Various reductions on Otis Redding at Qobuz - don't know if they have fixed the problems with their payments system though (see separate thread)

I don't know which thread/problem you are referring to, but Qobuz recently made off with twenty quid from my bank account - they know it, and have stated that they intend to do nothing about it, so from now on, I don't care how cheap they are - they will be getting no more business from me.

I got King Crimson Live in Vienna high res £5.49 on 7digital. Other places are about £15. I saw after I bought it that 7digital went a bit funny on this record, and I couldn't select it, but its the same price on onkyomusic (which looks like 7digital underneath).

Its rather good as well!

Had the same issue here with 7digital then tried Onkyomusic which as you say seems to be a front for 7digital given login details the same but they didn't like my PayPal details.

This is a great set and content and not one to look a gift horse in the mouth, just after a futher preview not sure I'm sold on Jakko's vocals.

Qobuz: "The Finesse of High Resolution" Exclusive offer until May 9th. Not huge savings, but some good titles in there.

What's annoying with this compared to other offers they put on is that prices seem to be the same for all users -Sublime (and I assume Sublime Plus) plan members are not getting discounts on top as normal - I hope this is not a trend going forwards.  I've got a bad feling about Qobuz.

I've seen a few Qobuz offers that were cheaper for non-subscribers!

As a non-subsciber (because I don’t buy enough to justify), I don’t find that annaying at all!

No, but you don't gain anything either.

Sublime/Sublime Plus plan members who pay annually get 30-60% off most of the HD catalogue (but oddly nothing off if an item is available CD Quality only which has prevented me buying and getting the CD instead).

With prior offers, everyone got reduced prices so a non-subscriber would still get good deals, just that the annual plan members seem not to be getting additional discount this time around - if this continues one of the perks of being an annual plan member is reduced in value.

I’m halfway through this, and I have to say it’s magnificent. Terrific (and more) recording (utterly drumtastic too), magisterial performances, outstanding value for money for lovers of all Crimso eras.

And I think Jakko’s Lake/Wetton voice* is just fine 😉

I’d have missed out but for this heads up. Many thanks.

* as an aside I’d have loved Fripp’s plan to install Darryl Hall as vocalist way back then to have come to fruition. The Fripp produced Hall solo is a great taster of what we missed.

If this is the 5 track EP it's £4.79 on Qobuz for Sublime subscribers or £7.19 otherwise.

I take it back re Jakko's vocals - not bad at all.

Perhaps Terre Roche fronting Crimson would have been interesting given her vocals on Exposure. 

Looking around for Neil Young's Roxy Tonight's The Night recent archive release in Hi Res there are some punchy numbers on Qobuz and 7digital but Hi Res Audio have a good price with an MQA18 code discount taking the price to around £14 which is the cheapest I could find.

Strange as this is billed as an 'MQA Studio' Flac 96 download. It is certainly a Flac 96 file and plays on my NDS.

Oh yes nearly forgot what we're here for - great recording of a wonderful show. Old Neil on top form despite the darkness of Tonight's The Night.

IIRC 7Digital are selling it at 24/192 rather than Qobuz’s 24/96, which might affect the value for money judgment, depending how you value your numbers...

Any Qobuz subscribers having emails that are not relevant recently - last week I had one listing a promo for e.a.r. records but links didn;t work and titles listed are not available to me.

Today there's a Deutsche Grammophon offer and when I use the link or website there's nothing on offer - unless there's been a pricing boo-boo again and they took it down

Just shows you have to do your homework when buying this stuff.

By the way do hope your moniker is based on Loudon Wainwright song. Great cover version by Paul Jones.

It is, although I know it mostly from Big Star's cover. Me and my QB were spending a lot of time in hotels when I joined here, so it seemed appropriate.

It works, but just log in directly

Recent Roy Harper remasters on Qobuz with Bullinamingvase at £4.99

Also worth checking out is HQ and the brilliant Unknown Soldier which has the astonishing 'You' a duet with Kate Bush along with great guitar work from Dave Gilmour.

Ah, synchronicity Andy. A couple of days ago I was having a thrash of a few Led Zep tracks, which led me to play Stormcock (because of Jimmy Page’s contribution) which for me is unique. So I tried to re-acquaint myself with albums of Roy’s around that time, Bullinamingvase was one of them, but I failed to notice Is was a measly £4.99!
