This box set is not titled 'Eruption'. That is the title of the black cover album in it's original release. I bought my box direct from Conrad Schnitzler and it was titled 'Work In Progress'. The picture shown is actually that of the inside of the box top. The box itself is green as shown in the last picture in the set.
