Recently bought the Ronnie Lane boxset and it is superb. However one niggle, it is titled Just For A Moment so why did they not put the instrumental title track on there as well ? Such a lovely track. Otherwise……Brilliant set

Adrian

Paul Weller – Other Aspects 2CD +DVD – currently £2.98 on Amazon UK

Gary Hunter

Excellent spot, what a bargain!!

Peter

The Kinks new boxset Lola vs Powerman and the Moneygoround £51.84 amazon uk now.
Nice price drop and ordered .

Simonp2

On the subject of Macca – Violet coloured vinyl now appeared on his uk website – 3000 units only

Steve White

Taylor Swift is releasing a surprise album tomorrow. So is this why McCartney III has been pushed back a week from the original release date? I seem to remember they did something together recently so did he get word what she was doing. Gotta get that number 1.

Mike M

Interesting comment that Steve mate, Macca not wanting to go head to head with Taylor for No.1 spot. Such desperation from Macca and it seems he will resort to any tactic to nail that No.1 spot. It’s rather sad coming from such a legend.

Ian Ellis

I guess that Paul is ultra competitive. He’s still driven at this stage in his life. That attitude is what contributed to giving us all those stellar Beatle albums in less than an eight year period. Moving release dates around in a tactical way is nothing new. I’m just surprised that there is still such a thing as a No. 1 spot!

Quante

The Talor Swift Evermore cd is released on December 18th, so she might yet scupper the McCartney iii plans for number 1. I guess it depends on how much the availability online of Evermore this week dilutes the cd sales next week, and how this plays out against the volume of multiple media versions of McCartney iii + his streaming / downloads.

In days of old this might of made for a good news story, but in reality, outside of Macca’s team, I doubt anyone gives a hoot. His best laid plans for Christmas no. 1 could be sunk.

Slatts

Bit late in the day however, Amazon Italy have the excellent Shakin Stevens “Fire In the Blood” box set on offer at £65…mine arrived this morning!

Bruno

I picked this up from Amazon France – I didn’t have any Ronnie Lane solo so good place to start. It is a really well put together box and it is clear how much effort went into this. Music is great and pleased I bought it.

Chris B

Hi,

Regards the Ronnie Lane set. Please could somebody advise on how the cd’s are housed in the box. Are they contained in individual sleeves or is it the UMC scratch and cry media slit / pocket format?

Many thanks.

Ian Ellis

I picked up this set in recent days from France. Paul says the UK offer is over but I see it as still £60 in the “new and used” section. The supplier and seller are Amazon.

The CD’s are held in slits in the main book. Three at the front of the book and three at the back. I suppose it would be possible to scratch them if they were yanked out by clumsy hands operating in a hurry. However I’m a careful and perhaps even a clever kind of guy and I’ve not yet been daft enough to carelessly damage any set that is packaged thus.

Paul Anderson

Not sure if anyone has raised the question of how a “No deal” Brexit will affect orders from EU websites ( including Amazon) from 2021.

JasonC

In response to Paul Anderson:
I got an email from Amazon this week advising me that since I live in the EU (Ireland) and I’ve bought stuff off Amazon U.K. before, then I should expect to see a rise in prices due to VAT/duty in 2021. In the past I’ve ordered off one on Amazon’s mainland Europe sites and the thing I ordered shipped from a U.K. warehouse – that’s going to have to stop too.

Tony

Got the Ronnie Lane box, it’s fabulous, I see a lot of comments on here about CDs & how they’re housed in box sets and potential damage, what on earth are you guys doing to them? I normally rip them into iTunes and replace them back in the box, if they’re CDs I know I’m going back to a lot I’ll put them in a clear plastic sleeve so the box doesn’t get used a lot. The Beatles White Album box set is absolutely magnificent, I can’t believe I got it for £50. Thanks for all the deals this year Paul, what a marvellous site and great comments on here, I still can’t bring myself to watch Dark S3 after your review, might have a go during the Christmas break. Re the Brexit stuff, most times I order from EU Amazon sites it comes from the UK anyway.

