Eric Clapton’s Life in 12-Bars 4LP vinyl set now available for pre-order

The just announced Eric Clapton set Life in 12 Bars is now available to pre-order as a 4LP vinyl package, in some territories.

You can read all about the release on this post, but as you can see below, while there is no UK pre-order at present, the Italian discounted price of just under £60 isn’t bad, and is at least in line with the price-tags in North America and Canada. The UK 2CD price remains unbeatable!

It’s worth noting that while the 2CD edition is out on 8 June, the 4LP vinyl package won’t ship until 20 July 2018.

One response to Eric Clapton’s Life in 12-Bars 4LP vinyl set now available for pre-order

  1. Alan Wilson says:

    This one has thrown up a bit of a curve ball in terms of best price with Amazon Japan taking an early lead.

    I’ve just placed my order and its only around £40 all in including shipping and taxes pre-paid.

    Just me guessing at this point, but you’ll be hard pushed to beat a better pre-order price than that.
