I paid around double this price earlier this year.

Given that with AutoRip you also get access to the music online (via the "Amazon Music" App/PC software) & the ability to download MP3 versions offline, buying the physical format is cheaper than buying the digital version of the same album (presently at £8.00)!
Great performer ,Soft Cell were crazy ,seen them live as well as Mark and the Mambas great performer ,good price for a lot of quality music !

Not bad collection but shame that Torch 12 inch version is not included.
Tainted Love was released closer to World War 2 than today.

Scary.

I had a similar moment of realisation this week when I went to place a pre-order for Gary Numan's new album... & noticed it was almost 40 years since I saw Tubeway Army perform for the first time.

That's been doing the rounds. Not quite sure what it means, unless you're trying to make people in their 40s feel particularly old...and why that song in particular? Why not 'Stand & Deliver' or 'Just Can't Get Enough' ?

The original version of "Tainted Love" (recorded by Gloria Jones in 1964) was released much earlier than the 1980s tracks you mentioned, of course.
£12.95 now
Noooo I spent so long reminiscing/singing the songs in my head/enjoying the comments etc the price shot up to £12.95 when I went to buy it. Oh well it's not like I don't have them all on a mixture of vinyl & cd already but it would have been nice to have them all together!
Showing £12.95 now
Yeah it's just surprising how long ago it was.
Why choose that song? It's a classic, I guess!
