This is a good deal: $24.99 for 15 CDs from Newbury Comics via Amazon:

Sinatra Capitol Records Concept Albums

Thanks for that heads up, mjzee! I was given a few small gift cards, including one for $25, which I spent on this. It arrived today. I was fortunate to place my order the day before Amazon sold out at this price. I see that today Amazon has it for $64.99, which when you think about it is not unreasonable for 15 classic albums.

A good deal, but folks need to be sure to read the fine print- the two listed near at or near this price don't come with boxes and/or booklets.

Thanks for posting all those deals, though!

It should be illegal to sell those kinds of partial sets.

I mean, I exaggerate but I've been disappointed a million times browing Mosaics and other box sets Amazon when I see an amazing price and click to find it's just discs (and usually just one!).

Sonny Rollins Blue Note for $22 (5 CDs)

Please keep in mind that Rollins BN recordings is not a "set" in the usual sense of the word: It is a package of the 5 individual disks (with the original liner notes of each CD). The price is atractive, though.

Jack Johnson at Popmarket, note that it's a one-day sale:

Bought it, have yet to receive at least a shipping notice, for those who have already done business with them are they always so slow to manage their orders. ?

Yes - they can be very slow and don't provide any kind of status updates.

Denis

Finally made it home.

Is there a new Coupon for the Pop Market site? All the old ones are outdated.

Thanks,

I used FACEBOOK10 last week. How's that for irony? Sign off the times I guess.

I've probably asked this before but are there ever any deals to be had on Bear Family box sets anywhere out there?

Amazon/Newbury now has available more Sinatra Capitol Concept Album boxes for $24.99.

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B000BWI70W/ref=pe_53950_21210260_pe_vfe_dt1

A wonderful deal. Evidently an exclusive set offered by Capitol(in 2004) and distributed through the now defunct Borders. 14 mini-lps in a handsome and sturdy black box. Great sound.

Jelly Roll Morton 5 CD JSP $14.99

I have these 2 sets and I highly recommend. In general, I recommend JSP reissues to anyone who loves the jazz of the pre ww2 era.

Amazon UK sells it for 27 Pounds which is even a better deal, thanks for the tip.

Hoping for a cheaper version of The Smiths to come out.

Wow this seems like a bargain:

Epic 22 CD budget box set, that contains the 20 albums from Miles' time on Columbia. Includes: Kind of Blue, We Want Miles, Bitches Brew, Porgy & Bess, 'Round Midnight, Someday My Prince Will Come, Miles Smiles, On the Corner, E.S.P., Decoy, Star People, and more.

20 (or is it 22-- they can't seem to decide) for under $50! If I was missing even a 3 or 4 of these (which most of us probably aren't) I'd get this. Looks legit too.
