Shame this wasn’t released on vinyl. Would have got myself a copy too :(

12.33 Back up to full price but if you ordered it at a fiver you will have gotten the Autorip copy for free :)


All albums you buy from Amazon that have the Autorip function are free unless you cancel your order and download the mp3s beforehand in which case you have to pay for the mp3s.

Stevie B

Thank you. Ordered it last night. It also comes as a double Autorip album for Amazon Music UK. :)

@David McCallum A Soft Cell boxset is in production 9 CD’s and 1 DVD apparently, no due date as yet though.


Two of Marc’s albums have also been released in 2 disc sets if anyone was unaware. I picked both up by surprise as I heard nothing of them prior:

Stranger Things


Open All Night



Wow. The Canadian deal must have lasted for all of 10 seconds. Back up to $30 now pre S&H costs. Eek.


If you like Soft Cell / Marc Almond, this is also great value. 3 cd’s of 12″‘es including the B-sides. A must have for fans.


Didn’t it sell?

Gary Hunter

Thanks for this Paul, ordered without hesitation :)

Mike Williams

Even with the shipping to the U.S.A., it was less than $10.00USD!

Eric, some of these titles are on the boxset and this collection features a few 12″ mixes and a new song too…

Wonder when the Soft Cell Boxset is out then?

Justin Isbell

I was and your comment tipped me into buying it. Thanks Paul As an aside I’ve also got my ticket to see him at G Live later in the year :-)

David McCallum

You think there will be a Soft Cell boxset after Trials of Eyeliner last year?! I’m not seeing it. Though a Dave Ball focused boxset might be a fun compliment – with The Grid, remixes, Soft Cell “re-collabs,” etc. Probably wouldn’t warrant ten discs though.

Anthony James

As the comment below says, it is happening and both Almond and Ball have been tweeting about it over the last few months – there are going to be new remixes.

eric slangen

Great set. Are all these titles also on the big Almond box earlier this year?

Tainted Clive

Cracking deal!


Wow! Just ordered it. That is an amazing price :-)
