deal of the century?

hey everyone

well, with the splendid news that Duran Duran are on their way here for a tour in December, i thought i'd share with you a recent purchase of mine.

behold, a limited edition (mine is marked number 158) box set of Duran Duran's first three albums. they come in "replica vynil" packs inside a lovely black box, and the Rio disc is an "enhanced CD", featuring videos and what have you.

and how much did i pay for this set? 1p. yep, one pence in British Sterling money! i love amazon marketplace!

the deal with it was that it was used as part of a window display in a store. the discs had never been touched, and the only problem was some slight damage to the bottom of the box, pictured here!

wow! not sure i have ever had that good a deal before! the packaging is as beautiful as these pictures suggest! as for the albums, well, their self-titled debut always gave a hint that they were destined for greatness, Rio is one of the greatest albums of all time, and Seven & The Ragged Tiger has New Moon On Monday on it, but little else. ho hum, 2 out of 3 isn't bad!

as for the tour in December, well, it will be ace if Michele & I can go and see them, but it looks rather pricey at the moment! might have to do some saving, which shouldn't be too difficult if i can keep landing deals like this one!

be excellent to each other!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
