This promo CD in no way compares to the complete boxset, but it does make a nice companion item and is convenient for playing in the car for a longer duration opposed to constantly swapping out the five discs in the boxset as one drives. I love the design, and although I don’t support buying it in lieu of a non-promotional item, I think it’s worth picking up in addition to the full length Songs for Christmas if you’re a CD enthusiast like me AND if it is listed at a reasonable price.

My boxset just arrived today in time for Xmas rotation. Terrible quality pressing on 3 of the LPs , same as other reviewers. Will be contacting AKR...

Awful pressing quality, lp 5 has a big scratch all over song 2 making it pop every rotation.
Anyone knows how to contact AKR via email to send them the pictures and get a replacement copy ?

Anyone else having quality issues with this box set? My first 2 LP's have scratches on them that make a tick every rotation, the third has a lot of random pops and ticks and is warped. LP 4 again has a small scratch but is overall ok. LP 5 again with lots of random ticks/pops and is pretty hissy on side B. The mastering itself and sound quality underneath is really quite nice but I feel there are a lot of physical defects on the vinyl itself. Will probably try to exchange it and see if I just got unlucky.

Update: Had my box replaced and it was overall significantly better than the first one I got. Still had an issue with one LP but AKR promptly sent out a replacement LP. Might have some production issues but definitely top notch customer service. Also I made sure to change my LPs into new poly sleeves given the below mentioned issues with shavings

This could be done on a double LP without a problem. Put it on vinyl please.

This needs an abridged vinyl reissue. Even just 12 sounds would make me happy.

This delightful set is in desperate need of a vinyl re-issue!
