Emancipation Vinyl Box.....Now $68 on Amazon!

The 6 LP Emancipation Box Set has been slashed to a low price of $68 on Amazon. A cool 31% Discount from the original $100 price a few years ago. All 6 'purple marble' colored LPs are flat and sound very good. Outstanding photography and packaging. Free shipping was also a nice bonus!!! Glad I waited

One third off? I think true orgers know that the REAL question is whether you an take two third off this one. Hmm … gives me an idea for a thread …

I consider this discount a 'consolation' of sorts after paying full price for the W2A deluxe box last year, then seeing it sold for only $34 on Amazon now

Agreed. I didn't buy everything from the Estate upon release and hopefully more discounts will take place for other items.

while i like a lot of this album i was thinking that in some ways i would prefer if it just kept the same romantic vibe throughout, more or less. its just got too much going on really.

In This Bed 👁 Scream

Courtin' Time

👁 Can't Make U Love Me

Soul Sanctuary

Curious Child

Dreamin' About U

The Holy River

Let's Have a Baby

The Plan

Friend, Lover, Sister, Mother/Wife

My Computer

One of Us

The Love We Make

Hehe! Yeah, me too. I don’t think there can even be any discussion of the exact or optimum configuration of the kind of discount we have in mind.

Not one list is ever semi unanimous, I think that’s part of the beauty of that album. At least an album’s worth for everyone.

Suggestion to all, you may want to wait on sets and everything at this point because they all seem to get cut big time, the Beatles BLU RAY already dropped in price and its been out a week, I have a feeling it may go as low as 50 bucks at some point. For EMANCIPATION on vinyl I'm not there for it, I wasnt really interested when it was announced as a release, though I loved that album for a time back then, it has not aged well for me.

Nobody liked the "CHEAP" version take on the old "one-disk" idea.

Such a sad, sad place.
