    Also, why is the price going up so much?

    Did they accidentally include something they shouldn't have, like the PF box set, or is it the mistake (error) in the pressing that everyone thinks will become collectible or is it simply that there were only 3000 made?
    The only difference between the Blu-Ray and the 4 DVDA-V releases is that they accidentally included "Abaddon's Bolero" amongst the "Trilogy" bonus tracks instead of its proper place as the final track on the album.
    Other than that, everything is exactly the same between the Blu-Ray and DVDA-V releases.

    Also, I think the (current) expense is down to the fact that they only pressed so many copies.
    I'll have to recheck and see which # I have!


    Surround yourself with the best.

    Coming soon in 2017: "Eye in the Sky" (The Alan Parsons Project) and "A Farewell to Kings" (RUSH)!
    Already released: "Black Sea" (XTC); "Songs from the Wood" (Jethro Tull); "Misplaced Childhood" (Marillion); "Three Piece Suite" (Gentle Giant) and "Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band"

    I wonder if anyone is actually buying it at these prices. I don't recall any other box set more than doubling in price after release. I wouldn't pay $350+ for this even if I didn't already have the DVD-A's. Maybe it's just a temporary spike.

    I would guess that the price has spiked because most of the usual retail outlets like importcds....deepdiscount...and bullmoose don't have it right now...the price range for those...when in stock...goes from $140 to $150...now elusive disc has it for $179.99 HERE...the indications are that Bullmoose will have it in stock soon and they are at $150...

    Amazon US currently shows two units in stock for $180.

    Certainly it will sell out, like all previous surround individual titles.
    The churning of stock and price fluctuations reflect that.
    Cast your dancin' spell my way, I promise to go under it...

    Hi:

    First I don`t have any of the individual DVD-A release. In Spain I have found the box in stock for 109 €.
    The Emerson, Lake and Palmer 3 disc (2CD + DVD) release is about 35 € in Ebay,
    The Trilogy 3 disc (2CD + DVD) release is 26 € in Amazon.es.
    The Tarkus 3 disc (2CD + DVD) release is about ¡¡130 €!! in eBay.

    I think it's worth the box in comparison.

    In El Corte Ingles. The price is 142,99 € but now you have a 25% indirect discount. Maybe they cancel my order (it's not the first time it happens with them)
