It’s proving to be quite elusive in some parts of the world, this five-disc deluxe set.
As is hopefully now clear, Best Buy have an exclusive deal to sell this in the US. If you’re in the US and you want the five-disc, for simplicity’s sake, it has to be Best Buy.
The following countries (I omit Europe deliberately as I’m only covering Sony regions for now) have ordered the five-disc version for local retailers, so it should be possible to find it locally (that’s possible, not easy): Australia, Brazil, Canada, Hong Kong, Israel, Japan, Korea, Mexico, New Zealand, Taiwan and Thailand.
The vinyl should be available in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Hong Kong, Korea, New Zealand, Taiwan and Thailand.
If city stores show no signs of stocking it, please ask why. Someone, somewhere, should be able to order it for you.
If your country is not listed, then you will need to order it.
Anthill can deliver the five-disc set around the world – just not to the US.
Here’s one for Australia, with a nice breakdown of the package and its contents.
The guitar pick/plectrum, by the way, is the same size (354), shape and material (celluloid) as the ones that David uses. Tortoiseshell in colour with gold print, one side has ‘David Gilmour – Gdansk’, with Wireman on the reverse.
Anyway, if you know of a store or site anywhere that is taking pre-orders for the five-disc set, and can deliver to the music world’s oft-forgotten regions, please let us know.
