The Mailman – Def Leppard & The Winery Dogs

After a really long week at work, it was so nice to come home yesterday to have these two gems waiting on me.


First up, The Winery Dogs: Special Edition Dog Years – Live in Santiago & Beyond 2013-2016.  This 5 Disc special edition includes The Live in Santiago concert on Blue-Ray & DVD as well as a 2 CD set of the show.  Also included is The Dog Years Bonus EP on CD.  Not a bad little set and with coupons and a small gift card I had, this only cost $7 and some change.



And what I have really been waiting on the, the Def Leppard 30th Anniversary Edition of Hysteria.


This set includes 5 CDs, 2 DVDs, 4 books and a poster as well as a very nice box to put it all inside.  The CDs are the remasterd Hysteria album, 2 CDs of B-sides and remixes, and a 2 CD set of the In the Round, In Your Face concert.  A 2 DVD set of music videos and documentaries on the album is also inside.  There are 4 books including  a replica of the European/UK Tour book from the Hysteria Tour, The Big Book of Hysteria, a Ross Hoflin Photographic Book and a Discography of all things Hysteria.  Lastly, a Poster of the Album cover.  Not a bad little haul.

This was a little pricey.  When it was first available, it was $120 and then the price dropped on Amazon to $106 and I preordered it.  Before I got it yesterday, the price dropped to $75 and that is all I was charged.  For me, it was worth it, but I think it is missing the book “Animal Instinct” and maybe a disc or two of demos or unreleased material would have been nice and a more complete set.

Four of the cases for the CDs make a nice picture of the album cover when placed together.

And lastly, the Box Set had this little message inside…


I think I am in for a very enjoyable weekend.  If you don’t hear from me, now you know why!!!

  1. I think its safe to say you have a few hours of listening coming up!
    Both of these look real slick and it’s cool to see that Lep went all out for this box set!

      1. True..
        I wish they would deluxe the first two albums…There has to be something kicking around somewhere in the vaults…
        C’mon Joe dig around will you!


          1. I wish they would have worked a little harder on the Slang Deluxe instead of having different versions of songs on that album..
            Include Live stuff from the era etc…mix it up

  2. I don’t know much about them Winery Dogs, but the Hysteria set looks like a treat for fans (though I’d agree it’s unfortunate there’s no demos or outtake included, as they’d seem like a natural inclusion).
