Are you doing a Kinks Arthur Super deluxe unboxing, Paul? (Love this site, I’m a big fan, keep up the good work!)


I received my Kinks box set today and I’m shocked. The cd’s are in a horrible state. Anyone else having the same issues?

Haven’t got the chance to rip / play them. But afraid secure / accurate rip will be impossible with the state of the cd.

Why couldn’t they include the 96-24 hi-res on blu-ray or dvd? It’s available at Qobuz, HDtracks,…

What a disappointment.


Bruce Soord of the Pineapple Thief has a new solo album out this week. The SDE has a DVD with two 5.1 mixes included apparently along with HD versions of the two CDs. Get it at Burning Shed, it’s nearly a tenner cheaper there than the tax avoiders.

Bought the Elbow signed exclusive from Amazon. Can anyone fathom out how they decide which albums come with Autorip or not? The signed edition and corresponding Amazon mint pack edition (both are the same) do not come with Autorip but the regular jewel case edition does. Weird.

Also does anyone else get annoyed when part of the album artwork is a sticker (not a hype sticker) which is placed on top of the shrink wrap? The Elbow CD is one such instance. The band name and album title are on a sticker on the shrink wrap and you lose the whole effect of the album cover when you remove the shrink-wrap. Why can’t they place on the actual cover and then seal it?

Also I got my Dukes of the Stratosphere CD/Blue-ray last Thursday with my postcard signed by Sir John Johns aka Andy Partridge.


“lose the whole effect of the album cover”

But instead get the whole effect of the cover photo (which is probably the thinking behind the design).

I thought the auto rip was based on whether it could find a match within “Amazon music”. I recently bought the Blondie “Heart of Glass” EP. The auto rip version I got was indeed called the same but a completely different remix EP.


I once bought an album from Amazon (I think it was a Freeez deluxe re-release) and it turned out that the digital version had some different tracks compared to the 2 CD version. Best of both worlds!

2019-50=1969=The release of Arthur by the Kinks


Cigarettes After Sex release their second long player, Cry, this week. They sound like Mazzy Star, the lead vocalist has an androgynous singing voice and all of their songs sound the same but it’s a winning formula.

Richard S

Ha ha. What a fantastic summary :)


Rick Astley signed edition looks quite not available… James Blunt, too.


Amazon currently have a great deal on the new Space Anthology – 6 CDs with loads of bonus and unreleased stuff for only £19.99.


And still no mention of the Motorhead reissues due on Friday.


New Sean O’Hagan album “Radum Calls, Radum Calls” is released on Friday!

Wax Monster X

Now that’s GREAT news!


There’s also a 6 CD complete recordings set from Prog/Psych rockers Mighty Baby – while I realise that’s pretty niche, I’m looking forward to it and can recommend it to anyone who likes the 69-71 crossover period between Psych and Prog because those guys nail it and it’s only about £25.


Wasn’t aware of this. Thanks for the heads up!

Ken Moore

I pre-ordered the Mighty Baby. Been looking forward to that, as well.


Pulp’s HisnHers is also out on Friday reissued on vinyl as a 25th anniversary edition with a further limited run in white too.


Bruce Springsteen – “Western Stars” (Songs from the film) – released Friday, October 25, 2019.

Tim South

Cherry red Records are releasing Alan Price’s classic 1974 album Between Today and Yesterday this week , a new remaster .

John Whelan

The second lot of Prefab Sprout reissues are out this Friday as well.

Vic Matusak - Baltimore

Paul, I read the site regularly. Just want to say thanks for all your efforts, I love the news and info. …If I lived in the U.K. I’d buy you a beer and talk records!

Roberto R

Hello Paul , do you know if the Live Box set (2 blu-ray + 4 cd) by the Cure has been released in the UK ? thanks


Also out this week are the latest reissues from The Fall, all on Cherry Red: Hex Enduction Hour is a 3LP set with the hour-long album over 4 sides for the first time and a disc of Peel Session and live material and also a reproduction of the “Look, Know” 7″, neither side of which is on the LP. Room To Live comes as a double LP, the content being the same as the CD edition from 2006. Instead of doing standalone CD editions, there’s a 6CD boxset called “1982” which includes Hex, RTL, the Fall In A Hole live album and a further live set as well as various bonus tracks. There’s nothing previously unreleased to be had but it’s an interesting approach to the CD format and how it continues to labour in the current market place.

Paul Kent

Already ordered. Not sure why Grotesque has been skipped, though… ?

John Simmons

Good point Paul, Grotesque and Slates have both been skipped and they really do deserve the Deluxe treatment!
