    But it's a big investment of time, though most of the time is wait time. So, while it took the better part of two afternoons to do it, its all done now and I can put whatever I want on my DAP so I can also listen when I got to Montréal at the end of the month for the jazz fest.

    Cheers!

    Fantastic review by the way! Detailed and informative as always. It may help steer me though this ocean of material!

    I'm with you on this. And it didn't take very long to rip the CDs either, just about an hour last night. The DVDs and blu-ray will obviously take a bit longer but it will be well worth it.

    So tired
    Tired of waiting
    Tired of waiting for Cri-im-so
    I was a lonely nerd
    I had nobody till I met Fripp
    But Fripp keeps-a me waiting
    All of the time
    He's such a drip.

    Jed. There are children in the world who will never get a box set. Crimson, or otherwise. Be grateful.

    I think "Fondle Withdrawal" is setting in.

    Some children don't even have balls to rub on their box sets.

    I hope that soon all children can have a KC box set. I just didn’t know that not choosing the insurance affected the speed of delivery.

    No humor please, we're skittish.

    Seems like shipping is rolling out slowly no matter the source. My discs from DGM just shipped yesterday.

    Ordered mine from Burning Shed Thursday evening (west coast time, so Friday in the UK); it's here already.

    For those that have it, can anyone say which improvs are included on the Live ConstuKction part of the set? (I've seen the general tracklist that says where the improvs came from but most of those shows have two improvs, so I'm just curious which ones made the transition)

    Thanks.

    I really had hoped to have the standalone Reconstrukction sitting on my desk when I returned to work today. Amazon tracking info has it "not shipped yet," and when I went to the product page it's listed as "temporarily sold out." So much for pre-ordering.

    I guess I need to hang onto my Heavy Construkction 3 cd set? It looks like very little of it is contained in the box set. Or have I missed something?

    Go here, and search for "Heavy". John explains.