Gary

Hello Paul, re: Brexit, received this from Amazon.de earlier today –
As you have placed an order on Amazon.de and selected a UK delivery address in the past, we wanted to let you know that from 1 January 2021, when the Brexit transition period ends, you’ll see some changes when you shop on Amazon.de and select a UK delivery address. These changes could include:

– VAT (VAT rates in the EU: https://www.amazon.de/umsatzsteuer) being due in the country of delivery, or your package may be subject to customs duties, taxes and fees (“Import Fees”)
– the collection of VAT, or an estimation of Import Fees (About Import Fees Deposit: https://www.amazon.de/ifd), which may result in a price change at checkout.

We will continue to accept eligible returns. If the reason for return is the result of an error (e.g. if the item is defective / damaged / incorrect), any costs incurred for the return will be paid by Amazon. Otherwise, any costs incurred for the return (including transport costs, as well as any associated import fees or customs where applicable) will be payable by the person returning the goods.

For more information about our return policies, please see the following help page:

https://www.amazon.de/returnshelp
No surprises there then………

Dean F

UK deal still there as of 8:00am today. Look under ‘New and Used’ (new, sold by Amazon). No firm delivery date though.

Colin MacKenzie

Saw that as well and it is still the same at 10.45pm. Seems bizarre that the headline price is Amazon UK at over £100 now with 5 in stock, yet you can also order from Amazon UK at around £60. Cannot recall seeing this before. (Great great set BTW)

Nathan Thomas

Thats because Amazon is out of stock & they aren’t due to get stock again until around 29th/30th December so the £100 listing from a 3rd party seller jumps to the top as it’s the cheapest one that’s actually in stock & ready to ship.

Kauwgompie

A heads up that the Prince Sign Of The Times remaster is now available in picture disc. It says it is a limited edition. Not sure if Amazon sells it, probably will.

I ordered the Ronnie Lane box from Amazon.fr on 12/4 when they still had copies in stock, ostensibly. Today my order status is still merely “preparation for expedition.” So much for the fabled Gallic efficiency…

I know, I know, French Black Friday, first world problems, blah blah blah… Having heard from all the nice folks who got their Marley boxes super-fast, it seemed potentially useful to warn against great expectations across the board. Particularly if you need something by Xmas!

Peter Stanton

My Ronnie Lane Amazon France order was dispatched from Dunfermline and within a week.

Paul Bakewell

Ronnie Lane now showing £100

MisterD

Ronnie Lane – Just For a Moment 6CD Set now £60.26 on Amazon UK.

Dirk

Hi Paul, for all those last minute Christmas shoppers the Ronnie Lane box is now on Amazon.co.uk for £60.49 as well.

David M

Last minute? 16 days to go!

Poli

Ronnie Lane box is now £60.49 on Amazon UK.

WayneUK

Ordered Sunday, arrived today. Bargain of the year. 11 CDs for that price, crazy, but not complaining. BM was another artist taken way too early.

Peter Stanton

Interestingly , if you go to Amazon France it shows as frequently bought together the BM set and the Ronnie Lane box.

The power of SDE.

Jarmo Keranen

I ordered both of them and Focus 50 Years boxset!

David

The Marley is all I have ordered from them … so it has now cost me the grand total of five Euros (plus postage). I’m thinking of emailing back and saying, look, let’s just call it free and be quits.

David

Did anyone else just get a ten Euro rebate on the Marley?

Phil

Yes, although it only seems to be valid on a specific list of DVDs and blurays, none of which interest me sadly.

Nick

Ordered BM Friday and arrived Sunday evening! Bargain. Thanks Paul.

Jonathan

My marley set shipped from FNAC to USA and shows its coming on thurs from DHL

Peter Stanton

I am pleased to say that both the Bob Marley and Ronnie Lane sets have just been delivered in perfect condition from Dunfermline.

Joël V.

Same price on Fnac.com for the Ronnie Lane box.

Chris Thomas

Careful. I’m still waiting on the White Album SDE from Fnac, over 2 weeks after it was dispatched.

SimonP2

Yep – I’m also still waiting on the White Album box from Fnac – nearly three weeks from despatch. I’ve never used them previously – is this usual?

Chris Thomas

Glad to know it is not just me Simon…..

I have exhausted all avenues to try and get a response from Fnac (no tracking number provided on my order). So the next action is to try and activate a chargeback via my bank if I haven’t received the package by the end of next week.

I’ll stick to Amazon from now on, even if the price is slightly higher!

