May 26th sees a 4xCD + DVD + Blu-Ray super deluxe edition of Sgt Pepper's. Silly pre-order price of £140 on Amazon UK at the moment, £110 on HMV and about £85 on Amazon Italy. which will probably be what it costs universally by the time of release:
It's a long time til Santa comes round again so maybe raiding the Kids college fund will be the only choice!
sounds like a goodie Paul lotta cash for 4 cd's/dvd..bout time the Stones did a special on Satanic album now that would be interesting
Yes, these super deluxe sets are never cheap initially, but they do drop quite dramatically after a while quite often. Worth keeping an eye on Amazon after it comes out as they seem to get supplies from Italy on a lot of things that are less than half price! There is also a two disc edition which would be a lot cheaper.
I don't know how the Stones would feel about Satanic Majesties now given the slagging it got at the time and which seems to have echoed down the ages as some kind of embarrasing attempt at psychedelic wagon jumping though it's better regarded these day. I really like it.Plus of course The Stones have no ownership of or say in the re-issue of their Decca era material.
Or you can go for the Japanese edition of the super deluxe which coms on SHM (super high material) discs and has a 3D diorama of the front cover that looks pretty cool. £130 from CD Japan direct or £250 in UK!
