Not to sure if this is in the right forum, I went into my local Woolworths (UK) today (29-11-06) and was pleasently suprised to see the entire Queen studio back catalogue in the sale section at £4.97 each, it's not very often you see these CD's at this price, so if there's an album you need for your collection or even haven't heard yet!, then it could be a good time to pick up a few early Christmas presents.

I think it's really sad to see Queen-albums at that price...

They should cost more!

Why?
Most releases are 10+ years old.

But they are all classics.. And when I was about 10 years old, I had to save up money for a long time to buy them, and now they are almost for free.. I think much of the feeling goes away when you buy 5 CD's at once.

Anyway.. they are Queen-albums, they should be worth more!


...usually it's crappy-CD's which are so cheap...

Queen-albums to 4,99£ next to Best of Bruce Springsteen, that's sad..

It's a normal progression.
When they toured last year the cd's were a bit more expensive. The demand was higher.

SAD?

They should be cheaper than that!!
What are you saying?- Please don´t confuse quality with the price of the CD.

With the economy as it is, youngsters have more dificulties to buy the records.

I payed more for each Queen album, and i live in Portugal, but i think music is for everyone, and the CD prices nowadays are exepnsive as hell! To me that´s almost the equivalent to steal. Prices today, show no consideration for the fans in general. That´s why people download for "free" on the internet. People can´t afford that.

Just because Queen music is better (from our point of view), it doesn´t mean it should be expensive.

Take care

in croaita most of queen albums cost around 11 pounds
i think 5 pounds is a joke
it certinaly says something about the value they present in that particular store


She was my lover

It was a shame that she died

But the constitution´s right on my side

Cos I cought my lover in my neighbours bed

I got retribution, filled´em full of lead

were they the cardboard sleeved japan remasters UK issue, or the previous plastic cases issues.
If the latter, then I can understand them selling them cheap.

£11 for a CD in Croatia.
Is that an legitimate release or a bootleg?

You can buy the whole Queen catalogue on two pirate CDs in mp3s for 8 euros in Russia.

I had to pay like 24.99 for the standard old Hollywood Records version of Live Killers last year, when the same store was selling the remastered Wembley set for $14.99. It makes no sense sometimes, these prices :-P

This is the thing to do though, if money is an issue for you.. watch and wait for the best deals. And check around online to find the best price so you know whether you're getting the best deal.

And check out used shops in your area too. Often you can find spotless Queen discs for very reasonable prices.
