David Bowie loving the Alien boxset £90.93 on Amazon uk at the moment

Richard John

I just saw that and I was so proud of getting it from Germany where it worked out to about 88 quid. Wonder why it took so long to drop. I was also going to get A New career boxset but its rocketed update from 81 to 95 quid on amazon. Ouch.

Nelson Lee

Kate Bush cd boxes now £48.48 & £78.81 On Amazon uk

Colin MacKenzie

Pretty good deals today from Coda Records in Edinburgh who have 25% off everything. They have an Amazon shop for browsing whats available.


Van Morrison It’s Too Late To Stop Now (vols 2,3,4 plus DVD) down to £14.99 Amazon UK Prime at the moment


eBay UK have 15% off site wide today


Metallica Hardwired ….to self destruct Super Deluxe Vinyl CD Boxset with 3xcoloured vinyl bonus tracks on CD, art prints and memorabilia … only £28 on amazon UK.


David Harold

I ordered the Metallica set – despite saying it was the four disc, what I received, and now have to send back, was the RSD 2LP red vinyl version. Amazon no help at all with a replacement, only refund.

Paul Taylor

David Harold;
It was sold by a third party seller, wmdservices. That’s why you’ll have been given a refund rather than replacement
I ordered a rare Duran Duran live CD from them via Amazon for about £22 and received some Blue Oyster Cult album that I’d never heard of on blue vinyl. I complained to Amazon and, like you, was refunded and asked to send the wrong item back. Within a week the CD was back up for sale at £46. To say I was angry is an understatement
I suspect that Metallica album will either disappear from Amazon listings and reappear at a higher price. If I was you I would complain in the strongest terms to Amazon customer service and tell them that you are aware that this seller has done this sort of thing before. It’s bad enough that sellers screw buyers on eBay when they’ve sold something for less than they wanted, but for it to happen on Amazon is beyond contempt

Mike williams

Me too. Packaged up ready to return today. I did reorder again this morning but if you’ve also been sent the same wrong version then I guess it will happen again so I’ve cancelled.


The same happened with the order I made, I received the two disc red vinyl RSD version instead of the advertised/listed four disc vinyl box.
On the positive side, I raised this with amazon customer service and they said the same as others have experienced, they can’t replace the item for the one that is listed but they offered a full refund, told me to keep the two disc version and as a gesture of goodwill credited me a 10 quid amazon voucher.

Happy New Year.

I got the Beatles (finally) in HMV two days ago for £99.99, and then exchanged it yesterday when the original one was damaged). Got number 22,658.

I have noticed physical music sets seem to have dropped in price more consistently recently and that coupled with the recent news that it looks like HMV are going to disappear from our high street, and I wonder what future we have……:(

It depresses the hell out of me :(

What are my daughters going to do in the future?

Paul I think we’re of similar ages, and I know you’re busy, but it would be interesting maybe at some point to look at the history of high street music retailing – virgin, our price, tower records, woolies, HMV, independents.

What the hell happened to us?

Ollie Carlisle

Check out the book Going For A Song by Garth Cartwright. It’s a history of British record shops and a great & interesting read. Probably available from Amazon, ironically!

Paul Taylor

Shoot me down if anyone so wishes, but I never understood who that GnR box set was aimed at. As others have said with a ‘limited’ run of 10,000 and price point of £850/$1000 it was never going to be rare or desirable. Vast amount of content but it would almost take a lifetime to get through it all! Plus, at the end of the day it’s all connected to ONE album. The Nazareth box even at its full price was exponentially better value and covered pretty much a full career. Yes it had a CD/vinyl mix but that sort of thing just seems to bother purists.
Now that this big wooden box is selling for around half price I wonder if the marketing genius who dreamt it up is still working for the company…..


The GNR box set would need to drop by $600 or at least $550 to be worth it. There are a lot of artists’ box set that aren’t this over priced.

David Else

Jean-Michel Jarre albums
Planet Jarre: 50 Years of Music – (Deluxe Album)
Equinoxe Infinity – Jean-Michel Jarre
Both 36.29 each at Zoom.co.uk with code signup10

david else

Sorry that should be £6.29 each

Filippo Rostoni

At the moment it is sold for € 569 on the european/UK main store.


Filippo Rostoni

During Black Friday period, this huge box was around € 550 on Amazon Germany main store for a week or something…. I am serious.



The GnR “Locked n Loaded” is only $499.99 on their own website


Not sure why you didn’t post my post yesterday about it.

Still in my opinion too expensive considering there are 10,000 of these available, making it uncollectable.

Now if it goes it $299.99 I’ll buy it!!


G n R Locked and Loaded is $499 on the gnrmerch.com website. 1/2 price!(from the original price) Only until Jan. 3
Just ordered mine!


I think I might buy the uber-boxset of Appetite era, if it came down to more reasonable price like 100€ or so. I have the original vinyl and can access all the songs on streaming services while waiting for the price to come down..

Gary C

Merry Christmas Paul, hope you’re taking some time off this year

eric slangen

Good to see the price is going down for the BIG box but it’s still 100 -200 euros too expensive.


How much was it originally? I recall some folks claiming is was an ‘investment’ as it was a ltd piece, doesn’t look to have been much of an investment!

alan hansen

for the record, the single-disc distillation of this set is excellent.


Bananarama is SRO!!!

