Heads up: Secretly Canadian has a repress of the purple vinyl up for pre-order on their website, shipping 02/2019. Please don't feed the flippers.

What a great repress! The packaging is sublime, the 2Xpurple LPs are sublime and they both sound great.
The notes from relatives & musicians did move me... On a more personal note, I would not have shared that many details on Jason's love to his wife (it's the basis of this great album but do we really need proofs whiles lyrics are so perfect?!).
A must have for Jason Fans.

Big glob of dried glue on Disc 1 Side A

So disappointing. Very cool packaging though.

my copy sounds great. love it! very well worth the money. all old out now, watch out for scalpers!

This is such a gorgeous box set for a gorgeous collection of songs. The mix is a tad bit muddy by my assessment, but the vinyl itself is pretty much pristine. I am so happy to finally own a copy of this record. Well worth the money if you are a fan of Jason's.

Wonderful and very personal box set. The vinyl runs quiet and clear ... maybe a little lack of dynamic and deepness but overall a top quality pressing. Including all songtexts and plenty of addings. I got mine for 42€. Top deal in my opinion.

My copy sounds wonderful. Run, don't walk to get this collection of Jason's work. The packaging and stories within are are top notch and touching as well...

I'm going to buy this, but I'm kinda dreading it too. So gunshy of Secretly Canadian pressings these days..... fingers crossed

Lovely packaging, but extremely noisy on my copy. Also a skip during Side 1 of The Lioness Sessions.
It's listenable but disappointing.
