Deal alert / Ian Dury: The Studio Albums Collection / 9CD career box set


Fantastic deal in the UK at the moment for The Studio Albums Collection, the career spanning box set featuring music from the much-missed Ian Dury.

This nine-CD box features eight original albums (five by Ian Dury and three by Ian Dury and The Blockheads) and a superb bonus CD of non-album tracks. Everything is packaged in a clamshell box and you get a 16-page booklet.

This is really nicely done, and an absolute bargain at just £23 – about £2.50 a disc!

Due to the SDE alert, I was able to purchase this for $33.65 USD/£22.48 GBP (incl. shipping to New York City). Now its back up to $56.54 USD/£39.27 GBP. Thanks, Paul!


I picked this up Friday from the big river people, it came yesterday.

Worth the price for the first 2 albums.


Thank you — it must have sold out fast — now OOS — back in stock on 1st May @ £39.27!
