    holy cow that’s way too much money, if it was 175 i would consider but now way man that’s crazy

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      Yes, a lot of money. But you will be getting close to 200 audio tracks, so even without the DVDs and DVD-As that’s just over a £1 per track. When you add all the video stuff, plus book etc etc. it’s not actually bad value, just expensive!

  2. Andy says:

    Spin Records have it on pre-order at £169.99 and have had for a couple of weeks now. They package boxsets well too.

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      In that case it is almost guaranteed to come down to that price on Amazon… thanks for the info.

  3. Paul English says:

    17 separate jewel cases would be great. I don’t like the “CDs-in-slots” that many deluxe sets have.

  4. Mychael says:

    According to interviews in PROG magazine the set will (for the first time) include the original first stereo mix of “Days Of Future Passed” in full. All previous CDs used a remix from the 70s with markedly different passages (only two or three songs from the original mix appeared on the first Moodies box set).

  5. Rami says:

    I definitely want this. However I already have the SACDs so the 3 audio DVDs are useless to me right off the bat. I’ll have to make a decision based on the tracklisting of the 11 CDs. If it has too many already released album tracks I may have to skip this. Which means I am going to have to pass after all getting the Skydog Duane Allman box set. Anyway…

    • LedMan says:

      I preordered from Amazon for $311.37 USD + tax. Since some of the SACDs are still available which would you suggest I get? If the DVD-A’s and SACDs have been remastered by different people then I want both formats.

  6. Justin says:

    I would absolutely love to have this, but being an Australian, I’ll have to wait to see the local price vs. the costs of importing. To say I’m optimistic of getting away with it under $250 would be a complete lie, judging by European prices. I’m also keen to see the tracklisting before I get too excited.

  7. Mychael says:

    Current pre-order price from JPC Germany is 162 euros (free shipping).

  8. Cliff says:

    I don’t believe that 1970 Olympia, Paris concert is unreleased. I have a copy somewhere – it is the band singing live to a backing track that is music-only.

    • MArk says:

      it is not unreleased – perhaps this is just some extra tracks – not a very good concert and/or filming in any case

  9. Robert says:

    5 CDs of “greatest hits.”
    CD 6 is Caught Live without the Plus Five.
    CD 7 is an edited Bluejays concert from 1975.
    CD 8 is an edited Octave concert from Seattle.
    CDs 9 and 10 are a complete 1983 concert from Los Angeles.
    CD 11 is a mix of Red Rocks and a concert from 1997.
    DVD 1 is a mix of TV appearances from 1967-1978
    DVD 2 is that wretched lip-synched mess from Paris 1970.
    DVD 3 is a collection of all their music videos from 1981-91
    DVDs 4-6 contain 5.1 mixes of 6 of their albums.

    • MArk says:

      thanks – this helps alot — Octave concert tunes have been showing up already as bonus tracks on the Core 7 – only things i don’t have [that i may want!] already is the ’83 concert and Blue Jays 75.

    Track list is disappointing. Especially for the price. Still missing the complete original stereo master of “Days of Future Past” as was previously hinted about. Several years ago Uni released all the classic 7 albums as excellent separate deluxe packages. This set adds nothing new to the studio recordings. All the alternate versions are available in these releases . Still missing “gimme a little something” only available on “prelude” and “caught live + 5″. All current interviews seem to overlook the previous deluxe editions. A lot of unreleased live material, but to me it’s the studio work that elevated the moodie to greatness. Very disappointed

    • Bogie says:

      Sorry, but a continuation of the post above: First apologize for the obvious typo (It’s “Days of Future PASSED”). Second, I wish to add that I believe it is a safe bet that the included 5.1 DVDs are the same as the 5.1 SACD versions from the Deluxe Editions mentioned above. The fact that there is no 5.1 mix for ISOALC, would add fuel to that, as there was never a quad mix of that album. Bottom line is if you have all the deluxe editions, which ARE still available (questioning the tag line: ‘Three DVD audio discs containing the long-deleted 5.1 surround sound mixes’) and do provide the additional Hi-Rez stereo copies as well, you will not be getting anything from the studio that is not already available for substantially less money. This set is strictly for the completest looking for live recordings and a few videos not currently available.

    I`ve ordered mine from JPC Germany £147 including P&P to the UK. It`s looking like a good buy to me.

  12. adonis pavao says:

    i love Moody Blues, the album : Long Distance Voyager, is the best album for me, i will buy this box set , i’m collector the moody blues, i don’t see the date , i’m, waiting.
    thanks

  13. Rob says:

    I preordered for $336 at Amazon, but will get a lower price automatically if that should happen. Dismayed that there’s not even one new song recorded in the last year or so. C’mon guys!
