Sound rather modest. I wish the sound w more direct. more direct. I Wish they hadn't remastered the Cds. Unfortunately, the Cds are shortened.

December 1, 2019

To all who cannot afford this beauty, there is 2 discs of all the 4 albums (i reccomend burning shed for europa)
and man i hope they will do another boxset 1976-1981 (or so)

Indeed a great thing. Thick, 10x10 box with cardboard like material. Big album/book with dozens of photos and memorabilias (not scans like in the Charly anthologhy). The live sets sound perfect.

The only thing missing for me is the video content.

It exists! I own a copy! It is beautiful! After 40 years of living on the Planet Gong myself, I can now die a happy man. Well, a happiER man because I need to own every variation of every Yes single and Sheffield United need to win the FA Cup first. Even then I still won't be satisfied. Ah well, as with most record collectors I will go to my grave frustrated that I never got hold of that Henry Cow box-set.
