    She is credited and named in the book!
    The problem is that the credits for the albums are very inconsistent,
    some have credits and some have nothing!
    So its not like they on purpose left her out of it, just a wee bit sloppy imho! :-)

    Yep...again, those aren't typos to me as much as oversights. Actually, IMHO your word works best: sloppy!

    Love the audio content

    Should have said I agree on the ”typo” not being a typo, except for the spelling of Phaedra!

    the last couple of pages have convinced me that I may mildly and madly need this.
    But my eyes will do as much as my ears and my hands (for the wallet issue) in the decision


    Soooo, is there a visual for the SW remixed boxset??

    Thanks

    I'm always a bit frustrated when the original artworks are reduced for the single CD sleeves

    It may sound like nit-picking but TD artworks always deserved the maximum size possible.... At least until Exit...

    Artwork in the book = LP size! :-)

    thanks for the link

    Difficult but I'll probably pass up on this... Hate the fact that the CDs are not loose inside their own separate individual cover.

    Exit's cover is better than Tangram's, IMO/



    You're probably thinking of the back cover, which "became" the front cover of the LP (as well as the cassette's, in the U.S.) on subsequent pressings.

    FYI, Burning Shed is taking orders for the repress and their shipping date is actually early August. And it's still at their good price.

    Not a question of price, but format: I dislike those vinyl-size boxsets (already the pain of that huge fucker's size), especially if you can't take out a specific disc and its cover (or booklet) into the car (for ex) to see what's on it without carrying the whole bloody thing around

    Furthermore, I don't have Blue Ray technology anywhere, and I suppose that there are no versions with styndard DVD in there.

    I only mentioned it because you said you might need to get it. If you decide you don't want it, that's fine.

    No, it's just an unfortunate decision. Notwithstanding the format this box is loaded with pure gems and it would be a real pity to miss them for such minor practical/cosmetic details. It's the music that matters after all and believe me or not but there's plenty of excellent (previously unreleased) stuff in this box. Phaedra's outtakes and Oedipus Tyranus alone are worth the price of admission. The book is a wonderful addition and includes all the full-sized original cover artworks printed on heavy paper. We can allways find some reasons to complain (I really miss Tangram which should have been included in this set) but as far as I'm concerned this is a GREAT box and I'm more than happy with it. I offered my collection of duplicate (Virgin) single studio albums to a close friend, and he's happy too now... one more (new) TD fan.

    FYI: while the the box was quickly sold out (or outrageously expensive) at all the usual music retailers I found my exemplar in a big electronics/computers/multimedia supermarket in Brussels, cheaper than Amazon and including free 48h shipping.

    Yeah, I know.... I'm not fully decided yet on,whether to go for it or not, but I already own all of the albums of that era... Furthermore, the albums I enjoy or return to less are Rubycon & Phaedra, so the out-takes could be of medium interest for me. Yup, the fully "coffee-table" sized book is interesting, but it's at at the costs of those individual sleeves. Believe me, if the individual discs had their own sleeves this would be a no-brainer for me and I'd get rid of all my old TD discs.

    BTW, did the early Green Desert sessions thingie found its way in the unreleased stuff??


    I was thinking of visiting the Mediamarkt on Rue Neuve soon to see this boxset and maybe indulge in the other (normal-sized) boxset of their earlier works (though I also own ll of it, but here it's in perfect format and only 4 albums)

    Green Desert would have been before this period, I believe. (Well before + after, technically :-D).

    Most of the previously unreleased material is Phaedra-Rubycon period so if that is less interesting to you, it might be hard to justify pulling the trigger.

    You may decide you want to cherry pick from the new versions of the individual CDs instead.

    I was never into TD but having listened to this box set in Apple Music I am now convinced I need the physical box, if only for the Blu-ray. Waiting for the second print, but also hoping to snatch a copy at the upcoming Night of the prog festival in Germany where TD will be one of the headliners.

    Why don't you buy the seven core albums in their new standalone versions - the contents on each "album disc" are the same as the corresponding disc in the box. That way you have the improved remasters in cd cases with artwork, for portability.

    And then just purchase the rest of the material as downloads? (It's all up there for legal purchase on 7Digital.)

    Slightly out of topic , I saw a couple of days ago this TD concert video from 2018 in Oslo, great reminiscence to the classic TD sound with great visuals.

    Is this set in a box or the large, hardcover book format. I guess with that many disks it must be in a box. I’m ok with either format.

    It's in a slipcase containing a hardback book plus two folders that house the discs.

    Yeah, that's an option too, thx

    BTW, I saw both boxset (the pink years and the virgin years) at the mediamarkt, but at 130.00, I'll definitely pass on the Virgin-Wilson thingie

    the Pink Years boxset is now mine (32.00) and they sounded excellent in the car, and I'll get rid of my Nebulous Dawn boxset, but I'll do a bit of sonic comparison on my hi-fi before I do so.

    Ah, I couldn't tell from the photo that it was an "earbook" inside a slipcase. Thanks.
