I am hoping that every main Smiths album is given the same treatment - it would be a wonderful collection to have.
It sounds good to my ears.
Boston is a great gig.
Exhaustive demos / outtakes were probably never on the cards, but the balance between unheard and already leaked seems fairly done.
I'll be surprised if this is ltd at all. It is made to sell and make money. But this is only my guess.Posted this in the wrong thread earlier: Anybody know how limited the vinyl set is? I would really like to own it but wondering if it can be pushed off til Christmas.
Bought the 3 CD box set today from Jumbo in Leeds. Thought Boston gig was a bit poor sound wise and really disappointed with the quality of the product. The gatefold image is poorly reproduced and there is no accompanying literature regarding the album or its recording. Also found that the lyric brochure looked super cheap. Incorrect lyrics to Queen is Dead. Anyone buying this deserves a well thought out product. Lacks the finesse of a true Smiths release. Still waiting for the tote bag.., Pilgrimupnorth

Yes I agree although the l.p. box set is beautiful I kind of sat there feeling like id gorged on too much Ben and JerrysI purchased the 3 CD/1 DVD version, still waiting on mine to arrive in the mail. I couldn't be bothered to purchase the 5 LP version, I like just one, glistening, LP when it comes to my vinyl -- anymore than that and I am sickened.