Stephen Hunt

Thanks Paul, just ordered the Jean Michel Jarre and Lindsey Buckingham cds. Very happy!!


Does anyone know if these SoftCell boxes contain the corrected DVD?

I cannot get over the Soft Cell box set price. I already have one (from Amazon.de) for a decent price but it is not available at all on Amazon.com so for that price I decided to buy it again. I highly recommend all American Soft Cell fans to jump on this. It’s completely not available in the USA. It was supposed to be released end of November on amazon.com but it never happened. Probably because there wasn’t any meaningful volume left. I figured I can always sell it here in the USA. Price is exactly $62 if you order it in UK Pounds and use the credit card conversion. Amazon always screws your on the conversion rate.

Happy Boxing Day all!!


Once the word got out about the poor mastering, excitement for this set died down pretty quickly…..

Chris Squires

And here’s the funny thing, I think it is fine. Either my ears are shot to pieces or maybe I am just not so picky or obsessed, but I think it’s a decent set and at £55 it is the definition of no-brainer. My guess is they still contain the original DVD but that should still be available to get a replacement. My replacement came through quite quickly from the first batch.


Squires, couldn’t agree more about the no brainer. Thanks for insight on DVD. Will email for replacement now.


Poor mastering?? The thing sounds excellent. Been playing it for months.

Richard S

I thought it sounded fine too. I don’t see what the fuss is about. Now the 2 disc singles collection, that DOES sound a bit ropey, even to my old, untrained ears. Would snap this up at 55 quid, unfortunately I bought it full price … sigh! You win some…


What 2 disc singles collection ? As far as the sound goes the mastering is very poor and you would think that they couldn’t top that but they did with the single disc collection which sounds horrendous. I was looking forward to hearing Loving You, Hating Me (Special USA Mix) on CD for the first time but the rip i downloaded from a well known blog sounds a hundred times better.

Richard S

Neil, Sorry, yes it was the recent K&S SINGLE disc collection I meant.

Jeff Milrod

I would like to wish PAUL SINCLAIR & all of the members who contribute to this site a very HAPPY HOLIDAY season and a HEALTHY & PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR for 2019!!

This site is TOTALLY AMAZING and I couldn’t imagine being without it. How I managed before joining just over a year ago, I have no idea!!

Rock On,,,,,,SDE & PAUL



Kai Karkkainen

I would also like to wish you Paul and the entire SDE community a wonderful Christmas time and a Happy New Year. I stumbled upon the SDE site a long time ago and I simply cannot imagine a day without it. Looking forward to another year of interesting content here…


Merry Christmas Paul and thanks for a great site!
Here’s one for the Aussies – Bob Dylan’s Deluxe Trouble No More is very very cheap at the moment at Amazon Australia

(Link here you can rejig if you want to share)

Jonathan Riley

if only they would ship to the USA I would be all over it

Peter Stanton

I hope that you are having a wonderful Christmas Paul and all the very best to you and your family for 2019.

As many others have said, thank you for all that you do and for all the deals that I have found via SDE.

I’m a big Stones collector, first gig I went to, 1965, so whether to go for the not really very appealing Beggars Banquet reissue or not? It was definitely too expensive before, but is now tempting. Another glass and I expect that I will hit the button.

Once again, thanks and all the best.



Wishing you – Paul and SDE readers, and your family a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!

Le Baron

I can’t believe it’s been one year since I told you SDE was my favorite website on earth.
It still is ! :)
Thanks again and again for what you do for us, 365 days a year.
Can’t wait for Paul Young’s box set and, who knows…Seeds of Love Deluxe and 2 new Mike Oldfield Deluxe releases (Islands and Earth Moving) this year?
Thanks again !!

Mathew Lauren


Thanks for another great year of “heads-up notifications” — deal$ on 5.1+ surround-sound PHYSICAL recordings! Here’s to hoping that next year will bring us even more, NEW, well-mixed, discrete, and immersive 5.1+ original, studio-album reissues (are u listening Jimmy Page?), as well as NEW, blues-based, 5.1+ rock/pop/jazz, PHYSICAL recordings.

Hope you and yours have a Merry Christmas.



p.s. Nice work on the Paul Young reissue. Maybe next time with the 5.1+, yeah? …on a different PY reissue-campaign.

Andrew Barnett

Thanks for all your work this year, Paul. Happy Christmas to you

Just like to add my best wishes for Christmas to you Paul for a wonderful online resource and shop. Hope you have a restful break and see you in 2019. Festive greetings to all SDE customers too


David Bowie – Loving The Alien now €92,50 (£83) at amazon.de. Cheapest it has been in Europe I think.

Merry Xmas to Paul and all the SDE readers.

Richard John

Just bought the Bowie set from Germany. Woot – quite cheap, although it rose to €93.30 between adding it to my shopping basket and paying for it. rather odd.


Bowie Loving the alien. even cheaper on amazon.it, €87,50. I’m not buying it yet, expecting it to go down even more.


The price on amazon.uk has just gone back up for In No Sense ? & Treasure Hiding…….
I mean…..really ? Who does that on Christmas Eve ? It should be exactly the opposite, right ?


Merry Christmas, to Paul and to All. Let’s hope it’s a good one.

Trevor Hughes

Thanks for the heads up on the Bananarama 2CD/DVD Set, not a massive fan at all but I am sure it will be worthing watching the DVD and of course the CD’s, can’t complain for £4.99.
