    Maybe this is old news, but I wasn't aware - the booklet and bonus CD from the new box are available for separate purchase from ReR for those that have the old box set. Will this be available through Wayside anytime soon?

    Not that we have been told.

    My box - the big one - needed 1 and a half month to reach Greece from Germany, but it's finally here. It's the most beautiful thing I've ever set eyes on.

    A colleague of mine saw it on my desk this morning and asked me from where I got my food. He thought there was fried chicken in there! I didn't explain that it was just Cow.

    OK, so I've listenign to the Hamburg CD from the first boxset, and I notice that in the middle of what appears to be a long improvisation (Hamburg 1-5), there's a track called Red Noise. All six band members' names appear in the byline, but is it a written composition, or is it just another improvised section, and Cutler gave it a title just to mess with our heads?

    ^ The enhanced booklets in The Road series explain all about those semi-random titles. There's an improv later on called "A Heart", which has to be one of the most poetically contrasting wordings of content I ever came across. I believe there are other examples as well.

    Absolutely loving Concerts....did disc one twice tonight. Its such a beautiful recording in so many ways, especially the first 5 BBC tracks, but its all good. Bob did a wonderful job with this 2006 release and I have still never heard the original LP. Also did Leg End yesterday, a frozen desert island album for me. My son did not totally dig it but loved when I played Cardiacs after it.

    I have the old version of the three box sets. I may have to pick up the new cd and booklet. I should revisit the sets again first.
