    Got this for £48 including post from Amazon Italy thanks to S.D.E. ; ))

  2. B says:

    My favorite album by them is “witness” – such s powerful album…
    Hope the remaster won’t be too loud and flat – it’s realy important to be able to crank them up…
    I already have 5 cds by spooky, so not sure if I truly need this box – what will I do with all my present cds?
    And finally, do you believe it will go lower on price, or will it go OOP first…

  3. Bob says:

    I haven’t found anywhere posted about remastering – does anyone have that information or a link to show that the box will be, in fact, remastered and by whom? I have the Repertoire remasters for the bulk of their output, and they sound awfully good to me. I have the box in my cart on Amazon UK but haven’t clicked the buy button yet!

  4. Steve conway says:

    Itching to buy this but already having the spooky tooth CDs I’m in two minds it looks impressive too ! Not sure about the remastering either as the reportiore cd’s were very good
