Don't be a mook....  the band & management get final sign-off on all of this (AND it HAS been on the drawing board for years... just look at what they decided to leave off!!!).

This is what they chose to give us.

(All the colour got used up in the 'tanks'... that squish the sleeves.)

My favourite bit is where half the "rare" material is previously released & is still in circulation... yet they've edited substantial chunks off every un-released show / content (bar four).

Are these going to be sold to us again, later, as 'complete' shows or 'expanded' discs?

btw - Sony has re-scanned all the artwork from printed cd covers and 'cleaned it up' (photoshopped it). That's why it looks so crap.

Their 'archive' is non-existant since everything went digital & it cost money to store this stuff. (and also since their manufacturing facility at Huntingwood got hammered by a hailstorm and whatever they hadn't thrown out in the move from Lidcombe... got thrown out. Google it...).

I might have missed this bit... but are all the Studio albums just re-hashes of the stuff we bought at the 'last' remastering (just in cardboard sleeves)?

As i am yet to purchase mine, i'm not put off by anyones disappointment however i agree with Graeme in the way he/we/us were obviously miss led regarding the promotion of these box sets.

Not blaming the band or the management but someones responsible so i hope they take our words seriously for future releases.

I don"t think the band is that far removed from the business of what goes out/on...this has been on the drawing board for a while and im sure Jim & Rob were involved in production.....
