Update: When I wrote my comment below, it was based on listening to one disc (#20, State of Independence 1990), and that just happened to be the one disc out of this entire set that had a problem. All the others are perfectly fine, very well mastered and with no obvious vinyl sources, aside from what sounds like some muffled surface noise in the opening second of "All Systems Go (Extended Remix)" on disc 13.

Yet another mixed bag from Demon Music Group.

Based on one disc I checked from this box, sound quality is generally excellent, with modern EQ and good dynamic range, no clipping or distortion. However, one of the rarer tracks, "State of Independence (No Drum Mix)" is apparently a vinyl transfer which has been run through a declicker filter with too-high settings, so the attacks of the percussion in the intro have all been softened, turning the music's taps and clacks into muffled scrapes.

I don't understand why, when they have to resort to vinyl transfers, they can't just shell out for a mint copy of the record, and then manually declick it (it really does not take that long) or at least use the automatic filters with a much lighter touch. Instead, they apparently start with someone's beat-up, dirty records, and then they crank up the declicker settings, applying it to the whole song in one pass, until they don't hear any more clicks.

Can somebody post some detailed pictures of the limited edition box? I am curious if the fine print reflects that this box houses the special edition of CD24 or if they used the same box as for the standard edition.

you know, in addition to all the Oasis, Casablanca and Mercury singles that were released from Donna Summer and not included in this i can also think of atleast least 1 Geffen single not included in this. so this is NOT a complete collection
