I had in my basket on Amazon AU from a third party seller at AU$58 + shipping. Checked the LP product information on Wednesday and it was down again to AU$20 form Amazon AU so I snagged it. It's arriving today. Happy times.
I've been enjoying my copy. Just another compilation, but it has a good tracklist and flows very nicely. Twenty bucks well spent!
And now it's back to $58! But on the bright side, I am taking my dog for a walk down to Storage King shortly to pick up my ELO vinyl parcel. Secret Messages (2LP expanded), Out Of The Blue (2LP blue vinyl) and Wembley (3LP). $132 all up for 7 LP's, with free shipping.
I hope the neighbours enjoy some ELO haha!
This arrived from BMG today. The final piece of the puzzle
I'm still waiting for mine (my second for my second set!) but this gives me renewed hope that it may still arrive.
I’m hoping for a similar bargain basement price on the Arthur box. There’s only a handful of tracks on it I haven’t already got. The “Lost Dave Davies Album” is marketing BS, as all the tracks have been previously released. I waited a long time for the photo for my 2nd box, but it turned up about a month ago.
I'm also hoping for a price drop on the Arthur box for the same reasons as you, but Amazon.au don't even seem to be stocking it (only available via 3rd party sellers so far) and JB HiFi rarely discount box sets beyond 20%, so I'm not holding out much hope currently. Perhaps from an Ebay seller or Amazon US.
Amazon Au are not currently stocking the new Neil Young or Van Morrison albums as well as no Abbey Road or Arthur deluxe sets.
Hopeless. Why do they bother at all.
Village Green had a big marketing campaign in Australia (they advertised it in AM radio) which obviously failed miserably, no one's going to take the same risk with Arthur
Mine has just arrived - I was secretly hoping to also get the VGPS badges that some people received with their photo, but no luck. But I realise that shipping badges to Australia would push up their postage costs, and they're already doing the right thing with the photo!
I mentioned the metal badge in my mail but they ignored it
It was worth trying
I also didn’t get the badges.
No badges for me either but they probably would have damaged the photo so ...not bothered.
Good price on this 2011 comp which includes the entirety of Dave’s much hyped (alleged!) “lost album” from the Arthur box!

A low preorder price for Nick Cave Ghosteen vinyl $27.99 https://www.amazon.com.au/Ghosteen-Nick-Cave-Bad-Seeds/dp/B07Y9D3XGD/ref=mb_oe_l. It’s a preorder so delays and cancellations possible but I actually received my last two preorders less than a week after release!
Good one. Pre-ordered.