SimonP2

Anybody got any joy with the Beatles titles being delivered from FNAC? Still not turned up here. They did send me a strange email yesterday – in french obviously – but Google translate seemed to indicate that “they had accepted my request to return and would reinburse me on receipt of the return” – but I made no request|?|

Francois

everything I have ordered from a UK shop (I am in France) took at least 3 weeks to reach me. I guess this could be the same the other way around.
In France at least, they are top notch and very good at packing and delivering

Kirk

I can add my name to those waiting on Abbey Road from Fnac ordered 13/11 dispatched 19/11 ..still waiting 14/12 and they’re not the easiest to communicate with .

Rare Glam

The Ronnie Lan set is also being offered by Amazon UK though at the higher price of £85. It also has the same availabilty date on it as the French Amazon offer. I wonder if they pressed up some more copies or more likely have some distributors returns from the US?

Colin MacKenzie

Could be USA ones as the artwork on the CD’s are as shown on the original Amazon.com ad. Artwork on the discs I previously bought from Amazon UK is different and there are various colours not uniform silver/blue which are shown on those for sale now in Amazon European locations.

David Bly

The artwork on the US Amazon site is exactly the same as on the UK site, and as ALL the copies were manufactured in the EU that makes sense. Nowit may have been a mock-up of the original set, made before the sets were actually manufactured.

I got it when it first came out and it is a wonderful set. It’s a shame that many people do not know about Ronnie’s solo stuff.

You may not know this, but for reason I cannot discern, many time when Amazon puts up picture sof EU items they use pics from Italian editions. Now these are the same discs that will be released all over except that the pics show an Italian holographic tax stamp which is required on all items sold in Italy.
You won’t necessarliy get this on your items unless they are shipped from Italy or cross-shipped from Italy to another country first. Below is a link that shows the back cover of the Townsend/Lane re-master CD with the tax stamp – too bad all of that was not on the Ronnie box set

No Woman, No Christmas

Not a big BM fan but and TBH don’t possess any Marley in any format. But he has done some fantastic stuff and I feel I need to own some……over the years I’ve seriously considered acquiring a best of…..but at this daft price, why bother!! £1.50 a CD is just nuts

Ordered yesterday (5th Dec) and apparently arriving today.

Paul, yet another fantastic tip. You are to be saluted sir as you make middle-aged men like me VERY happy
Joyeux Noel!!

TOUCH1980

I nearly bought this when it was around 30 quid & I thought that was a bargain. Could not pass this up at this crazy price. I already have the double disc versions of Catch A Fire & Kaya, both fantastic listens due to the 2nd discs being the Original Jamaican Recordings & Kaya 40 respectively. Which are both worthy purchases.
Neither of those are here as are(n’t) the bonus tracks but I think it would be churlish to complain when you have all these classic albums for less than £1.50ea.

Elizabeth Hirst

I may only listen to Marley about once every few months, but it would be icrazy not to go for that French offer. I can’t believe it lasted so long.

Lionel

Thanks Paul, 15 Euros, ordered of course!

fredpostman

Thanks for the Bob Marley link Paul. Even though i have all the individual cds this deal was one i couldn’t resist. Ordered yesterday arrived today.

Larry Davis

Ordered that Marley set…price too insanely cheap to resist…even with the high shipping cost which doubled the price, still $32US, kinda like that Barry White Love Unlimited Orchestra box from Amazon Germany I ordered a month or so ago…just saw it at Newbury Comics yesterday & they were charging $63US for it…I paid half…nice & compact….even if no bonus tracks, aren’t those on the 4CD box Songs Of Freedom?? I’m not really hardcore Bob or know his stuff top to bottom so I really don’t know his stuff too well to know what I’m missing…now that Ronnie Lane set?? I want that but have to wait at least a week before buying… expenses…hope it’s still available at that price…but at Newbury yesterday, I bought that new Amy Winehouse 5CD box The Collection…it has 3 discs not on the 4CD Frank & Back To Black box and was on sale $49.99…also saw that 7″ box 12X7 which looks beautiful but it can wait while I play with the prices…also snagged 2 RSD pieces…the Aimee Mann & Macca 7″ from a few RSDs ago, which has become quite rare…

WayneUK

Bought Bob Marley. How could you not at that price.

James Davies

I know, I ordered it Saturday… arrived today

johnny john

For those interested, I discovered (december 5th) : McCartney Tug Of War (3 CD + DVD Deluxe Edition) at 70 $ cad (40 pounds, actual UK 70). At amazon.ca. Have a good day all.

