Seconded. Will there be a US release? If not then importing it will make the already extravagant price that much harder to come up with.


I don't know but if it isn't on Amazon.com, then maybe not. Which would be wrong for USA fans.

Just order it from Amazon.co.uk. When you do they drop the price for US customers so it doesn't end up being all that much. I do it all the time. I'll add this in my cart and tell you how much it will be.

£95.98 Version

items: £79.98
Postage & Packing: £3.08
Total before VAT: £83.06
VAT: £0.00
Order Total: £83.06

$112.33

£256.16 Version


Items: £213.47
Postage & Packing: £3.08
Total before VAT: £216.55
VAT: £0.00
Order Total: £216.55

$288.69


Actually your price for the £256.16 version is pretty damn good because it's saying $203.05 right now.

The Amazon £256 version is the SHM-CD version from Japan with no other difference - why would anyone buy that rather than the £95 edition?!?

Still out my budget. I will be very dissatisfied and disappointed if this will not be released over here. What would be the reasoning for that?!

It's an expensive set! The new R.E.M. is a much better set IMO and it's a hell of a lot cheaper. It's 3CDs and 1 Blu-ray.

Commemorating the album’s 25th Anniversary, this remastered Deluxe edition boxset features previously unreleased material, including 20 never-before-heard demos, and the previously unreleased tracks “Mike’s Pop Song” and “Devil Rides Backwards.” A Blu-ray disc offers the full album (with bonus track “Photograph” featuring Natalie Merchant) mixed in Dolby Atmos, plus a high-resolution master of the album, music videos, and the original 1992 EPK. Also included is Live At The 40 Watt Club 11/19/92 – a live set performed in R.E.M.’s hometown of Athens, GA.

Price: £74.39

Items: £61.99
Postage & Packing: £3.08
Total before VAT: £65.07
VAT: £0.00
Order Total: £65.07

$87.01

That's cheaper than you can get the domestic version on the US Amazon site!

$95.38 after tax!

Wouldn't it be kind of dopey to not release it America when this was their big breakthrough album over here? Isn't that one of the themes of the DVD? Even $112 for this package is pushing it. I suppose if I cared about Vinyl I could talk myself into it but, really, I only care about Disc 2. I hate to say it but it won't be difficult to get disc 2 once this thing drops. For free. They had three choices. Make it affordable so you just can't refuse (Imagine if the sticker was $59.99), release a non-LP cheaper version or price it so high betting there are enough collectors, completists and diehards with disposable income to plunk down top dollar so paltry sales still pay off. They chose the latter. Time will tell if it was the right one.

Just about any of the other big album sets coming out this year are much better and a hell of a lot cheaper.

True, they will probably save the stuff people really want for the 50th anniversary edition. Of course they will probably charge $500 for it. :roll:

It would be patently stupid for the box set to NOT get a US release for the reason you stated. Also by using that logic "The Game" should have gotten something similar as I believe that was their biggest studio album here hosting their biggest singles.

This just shows me Queen have no long term planning. It's like they might have vague plans a year in advance but that's all.

Plus I don't wanna hear any fans parroting Queen's stand on support for the album from their pathetic excuse for dropping SYW and It's Late from the US tour as people not reacting favorably to them. YouTube videos show plenty of support based on crowd reaction.

Just seen the advertised Emerson Lake and Palmer Box set...'Fanfare' in fact there are many superior products available on the market ( or to come ) and even though i have ordered the very expensive NOTW box as this is still one of my all time favorite albums and before anyone comments nobody forced me to purchase this and i had a choice i still can't help that nagging feeling that we have all been a little bit let down :(

Have resigned myself that this may be my last Queen purchase unless future content improves significantly.
Live killers holds a special place in my heart and even now still enjoy listening to this album so i really hope that if they are looking at offering a box set in the future they don't f**k that up as well...

Have you found it cheaper on Amazon UK? All I’ve been able to find is the £109.99 version on there, which is roughly the same as $149 based on today’s exchange rate. Plus you’d still have to account for the shipping from the UK even if you have Amazon Prime, no?

No. Not now. When it came on it was like 84....then I saw it suddenly for 78 (or whatever it was) so I quickly ordered it then knowing that I get the lowest price from whenever I ordered. I finished ordering and went back to the page it had already jumped back up to 89!


My total was after shipping, etc. it was the grand total

I was lucky.

Ah, got it. Glad you were able to snag it for that price when you did.
