That bloody big SAHB box


Paid £110 for mine. Bloody great it is, get in quick. Thoroughly recommended.


14 discs of Alex Harvey.

God forbid.

I did order the Cream set though. I love those albums more with each passing year, and I only have them on original vinyl, so these remasters are very welcome at that price.

The Cream set, which just arrived, is a decent looking item - sturdy gatefold sleeves, sturdy outer box.

Like Mr shed-bear, I grow to love these albums as time trickles through the restricted glass tube, so it's good to have such a concise package (Vic Flange died for my sins ...)

I saw that too, very tempting... trouble is, I simply can't stand Marc Bolan! :lol:

I nearly pushed the button on that one too, until I thought about the Bolan box set that's sitting on my shelf that barely gets played...

Two albums worth having and eight coasters for £20? I'll pass.

I've been humming and ha-img about that T-Rex box for ages but I finally went for it. Even though I know half of it probably won't ever get played.

Oh it is great
And well worth 20 quid.

The bonus discs are a bit random though

Velvet Underground Matrix recordings for just over £20 on amazon:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Complete-Matri ... 740&sr=1-2

Don't hesitate - it was originally £45, then fell to just under £30 and has held there until yesterday. I got mine today - it's fantastic. For a fiver a disc?

Heaven.

Edit: gone back up to £27 again.

16 Lou Reed Albums as hi-res downloads for £80 (15% this weekend as well)

It seems like a bargain, but are 14 of these any good?

Plenty of good stuff once past the obvious - New York and Magic and Loss latter-day highlights.
