[Amazon.ca] The Kinks Or the Decline...50th Anniversary Deluxe [CD + Vinyl] ($52.82)

Found this while browsing through Amazon. There are quite a few extras including a book. This is PRE-ORDER

**Update**: As pointed out, this set does not include the original as a vinyl. It is on CD along with 4 reproduction singles. At the time of posting, there was not much information on Amazon's page that indicated it. The first link I posted up was a big vague and gave no indication that it was a CD box set aside from stating there was a CD and vinyl version.

Artist: The Kinks

Album: Arthur Or The Decline And Fall Of The British Empire (Vinyl)

Release date: Oct 25, 2019

Originally listed for $110. I had a look at the 3C and that's what it's showed.
Here's some more info on it:

This is a better description of what you get in the package:

Not sure how inflated this price is but from my prior purchases of these box sets, $52.82 is a fantastic price. Anyways, thought I would pass this along to any fans or collectors out there.

Originally listed at $110? Wow. Wonder how many they sold at that price? (And just for the record, not sure I would pay $52 either)

I was a bit shocked at that original price too. But it's a preorder so if it drops you're guaranteed the lowest price up until release day. I was a bit hesitant on the package but $52 for the vinyl plus a few singles, solo album, and a book with a bit of history, it wasn't too bad. I had to do a bit of research to see what was included in the vinyl package. The CD version has a ton of unreleased tracks listed. There is a cheaper version of just the reissue vinyl if you didn't want all the extras.

If you collect music or are a big fan this is a pretty decent price. Considering a deluxe reissue of some Metallica vinyls are easily over $100.

Just be aware that the full album on vinyl is NOT included in this set. 4 CDs, 4 vinyl singles.

I found a more complete description vs the one I originally put up. I will update the original post and edit the title as well. On Amazon's website it was unclear and there was hardly any info when I came across it.

The Amazon description states 15 discs.....I'm guessing that's an error.

Likely, Amazon's preorder description page changes often or isn't updated. It happened with the pre-order of Volbeat's live Bluray. I had no idea of the version was gonna be playable on our players until the band updated the info on their site.

I saw there was a link to the kinks website and have updated the original post to include it. The actual vinyl is a separate purchase but priced at $31. So this being the price it is, it's a good deal if you are an avid fan and collector. If not, grab the 2 CD version.

Some real obscurities even for The Kinks.
NO Apeman, Ya Really Got Me, Dedicated Follower of Fashion or Lola?

Just read an interview with Ray and he said they've been writing together again. The plan is for a new LP and tour as long as Dave and Mick Avery can bury the hatchet.

I pre-ordered it at $110. (It lists at $130 CDN on the band's website, with a bonus 7" single of Australia).
Definitely not complaining about buying it at $52 now.
