Deal alert / Bob Marley Complete Island Recordings METAL box


There’s no point pretending that this metal ‘collectors edition’ version of Bob Marley and the Wailers‘s Complete Island Recordings 12LP vinyl box is cheap, because it’s not – but if you are in the market for one of these limited edition metal sets then you aren’t going to beat the current price on Amazon Italy.

The set is about £269 on the Italian site which is €380. The UK price is £448, while in the USA you’ll pay $583 or which is around £379. So that’s a massive saving.

This set includes the nine studio albums (Catch A Fire to Confrontation) recorded for Island Records and two live releases (including the 2LP Babylon By Bus) all pressed on 180g vinyl. As well as being METAL the collectors’ edition comes with a download code voucher for high resolution download and it comes with the turntable slip mat and photos.

Looking like more and more of a bargain from Amazon US, it’s now £620 on Amazon UK. Another SDE coup?



I paid $292 from Amazon.com and they honoured the mix up on the ordering process, no complaints.

Today got a refund of $48 for reduced import tax, so all in I paid $244, can’t be bad.

Having compared the new Uprising to the Uprising found in the 1982 “The Box Set”, save your money and put an in stock alert on the ’82 set at Discogs. You will get one for around the same price, it’s all analogue, it’s whisper quiet, the dynamics are astounding, the presence is unlike any other version I’ve heard. Well worth it, with 10,000 made they aren’t totally scarce and if fidelity is what you’re after the ’82 Box Set is the way to go.


Yes, good luck with the hi-Rez download. I’ve tried over 50 times, with no luck, and on different PCs and macs. Download crashes out on different sizes. Trying to get it fixed thru emails to back to black resulted in them telling me they fixed it, then it not being fixed, to them sending me MP3 codes instead. Who cares about MP3s! What a joke.


The extra premium for that metal box/pictures/slipmat never fails to amaze me… It adds maybe £25 of value, compared to the ‘cardboard’ set, (and that’s being really, really generous!) …But it costs £175 more!!


Got mine from Amazon.ca for c. £170 (their mistake, but they honoured it!). Beware the hi-res download code however, it’s in one big 15gb lump and it kept breaking off part way through.

But a great box of great music of course!

So even at the Italian price it is £150 for a tin.
