    Looking forward to Elvis. The ‘Legacy Edition’ sets have been great value.

    The Starship set is a reissue. I have owned it for several years.

  3. Jim says:

    Pleasantly surprised to find a 24/96 stereo version of the album on the DVD

    Well Dave Stewart would have deserved a bonus Disc edition… If I remember well, I thought this one was better than the first “Spiritual Cowboy” album… Anyway we still wait for Eurythmics & Related complete expanded albums ….

    I’m not a Sabbath fan myself, but you have the wrong link for ‘UK Order: Paranoid (blue vinyl)’ :-)

    That New Gold Dream (blu-ray audio) is a total rip off at £18.99 when you consider the amount of space there is on those discs and all you get is the basic album. At least Yes and XTC have the right idea about filling these up.

    Also out the new Dinosaur Jr album.

    the current amazon price for the Sabbath coloured reissues is disgusting £26.99
