Linda Thompson – Hard Luck Stories which I never bought

    I got the Dire Straits CD Box delivered on Friday from Amazon, but noticed in my local Tesco (Coulby Newham) at the weekend it was only £15.

  7. Arnold Toye says:

    I cant find lifelines at £7.70 on amazon .has that offer gone ??.

  8. Gareth says:

    Got the Dire Straits vinyl box set from today who are selling it for £95. Not bad considering it’s only been out again since Friday.

    • Adam says:

      Damn that’s tempting, especially so soon after release. I feel like I can only buy the John Lennon 4LP set or this until next month. Decisions decisions.

      • Gareth says:

        Arrived today with no box! Just an address label stuck to the cellophane. The wrapping was hanging off and box was marked. Needless to say I’ve ordered a replacement. Never had this happen before and hope it won’t happen again.

  9. Wayne Olsen says:

    Target is running a Buy 2 Get 1 free sale. Includes new releases. Ordered Metrobolist, Yes Royal Affair, and exclusive Carpenters 1969-1973 vinyl.

  10. Mark R says:

    Just ordered the Bowie cd. £5.90 inc postage. Still waiting for the estate to issue a proper standalone release of theBBC Theatre show though!

    • Andrew Haldane says:

      I used to have the limited edition 4 disc Bowie at the Beeb which included that show….somebody stole it during a house party

  13. Oskar says:

    David Bowie – Glastonbury 2CD in amazon Uk at 3,72€ Glastonbury 2000 [2CD]

    • Macca says:

      Currently £4.64 (£5.90 posted) still great value

    • Branny says:

      Cheers Oskar and Paul. Got it for £4.64. Still not to be sniffed at. I was still hammering the Loving the alien box set when Glasto 2000 was released so held off buying. I’ve not been in my local HMV for a browse much in the last 6 months ( used to be a couple of times per week) so it had dropped off the radar. Currently filling my boots with box sets (Prince SOTT, TFF SOL and Vienna) as I’m on my 3rd bout of self isolation so this is a welcome purchase.

  14. Brian says:

    I think i got the last lifelines.. thanks!

  15. Steen says:

    @Richard Anderson: where is that banner? Can’t seem to find it… :-(

  16. wparkermusic says:

    That Prince deal didn’t last very long lol

  17. Barry says:

    Not a music deal, as such, but Ben Folds’ novel/autobiography (“A Dream About Lightning Bugs: A Life of Music and Cheap Lessons”) is currently 99p on Kindle.

  18. Martyn Yeatman says:

    Permanent Waves is £9.09 on MusicMagpie.

  19. hendry doran says:

    Tug of War has hovered around this price for the last few weeks but still represents a good deal.

    I have a gut feeling it might go lower in the next few days when Amazon Prime days start

  20. The Music Bubble says:

    That 1999 had been £9 for weeks…

    Until you posted this and now its up to £12.35!

    Love From The Planet Gong CD box for €60 on Amazon Italy.

  22. andrew davis says:

    I’m in for the A-ha excellent price!

  23. Alan B says:

    I see the Recordstore exclusive triple gold vinyl version of the Best of Bond is now available again to pre order. It followed the now well used Recordstore marketing plan of announcing a “very limited” exclusive release and when you click on the link you get the number of units available which counts down quickly from a starting point of a few hundred. It quickly sells out and in a couple of weeks time more copies become available but this time without a stock indicator and can be easily preordered for weeks on end. It is becoming tiresome now.

    Just about every one of their exclusives sell out only for more stock to be made available shortly afterwards. All except one. The coloured vinyl version of the new Style Council compilation which I missed out on. I had been given a 15% discount off my next order code due to my Doves new album not being available on release date from them. Unfortunately the code only took 15% off the postage cost and not the value of the order and I was waiting on them getting back to me about the mistake and I was going to use it on the Style Council pre order. When they got back to me (quite quickly) it had just sold out. Turned out I couldn’t use it anyway. They unilaterally decided to refund the 15% of my signed Doves CD order. Funnily enough the didn’t apply it to the Doves boxset bundle I ordered with them (signed CD had to be ordered separately) So the one time I miss out on a limited edition is the only time extra copies don’t get made available.

