Just had an email from Amazon to say delivered of my ‘Script.,,’ deluxe has been brought forward to July 11th…so they sourced some from somewhere

Richard Fisher

The Factory vinyl boxset is now just £59.99 on Amazon UK.


Factory communications vinyl box set currently £59.99 on Amazon. Up and down like a yo-yo..

Mike M

Still not tempted at £60, had some poor reviews this boxset. Granted these reviews were for a full price boxset but gonna pass all the same.

Colin MacKenzie

Decent deal offered by the Sound Of Vinyl on Simple Minds 40 Best Of Double Silver Vinyl Compilation at £9.99. (P&P adds a further £3.95 although presumably you can add other titles to dilute the impact of this)


Excellent deal – snapped this up earlier. Confusingly the site now says “Sold Out – 2 copies left”.


Offer on “Every Move You Make” now over and completely sold out. Many thanks to Paul. Managed to grab 3 copies.


That’s why it’s sold out, who needs three copies?

Chris Squires

They make fabulous presents for people of a certain age, just like the Phil Collin set a few Christmases ago. £10 for 8 albums or in this case £10 for 6 albums worth, all remastered and sounding beautiful. If I had friends they would each be getting one of these.
Plus they will imagine you spent at least as twice as much as you did.
It’s win / win for Gökhan and his mates.


Just grabbed “Every Move You Make”, which is still available at £9.99 on hmv.com. (£2 for 2nd class postage). A bargain -many thanks for the alert.

Richard Fisher

The Motown Hitsville boxset now just over £59 via Amazon UK marketplace seller.


Bowie’s Conversation Piece box is £65.26 on Amazon UK, supposedly the lowest it’s been. It’s been steadily declining in price over the last week so this may continue to go lower still.


I have to agree, EXCELLENT Remastered sound. I feenthey fi ally got the sound quality right, so many reissues for the Police in the past that sounded awful to me. Worth it for the sound quality alone.


Bought it last year and happy with it however the steve hoffman’s boys destroy the remaster as always…

Chris Squires

Life must be one long miseryfest for those guys. If you start from the premise of looking for problems then everything, however enjoyable, will be tarnished.

Mike R

I have long had the Police Message in a Box set. I had held off on this until a SDE price alert a while back and I couldn’t resist the U.K. deal <$20 US dollars for the newer Every Breath You Take Set. I found the sound to be better the the message box. I also liked the organization of discs much better. This gives each album its own disc in original artwork compartments with a 6th disc Flexible Strategies with the bonus material. The Message box had all five studio albums in sequential but condensed to 4 CDs with the bonus material between each album. A funky proposition. The new Every Breath well worth it, especially at this price. Thanks SDE for the alert.

Chris Squires

The Script for a Jester’s Tear 4cd 1BD is back on Amazon UK at £28.89

Which, to me means two things…..
a) This is getting very close to the last opportunity for people to get this at a reasonable sub-£30 level.
b) Those of us that ordered last week at £22.04 are a step closer to receiving our orders. Mine is still at the “Not Yet Dispatched” stage, but the fact that Amazon are back in the game should mean the last batch will be honoured.

Mike M

Just checked and funds for this purchase have cleared my account, usually held till dispatch so these orders will fulfilled pal

Chris Squires

That’s good news. NTSC.

Joe Donato

After having these albums on old Vinyl, cassette, and first generation CD, plus owning the Message In A Box set, I sprung for this CD box last year. I am glad I did. Very good sound quality and packaging for the price. My only issue (and its a minor one) is that the Synchronicity CD does not have the lyrics like the original LP was. But I know the words by heart anyway!

Richard John

Is the sound that much better than the Message in a Box? I hesitate over this as I own the boxset already, therefore most of the material from this set.


It’s closer to the original vinyl than MIAB. More intense and compact. The packaging is very nice too – if you like cardboard sleeves, which I do. For a tenner it really is a bargain.


For USA buyers wondering about increased shipping prices, it’s because the Universal Postal Union can set their own prices from 1st July. It means an increase of over 100% in costs that the UK’s Royal Mail pay for last mile delivery in the USA. They obviously have to pass on those costs.

And with 95% less passenger flights due to covid-19, Royal Mail also have to use more expensive air freight services.I

I sell on eBay and it’s not really going to be worth sending parcels to the USA from now on. Large letters are thankfully not affected so I can still send single CDs. Box sets however will be much more expensive from the UK to the USA from now on.


Those prices have been in effect for a few months already……just last month I paid about 30 GBP for shipping to Fla for 2 box sets….where before the Virus I would have paid maybe 10 GBP

The Golden Age Of The Phonograph

US buyers having to pay high shipping charges when buying LPs/Box Sets from the UK and the EU is nothing new to those of us buying items from from the US for shipping to the UK and EU.

Shipping charges from the US have been sky high (geddit?) for many years, with only Amazon charging reasonable rates until Covid-19 hit us.

Mike R

I’m a USA buyer. Thanks for the info. I was wondering WTH was going on.

Tim Abbott

Pure nonsense. Stay off the crack, Vinny!

