Yep, it's all here! All the studio albums in heavy card gatefold replica sleeves. I can't say if the artwork itself replicates that of the original albums to the last illegible bit of text, but they do look good and feel durable. The outer box is really heavyweight stock. As for the sound quality anyone with an audiophile setup will be able to notice a clear difference in sq the earier albums here compared to the HDCD remasters. The sq here is the 'honest' original sound without any artifice, boost, bricking or tinkering. To my ears this current set provides the best sq compromise by far. Thoroughly recommended even if you have all the albums already, just for the original 'sound'.

I can't agree with the other reviewer more !
This IS possibly one of the best 'Box-Set's' of a back catalogue EVER.
OK the 'inner sleeve's are thin card and could have been a bit better
But at least there IS something holding the CD so you can get them out of the Very Stiff covers.
For any type of 'fan' this is an essential buy and look 'Fantastc' if you ever want to 'play' [with] them.
A zillion times better than the recent-ish Donn summer one [unf. !].
I only hope that Nile Rodgers would something this good as he often said this band was the 'inspiration' for the direction of Chic.
And maybe include the Johnny Mathis, Fonzi Thornton [who sings back-up for Bryan Ferry ?] & Norma Jean Wright Albums at least ??

This boxset is seriously good. I urge everyone that is doubting over buying this: just buy it! For a price of only £50 on Amazon, this is a steal. Every studio album is presented here in a very nice way, all gatefold sleeves. A 2-disc compilation is added containing all B-sides, alternative mixes and remixes. The only negative thing you could say is there are no booklets with detailed information. But don't let that hold you back.

On the sound quality: these are all flat transfers of the original master tapes which means very good sound quality. These discs are in no way compressed, brickwalled or whatever. So you can really crank the volume up without it hurting or becoming unpleasant to your ears. They all have very nice dynamics and sound very good to my ears. How a cd really should sound.
