Which are the GAS tracks that appear only on compilations and are not included on GAS albums or eps (or recent boxsets)?
Looking on rym and around the web as i can see the are 2 tracks on Modulation and Transformation 2 (both Untitled), 1 on M&T 3 (1912) e one on M&T 4 (Oktav); then there is Nach 1912 on Pop Ambient 2007 and Die Wand on Blepp:10; there is the Cupid's Head remix for The Fiedl; there is also a 1995 compilation, Electric Ladyland, that also is featuring a Gas track, called Maschine...
Something else?

My set is lovely. No fingerprints, warps or similar.
The inner sleeves were probably a bad choice due to the material but that is something you as a label might realize when it's too late. They are inviting for fingerprints, seam splits and wrinkling... I am overall fine with it though.

I'm still waiting for someone who is a massive Gas nerd to make a chart on the Gas Wikipedia page for how all the different versions of tracks compare. I'm a completist, but I don't really like having redundant releases, for instance if the CD release is essentially the same as a vinyl release.

If anyone wants to do it, you'll be forever known as 'That Guy' to me and my friends. And if you end up living anywhere near me, I'll probably buy you a German beer.

Any thoughts on why the first album is absent from the box set?

Has anybody already started a draft for the boxset release? I have it in my hand, but don't want to do double work since it's big and time consuming. Thanks!

A Kompakt advert in the Groove magazine seem to suggest a 10x12"/4CD GAS boxset? The catalog number seems to be KOMPAKT 370, anyone knew about it?
