Looks like HMV in the UK may survive after all...

    Certainly some of the stuff that I bought in the sale was cheaper than it was marked down too. Some classical discs were £9.99 in the sale (down from £22), but were actually £7.99 at the till.

    I’m probably heading into the Tunbridge Wells store tomorrow. Does anyone know if there are many cds left in their sale.

    I saw the Gregg Allman set in Glasgow, but it didn't appeal to me, although £4.99 is a great price.

    Simple Minds - Streetfighting Years [2CD Remaster] was 50% off in their Flash Sale, so I got that in lieu of a decent boxset version (I sent that back before even opening it).

    EG.

    That was £4.99 in the shop. I was hoping they'd have the deluxe of New Gold Dream in the sale.

    I think that's long gone OOP. Beautiful set, though.

    I'll be okay with 6.49 plus postage, so long as it's not bashed up...HMV packages are arriving in very battered state lately. I don't know where they send them to get that kind of mistreatment.

    EG.

    I picked up American Standard, too. What a dull album that turned out to be!

    James Taylor? Dull? Never!

    Only kidding! I like his first few albums and he's my namesake so I can't be harsh on him. :)

    To be honest, beyond a couple of the most well-known songs, I didn't know much of his stuff, but someone was telling me that it was an interesting album, and then it turned up in HMV. I'm sure the tempo remains the same through the entire 45 minutes of the disc.

    That's James Taylor for you!

    Someone told you a lie.

    It's worth checking. I visited today, and got the final Gong 2CD set for £4.99 (Flying Teapot). I've seen it in other stores, but never priced down, so I assumed it wasn't on sale like the others. They had Angel's Egg and You 2CD sets as well. I added Neil Diamond's Hot August Night III (CD plus Blu-ray) and Apollo expanded 2CD book edition for £4.99 each, and a copy of Blind Faith for £2.99.