Bryan Greiner

Thanks. I think I’ll jump at this one. But the thing that gets me with every The Police release is that they always skip over the Japanese and Spanish sung versions of De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da. They’re not on this release nor the Message in a Box set. You can only get them on the original 45 (and YouTube).


I have a CD called “Stars in Spanish” which features 13 Tracks sung Spanish by their original artists, (Bon Jovi, Scorpions, Suzanne Vega). This CD has the Spanish version of DeDoDoDo, DeDaDaDa. I have no CD with the Japanese Version…

Vinny Marino

The Police box set is awful. Sound quality is the worst. Search out the SACD hybrids. They are the best.

Ben Williams

The Police box set is awesome; in sound quality, packaging and value :-)


I was happy at £15 anyone grabbing this at a tenner will be even happier


Vinnie No way man ! Wot you playing this on .?????????


I’ve had all the Police LP’s on vinyl since the 80’s, and I’ve bought every re-master of every Police CD that’s been released – Japanese remasters included.
This box set tickles the muscle memory of the original vinyl more than any re-master so far. Miles Showell did an excellent job.
He most definitely did a lot of multi-band work on his mastering, and didn’t stay 100% true to the vinyl, but in my opinion he bettered the high mids which makes Andy Summers guitar pop out a bit more, retained Copeland’s high hat sound, and didn’t screw up the dynamics all of which is quite a feat.
10 quid for this box is an utter giveaway. I paid 15 euries and couldn’t believe how good it sounded. I just wish they’d chucked in Brimstone and Treacle too.

Christopher Merritt

Strongly disagree – the sound was really nice and full on my system – and the price was/is freaking ridiculous. No brainer at all!


Remove that cotton wool from your ears Vinny!

John Higney

Sorry Vinny I have all the original vinyl from 1978 yes I’m that old have the Half Speed Remasters all the SACD versions and the Hybrids and one 24k Syncronicity Mobile Fidelity cd I’ve heard them all and I think the CD box set sounds spot on I also have the original Police 4cd Box Set so I dont know where you think it’s awful???????

Dibyaroop Ghosh

I have bought so many from SDE Deal alerts….Sgt. Peppers Super Deluxe, The Who Max A’s & B’s, Rolling Stones etc…just to name a few……but lately I have noticed for Amazon UK, that the landing or primary page where the SDE link leads to has the deal alert price….but depending when it figures out my delivery address (which is India in my case) then available prices become exponentially higher…..the 9.99 for Police becomes 29.99 (to start with and most are 3rd party dealers)….same happened with Abbey Road which was listed at 65.99 but my price came to 92.39 and then there was shipping….is it because of Covid Amazon isn’t selling to other countries?….since all my purchases from Amazon UK has been Amazon EU S.a.r.L….btw, I have the Police box set….bought from one of the Fnac in Paris early this year


57th and 9th superdeluxe box (cd+dvd) by Sting is just €8,99 at JPC.de

Larry Davis

Finally ordered that Police box…even with higher shipping, still only $26US, not bad…was toying with whether or not to get it cuz the 4CD Message In A Box has a ton more music & just as cheap…I figured I’d get this set for the remastering & the other for the missing tracks…just received that Motown box from Amazon Germany…the deal was great but shipping…not…at $32, nice piece though…and just found that 6CD Beach Boys “Made In California” in yearbook packaging for $75US, snatched that one…looking forward to that Prince Sign box, promptly preordered on Amazon cuz of the pay at dispatch…


Ordered. Thanks Paul.


Keith Richard’s deluxe edition of Talk Is Cheap only $46.33 shipping included if your a Prime Member in the USA


I got The Police boxset from a previous alert, thought about getting another copy for a friend, but the shipping is more than the boxset!

Have a great day!


Yep, shipping to U.S. is around 125% of the price. Guess increased shipping charges has become the new normal. Can’t imagine I will ever buy from Amazon UK again.

Mike T

Yea I love that police set…granted the vinyl was 90 odd but I didn’t have any of their albums and have had so many great hours listening to it..for 9.99 is such a no brainer even if you are a casual fan like myself..thanks Paul etcall as ever!

James Kane

At £9.99 an absolute no brainer if ever there was one.

Tom M

3-D The Catalogue [Blu-ray Audio] – £107.05
Lowest price I’ve seen in a while.


What site?

Tom M

Amazon UK

Richard K

The Bowie New Career LP box currently around 65 quid on amazon japan.


Importation fees and shipping take it up to around 140gbp at checkout – but still not a bad price. Never bought from amazon Japan previously. Anybody know the policy if it arrives damaged. Dont fancy paying return postage on a 13 vinyl box…

Mark S

HMV doing them for £149

Chris Squires

I promised myself and, more importantly, the wife that I wouldn’t buy anything else, and I already have the Police vinyl set. But at a tenner, it’s mad not to.


I think many wives have a Paul voodoo doll with needles in it…..


I am always promising myself that, it does not unfortunately last long.

andrew peake

Police box same price in my local HMV


Hi Paul The POLICE Every Move You Make The Studio Recordings CD Set is £9.99 on Amazon.


