  1. Nick says:

    Do these contain brand new 2013 remastering, or is this just a repackaging of the mid-2000s remasters by Rhino? Let me know!

    • Mike Wolf says:

      It’s basically the remaster version from 2003 and 2004 including all bonus tracks, with the Japanese expanded version of Big Generator, all collected in a new 2013 packaging by Roger Dean.

  2. Stuart BArton says:

    Not bad for £31.00 – In fact a bargain.

  3. Larry Mac says:

    Is “Owner Of A Lonely Heart (Extended Remix)” the 808 State remix?

  4. MLava says:

    No US Amazon.com release?

    • Todd says:

      I live in the US. I ordered it from Amazon Germany. The price, including shipping was less than $50 USD! You can log on with your regular Amazon account.

  5. bob says:

    These box sets really are such fantastic value for money!

  6. Eric says:

    This looks excellent value, and a nice sleeve to boot. Do I want all these albums though, especially since I have “In A Word”. Hmm.

  7. Michael Fransson says:

    Is it NEW remasters? Is it multichannel? SACD?

  8. Paul Adams says:

    These are the same masters as used on the Rhino expanded editions.

  9. Richie says:

    Multichannel, SACD???? What do you expect for £30?

    Got mine today and the box set is excellent, all sleeves reproduced including `Going For The One` triple gate-fold. Oh and they sound great also.

  10. Thomas says:

    Got it today also.

    My only complaint: a booklet / sheet with the actual songs contained on the CDs would have been nice.

    Neither the box nor the sleeves show the track listing of the special editions.

  11. fedge says:

    I was just going to post what Thomas said.

    WHY do labels STILL not get it?

    The only place there full tracklist is found is on the disc art itself, which you can’t read when the CD is in play.
