    Also, once you order something and it is in stock, you will not be able to cancel it.
    So make sure you really want that 86% off item. :laugh:

    I sometimes catch myself loading up my cart just because the items are so cheap.
    I then go back and delete a lot of stuff that I will probably not listen to (or like)...

    Yeah, I was panicking too because of TFF's surging prices. I'm glad you were still able to find it at an equivalent/better price.

    I did the same with Japan. Actually, I purchased it on Amazon last fall when it briefly went on sale for one day. They never canceled my order and when a new release date was announced I didn't even bother to look for a better deal. I seem to remember reading that there would only be 500 copies and in those instances securing the purchase far outweighs getting a bargain.
    Actually, here's the original article I read that stated the quantity: UPDATE: Japan Album, Quiet Life, To Be Reissued In 3CD/1LP Box Remastered But as I notice it's being sold on Target's website, it's possible they've re-thought the limited quantity idea.

    Thanks for the response.

    Yep, I pre-ordered the New Order Power, Corruption and Lies set from DD and it showed up on Amazon weeks before. I let it ride and I got it about 4 weeks after street date at my pre-order price. I figured it wouldn’t be impossible to get later so I let it coast and they eventually came up with the goods. But I think it definitely depends on the box set and all that for sure.

    In the case of the Quiet Life set, it was already in stock at DD so I figured I was safe to grab it there but yeah, pre-orders are always a bit dicey with them, even though it is the biggest distributor on the planet. I don’t understand it, but that’s how it has worked out so far...

    As an estimate of value, Discogs indicates the combined "Median" value of these 11 LPs is:

    Value: Min $145.36 Med $190.74 Max $266.15

    So these are indeed a bargain, and every one is an LP that I'm pleased to add to my collection... Well, I guess I'll have to give the Perry Farrell a listen first ... :laugh:

    Truly this is one of the purchases that years from now you can look back at with pride! Fantastic haul!

    EDIT: well except perhaps the Perry Farrell, but you can let us know how that one goes I guess...

    Not a Deep Discount item, but a Popmarket listing, over at Discogs.com.

    The 2019 Record Store Day reissue of A.R. Kane's LP 'New Clear Child'. This was supposedly limited to 500 pieces? Surprised to see it discounted now.

    They show three copies in stock (with three different listing IDs) at $3.04 each + $2.98 shipping. Total $6.02.

    A.R. Kane - New Clear Child: LP, Album, Ltd, RE, Mil For Sale | Discogs

    One Amazon review reads "The great A.R.Kane's often-dismissed third album pales in comparison only to the band's previous work; taken on its own merits it's a lovely little dreamy pop record not unlike similar-era releases by, say, Saint Etienne, with especially evocative lyrics and nice production. (See also Rudi Tambala's subsequent releases as Sufi for comparison.) It's just that earlier A.R.Kane records, particularly 'Up Home', 69, and i, are more on the order of Sgt. Pepper's or Bitches Brew or Tago Mago, Joy Division's Closer, Cocteau Twins' Treasure, MBV's Loveless - monumental."

    Yeah by far my least favorite A.R. Kane album but still well worth that price. Thanks for the tip! Not too long ago there was a Sufi EP in the Bin at DD as well—I already owned it but it would be worth checking to see if it is still there.

    The Perry Farrell is pretty good! It's much more "pop" than Jane's Addiction, which I don't mind at all.

    There are a lot of musical textures and ideas weaved throughout the album. Every minute or so, there's a significant musical texture change: strings, electronic flourishes and effects, female vocal choruses, 70s funk guitars, large drums propelling grooves, etc. It's produced and co-mixed by David Bowie's frequent collaborator Tony Visconti. It is short; 9 songs in about 31 minutes.

    For $6.08, I don't regret the purchase. However, if I'd paid $15-20, I might be a little disappointed, because this music doesn't strike me as very "enduring," at least not on first listen. It's enjoyable for 1/2 hour though.

    According to the tracking provided by DD, the order with my 2 Leo Sayer box sets is now in Dieppe New Brunswick. If it was shipped from the DD warehouse in Kentucky (about 600 miles from me), that means it will travel roughly 2400+ miles to get to me. Delivery date is marked as "delayed". Hope it makes it!

    Funny is that was my first of 4 orders from this go round, 2 are already here and the other 1 is scheduled to arrive tomorrow. Leo wants to hit the road and take in the sights before he settles down!

    Exciting story ahead:

    Months ago I put 7 Year Bitch's Gato Negro in my cart on a rarely-used macbook when it showed up in the bin for $8.48, but there wasn't anything else I wanted so never ordered. When there was some other stuff a week or so later the Gato Negro was back up to $26ish so I forgot about it. Then when the recent reload happened I grabbed that macbook and quickly put several new albums into the cart and checked out. Note: when I started to check out only the new albums were in the cart. But when the order was completed, Gato Negro was listed in the order summary at $8.48. Whatever, I figured it wouldn't be shipped and sure enough, when I got the shipping confirmation for the other items it wasn't included.

    Well, I'm sure you can all guess what just happened. It just shipped for $8.48. And, even more confounding, the album doesn't even show up on DD.

    The bin, the mysterious bin, unfathomable by mortal minds, its warehouses slipping between non-Euclidean dimensions and across alien planes of existence.

    Ready for it to get REALLY spooky?!

    I did the EXACT SAME THING with that EXACT SAME ALBUM. I stuck it in my cart and never got around to ordering and then saw the price jump. Only I then removed it from my cart and never saw it again. Which sucks but TBH I really only wanted it because of the Jaime Hernandez cover art (HUGE fan of Los Bros). I mean, I like the band as well but the attraction was for sure that big, glorious cover to me LOL.

    Anyway, glad you landed it and at the right price too HA.

    Ha, the bin unites people in unforeseen and occasionally terrifying ways.

    I're read more about the band than listened to them and I know that album is not highly regarded but yeah, the cover is cool and for $8 why not.

    I think Leo has put a hex on these boxes. Three orders that I placed after this one have already arrived. Meanwhile, the shipment with Leo (and Showaddywaddy, for goodness sake!) started out in Los Angeles and is now sitting somewhere in Missouri. I'm in San Diego!

    Yeah she's a keeper! I did show her those Leo Sayer deals as an indicator of just how ridiculous the sales were....maybe that helped my cause!

    Does it help to serenade her with a verse of "When I Need You" as well? I'm asking for advice...for a friend.

    She's more of an 80's fan so I go with "More Than I Can Say" personally.

    Ha! I did the exact same thing..."only $3.99, I had to buy it!"

    She didn't really pay attention to the box size and that there had to be 10 other items in there :).

    And actually, I could pick Endless Flight out of a lineup and know the "Dancing" song but I was shocked to hear two other 1970s AM radio staples on side one. The album, and the rest of the box, is definitely a keeper.
