At another vendor's site it's listed as "Deluxe Hardcover Edition", so very likely the "Deluxe" version of Europe and "Hardcover" version of the US are the same. I'll likely do a review of it once I get it, so there'll definitely be photos then!

Also couldn't get TS's Club Daze Vol. 1 from the record store after all, they sent me an email saying that it had been removed from their wholesaler's inventory. So I'm getting Rainbow's Rising instead, it was the exact same price (they asked if I either wanted to replace the missing item with another, get a voucher or a full refund, so I picked the first option). Then I went to Amazon and got both Club Daze Volumes 1 and 2 for a mere 14 euros. Vol. 1 was laughably cheap, less than three GBP.

 As Acolyte- I read it as regular CD "jewel case" and the deluxe that I have only found in the bundle so far, was like the AOR and ROS deluxe cardboard with 24 page booklet etc.

Fine call on the Maiden, Nupe. From start to finish. EXACTLY where I finished...although I honestly bought more, I don't really listen to Fear. That was the stopping point for me.

Just was gonna write that my latest was to compare what Nupe called the "Deluxe CD" and the US site calls the "Hardcover CD." They APPEAR to be one and the same but who knows as the US gives absolutely NO info about it. Wouldn't have even known to look had it not been for Nupe's post. Lots more stuff on the US site which I would have missed entirely so thanks for that, folks.

Sadly, I missed the autographed red / orange / black swirled autographed LPs so grabbed the clear / black autographed ones. Also just bought the hardcover CD. Was gonna get the "Deluxe CD" from overseas as it is pretty close in price and it IS often different but, what the heck, eh? Got the Nostradamus LP package well after the album came out waiting for shipment so why not do the same this time around, right? Like to match up photos / descriptions with you when they arrive, Nupe. Let's see if they are, in fact, identical. I'd be curious.

Now, about those two Glenn SG guitars that are left..hmmmm.

Just preordered Firepower from my local record store. I picked the "deluxe" CD version, which was two euros more expensive although the tracklist seems to be the same. Perhaps the packaging is a bit nicer.

Also went to the used CDs section and found the somewhat rare two-disc (CD + DVD) version of Angel of Retribution - I've been meaning to get it for a long time to supplement my standard single CD edition and finish my collection of all officially released live material. For just 12€ I think it was a bargain, especially as it counted towards my regular customer points.

To round up the order to a number which gave me a few stamps to my customer card, I also got Rainbow's debut album, Twisted Sister's Club Daze Vol. 1 and Uriah Heep's Look at Yourself (2 CD deluxe version).
Since my previous update in this thread I ordered quite a number of CDs during last spring as the record store had a number of good deals going. In order of artist, not date of purchase:

Diamond Head: Lightning to the Nations (2 CD deluxe)
Dio: The Last In Line and Sacred Heart (both 2 CD deluxe)
Iron Maiden: all studio albums from the self-titled debut to Fear of the Dark, plus Live After Death (all standard CDs)
W.A.S.P.: first four studio albums (all deluxe versions)

Yup, finally decided to break my semi-boycott of Maiden and got all the classics in one huge order (they were on a 50% discount after all).

Curious, I just looked it up. What I suspected and this confirms. Warner Brothers owns the N. America rights. Why my copy of the 2005 deluxe was never released in the USA nor was yours. Obviously, they are different. I wasn't thrilled with mine. While merely ok, it certainly was about as memorable as the interviews at the end of the re-release of the "Best of Judas Priest." Interesting, sure. Not terribly memorable, though. Yours looks much better.

Mine is what many comment here and other places as the "Rock Candy" version. It was also a remaster (some call for a head-to-head but I don't see one), has just interviews and no B-sides / extra music. Liner notes seem to be a lot more extensive compared with the above. Indeed, this is a book and a half! Very few pictures, though, which is also a comment.

So, there you have it. Well, I guess you DON'T as neither are available in North America anyway! Both were labeled "Deluxe" and are remasters, albeit with different content and even with different people doing the remastering!

Personally? I like the Dio concerts I picked up (those were cheaper too) or even the DVD, "Finding the Sacred Heart," more than the remaster.

Ahhhh. Thanks for answering, Nupe. And all this time I thought that they never remastered these albums. You learn something new everyday.

My version is the regular ol' album. Same 9 tracks, no interviews or live tracks.....only $5. A bargain price, really.

I got the 2011 Deluxe Edition of Holy Diver. It features all the B-sides from the Holy Diver and Rainbow in the Dark singles, as well as a (partial?) KBFH radio broadcast. A very good package, but quite expensive compared to the normal version.

Forgot to add my new one. Purchased today but will only arrive next week:

Suicidal Tendencies - "World Gone Mad"  (no, didn't buy the skate deck...yet )
[Vaillant 3.0] Saturday, February 11, 2017 5:55:17 PM 
Thanks for the info, Guido!

So that CD was released in 2005, huh? Universal UK? Yeah, doubt I'll find it easily here in good ol' Trumplandia - I mean, uh, the US of A.

Agree about Turbo 30! LOVIN' IT! Concert is why I bought it and I do NOT regret my purchase for a second!

I can answer the question, Vail, as I also have the Holy Diver CD. It has a bunch of interiews with Ronnie at the end. I just pulled it to find out the year ( released about 5 before his death) and find it stamped "Universal UK" - contradition in terms, eh? I got it in Spain leading me to think it wasn't released in the USA. Dunno, really.

Cool, Nupe!

Question, though, about that Holy Diver purchase. What's in that bonus CD?

Evanescence - Fallen

The 2000s kid in me wanted this album
[J.D. DIAMOND] Sunday, November 06, 2016 2:52:34 PM 
Blind Guardian's new album "Beyond The Red Mirror" (2015) I bought a few weeks ago after finally listening to the entire Lp, the album is BG's second best album under 1998 Nightfall In Middle Earth. Just an excellent album. A+ in my book.

A new album I WON'T be getting is unfortunately HAMMERFALL'S new album "Built To Last".  
Its simply TERRIBLE.

The material is extra cheesy,the lyrics are boring and 6th grade simple,sure HF have always had cheese but never to this level. The songs themselves are just bad.Possibly the worst HF album yet.

They will eventually release a masterpiece again,but not this album,that's for sure. "Hammerfail" this year. Thumbs down.
