  3. Same here. Can't wait to get my hands on the Warm Leatherette reissue. There was just no way I was ever going to fork out the full price for it.

    Sort of wish I had bought one of the James boxes now.

  4. Just happened to browse the iTunes album sale expecting the usual massive-selling-everyones-already-got-them culprits to find this for only £4.99. Another sale, I love Gavin DeGraw.

  5. I just got a dispatch notice for my items. I kinda assumed that it just wouldn't happen. Exciting!

  7. I got a dispatched email last Tuesday and it still hasn't arrived, I'm leaving this address tomorrow too!
     
  8. Mine arrived yesterday so yours should definitely be with you soon!
     
  9. Some of the 2016 Phil Collins reissue are very cheap on Amazon Italy! The Essential Going Back, No Jacket Required, Both Sides and Hello, I Must Be Going! at €9,99 ! Others cheap, too.

  13. When your label halves the price of your big comeback album less than a month after it came out and in the same week you played Glastonbury? Ouch.

    It's still down week on week, I've heard.

  14. The Katy Perry and Take That albums were normal price in my HMV, strange. I did see a Cherry Red display though, 2 for £15. I was tempted to get spending but restrained myself. I'm trying to cut down on physical product (though I prefer it so much more).

  15. It was just a one week promotion for HMV only, I believe. Select reductions on chart albums for a week.

  16. Yes, all the 4.99 titles have now gone into the 2 for 15 deal.
     
  17. It's not the deluxe edition, but the Boy Krazy album is only £3.99 on Google Play.

    Even if you wanted to spend another £9.90 on the 10 bonus tracks, it's still a lot cheaper than trying to find the Cherry Pop CD, which is going for £40 on Discogs.

  18. £3.99 also on amazon digital music. I can't even find the Cherry Pop CD release on the amazon website?!
     
  19. This is a bit niche and probably not of much use, but I'll post it anyway in case anyone benefits from it. I bought Record Collector magazine to read on holiday, I used to buy it years ago and loved reading the listings of records for sale. I bought loads of coloured vinyl Smiths 7"s back in the day (German pressings I think), that are worth a fair amount now. The listings are pretty miniscule these days, sadly.

    But I digress. There is an ad in the magazine from 'Coda Records', which seems essentially one of those companies spitting out bootlegs of stuff that have become public domain. Through Amazon, there's a 20% off code ('VNYJLYRC') that you put in at the basket section.

    I don't think a lot of the stuff will be of much interest, but the one I'm considering is the Fleetwood Mac set - which is £13 at the moment for 6 cds, but 20% off makes it seem more reasonable (and reviews seem good) :



    The Beatles 'Abbey Road and Beyond', and the 'Bowie Plus Guests' and Stones collections are included. The Prince bootlegs weren't listed in the RC advert and don't seem to qualify for the 20 off, far as I can see.

    This is the Coda listing :


    As I say, probably not much use to anyone but thought I'd post it anyway. Apparently the code expires 31/7/17.

    (not sure why that second link doesn't work, try this)



    FFS, best just clicking the 'Coda Records' link in the original Fleetwood Mac listing.....

  20. I used to love record collector but they dont really cater for an expanded audience these days. Although admittedly i raRely seek it out now after Every issue became a Bob Dylan fanzine. They used to do madonna ratities lists and discographys but they havent done anything like that in years i dont think

    I used to buy up old copies and go through the listsings that were around 5-7 years old and call up old sellers - it was amazing how many people had stuff they had just bundled up in the attic and forgot about. I got some amazingly rare items like the like a prayer candle and things like the open your heart shop counter display for a fraction of what they were worth as well as lots of picture discs
