i wonder what the chances are for orders being fulfilled for those of us that got an order in for the SOFT CELL box set but it went on back order…


Getting a bad feeling about the silence from Sound of Vinyl since I ordered the Killers vinyl box set at £51 a week ago… They disappeared fast at that price.


If you are a Prime music customer you should be able to download the tracks now. I can’t imagine they would try to charge you if they do cancel the order.


I missed out on it but found a link on the Hmv site for the same price (£26.99) sadly the link wasn’t allowing you to add the item to the cart so I got in touch with them and it was a fault on the site, they fixed it today.. so anyone that wants one…. Be quick!!


Paul Spurgeon

Managed to bag the softcell bargain of the year (thanks Paul) but does anyone know if these will have the fixed dvd issue that existed in release??

Emilio Lafarga Giribets

Paul, are you OK? It seems strange no updates on bargains and no weekly summary. All in all I think its been a weird BF.


Then a hearty “Happy Birthday to ya” when it gets here.


Probably because there has been no bargains to post. Amazon in particular has been absolute crap in that vein.


Just back from Sainsburys and they are doing a selected 3 CDs for £20.

I’ve picked up the new Kylie Minogue Step Back In Time 3CD inc F9 megamix and there was Now 4 double CD and new Coldplay amongst a few others.


Still holding out for:

Heaven 17’s Play To Win


Bananarama’s In A Bunch CD boxsets…

David Tomlinson

Mott The Hoople is now at £50

Matthew mcrudden

Hi there dods anyone know if sound of vinyl are still trading ?

Luis P. D.

In Spain good deals on Black Friday & CyberMonday.
3×2 in all the music (possible to mix vinyl and CDs), and 50% in Bluray and DVD, in addition to good offers that add to this 3×2:

For example:
In http://www.fnac.es
great offer in Pink Floyd Immersion Box Sets (the 3 existing ones). at € 49.99. Applying 3×2, they would be € 33.3. I have acquired the 3 ones and perfect.

In http://www.elcorteingles.es
Great prices in addition to 3×2, for example, some vinyl of Coldplay are at 15.99, so at 3×2 they would be € 10.6. Also at a good price Springsteen.

Grim Reaper

The Black Friday deals this year has been lame.


Glad I’m not the only one feeling a bit let down by the lack of more killer specials. I’m kicking myself for missing the great price on Red Rose Speedway on Amazon.fr. by apparently less than a half-hour! And I also wanted Wildlife as well. When I saw the 3 for €25 on double sets on Amazon.de, I thought, “Great! I can pick up the Zeppelin 2-CD reissues I’m missing!” And of course, despite over 2500 titles included in the sale … the Zeps aren’t among them.

Well, crossing my fingers, Cyber Monday’s a day away, there’s still a bit over three weeks until Christmas, and then of course some post-holiday deals, but yeah, not like last year when for example Amazon.de had that KILLER buy-two-box-sets of any size, get-one-of-equal-or-lesser-value free deal. That took care of my individual early ear Pink Floyds!

Aside from all that, thanks Paul for all the work you put into this and for its existence to begin with. It’s a daily-stop invaluable site; it would be really difficult to keep up with all these specials, and the pre-release details of track listings and so on are so helpful.

Basil Maher

They currently have the OMD Souvenir Box Set for only GBP 51.67 for Amazon UK’s Cyber Monday sale after you add the item to your basket and select delivery options. :-)

Unfortunately, the Soft Cell Keychains & Snowstorms Box Set is no longer GBP 27.00 as the current price is GBP 69.99. The higher price has been in effect as of early Saturday afternoon US Eastern Standard Time. :-(


Here is a handy link for all the artists included in Amazon UK Cyber Monday 30% reduction on ” best of 2019″:


John Orr

Yep, 2019 has been a very poor year for deals. Saved cash in the meantime at least.

robert tyrrell

Nazareth Loud and Proud Box set 115.90 euros Amazon Italy

robert tyrrell

Saxon Hoard 8LP set £59 amazon.co.uk

Mike M

Really disappointed with the very few deals on offer so far. Was expecting a lot more from Black Friday

The Golden Age Of The Phonograph

I agree Mike M. They should rename it Load Of Bollocks Friday.

I must admit I wasn`t expecting much for myself in the box set world, which is what I`m mostly into these days. I bought all of mine upon release this year and at good prices, for example I got the Abbey Road SE for £55 at my favourite indy store. Admittedly I get good deals from the owner because when I have clear outs of unwanted LPs I let him have them for a good price.

I wonder what Cyberdelic Monday has in Store, geddit!

Leonardo Lotti Marques

We can all safely say that 2019 was the weakest year when it comes to physical media.
I was expecting price drops on :

Wings – Wildlife (Book Edition)
Elvis – Live 1969
Marillion – Any of the boxsets
Pink Floyd – Pulse (1980 G Vinyl Reissue)

None of these came up… Sadly! Well, good for my wallet and marriage though,

Alan Fenwick


Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We? 4 Disc 25th Anniversary Edition £13.99 Amazon UK



Ordered. Thanks, Alan


Yeah, thanks! Picked this guy up as well.


