    Possibly right (never been there) but you have to pay every precious sip in gold from what I've heard.

    Can't you play regular CDs in any DVD player?

    You would think so! I should have clarified -- my "DVD player" is actually a PlayStation 4, and it doesn't have CD player functionality.

    The improvs on the box are second to none in my book... the way they weave threads in and out of those sections - the pacing - the almost scary feelings I get - just a treasure-trove of awesome. It just keeps on giving over and over - no matter how many times I play it - or any one show. Just wow for me.

    Wow! So this box has everything that's in the three-box set? Does it include what was on the special bonus disk that came with that? Are the booklets the same? I have the three-box set so I don't need this, just curious as to what this is exactly - I didn't know that ReR had released a less expensive version! Preparing to be miffed...

    Looks like the 40th anniversary one - so you'd be missing one booklet and one cd that the 50th has.

    I think it is the full Redux box, which comes with 17 CDs, one DVD and three booklets. What it does not have is the extra disc that RER provided with the Redux box if you bought it from them - called 'Ex-box: collected fragments 1971-1978'. But anyone can buy this separately from RER for £12.50. So this is an excellent deal.

    All the cds are in plastic sleeves. I prefer the three boxes & jewel cases.
    You are able to order the new cd separately for anyone who has the old sets.

    I just looked at my 3 sets along with that extra bonus disk and the extra booklet is one that goes in the 1st Box which is the Orange covered one

    I am greatly enjoying the Michel Edelin Quintet's Echoes of Henry Cow (with liner notes by Aymeric) -- jazz flute interpretations of Henry Cow's music with John Greaves providing spoken word.

    Admit you feel some kind of weird excitement when you use the word "entrails" and I take everything back!
    (at least I feel some when reading your posts that contain terms from anatomy)

    Admit to nothing. Just say you're humbled - à la Boris Johnson - and you should get away with it

    In fact I'm not only offended but at a loss of words of how emotional my reaction has been these last/past hours on noting that exceedingly overwhelming tirade of extraordinary hatespeech from 'thustra. I simply just can not come to terms with the terms of how he would even think of flabbergasting my entire identity as a living being like that. My world has collapsed and crumbled, and I'm eating out of open-broken skulls now, like cans and fausts. I bring the brainmeat home to fry like a Liotta pie, changing dear diapers and exchanging tear-wipers as I try to kiss this guy while fearing for old age and the sage of endearing as my rage goes by. It's progressive, influenced by Steven Wilson and that dude who sings purported lead vocals on "Flowers Must Die" by Ash Ra Tempel.
