Nothing really exciting. Get more presentation from a tin of Quality Street.

Even the backs of the cardboard sleeves aren't reproductions of the original sleeves (as per the back scan of Loves Sweet Exile), so you don't even get the quotes. And how many of us got into some authors/artists because of those quotes? And why have they used scans of the covers with stickers on (such as Empty Souls, Nixon, ADFL, etc). I'd have forgiven them for the price tag if it was half decent. The only redeeming feature is that they do appear to be a numbered limited edition (but of how many?)

btw thanks for the link to the scans.

It looks a lot better than I thought it would. Approximately how large is that box?

Thanks for the link, starstruck!

Thank God I didnt waste my money on any of this! I was only tempted because of the promise of bonus DVD footage, so wouldve been gutted to find that all this footage is is the JCEQT vid, and the alternate YLU and Autumnsong vids!!

Just the three 7" singles of Jackie, New Art Riot and Suicide Alley. Though some also have a fourth 7" of Motown Junk, but these are random. The rest are CDs that only have the tracks from the original CD1s i.e. no tracks from CD2s, 7", 12", cassette or DVD.

You also get the DVD of videos (also found on the 2CD/DVD version), a poster, a mirror and some lipstick.

But you can see all of that on the photos posted at the start of this thread.

i am flattered by the thanks, but i am just the messenger - the guys at superdeluxeedition obtained it. they are real "money savers" as they take apart all these "super deluxe editions", be they 2 CD sets or 1,000,000 disc mega sets, and show you what you get for the money.

i am trying to persuade them to do the same with films; a few more hits per month and the film studios may start sending stuff their way too!

To be honest now I've seen the "unboxing" that's one feature I don't have to pay for now. The rest of it has "5 minute wonder" written all over it. I doubt I'll look at my NT vinyl again after it came last week...

LOL, I bet they messed every single one of those boxes up and will have to pulp the lot of them. So very Sony.

Something like that happened with a Miles Davis Complete Columbia Album Collection box set I bought a couple of years ago. They managed to glue the CDs to the sleeves.

That's the quality you get with your overpriced Sony box sets.
