  1. Cheers. Definitely not worth a thousand (what is) and £400 is still a bit steep as for example, I got the first three MetallicA Deluxe sets for about £400. But - there are only a few albums I would do this for and it was a MASSIVE part of my youth so why not? Just need to find somewhere to put it now! Should be here in a few weeks. 👍
  2. 🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🥳🥳🥳🥳🥳🥳 Noticed it dropped to $499 again - $75 worth of vouchers and only $10 postage and I’m looking at £400 all in. Purchased!!!! Thought I would have to wait a bit longer TBH - I wonder if the form they sent after my chat to them about the price on the GNR site has forced it back down again? No matter - finally got it done!
  3. We HAVE to get Orion now - they were not playing it back in ‘99 but they are now. Ctulu from that gig is one of my favourite MetallicA performances ever. And give us Unforgiven as well!!!!
  4. AAARGH - looks like the video has been removed! Anyone know where else I might be able to hear it?
  5. Badly. Passers by would have moaned that his voice was bad and that they were furious that they had paid nothing but were still entitled to a top performance. And furious that Slash was nowhere to be found. Or something. 😂
  6. Yeah - I know there are some ‘technical whizzes’ around who can create their own stuff/audio from videos like youtube etc. Just wondered if it had been done! 👍
  7. Bumping this thread on the off-chance anyone knows if the snippets of the songs are available anywhere (i.e. the songs isolated away from the interview)?
  8. Thanks mate - unfortunately the second person who helped was able to confirm it HAD dropped but when he passed me to the pricing department they basically said ‘the price is $899’ and would not offer an explanation as to why it had jumped so much a particularly versus the official website. Just got some rubbish about cleaning old stock for new - if I was buying carrots then fair enough but what’s that got to do with a boxset!!! Will need to bide my time - ur graph shows it was low for a while and it’s a pity I’m only now able to afford it. But if it’s dropped before it may again - and will look into that keepa thing as it looks handy. 👍
  9. So got into a chat with Amazon. First they denied any knowledge of a price change. Was asked if I could prove it and they would refund the difference - I couldn’t prove it but was then passed to someone who confirmed it was $499 on Sunday - I was then told I wouldnt get the difference and should not have been offered it (I never asked - they offered it to me)! I asked if there was an explanation as to why it had jumped $400 and was given some flannel about stock rotation - getting rid of old for new - which is clearly not relevant in this case. Irritated - particularly as there was no reason for the hike. I was asked for proof of the cheaper price elsewhere so sent them a link to GNR site and they will lodge a report regarding pricing. So - apparently if the page on Amazon has a link saying ‘cheaper elsewhere’ we should select it and maybe it will get the price down!
  10. Cheers - will see what I can do. Will fire away a few messages and see what happens - if you don’t ask you don’t get!
  11. That’s really helpful. And what I feared! I see Amazon have dropped it by about $12 so maybe if I wait until 2020 it will be cheaper if they reduce it every couple of days! 😂 Being serious, I have wait this long so what’s an extra bit of waiting? Although I see they have Amazon Warehouse sales for $399 - but the information is sparse as to what packaging is not original...will maybe chuck them a message and see what I can find out! 👍
  12. Did anyone in the U.K. buy from Music Vault in Canada? I see them mentioned in the thread and they are doing the turntable deal at about £470. Just wondered how much it cost to ship to U.K. as I would need to register an account to find out?
  13. I don’t know if I can wait that long......plus I need to get saving for the inevitable Illusions set!
  14. Ha ha. Great minds think alike! 👍
  15. Exactly - the way RQ moves from one part to the next is awesome. Two very different halves but suit the song perfectly. It has EVERYTHING you would want in a song. An extremely close second is Estranged though.
  16. I should have just sorted it there and then...If I do get anything back I will give you a heads up. 👍
  17. I’m gutted - noticed on Amazon.com on Sunday it was only $499 and they were going to charge only $20 shipping to U.K. Even with import duty that was going to be between £400 and £450 - compared to the £659 on U.K. GNR site or £900 on Amazon.co.uk that’s a bargain. Monday lunchtime arrives and I’m ready to purchase....and it’s gone up to $897!!!! 🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬 AAAARRRRGGGGGHHHHHH!!!!! I have messaged them to ask if this ‘is an error’ based on the fact that the US GNR site retails at $499 (but wants to charge $350 to ship.....) and will see what they say. Gutted - but hope a similar deal appears at Easter or something!!!
  18. I know Axl takes some heat for the amount of time taken for CD etc but it’s also very clear that the Record Label politics have been a major issue too. From bringing in extra producers to interfering with the actual release and (allegedly) stopping the release of CD2 and the remix album then I do think it’s fair to say he hasn’t been hoarding stuff for years and years with no intention of releasing it. He is also on record lamenting the small discography.
  19. Ritz 88 - best audio version?

    I was put off by the fact it doesn’t have the full set list. Apparently the vinyl ‘New York New York’ is the best one available. 👍
  20. Ritz 88 - best audio version?

    Now - I know there are literally dozens of versions out there but what is deemed to be the best one? I heard a version which appears to be a rip of the #3 video source and all was good until a horrendous addition of swearing during the rant before OTGM (horrendous in the way it was done) and the chat before Mama Kin. There were a few other issues but wondered if there was a clear winner out there as best version? I gather that the #2 video is supposed to be the best but not sure if the audio has the ‘additions’?
  21. Fair enough. 1995 in GNR-land would make for an entertaining drama in its own right!! 😂
  22. As much as I want to be wrong, I can’t imagine that 4tus would be THAT open with information - let’s be honest, some GNR fans are crazy enough to try and get in there/try and record stuff etc!!!!
  23. Not seen it yet - what kind of references (I am guessing jokes around a new album being out soon or something - think the film is set in the 90’s)?
  24. Have to be honest and say the shows I have heard - didn’t notice anything wrong? Will have a listen but still don’t think all the vitriol is warranted but that’s just my opinion - I know others feel differently!
  25. 😂 - I get that people have different opinions but I just don’t see the hate/negativity being warranted? Sounds fine to me but just think the level of negativity seems OTT.
