About this deal

Quiet Life: Deluxe Edition Box Set [Special Offer Over 50% Discount - 300 Copies Available]

+ Alternative mixes, b-sides, singles, rarities and live material – including the sought after ‘lost’ Live at Budokan show from March 1980 previously only available as the 4 track EP ‘Live in Japan’.
+ Newly restored original album artwork, new liner notes with contributions from band members and original producer, rare and unseen photography and memorabilia.
Japan’s breakthrough record Quiet Life was released in both 1979 and 1980 is uniquely fitting for a band who were about to step out of the glam rock, post punk shadows of the late 70s and deliver an as yet genre-less record that would come to define the 80s.
Quiet Life was the third, final and most successful release on the Hansa Records label. A forerunner for the alternative/new wave sound of the new decade, the album would become one of the great classic British albums.
The record is now the subject of a major new reissue featuring a brand new Abbey Road half-speed remaster of the original album.

    Just had my order with them cancelled, claiming the price was wrong. A pity, I'd already cancelled an order elsewhere to these guys :-(

    This thesoundofvinyl site seems to be implying that it's new/pre-order and limited edition.

    It's neither.

    It's been out for a while, is cheaper elsewhere AND has bad reviews.

    If you have a link to this deluxe box set, can you give me a link. I can only see the CD or album version.

    Mentions "Delivery from €19.63" on the page, I don't have an account so don't know if this sorts itself out when you get to the check out or not.
    Are you buying it from abroad as it’s a UK based website. When I bought it there were two postage options of £3.95 and £6.95 (I think) for priority.

    Ordered, thanks. I wanted this anyway but couldn't justify the full price so this is brilliant
