Has he said why he won’t deduct the VAT? I ordered the set for the cd single, but he doesn’t seem clear (or bothered) as to which versions are included I.e. is it the Sulk US mix, is it the V2 2000 reissue promo cd single version. My guess is the cd single won’t be comprehensive anyway.

He replied to someone else's query about it - which wasn't really an explanation but more along the lines of it wasn't feasible. But no reason why. The disclaimer on the site says:
"EU SHIPPING NOTES: If you are ordering from the EU please be aware that that goods may be subject to import VAT when they arrive from the UK. The prices the SDE shop charge you do not include VAT"

Which is somewhat disingenuous as the price does include UK VAT.
Proof: I have tried ordering from SDE with a UK address and the item cost (excluding postage) is the same as a non-UK address. That's the crux of the problem.

I did buy the Tears For Fears CD with the 3 extra tracks but that was a low enough price anyway so the extra cost was just about bearable. But I'll be passing on Sulk - might get it from Amazon, depending on reviews.
I like Al Stewart, managed to find quite a few of his CDs in the used store I go to (or went to), plus the two Original Album Series sets...but I wouldn't dare go for something as big as that! I bet it looks fantastic.

Just spent the last 3 hours reading the hardback book. Really well put together.
Over the years I picked up six of his albums on vinyl, two on CD plus the three deluxe sets. Really enjoying this so far.
I have just noticed for those of us that didn't go for the Level 42 boxset Polydor Years 1981-1984 that digitally (not sure streaming) that the 7" Singles, B-Sides, 12" Singles & Mixes plus Bonus Tracks are now available. They also look to have the tracks from the corrosponding 1985-1989 sets on these as well.

I saw that set. It does look nice. I am not enough of a fan to buy it (plus, it's way too expensive) but I'm happy that those kinds of sets are still being created in the "digital age".

I don't really have many mammoth sets with 30 or 40+ CDs. The only ones I have are the Elvis Presley set that came out a few years ago, the Johnny Cash Columbia Collection and a Charles Aznavour set that I bought on sale.
A new Grace Jones compilation showed up in my Discogs recommendations…. I haven’t been able to find any corroborating info, but I sure hope it happens. Apparently due out in September.

I like that the discs are divided into her 70s and 80s eras.
Not a lot of surprises but we already have the Compass Point Sessions compilation.
Now I just need that new album or a Black Marilyn drop.
There is one Grace Jones compilation that is desperately long overdue because it still to this day, in 2022 has unforgivably never been done. Here's a clue...

I have the 3-CD Ultimate Collection which is actually quite good but a definitive Grace collection is still needed.

But, yes, a new album is more of a priority, and more Grace reissues.

I'm surprised we still don't have Slave to the Rhythm. Didn't the previous Grace reissues do well? It seems a given that there should be more.
