A beautiful 3lps box, gothic letter type used for the box himself and front side of main insert (back is tracklisting with credits, second one s/sided is a classic picture). Certainly a message...
Note : the lp3 "low" is a very strong mastering compared to some other editions ;
The lp2 "heroes" includes the English / french version of title track (which a not so great mix compared to the original English version)
It's another way to get these 3 legends lps and it works well.
