    A No Brainer for any hardcore Gong fans. Best sounding versions of the trilogy albums, plus a boat load of live concerts. Another box of live material is on the way.

      You remix done by Simon Heyworth per box set cover, not Simon Hayworth

        My copy sounds fantastic. I have all the previously released CDs and many, many vinyl pressings...including very clean UK editions. This is really, really good. As far as ripping errors, it's some kind of "copyright-protection-thing". It usually seems to be two or three songs near the end of each CD.

          FWIW, I have two copies of this box set and both contain manufacturing disc errors that prevent them from ripping without errors. These are from the original 2019 batch. I had a third copy (Italian stamped) that also had the same defects.

            suono degli album davvero notevole, ascoltare angel's egg prima edizione cd e questo rimasterizzato è una meravigliosa esperienza. devo affrontare i live, che sono tanti... per ora sorpreso e soddisfatto
            • Highknow's avatar
              Sound rather modest. I wish the sound w more direct. more direct. I Wish they hadn't remastered the Cds. Unfortunately, the Cds are shortened.

                Just listened to Flying it just me...or does anyone hate the drum sound ??
                • le-chat-bleu's avatar
                  The box is sold out already everywhere else so hurry.

                    To all who cannot afford this beauty, there is 2 discs of all the 4 albums (i reccomend burning shed for europa)
                    and man i hope they will do another boxset 1976-1981 (or so)

                      Indeed a great thing. Thick, 10x10 box with cardboard like material. Big album/book with dozens of photos and memorabilias (not scans like in the Charly anthologhy). The live sets sound perfect.

                      The only thing missing for me is the video content.
