Question for anyone who owns this one - how many pages are in the booklet? Thanks!

This is an amazing piece of history. The musical is great and the package is really good - perfect pressings and the booklet is very good.

Just awesome. It may be a pricy purchase, but if you look at buying these brilliant tracks individually, it works out quite reasonable. A must have for any DJ's collection

Absolutely essential box set with lavish packaging and booklet. Also the pressing is very loud and clear which makes listening a real pleasure. Such a shame that Nuphonic folded before they got a chance to do a "Paradise Garage" or "Music Box" boxset. Loft 2 is also essential. As for the music itself - a mixture of genres - house, disco, dub, soul which goes to show that the best music transcends its genre (something that producers of "club" music should note). The famous quote "there are only two types of music - good and bad" applies here. This is all good!
