Although not mentioned on this site, there's actually a first and second pressing, if I'm not mistaking (I know because a friend of mine heard the box years later at my place and was than aible to order the box awhile later when it became available again). The only notable difference between the two pressings is that with the second pressing the sleeves which house the discs are quite tight, which is not the case with the first edition.

The best CD box set I own. Gorgeous packaging and artwork. Incredible sounds. A lovingly presented showcase of early electronic music. The only flaw is that the sleeves which house the discs (while they look great) are a bit too tight and its a pain to get the discs out. Other than that, perfect in every way. Highly recommended for fans of pre-70's electronic and/or tape music.

Incredible box-set: 4CD and a huge amount of booklets, stickers... all printed wonderfully on every side. Superb artwork ever. Highly recommended. No question: the Song of the second moon was the most pioneering electro track with shocking melodyline and instrumentation. The birth of the electro. There are similar good traks more. If you download the material is understandable but the complete treasure-box to own is the real thing! I will never sell mine!
