Is there a difference between the posted version and this more expensive version...

I can't see one myself but maybe I've missed something.

Amazon deal is for the blue vinyl - can't see that HMV deal is for blue vinyl? Op - have I missed something?

The barcode for the item on Discogs suggests the blue vinyl, however not in HMV description. I can imagine a battle with HMV when a blue vinyl doesn't turn up!

HMV have never had stock of the blue vinyl since pre-release.

It's not mentioned on the site description either, this is for the black vinyl in my opinion.

Description from the OP is very confusing, it mentions both versions in the first 2 lines.
"Opaque Blue Vinyl 3x 180 Gram Virgin"
"3x 180 Gram Black 12" Vinyl"

Three things...

1) £25 is not cheap for this..the black can be picked up for anywhere between £20-£23 if you shop around, it's only £23 on Radiohead's official store...oknotok.co.uk/

2) The blue is independent only, and even that I picked up £23 at my local

3) The more expensive vinyl on amazon is not the blue variant, I have spoken to them direct about this, and they claim they don't know what it is, they have just pasted all the info. It states "Box Set" and if it is indeed the box set which does get released on the 7th July then it is either a pricing error, or a ridiculous bargain.

You can see the various releases on oknotok.co.uk - I think that the Amazon posting may well be a case of confusion on their part, although occasionally Amazon get copies of supposedly 'indie only' vinyl releases a little later on. The box set is £100 on Radiohead's website so I don't think it's that. Might be worth putting an order in for the Amazon one, then returning it as 'different from description' if there are any problems - Amazon cover the return postage with that option so the only cost is minor inconvenience.
Listening to my black copy atm which is perfectly lovely and was £21 on Amazon pre-order.

There is simply no way it'll be the blue vinyl. I don't think HMV can claim to be an independent record shop.

I've heard from HMV it's the black vinyl. So price is more than RRP

Regardless. Can't find it for a better price online. Sure it's 23 on the Radiohead store but the postage is a fiver.