Temptaition won and ordered the abbey road box…hope things turn fine


It IS rather odd that — even today, Black Friday — both Amazon US and UK seem to be sadly lacking in any major box set deals, with France and Germany appearing mainly to be the ones that are offering them. Maybe Cyber Monday? And I’m sure between now and Christmas there will be other specials. I’m still on the fence about Abbey Road on the German site, and that ends in about 30 minutes from the time I’m posting this, but I am hopeful it’ll eventually show up somewhere a bit cheaper, as the White Album has. I’m not in any rush and I don’t see that going out of print anytime soon.

I’d love to see that Doors – Soft Parade box on sale though; I’ve held off because I hate those vinyl+CD combo sets and am hoping — as happened last January with the quietly released 2-CD Waiting for the Sun — there will eventually be a 3-CD-only set of Soft Parade. But, if it was really on sale cheap, I might spring for the combo set. The inconsistency of how they’ve handled the first three reissues in this regard is frustrating.


I’m hoping for a drop on that one as well


I agree. Amazon.com didn’t have much at all. I only bought the Stone Temple Pilots “Purple” SDE but that wasn’t even marked as a Black Friday sale. They just lowered the price.
I ended up canceling my Abbey Road order from Amazon.de. I agree that you can probably scoop that up cheaper at a later point somewhere else and those Beatles boxes will never go out of print.
I bought the 4 disc Live “Throwing Copper” SDE from Udiscover.com that was “on sale” for $66 which is still crazy expensive for a 2cd +2lp. I didn’t even know that SDE existed. It’s one of the best 90’s albums but you can’t get the SDE anywhere. It may be very limited.


Love – Forever Changes 50th anniversary box set only £29.99 on Amazon.uk
and all Crass reissues have been reduced as well.
Thanks Paul


Never thought of looking for reduced Crass – thanks for pointing it out.


If you are after Crass CDs One Little Indian has 30% off their catalogue via the online store using code OLIBF30 which beats the deals on Amazon


Absolutely gutted to have missed the Soft Cell deal…. the amount of time I spend on this site, but always seem to miss out on the best deals!!


Jean Michel Jarre 4 disc Equinox Infinity box set now €49 on Amazon.de


Damn Late Noticiations… For some reason my PCs Notifications are coming through late…. The Soft Cell Notification Just pinged up, so i clicked on it instantly to see it back up to £78….. my Instant Notification was only 2 hours late!


Its a case of ‘Look what you could have won’ sadly! Annoyed i missed that too.

Mikey 471

I love that you’re showing us these great deals but my wallet is now on life support!

Walked into fopp today saw the soundgarden artists den super deluxe set, it was £134.99 on amazon for ages but dropped to £99.99 today, but fopp had it for £60 and with the 20% off vinyl offer I got it for £48!!, I may have danced a jig at the checkout

Andrew Barnett

Thanks Paul for info on Soft Cell, hung my nose over it at lunchtime on Amazon Germany at 55 euros so please I hung on

Wayne C

Thanks Paul, Soft Cell ordered!, looking forward to investigating this really interesting box set. Only know the singles and first album, will be good to check all the other stuff out.


Wow. Go get that Soft Cell box at that price. I love mine. And that OMD box is fantastic. Go get em.


Magnetic Fields 5xCD 50 Song Memoir now £17 while the 3xcd 69 Love Songs is £7! On Amazon UK.


Just bought Paul Simon’s Gracelands 25th anniversary collectors edition for £36 in Amazon.de Black Friday deal. Also Eric Clapton’s Life In 12 Bars career spanning 4-vinyl box set for £28 from Amazon.uk! This doesn’t say it’s a Black Friday deal but is massively undercutting Amazon.de’s actual Black Friday deal!


Bowie “Loving the Alien” CD boxset back under £100 on Amazon UK

robert tyrrell

Steven Wilson home invasion 5 LP box set 46 euros amazon italy


Soft Cell / Keychains & Snowstorms – The Singles CD that was released at the same time as the box set is only £2.99 on Amazon UK

Peter m

Ignore reviews that say the sound quality
is poor on this. My copy is fine .


Soft cell Keychains boxset £26 on Amazon.uk!!!! Lowest I have seen!!!


Nabbed it – brilliant tip, thanks! Glad I waited, but never thought it would go that low.


Insane price. Was debating at £50-odd from Germany but this made it easy. Looks like still available but 1-2 weeks delivery presumably shipped in from Europe.

Derek Langsford

That is crazily annoying for those of us who got it early (I paid £61.33). Shame the whole set is brickwalled.

I am trying to learn to hold off purchasing as soon as such sets come out because of these later, deep discounts. Though if everyone does that I am sure the labels will stop releasing them – a catch 22.

Billy Dojcak

Was it a private seller or amazon? Scams abound at the holidays.
I would have bought one as well, but it was long gone.


A bit of a local deal. Fame Amsterdam, in the basement of the media markt near central station, has all Pink Floyd immersion boxes for €64.99. About 15 of all of each left, minus 1 copy of the Wall.

