This Week’s Box Set and Reissue Deals
UK: Kate Bush / Remastered Part 1: 7CD box – £28
I paid £60 for this back in late 2018! It’s not perfect (cover art leaves a lot to be desired, and bonus material is ‘saved’ for the Part 2 box) but Kate’s first seven studio albums remastered and repacked (as six-panel digipaks) in a box for less than £30 is great however you choose to look at it.
