  1. Mic Smith says:

    Not sure if this will tempt me as I’d rather have the 14 disc edition but not at full price….I notice that this is listed on Amazon but it mixes the pre-order details for the highlights edition while listing the 14 disc track list which is misleading to say the least. When you click on the link for what is the 4CD edition it gives you very little information other than 26 reviews of the 14 disc set. Its only on here have I seen the 4CD track listing to allow you to make the decision to buy or pass.

  2. Simon Taylor says:

    I have the 14cd box and it is wonderful. A friend of mine who saw Alex supporting the Stones in the 60’s was interviewed by the compiler and his memories are published in the booklet. So as a SAHB fan it was essential for me.

    As a edited down box this looks a decent tracklisting. I’d still suggest trying to get a copy of the 14cd version but if not this looks good. Price is comparable with the 14cd set at £7.50 per cd as opposed to £7.85 for the larger version but as its only 4cd’s I think a fairer price would be around the £23-25 mark. Perhaps it will drop in time, likely to have more availability than the bigger version.

  3. Rich says:

    Just ordered the 4 disc set on Amazon – and the Autorip is all 217 tracks.

  4. Simon F says:

    Never really ‘got’ Alex Harvey in the past but since this set encapsulates his entire career this might be worth a ‘look’. I’ll have to borrow our kids 14 disc version and go through the track listing with a fine ‘tooth’ comb before giving a definite yeigh or neigh.

  5. richie says:

    I wasn`t tempted by the 14 disc set as I already had all the albums, I am tempted by this 4 CD set and Rich has just sealed it for me ALL 217 tracks! Not really into MP3 quality or lack of but…..

    • PAUL BAKEWELL says:

      Switch to iTunes match = no storage problems & accessed ANYWHERE – Better still even if you have a ‘low grade’ track they will automatically provide best quality available AND at a bargain fee of sub £25/ year !

  6. JF says:

    Great idea but bad song selections! Couldn’t they have just made it the entire S.A.H.B catalogue with the previously unreleased live stuff? One day somebody who knows what they are doing will be put in charge of these type of releases…but it won’t be in our lifetime.

  7. Steve Anderton says:

    Got to agree with JF , a 4 disc complete SAHB box set would have been essential , but after seeing the track selection I wont be buying this set. Too many 60s tracks and even the SAHB track selection has too many tracks from the later albums.

  9. Brian McNeill says:

    it is indeed an ALEX HARVEY box set and NOT SAHB the clue is in the name in big blue letters on the cd! And the big box is still the most comprehensive cd antholgy of Alex and was a long time overdue, and they did know what they were doing as I compiled the bloody thing! ;) It tok us well over Three Years to get clearances etc finalised

    • Stuart says:

      Brian, If you compiled it could you answer the oft-asked question. Why was it not complete? It contained about 90% of his output, so it would only have involved adding one ,or at most two, more CDs to the package. And why has the single version of “Anthem” (the instrumental), still never been issued on a CD? These omissions slightly mar what would otherwise have been the perfect box.

      • Brian McNeill says:

        it wasnt complete because there are many things missing from the archives, and also budgets had to be adhered to so im afraid a few discs had to be cut from the tracklistng at the 11th hour

  10. Herman Roovers says:

    As a die hard fan I liked most of the 14 cd set. The booklet was a kind of “tribute to our holy hero”. The biography of Alex pays attention to Alex in a wider perspective (incl. his not so friendly side..). I agree, although it isn’t a SAHB box set the Fourplay album (which shows the great skills of the Tear Gas lads) had to be in the box!
    Nice the book contained a pic of The Tubes with Alex: both are my favourite live bands! Never a dull moment…
    It always is a discussion when you have all the regular stuff: how much percent of a box is really “previously unreleased”. And is it worth the money? In this case the value for money for the box set as a whole is good, but according to the amount of real stuff from the vaults… uhm.. I guess not.
