    Preordered when Amazon.co.uk had the super deluxe set for 15 pounds. We’ll see if that gets canceled or not. Tons of content here to be excited about.

    Can I be the first to say something about anti-capitalists being keen on money, why don’t they just give it away etc. Its the law with a RATM thread.

    I recall buying the demo tape at one of their early UK gigs for a fiver. (Windsor Old Trout maybe? Or that club in Reading?). Exactly what they can do to the sound of a record that is still sounds as powerful as it did then I don’t know.

    Depending on price I’ll probably go large as I was at the Finsbury Park gig. That Cal State Quad film is bloody awful though. Unless they have footage that doesn’t look like it was filmed by a CCTV camera half a mile away

  3. Lee says:

    A nice set, but there are obvious period omissions:

    The live tracks from the 9 track German only ‘Bombtrack’ single (there are half dozen which were unreleased in the UK on CD) and the BBC Late Show performance.

    That said, if the price is right, count me in.

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      The suppliers have cocked up the pricing. They gave the wrong price to amazon who ended up cancelling all the orders, and I can see the same thing happening here with Sainsburys.

  4. richard says:

    My Sainsbury incorrectly priced set (well I ordered 5 sets actually) was cancelled by Sainsbury. Fascists.

  5. Alan Fenwick says:

    Picked this up today (31st January 2014) from Sainsburys for the knockdown price of £27.99, a nice little bargain
