McCartney deluxe price-drop


Paul McCartney‘s forthcoming deluxe editions of Tug of War and Pipes of Peace were listed on Amazon UK at the unlikely price of £89.99 but, as expected have already dropped in price significantly, with further price-cuts a distinct possibility.

The current price of £69.99 for each set is at least £15 cheaper than the Wings At The Speed of Sound and Venus and Mars sets from last year (in the pre-order period) and more or less matches Universal’s store, once you factor in shipping etc. These are also now on Amazon France for just under €94 which equates to around £65.

The photo in the UK listing for Tug of War deluxe incorrectly shows the SUPER deluxe edition, although only the most optimistic of fans will expect to receive the this version with the “limited edition numbered acrylic slipcase” and “hand numbered prints”. In fact Amazon France is the only place to clearly list the super deluxe edition and they are selling it for €142 or about £100.

Just to recap, below is what the two sets look like:


Tug of War and Pipes of Peace are both reissued on 2 October 2015. There are no single CD editions at all, and all physical formats feature the bonus tracks and in the case of Tug of War the newly REMIXED version of the album. Only the deluxe editions contain the remastered original mix of Tug of War. Full details and track listings here.