Stevie B

The Ian Dury Yellow Vinyl is £9.99 at HMV. They have 20% off ALL vinyl today and tomorrow, so it’s £8.01.


Deacon Blue – Believers excellent boxset with the live gig from 1988 is currently £10.99 on amazon uk. I ordered it on Wednesday and it turned up today so it’s legit. I was a bit concerned they might’ve mislabelled the normal CD.


Snatched the OMD set. Has been unavailable in the US site for quite a while.

There has been some comments about the deals on Amazon US. To be honest, the US site has consistently run some of the better prices, considering the conversion rates. Then super deluxe 1999 is just under $54. Still $76 from Amazon UK…..


Caravan Decca Years box £45 on Amazon Uk. Out of stock currently though

robert tyrrell

amazon.co.uk Freddie Mercury never boring deluxe set £59


Still with the Mott the Hoople box… here’s the message you get when visiting hmv.com:
Mental Train: The Island Years 1969-71
Mott the Hoople
CD Box Set
Sold out


The Mott box is gone as well. There is no backorder or out of stock (from Amazon) notation mentioned that I see. There are just five 3rd party dealers selling it for £50 and up. What’s up with these “Black Friday” deals being gone already? It’s just past 4:30 AM here on the west coast so Friday has barely begun and already I missed the Red Rose Speedway deal, which is one I’ve been waiting for. Debating if Abbey Road might be cheaper somewhere as we get closer to Christmas…


Geof – you’re correct… the Mott box is up to £50… that’s too bad, because £16.99 was an incredible price!

Wayne C

Lots of new titles just added to Sound of Vinyl
Springsteen box set vol 2 £89 – many more


Amazon UK are selling Eno ‘Music For Installations’ vinyl box for £49.99.
It’s not immediately noticeable but if you click on the listing and then ‘used and new’ then you will see it.

Rare Glam

Not marked as Black Friday deals on Amazon UK but if you’re a Flaming Groovies fan, the two below will be of itnerest. Between the Lines is nearly £14 + and the UA CD is £10 + from other sellers.

Flaming Groovies – I’ll Have A…Bucket Of Brains (8 track UA singles CD) £7
Flaming Groovies – Between The Lines: The Complete Jordan / Wilson Songbook 1971-81 £8.73


Paul do you know if the Toto set has the 5.1
Album included i think it’s hydro


Ok thanks Paul cheers !


Their 2nd album Hydra was never in 5.1; their Grammy-winning mega-seller Toto IV (with the hits “Rosanna,” “Africa” and “I Won’t Hold You Back”) was released back in 2002 as an SACD disc (and also as a Mobile Fidelity gold disc and Sony Super Bit Mastering version). The 5.1 mix of IV — presumably the same as the SACD disc — was on the Blu-ray disc included in the $500 All In box, but as Paul mentions, the CD box is just the regular CDs.

Donal Murphy

If you are signed up to JPC.de,(allthough i have made a few purchases from them) then you will have just received by email, a coupon code for 20% off everything- no restrictions, just that at it can only be used once.
“ This bonus of 20% is valid for all CDs, LPs, DVDs and Blu-ray discs at http://www.jpc.de. You can redeem your coupon only once. ”

Stephen Gilmour

Donal what’s the code? I buy heaps from JPC and haven’t had a code??

Robert Wilson

i’ve had an email too and assume it’s a cust0mer-specific code, because it can only be used once.
It must be used by 8th December, so plenty time for you to contact jpc and query the lack of email.
The Prince CD set is 70Euros, so with the discount, that makes is the best offer i’ve seen, although i’m not sure how much shipping will be.


i only got a 10% coupon? but thx a lot for the info, i could have missed that

Stephen Gilmour

No US deals????


I don’t know how long ago the McCartney Red Rose Speedway Amazon.fr offer started, but the sale price appears to already be over even though it’s early Black Friday, since it’s currently €181,99, which is even higher than the previous regular price of €164.


Hey Paul … when I posted my comment at 10:38, it was only after clicking the link a couple of times and finding it only at €181.99. Your comment posted at 11:08 says it was still on sale, “…about an hour ago,” which would’ve been around 10:08, so I have to assume the sale ended literally in that half-hour or so between you checking and me then heading there to buy it. C’est la Vie! Hopefully it’ll turn up somewhere else discounted between now and Christmas.


I know somebody has already mentioned this, but the HMV 20% deal today & tomorrow, includes ALL today’s new releases!
So just picked up the 1999 box set for £160!

Richard S

FOPP are also doing a 20% off all vinyl.

Phil Wilson

The McCartney Egypt Station 3 LP set was £14.99 yesterday, £29.99 today (then with 20% off). Lots of CDs jumped up a pound compared to last week too sadly.

Andy Gray

Is that in store only? Can’t see anything other than headphones online

Ivo Peeters

Soft Cell – Keychains & Snowstorms box for € 59,97 on amazon.de

Also Toto – All-In box for € 29,97

Wayne C

Not much at all on Amazon UK is there quite a disappointment really thought there would be much more box set wise!, haven’t seen any at all?.
