hot buy on john coltrane 5-disc box set

If you like jazz, you may like this 5-disc boxed set of John Coltrane's: "Side Steps", for the ridiculously low price of $11.99 (plus $1.99 shipping) at BestBuy.com. It retails for: $59.99, and Amazon's is selling it for $49.99. My copy shipped today.

Re: hot buy on john coltrane 5-disc box set

nice first post. At $12, it's worth a blind buy. Thanks for the heads up!

Allmusic givies it a 4 star rating...

My boxed-set came today, better than I expected - real handsome packaging. When I first placed my order I thought "watch this show up at my door as a single-disc cd", but oh no five disc boxed-set it is.

Re: hot buy on john coltrane 5-disc box set

wow! great find!

There are 3 Prestige box sets. This one is all the material Coltrane did for other artists' albums. Which makes it a great find for someone like myself who has way too many Coltrane albums. There's some things I don't have to go searching high and low for anymore. Careful, though, hearing a few tracks from the likes of Sonny Rollins or Johnny Griffin may send you out buying more albums


A little searching turned up the other two Prestige boxes for a decent price at FYE.com, under $26 each.

Just to make that even better,
code 15OFF50RCKT gives 15% off $50, and no code needed for free shipping on CD/DVD orders over $30.
Comes to just over $44 for both of them.

(yeah, doesn't compare to the first deal... but it completes the set.)

Re: hot buy on john coltrane 5-disc box set

The other two are plenty cheap in Amazon marketplace. E.g. you can pick up a new copy of Fearless Leader for $18.50 including shipping, and Interplay is $18 including shipping. The sets apparently don't retain much value, so I'd be careful about picking up Side Steps for resale. Amazon marketplace already has it for sale under $30.

Thanks OP!