Mike M

Do Amazon.ca ship to the UK? Don’t think they do? Great deal for those who can get it though.

Stephen D.

Great tip! Ordered last night and arrived from France to York at 4pm today! Saved me £15! 7

Trev

Mine has arrived as well. Plus my Stones Sticky Fingers. Both were out for Tuesday Delivery. Bonus.

Emilio Lafarga Giribets

Ordered from Spain yesterday at 11 am and got it today at 11.

Peter cl

Mine came at 11am this morning. Wow Amazon France delivered .when I ordered on uk Amazon it said coming Tuesday even thou ordered when 1st announced

Andrew Aston

Mine has just landed as well. Wasn’t sure this would go through. Looks great. Thank you for the heads up!

Caroline

Mine’s here too. Lovely, isn’t it? Thanks for the alert, Paul!

Mark G

See, this is what happens, I go all “Bob Marley 11 cd box, for the price of two CD albums? Yeah….”

Then I come back to these comments and now I’m all “THAT RONNIE LANE BOX SET ARE YOU KIDDING ME????”

So, merry Christmas to me….

Tony C

The Ronnie Lane box set is one of the best boxes I’ve ever bought. I’d love them to issue it all on vinyl too.

Neil Robertson

Looks like this is being dispatched from the UK as ordered yesterday and arriving today! Great deal thanks for the heads up!

Derek Madden

Top notch again Paul, many thanks.

Kenny

The Bob Marley box just been delivered! Shipped from Amazon UK. Great deal, thanks Paul

Stevie T

Managed to grab one of the Ronnie Lane boxes, and it’s arriving today! Fantastic. The Abbey Road box seems to have dropped below 50 quid in the UK, from somewhere called Onbuy.com (£47.79 and free postage) that is insane!

Bruce N

I’m really glad that the Ronnie Lane boxset has turned up at a really good price for those who missed out first time around. Its a fantastic set, and one of my favourites form the last couple of years.

Peter Stanton

I ordered mine yesterday morning, but not dispatched yet. Fingers crossed.

Kevin

Yeah, that Marley deal was too good to pass up. Even shipping to the U.S., it comes to a little over $30.

Done.

Thanks, Paul!

Theacademyinperil

Thanks for the Ronnie Lane news flash! I had never ordered from a foreign Amazon before — and in general I prefer to support indie retailers — but $92 including delivery to the US for this out-of-print box was difficult to resist, especially after I checked what ebay sellers want for it ($300 or more). Thanks to Paul and SDE contributors!

David Bates

Beatles White Album and Abbey Road still €60 on French Amazon.

Chris Thomas

I ordered the White Album from FNAC in France on the back of a SDE post in November for €60 as well. Despite being despatched 2 weeks ago it’s not yet arrived…..so tempted to get a refund and get the Amazon deal instead.

zombiekev

I’d resisted this deal until now – I’ve spent too much on deals in the last few weeks and I’m not that big a Marley fan.
However, like many, I’ve now taken the plunge – as that price is really ludicrous – and maybe I’ll have become a huge fan by the time I’ve worked my way through the box set.
As always, thank you Paul for the tip.

Derek Langsford

As with the Donna Summer Encore Box, I really don’t need that much Marley, even at that price. I am finding it hard to resist such bargains, but , I can’t justify owning something that I doubt I’d listen to when there is so much else I would listen to more. And I don’t buy music has an investment to profit off later.

Tom Spanyol

Hello Paul,
This is the first time I have left a reply, but I have bought quite a few of your recommendations.
But just had to reply , I have just received the Bob Marley box set from Amazon UK for £ 30.99
and I am sending it straight back and ordered the French set, I will still be squids in even with postage.
Merci beaucoup
joyeux noel
Tomspan

Phil W.

Thank you so much Paul, was already tempted at full price, but this deal was an instant buy! Delivery scheduled for Sunday. Can’t wait to hear them all.

Andrew Abley

Cheers Paul actually give it a pass and cancelled on UK Amazon as another set of Bob Marley discs !!
For this price impossible to pass up

thank you

Steve Bliss

That is insane pricing! I’m definitely on team “I don’t need this much Marley, but this is too cheap to not buy”. Ordered, along with the Dire Straits studio box. €43 ish, shipped to the US.
