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.

    This has been available for years as a bootleg. Who would pay for it?

    limited edition of 1,727, they ngive away 100 as promo the rest will sell out. probably see it on ebay in 6 months for $3,000.

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

      • P T Barnum

        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

    Several of these on ebay in the $300 range.

      Ha Ha Ha
      Those are probably some of the promo ones they gave away for free.
      I guess there aren’t as many stones fans with ridiculous amounts of disposable income as I thought

      One guy is selling the box unopened that was delivered from Ticketmaster.
      Am I missing something here? Is ticketmaster the same company selling this trifle or is the guy on ebay just an idiot?

    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..
