America / Live at the Palladium (deluxe box)

This 2CD+DVD set features America‘s 2018 performance at London’s Palladium. The DVD is region-free/NTSC and while this comes with a signed certificate and a 24-page, “full colour” book (and replica backstage pass) it seems ridiculously pricey for what you get.

    I’ll pile on the America Live price. What the heck? Grossly overpriced. $25 seems like a fair price. It’s currently going for over a hundred bucks on Amazon (US). I’d feel ripped off at half that.

    Godley and Creme’s “Consequences”… this Friday, August 9… on Caroline (CAROLR085CD)! This is from the Rough Trade website: “This version mastered by Andy Pearce and overseen by Godley and Creme and is available in full on CD for the first-time outside Japan contains the original album as well as the music excerpts from the album and for the first time on CD the promotional edit album. The album set housed in a clamshell box contains expanded artwork and notes by Mojo’s Daryl Easlea who has spoken to both participants about the making and production of the album.”

      I posted about this on Monday but Paul must have missed it. Already ordered and will complement the Body Of Work box.

      Also ordered the latest Residents deluxe of “God In 3 Persons” which is out on Friday. Not everyone’s cup of tea, I understand, but their pREServed reissue campaign has been excellent, presenting a wealth of archive material

    If anyone’s interested, Bandcamp just posted a limited edition CD release for Ministry’s “Chicago 1982” Recorded Live At On Broadway – Chicago, IL. 5/18/1982. The previous May 2019 vinyl version sold out quickly (on release day I think). I just received an email this morning from Bandcamp with the announcement [still available at this time].

    The Blinded By The Light Soundtrack is out this week, with some unreleased Bruce!

    Well that was a fairly easy “buy” decision for me via Amazon UK regarding the Jefferson Airplane release – another essential recording for us older folks. Thanks for the early heads up on this.

  6. TheProgster says:

    Amazon rip off alert for the America box set…It’s £75 on America’s website through musicglue then add postage of £6 comes to grand total of £81 so still £21 cheaper than amazon.

  7. H says:

    Absolutely ludicrous price for the America set, considering its following hard on the heels of the 50th anniversary stuff and Capitol years reissues.
    As a fan I can’t see who would be mad enough to pay that much for essentially 3 disc live album – it would still be overpriced at a quarter of the cost.
    If no one buys it perhaps it will send a message to the corporate greed of the record companies – they need to take a look at the Jethro Tull stuff to see how it should be done.
    PS noticed your cryptic tease Paul on the weekly review of rumoured forthcoming sets – what have we got to look forward to ?

  8. Gisabun says:

    I find most of these box sets with replica crap overpriced. Do people really care about a replica backstage pass or a signed certificate [why whom?].
    Music and DVDs/BRs. Fine. Booklet dine. Book – maybe.

    • Peter Muscutt says:

      But the Pink Floyd marbles though!? Lol. Has anyone done a poll to find the most pointless deluxe box set item? The marbles don’t count, seeing as they’ve pretty much set the benchmark. I’d go for the Dawn of the Dead soundtrack box set door hanger…I thought stuff like that only got given away with kid’s annuals!

    Paul, do we know if all the initial copies of the Matthew Sweet Kimi Ga Suki are Green Vinyl or is that an Indies only thing please?

    Jeff Tweedy’s two CD set Warm / Warmer is also released this week:

    • Paul E. says:

      @RJS – good call out. I purchased the CD set last week at wilcostore.com as, I believe, that’s the only place to get the vinyl only track “Drawing From Memory (Charlie)” as a download. I could be wrong but either way I can confirm if you order it from the Wilco store you will get an emailed link/order acknowledgement to download the track in FLAC or MP3 format(s).

      • RJS says:

        Cheers, I wasn’t aware of that anomaly. The track is available in MP3 format from most download outlets. It costs 99p in the UK from both Google and Amazon.
