    Price is good but $100 postage without any taxes is very steep for me.

    I don't buy as much from Europe anymore for that reason. Unfortunately, high postage is global now and doesn't appear to be changing anytime soon. :(

    I just checked to see how much that Beatles box would cost to ship to Miami. $178.99 + $58.97 shipping = $237.96 Total. Still steep but not a bad deal for domestic.

    Strange that it's nearly $60 shipping for you, but I could have shipped to me in AZ for $16.62

    That is strange...and a great deal for under $200.

    They only offered me priority shipping. What were your shipping options?

    I was offered either 'priority mail (1 -3 business days)' or 'priority express mail (1 business day)' ... the priority express mail option was $100.46, which I would never do.

    I wasn't thinking about ordering this but added one to my shopping cart because I was curious about the shipping charge. Same price for me too and I'm in New York.

    I noticed that the Half Speed Mastered releases are available on the UMv site here in the US.

    Interesting. Each one says only 250 copies will be available.

    I read that too. You would think at least a thousand each for these titles. Especially the Stones and Cream albums.

    Yes it is.

    if that's true, for the US based store, then there's only 249 (or less) Exiles available now ...

    If that is 250 copies WORLDWIDE I wonder if that even justifies the cost to press them and all the advertising.
    Any thoughts on this? Who has an answer.

    I thought about ordering Disraeli Gears but it's almost $52 with shipping.

    Exile ordered....These will go fast as soon as the word gets around.
    250 is super limited.

    Quite doubtful that 250 were pressed. Probably 250 available through Universal Music in the US.

    I wouldn't buy any of this stuff just because you think there are only 250 copies available.

    I agree with kwadguy. It's probably 250 available through Universal Music in the US.

    Serge Gainsbourg "Integrale" 20 CD set is down to £35 on Universal and also Great Offer Store although only good if you are in the UK and maybe buying other things.

    Yeah, it's $50 for US customers at Great Offer Store, but shipping is an additional $25. There are better deals to be had from any one of several Amazon sellers.
