It's the remastered Boots Discs plus plus plus...(and minus a bit).


Not been following close enough - what's the "minus a bit"?

Well, less (she does still appear) June Tabor than previously foisted upon us, for sure... Wink  I expect other guest appearances are missing as well...not sure if Percy is there on the '86?

I remember being shown that Sailors Life by some very zealous folks raving over it.  I really tried to enjoy it.  I really, really did.  I was thinking "what's wrong with me? Its June Tabor.....doing Sailors Life for godssake!"  

Then, one day I was struggling through my grapefruit during breakfast.....as I had done for many years.....and I suddenly realized: "Grapefruit is awful.  There's nothing wrong with me.  You people are nuts eating this stuff."  

I haven't listened to that version since!

It's amazing how things can be so much more expensive this side of the pond.  That suggests prices here will be £200+

That price, if in sterling, could have me on the, er, Skids

However, Burning Shed here in the UK are selling it at £129.99 (+ p&p)... Ordered!!!

Yes, unusually they seem to have dropped the ball on this one. As it has now appeared on Burning Shed at a reasonable £129.99 I wonder if it will change. JPC's prices are often cheaper than the UK but they rarely change after their first posting so possibly not.

Judging from the Horslips box and the Jethro Tull bookset represses, Amazon never managed to undercut Burning Shed so this may well be the best deal. Chalky's may be worth a look. I got a great deal on the most recent Joni box from them, assuming they stock it which, given they are based in Banbury I will be very surprised if they don't.

I think that's almost identical in price to the Burning Shed cost in the UK.  It's still not on Amazon here...
