Some good mixes on this compilation which is worth adding to your basket to take it up to £15 so that it qualifies for free Super Saver Delivery. Long live the 80s!

"For real breadth and depth, Real Eighties uses original 7" track versions from huge hits such as Duran Duran's "Planet Earth" and Kate Bush's "Hounds of Love", plus David Bowie, Heaven 17 and The Cure, to name but a few. It combines this successfully with full 12" versions from seminal artists of the time, such as Spandau Ballet, Pet Shop Boys, The Specials, Human League, OMD, Yazoo, Soft Cell, Scritti Politti and many many more. Real Eighties offers 3CDs of hard-to-find and popular hits from the 80s, with a very credible feel."

not bad find at all
#5
Voted cold.

I have most on CD already - but even owning the CDs, its easier and faster getting them off the internet as MP3 and keeping them on a single disk or memory pen for the car than buying/ripping/tagging.

It also saves all the packaging, delivery and manufacturing processes.

I assume you're not talking about getting them legally though - and I don't really think its a fair argument to say "Voting cold because they are really easy to steal...". That said, I'm voting cold because the thread title is misleading as it should include the delivery price or mention its just a filler item...

Nice find, would never have spotted that. :thumbsup:

What a ridiculous reason to vote cold. Buying these tracks as legal mp3's would cost you a lot more than this, obviously you don't do much ripping of original cds as most are auto-tagged saving you the effort.

Going into the legalities - it appears its illegal to buy a CD then create a copy in a different format - so technically any mp3 you create is breaking the law. I believe there are plans to change the law covering this, as the current was framed long before MP3s were more than an idea.

If amazon (or whoever - who are obviously paying the royalties to the artists albeit indirectly) want to sell this - then they should offer it as a download for a lower price, as they have no delivery/product costs as such and could continue to pay the royalties and make the exact same profit - but charge less and not waste the resources and create the waste.

We all are online - so could download it.

Until more people see things this way - then more resources needlessly produce waste.

As an example - say amazon makes 100p on this - and the artists get 50p between them.

Now say amazon sells it for 2 quid as a download, they could receive a greater profit - the artists could receive a greater royalty - you pay less for buying it - there are no resources used for the various stages of physical production - delivery - storage - packaging - redelivery - disposal of packaging - and disposal of the actual product once it becomes a coaster.

Its so obvious - that to do it any other way for something that is so easy to download that it is cold.

They should sell this for less than £2.97 if you download it ???! :w00t:

You're right, they are rip off merchants charging that for a box set.......
#14
Voted Hot, Many thanks!
#15
But surely this is a non-argument as the compilation isn't legally available to download from Amazon or anywhere else for that matter and even if the tracks were available to download individually from, say iTunes, it would cost £35.55 (79p x 45).

ibiza does raise an interesting argument regarding the environment but surely it would be better discussed in a thread of it's own. I'm all for "reducing my carbon footprint" but this is environmentalism gone mad.

Nice to see some "real" 80's tunes for a change, instead of all that regular 80's tosh that you normally see ponced around as 80's music.

There's lots of other (more obscure to pop fans) bands that I'd have in there as well but P2P is probably the only way to go for that these days.

Regarding CD to MP3 conversion, I was always led to believe that you are allowed to make a copy of a CD for your own use.

I'd also assume that as you are not circumventing any copy protection mechanisms to create the MP3 tracks then you are not breaking any laws either - as long as it's for your own use?

Must admit I gave up on CD's (.wav files?) years ago (1999 or so) - there's not nearly enough media available on them to be worth bothering with....:whistling:

In theory it's illegal to make your own copy in the UK whether it's circumventing copy mechanisms or not.

However, in the real world, that would render sales of audio cd-r's, video dvd-r's, blank cassettes & videos (a few years ago) obsolete, so there's obviously a blind eye being turned..

Good deal. Just £1.93 with voucher. heat and rep left.

I'm a bit out of touch on the UK side of things after living & working in the USA the past 7 years or so but here's the US take on it:

Dos:

Ripping CDs: Only rip original CDs that you legitimately own - borrowing an original CD off someone doesn't count.

Digital Music Files: You can transfer digital music files to your own personal MP3 player providing those files have been ripped directly from a CD that you legitimately own.

Copying a CD: Only copy original CDs that you legitimately own; you can burn ONE copy only for your own personal use.


But after a bit more research it turns out that it is not the case in the UK...

One unique feature of UK copyright law is that ripping songs from a CD isn't allowed. Despite the fact that everyone does it in order to move music to their iPods or computers, the majesty of the law frowns upon the practice (and you don't want the majesty of the law frowning at you from beneath that creepy wig). That could change soon as Lord Triesman, Minister for Intellectual Property, today announced a consultation on IP reform that could make format shifting a legal right.
