If anyone wants the other Pogues boxset ('Just Look Them Straight In The Eye') you can get it as a download for £7.49 MP3 / £12.49 higher-res.
Or you can just pick off the interesting tracks, e.g. Afro Cuban Bebop

I still can't work out if this site is legit - if it is, the artists must get peanuts in royalties. (Or, the price for a download of a box set is fair, and is only what the artists get even if you bought the physical set anyway, which is a real eye-opener)
eg. You can get the Clash Sound System downloads for the same deal!
This is a fantastic site John, as you say not sure how legit it is. The pricing strategy seems to be 'nothing over £12.49'

As a trial purchase I bought the Pistols Sex Box £12.49, downloaded @ 44.1kHz / 16 bit FLAC (ie CD quality), playing it now absolutely perfect.

Now just downloading Sound System and have my eye on a couple of The Jam deluxe editions (bizarrely The Gift Deluxe (30 tracks), Super Deluxe (59 tracks) both £12.49)

For those that don't have it the Fire and Skill box set is a total steal at this price (hopefully not literally).

Single albums seem to be sensibly priced at £9 - £10 but after the £12.49 ceiling the sky's the limit - box sets, limited editions, you name it.

There are a few Costello deluxe editions which are long out of print which I already have but are well worth a purchase if you haven't got them.

Having just bought a Sony HDD Audio player and been ripping a lot of CDs to that, could spend hours browsing this site.

'Fill yer boots' in case it closes tomorrow!

Young Ned of the Hill is one of my favourite songs by anyone, ever.
This is a great version of it:


Ron Kavana and Terry Woods did some cool stuff together.
