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).
