david gilmour live in gdanskUPDATED Sept 20th with latest price reductions
and pictures of each version on offer

With less than a month to go before David Gilmour's Live At Gdansk is released, we thought we'd put together a price comparison chart to help you make the best buying choices. With five different versions - from the basic 2CD set, through to the deluxe 3CD, 2DVD and memorabilia set, and a 5-disc vinyl edition, there's a lot of choice. And, prices from the different retailers seem to be varying dramatically, on a daily basis. Hopefully, we can help you save some cash by shopping around!

Our focus is on the various Amazon stores, but of course there are other retailers also offering the various editions, such as Play.com, HMV and Best Buy.

One thing that is clear is the way that the same item is being sold for different amounts, so you might find that it works out cheaper to order from a different tore than your local one. An excellent example of this is the 5-disc vinyl edition, which is a LOT cheaper from Amazon France than Amazon Germany. Also, this chart should help you if you are comparing prices with other retailers you use.

  2CD version 2CD/1DVD
2CD/2DVD 3CD/2DVD deluxe 5-disc VINYL
AMAZON.COM $13.99 $23.99 $33.99 $115.99 * $92.13
AMAZON.CA  C$23.99 C$36.99 C$52.99 not yet listed not yet listed
AMAZON.CO.UK  £8.98 £11.98 £24.98 £39.98 £84.98
AMAZON.DE  €18,95 €24,97 €44,99 €57,95 €55,97
AMAZON.FR  €16,96 €22,99 €32,29 €54,66 €43,77

* Currently the best place for our US friends to secure their copy of the 3CD/2DVD set is their local Best Buy store. The chain has the exclusive on the set in the US, and their website has just (Sept 19th) dropped it to a staggering $49.99, far cheaper than Amazon.com's current price. They do sell by online mail order as well as instore, but please note that Best Buy only ship orders to these countries: US, the Virgin Islands, Guam, or an FPO or APO address. They are not able to ship internationally to other countries.

We will endeavour to keep this chart up to date, but please be aware that prices can change on a daily basis. We hope you find this chart useful! Should the price reduce after you have pre-ordered it from Amazon, they should automatically reduce the amount you pay when the item is released and you are charged for it (on despatch).

As they list the remaining versions, we will update this story accordingly. There are of course other retailers that you can choose, including our friends over at www.floydstuff.com, and at Play.com who will also be offering the various editions. As with Amazon, prices at other retailers change on a regular basis, so shop around for the best deals. We hope this chart will help you in your buying decisions, whichever retailer you choose.
