Where’s the Learning? The Rolling Stones Release an $845 Box Set…

These will probably sell out, but does that make it worth it?

Here’s the ‘Brussels Affair‘ mega-package, which includes a once-rare recording of the Stones playing Brussels in 1973 (on vinyl), a tour lithograph, a Seiko lip-and-tongue watch, vintage packaging, even a book with Jagger’s signature.

The base price starts at $750, with the minimum shipping and tax putting the price tag at $845.

    Well, by definition, if it sells, it is worth it to the person who decided to pay the price.

    People buy a lot of things I might consider a waste of money, or too high-priced.

      Just being cynical here, but are those limited numbers (ie, 1,727) generally just a fiction to create a sense of urgency/exclusivity?

        That’s not being cynical.
        The second “limited edition” will not have Mick’s signature and the watch will be Timex.
        They will say “The first edition sold out in just three weeks!!!” “Get yours while supplies last!!!”
        and so on…

          I like this type of initiatives, however there is a high risk taken initially given the cost and complexity for manufacturing and releasing this type of premium product.Yes there may be a second round of ‘special limited edition blablabla…’.See this as a trial, if people are ready to purchase this I guess the label would advise at a later stage.But there is a significant risk taken initially of it does not sell.JTV Digital – affordable digital music distributionhttp://www.jtvdigital.com

    Great blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally confused .. Any suggestions? Thanks a lot!

    Good – I should definitely pronounce, impressed with your website. I had no trouble navigating through all tabs and related information ended up being truly simple to do to access. I recently found what I hoped for before you know it at all. Reasonably unusual. Is likely to appreciate it for those who add forums or something, site theme . a tones way for your customer to communicate. Nice task..
