    Thanks for posting. I only have Trisector from this period so it’s an auto buy to add to the big box. Ohhhhh…..another Fondle In My Future!

    Perfect for you in that case. And you get the book too. I also happen to think Do Not Disturb is the best thing they've done post-70s breakup, so you're in for a treat there too (if you haven't heard it already).

    It's kind of like a sequel to the Charisma Years box.

    Thankfully I have most if not all of this (And certainly all I do want), so this is a pass for me.
    Please don't ask questions, just use google.

    Never let good music get in the way of making a profit.

    Well, you got their best studio album of the XXIst C... Doesn't mean that the rest isn't worthy, though.
    I'd go for it in your case.

    Yup, I spotted disc 5 that I don't have... Abd they didn't even include the three DVD (which I have anyways)
    my music collection increased tenfolds when I switched from drug-addicts to complete nutcases.

    If you’re unfamiliar with this period of the band, grab this. But I’ll pass (with just more than a little hesitation).

    And, yes, Do Not Disturb is great. It’s in my top three VdGG albums.

    One more thought: why not include “Lemmings” from the Evans/PH Union Chapel concert?
    I want to dynamite your mind with love tonight.

    Luckily they didn't have 5.1 added, because I own it all already

    It is interesting that everyone seems to have different favourite when it comes to "recent" VdGG studioalbums. For me the best one is easily A Grounding in Numbers.

    Mine too, with Trisector coming close at the second place.

    Since I never purchased any of the 3rd act VDGG albums, this set should probably be a must for me.

    There was a time when I might have bought this just to get the individual albums off the shelf and clear up some space, but this is no longer that time. Turns out that, if you carefully evaluate the maths, six inches of shelf space is cheaper than a 14-disc box set. I hope it encourages a few people to check out this period of Van der Graaf.
