    A 46 minute version live of Eruption on cd 9. Wonder what that is like. Cool box set but there'd have to be a lot of goodies that I don't already have for me to go for it.

    Content:

    - First seven albums (released between 1970 and 1976) 24-bit remastered from the original tapes

    - B-sides, single mixes and previously unreleased bonus tracks

    - CD featuring the first official release of BBC In Concert 1973; in stereo from the BBC archive tapes

    - CD featuring 80 minutes of previously unreleased Focus concert recordings from 1971-1975

    - 2 DVDs featuring the complete Focus At the Rainbow concert film from 1973 restored and remastered from the original 16 mm film, two BBC ‘Old Grey Whistle Test’ broadcasts from 1972 and BBC In Concert from 1974, plus rare footage from Focus live in Dublin 1973, various clips, the ‘Goud van Oud’ reunion from 1990 and the ‘Focus 2 Classic Albums’ documentary from 1997

    - 80-page booklet with band history, liner notes and various memorabilia
    Could be interesting. (I hate the bonus tracks on the Rainbow album, though: couldn't they have found more tracks from that concert?)

    All I own are the first four studio albums and the FTVaults DVD, though I'm not really interested in Mother or Ship, but there is sufficent stuff I don't own (especially in vidéo)to make it interesting - including the cardboard sleeves with original artworks.

    If the price is right...
    my music collection increased tenfolds when I switched from drug-addicts to complete nutcases.

    Yeah, this has piqued my interest but it will need to be competitive!

    Hopefully the UK sellers will be likewise. That is a bargain.