Well, my £19.99 copy of ‘Who Can I Be Now’ has just arrived & it looks completely legit. Discs are gold coloured, all the cd sleeves are the same size, the gatefolds are folded nice & cleanly, the cd’s are in the Japanese style inner sleeves & the outer box itself is nice, sturdy & un-dented. Thanks to Adam for the heads-up.


Just received mine too. I have to take back what I was fearing because I agree it looks to be the real done. Impeccable quality, gold discs, nothing noticeably a bit off. This might go down as the best bargain I’ve ever grabbed! It arrived at the same time as my Loving The Alien box (which I paid full price for), but I’ve got a Bowie weekend ahead of me!


Well done guys! If you stay alert for deals, good things will happen. Thanks for sharing.

Abbey Road (50th Anniversary) Deluxe [VINYL]
50th Anniversary Edition
Triple Vinyl, Box Set

£19.98 on amazon UK !!

phil Burford

Great -got one

Ben Williams

Ahh man I missed this one!! :-(

CJ Feeney

I’ve ordered a couple of the bargains highlighted on this site recently despite them being out of stock. The Eno Installations set for £15, and the Sparks No.1 in Heaven white 2LP for £14.
Amazon UK honoured both.

I just need Amazon.fr to honour the Bruce Cockburn “too good to be true price” and I’ll be a very happy boy.


Hmm My Eno Installations hasn’t been dispatched yet….

Bruce Nicholson

The Factory Communications boxset has been steadily going down in price this week after it went back up to £119. Its at £78 today.

Richard Fisher

Back down to £59.99 at the moment.


There are 3 David Bowie CD box sets for ‘Who Can I Be Now’ currently on Amazon at £19.99 – third party fullfilled by Amazon. These must be the Chinese versions surely? I’d much prefer the real thing. I was once sent a Chinese fake copy of the Beatles Mono boxset by proper Amazon (full price), so I’m a bit dubious without seeing pictures first.


I have to admit I did grab one, but I will be returning it if it proves to be fake. Should be arriving tomorrow, so let’s wait and see.


Well you’d hope not but I genuinely was sent a counterfeit Beatles Mono set a couple of years back (having cost £100 I think). Even when I contacted Amazon customer service and said it was a fake (and attached photos and a link to a site which compared the real and fake versions), they didn’t really want to believe it. I got my refund though so that was fine.


The difference is easy to see. If they are light-gold coloured discs, they are real. I think they produced it in that colour specifically to battle piracy.


i had the mono cd set off amazon which turned out to be fake. They were GOOD fakes tbf but still fakes all the same. Amazon were excellent gettin my refund etc

David Bowie
Who Can I Be Now? [1974 – 1976]
Box Set, 1974 – 1976

£19.99 Amazon uk

Richard Fisher

Doors Soft Parade 50th Anniversary boxset currently £32 via Amazon UK marketplace seller.


a-ha: Lifelines Deluxe currently at 10€ from JPC Germany.

Graham (the other one)

The Marillion Script box set is in stock at Amazon Canada for $63. Not exactly a steal but a lot cheaper then the 60 – 70 quid in the UK. No idea if they ship to the UK currently.


I understand that new stock for the script box (CD’s) will be available on the band’s webshop within days, at the regular price of 29,99 (+ p&p).



Noticed this Bowie loving the alien vinyl box under 90 quid on Amazon US on the SDE price tracker (obviously postage on top for non US customers)

Richard Anderson

This might have been mentioned on the website before but Depeche Mode Black Celebration 12″ Box Set is only £44.99 on amazon.co.uk.

Paul Martin

Frustrating when you pre-order but either way this is a truly amazing set for a truly amazing album – the documentary on the Blu-ray is gold-dust too. All decent albums should be treated like this.

The Gedemondan

Ordered this through my local store (in Adelaide) to try to support them through covid slow down, but they haven’t been able to get any stock, so I missed out.


I luckily managed to get a copy two weeks ago direct from Fish (signed too!) after his webstore was down for almost a month. They’ve all been snapped up now though.

Richard Cosgrove

Different box set, but for those who missed The Hurting deluxe, my local HMV (Colchester) has three copies at £45. The HMV website shows it as sold out.


This has been out of stock since mid-May on Amazon and I doubt they are getting any more. The Marillion and Fish website have both sold out – I think this one has gone for good. The other two Fish sets sold out very quickly too.

Darren Gray

Prince – Movie Collection [Blu-ray] [Region Free] [2016] is currently £9.99 on Amazon UK. Contains 3 of his movies in 1 box set Purple Rain, Under The Cherry Moon and Graffiti Bridge. https://amzn.to/317oAWN

Wayne Olsen

It’s a great set!


So for the Canadians in the group, be warned: Postage & Packing: £19.81… Import Fees Deposit: £5.85… Order Total: £44.03. Ouch!

Mark H.

Ready to order, but the $15+ to ship to the USA caused me to cancel.


Worth jumping on this, if you don’t already have it. The blu-ray is worth £22 on its own!
