Completist sets like this are good in theory but must be extremely difficult to do well. This is a nice comp but some tracks sound like they were mastered from vinyl and volume levels are little uneven. Also there are some dropouts on at least one track (disk 2, track 32). Nevertheless it's a must-have for fans.
