  1. Okay, I’m still confused about the Grace Jones re-release. About a month ago, I noticed that the 2-disc Deluxe Edition listing had seemingly vanished from Amazon (US), and I just assumed it had been delayed/cancelled yet again. So I was surprised when I saw the entry here on TSD, but when I click the link above for the Amazon US 2-CD version, the Amazon page says it’s a single-disc release which streets on May 6. The Amazon UK link however is described as a 2-CD set released today. So is it now a UK-import-only item, or does Amazon need to fix their product info?

    • I too am confused. There shouldn’t be a Amazon US link. Even has a different Label name, Disc count is different and the cover is different (no Deluxe on cover).

      • Not confused anymore. Watching the Prmo video for this release shows a One CD Release with the 2 CD/ 2 Vinyl. This link should be removed and changed to one CD. I almost bought the wrong version with this link .

  2. I ordered the 2-CD set from Amazon UK, and it shipped on the release date. Like you, I saw no mention of the Deluxe on Amazon US, so I gave up and ordered it from the UK. I’ve noticed that a lot of these Universal DEs are–at least intitally–only available overseas. That’s where I’m increasingly ordering them from.

  3. If I bought the single disc version from Amazon US, I’m not going to be happy.
