Sick of all this vinyl? Let’s hear it for the humble CD! So while ‘Prime Day’ was a little bit ‘meh’, Amazon in German now have a better-than-it-looks 3 items for €25 CD promotion, which, if you shop carefully, can reward you with some great multi-disc sets for a bargain price.
As usual, this is about digging around, ignoring the dross, and spotting the gems. But why not, sit back and let SDE do that work for you? Below is a list of fine albums, for all tastes, – and suggested bundles – that will help your €25 (£22 or $29) go quite a long way. The discount should work as long as you purchase in multiples of three. (By the way, you can change the language on Amazon Germany by hovering over the ‘globe’ symbol just below the magnifying glass icon on the right of the search bar!)
Of course, if you can access the full list of products in the offer right here, for your own ‘research’ purposes, but however you do it, here is a great opportunity to pick up some recent-ish releases (Sting, St Vincent, Steven Wilson etc.) or plug a few holes in your collections of the ‘big’ names (Beatles, Stones etc.). Enjoy…