    • Chris says:

      It’s Universal once again being the biggest con-artists the music industry has ever seen. You were lucky to get a fairly quick response. My last issue with Digital stores had me waiting 5 weeks for a reply.

      • hendry doran says:

        I might be one of the lucky ones. Any queries/cancellations have always been addressed within 2/3 working days.

        My only gripe is that they are quite expensive

      • kid992 says:

        That reminds me I must e mail them again about my corrected copy of John Lennon rock n roll from 2017

      • Chris says:

        How many online stores do universal music have? I had dealings with udiscover music a couple of years ago who where truly shocking to deal with

    • Andy says:

      Sound of Vinyl also has the gold version of the Bond release for preorder.

    • Allan Pennicard says:

      Universal music or the sound of vinyl or recordstore or zoom should be reported to trading standards and i am surprised Paul does not comment on this?

    • Mike Greene says:

      I wonder if the Misleading Actions in Part 2 of the Unfair Trading Regulations 2008 might apply… perhaps one of our readers is schooled in law and can say if this behaviour we keep seeing is illegal. Maybe the SDE community might take on a crusade!

      Prohibition of unfair commercial practices
      3.—(1) Unfair commercial practices are prohibited.

      (4) A commercial practice is unfair if—

      (a)it is a misleading action under the provisions of regulation 5;

      Misleading actions
      5.—(1) A commercial practice is a misleading action if it satisfies the conditions in either paragraph (2) or paragraph (3).
      (2) A commercial practice satisfies the conditions of this paragraph—
      (a)if it contains false information and is therefore untruthful in relation to any of the matters in paragraph (4) or if it or its overall presentation in any way deceives or is likely to deceive the average consumer in relation to any of the matters in that paragraph, even if the information is factually correct; and
      (b)it causes or is likely to cause the average consumer to take a transactional decision he would not have taken otherwise.

      • Caroline says:

        I’m not a lawyer but I have had to deal with credit card disputes raised on these grounds and similar so I know a bit about this.

        The law is intended to ensure that what you purchase is as described by the merchant. A merchant being “sold out” of an item and then being allocated additional stock closer to (or after) the release date is not material to the actual goods – you receive the same item if you buy it just before the initial “Out Of Stock” sign goes up as you do when it becomes available again. If a merchant claims the items comes in an edition of 500 in a wooden box, is on white vinyl and is personally signed by the artist and what you receive is black vinyl in a cardboard pizza box with a printed signature emblazoned with “No. 2681 of 4000” and the merchant goes “yeah, we made a few changes, no refunds!”, this is misleading. But “You said you were out of stock!” “Yeah, we were allocated some more stock because the first lot went so fast” is not misleading. You paid for the 3LP gold vinyl “Best Of Bond”. That’s what you got. Case closed.

        Also, the wording of the law is “the average consumer”. You would have a very hard time showing that “the average consumer” would decline to buy a vinyl record if it turned out that the record label’s definition of “limited edition” didn’t match theirs when either no numbers have been stated or the item is available from multiple outlets (or both). The “average consumer” wants what they pay for to match the description of the goods given when the purchase was made.

        Also, go forwards a few steps: labels constantly receive returns from distributors – a law that prevented them from selling those items because it had previously been declared “sold out” would frustrate labels, customers and artists alike.

  24. Richard Anderson says:

    Don’t know if it is available to everyone but there is a banner on that gives you £10 off your order if you click on the link and set your Mastercard as your default card. You must buy something sold or fulfilled by amazon on your Mastercard. Just got the Dire Straits Box Set for £6.99 which is great.
