New Year Box Set Sales! Bargains Galore

Recommended Posts

Hi All,
 
Came into work today and they've launched a box set initiative with some excellent titles at some unbelievable prices, so I thought I'd give people the nod.
 
There's lots of titles there so pretty much something for everyone, but these in particular stuck out:-
 
Philadelphia International 40th Anniversary 10 x CD Box Set £19.99
Tabu Records 6 x CD/1 x DVD Box Set £29.99
Traxbox: Trax Records 16 x CD Box Set: First 75 12” Singles A&Bs £29.99
 
Philly Re-Grooved Vols 1,2 & 3: Special 8 x 12" Vinyl Edition £34.99
 
Limited stocks on all the above, so the early bird catches the worm etc, etc....
 
 
Happy New Year!

Personally I think they're crazy 'cos that Philadelphia International 40th Anniversary Box Set should be £50 minimum. I think it's 'cos we're running down the stock as PIR is now controlled by Sony and we're probably into what they call the 'sell-off' period. So, yep. The bargain of the century without a doubt. It's by far the most successful of all the Harmless Box Sets with incredible sales over the last 3 years. Anyone getting this for £20 can't lose! Happy New Year Soul Sourcers!

 

And a special Happy New Year to Mike and the Moderators (sounds like a record on UK Oriole), without whom such instant bargains would be much more difficult to find! Soul Source is the most valuable resource on the internet for stuff like this, so credit where credit is due!

Cheers Ian...just ordered the beat vinyl, the philly 10 cd box set and the tom remix 12s.....all done.....lets just hope they all turn up..thanks in advance mate.

 

Dynamite choices. Also the PIR Box Set additionally has Soul Source member Philly Dave's definitive PIR discography within the booklet, so when you chuck that in as well it's pretty irresistible.

Someone's dropped a bollock. Get in there!

Question for you- I was thinking of getting the Philly Int'l set.

When I clicked on the link , I went to a shipping info page which listed all European countries

and it said- not available in other countries.

   Then I clicked on the shipping info button and it went to another page that said shipping is

avaliable in the U.S..

    I'm confused .........

Are you a yank I wonder?  :lol:

 

In short, I dunno. If you want one at this price, I'll order one and ship it personally for whatever it costs. How does that sound?

That's odd. I also had a problem when I tried to pay with paypal. When the Demon page linked through, the amount to be paid went to £15.99 instead of twenty three whatever. I tried twice but gave up and paid by Mastercard instead. Weird

Aagh. Nightmare. I've been caught up in that myself. Send an e-mail to Lidia.Pinney@demonmusicgroup.co.uk and Lidia will try and sort it out. Automation's a bitch innit?  :lol:

Yep weird. I'll flag it up. These things happen in the background so I'm not always aware of what's going on elsewhere in the office. If Ben hadn't have mentioned that the PIR Box Set was selling loads I wouldn't have even registered that there was a promotion going on. When he mentioned the price I fainted in disbelief. Maybe the site is crashing due to demand?  :lol:

I had the same but seems Paypal picks up price before VAT as the actual amount on the Paypal email confirmation which follows is the higher (correct) amount.

 

Thanks for starting this thread Ian...the Philly 40th box set is a genuine bargain and a great end to the year!

 

Happy New Year all, Steve

I'm learning all the time lol.

 

And yep. The Philly 40 Box Set @ £19.99 will never be bettered in the history of bargains. It's probably a mistake. So keep pumping those orders through 'cos if it's electronic they can't argue!  :lol:

any official news from Demon?.. awaiting new stock?

 

Unfortunately I'm laid up at home with a chest infection so I can't stomp around the office and bash heads.  :lol:

 

I'll drop an e-mail to the key guys and see if all is OK. The Philly Box Set in particular has been a huge seller but should still be in stock. Gimme 24 hours and I'll report back....

Hi All,

 

Just checked with the office and everything appears to be pumping out just fine. Apparently many orders were dispatched on the 9/01/15 and they should all be with you shortly. No stock problems so please continue to order with confidence!

 

Any delivery problems should be sent to:-

Best,

I've been listening to the Philly Box for the last three days. Bloody marvelous! I'm very impressed with the judgement shown on the choice of original single mix or album mix. Singles stuck to pretty faithfully except for the ones you'd want the long version on.  :thumbup:
