    Grazie Paul, got the Lou Reed CD box I have been waiting for ages to get for £78.64 delivered to the UK from Amazon Italy. Best stop there though as apparently other people want Xmas presents from me too!

  6. GentleRabbit says:

    Some great news for Australian box-set tragics – Amazon have reversed their decision to block Australians from their international sites.

    They have done the right thing and caved to what I assume must have been a great deal of public pressure. Hurrah!

    Apologies for being off-subject, Paul.

    • gwynogue says:

      All the articles I read say international sites, but I’ve tried to order Yazoo’s “Three Pieces” and Lulu’s “Decade” from UK and still get blocked. So it only seems to be the US site at the moment (3rd parties excluded), but hopefully others will soon follow.

  7. Steve F says:

    Lou Reed vinyl now gone. If you see it come back, please let me know!

  8. Sami says:

  9. Schu says:

    Thanks Paul for the Black Friday deals and thanks Roland for the S-MC’s suggestions!

  10. Dennis says:

    Not 100% Black Friday deals but Swedish mailorder has a few nice deals at the moment…
    R.E.M. – At the BBC – 8CD+DVD for 499 SEK (approx. 48,50 EUR / 43,20 UKP)

    Per Gessle – Per Gessle Archives – 10CD+LP 399 SEK (approx. 38,80 EUR / 34,60 UKP)

  11. Tony O says:

    best i could get down to on the all things must pass is £43.30 which includes postage and import fees, still cheap but could not get to the £31, never mind, thanks for the heads up

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      £31 is the rough Sterling equivalent to the dollar price, it wasn’t supposed to include postage etc. Come to that the £91 UK price doesn’t include postage either (unless you are a prime member).

      • StevieB says:

        As it’s over £20 it should be free postage if you’re in the UK whether you’re a Prime member or not buy that £97 is absolutely scandalous, and I think it’s always been around that since released in February 2017..

  12. Thilo says:

    The R.E.M.Out Of Time Set (3CD 1 BluRay) is only 29,99€ at JPC

  13. Ralph says:

    £45.40 to ship All Things Must Pass but I could never afford it when I was a lad so I’m well chuffed

  14. Roland says:

    For everybody who missed out on the Stereo MC’s deal. This box is available for €33 at Dodax (S&H included) or for €30 (+ S&H) at

  15. Chris says:

    Stereo MCs deal appears to be up to 42.5 Euro now.

  16. Argh! says:

    That new Rubellan Remasters reissue label is also having a Black Friday sale on all of their reissues, including that recent Visage expanded CD reissue. It’s only on Friday but it looks like it’s going to be all of their CD’s for less than $10.

    • Derek Langsford says:

      Yes, argh indeed! I just bought the Visage two weeks ago, and excellent it is too. They should have got the Soft Cell job too which I will never stop complaining about.

      • Argh! says:

        Indeed! That Soft Cell box set had absolutely no dynamic range, so loud and painful. And it only took about 10 weeks to get my replacement DVD. A mess all the way around. I’m sure Rubellan would have made it shine.

  17. Alan Blevin says:

    Only American Amazon is going to be unblocked for Australia.Another Amazon fail.Only a small percentage of my Amazon purchases of the last few years had been from America.

  18. Jono says:

    Thanks -grabbed the Lou Reed vinyl set. Tempted by the CD set too, but must behave.

  19. Alan Blevin says:

    Great news Paul.Amazon has back flipped!Australian customers can now access all international Amazon sites.In an announcements Amazon says they “have listened to customer feedback”.

  20. gootsy says:

    Jumped on the Lou Reed box set. Didn’t plan to buy anything else this month, but hey at this price, 10€ per Lp P&P included, I couldn’t resist ! A huge thanks !!!!!

  21. Schu says:

    Damn! MC’s gone!

  22. Owen Davies says:

    Also a good deal at Amazon US for George Harrison All Things Must Pass vinyl – $39.62 with a further $2.59 off at checkout:

  23. Barry says:

    Just had a mail to say Springsteen is offering 50% of any of his concert downloads back to 1975. Not a physical product and will probably result in a lifetime ban from SDE but thought it might be of use to someone :)

  24. brownthursday says:

    …. for at least that lou reed box set – it’s not a “black friday deal” – the price has been like that for a while.
    black friday is bad enough as it is without falsely adding to the spectacle.

  25. Colin MacKenzie says:

    Not a deal as such but this Black Friday release seems to be low profile – a four LP version of the Byrds Sweetheart of the Rodeo which features a lot of Gram Parsons vocals/ alternative takes not to my knowledge previously available on vinyl. Coda Records in Edinburgh ( excellent store) had it in their window today and unlike the spring RSD you can reserve items. Price wasn’t too bad at around £45. Limited to either 1,000 or 2,000 copies.

  26. Chris says:

    I’m hoping there will be a Black Friday Beatles Sde White Album deal.

  27. Jay says:

    Paul – that Pretenders vinyl box (Amazon B00UMS86ME) is quite cheap at Amazon Italy as well

  28. Marcus says:

    Ridiculous price for the Stereo MC’s box. How could I resist? Thanks, Paul!

  29. Ole says:

    Everybody should buy the Stereo MC‘s box. It’s a steal!!! FANTASTIC BOX SET!
