Notes

17 CDs, 1 DVD and 180 pages of histories, chronology, testimony and commentaries by the band, sundry contemporary documents, and rare photographs – in a sturdy box.

This collection brings together the full contents of the three former boxes,

Henry Cow - 40th Anniversary Box - The Studio: Volumes 1-5
Henry Cow - 40th Anniversary Box - The Road: Volumes 1-5
Henry Cow - 40th Anniversary Box - The Road: Volumes 6-10 With DVD

as well as the "Concerts" double CD,

Henry Cow - Concerts

with the addition of a further 60pp booklet [Book 1: The Studio: Official Releases] of newly unearthed, or commissioned, band commentaries, pictures and other documents prepared specifically for this release.

This box set contains re-mastered versions of all the studio CDs and the rare bonus CD (Cabinet of Curiosities),

Henry Cow - A Cow Cabinet Of Curiosities

which came with the subscription edition of the original boxed set.

Subscribers to this boxset received an additional limited edition free bonus CD, Ex Box Collected Fragments 1971 - 1978. ReR Megacorp made this CD also available for separate purchase.

Released & Distributed by ReR MEGACORP 79 Beulah Road Thornton Heath Surrey CR7 8JG UK
Distributed in USA by Morphius Records/MVD 100 E 23rd St Baltimore, MD 21218 USA
Made in Czech Republic

NOTE: The Disc 1 liner notes incorrectly credits "Teenbeat" to Henry Cow (it should be Frith & Greaves), and "Extract From With The Yellowhalf-Moon And Blue Star" to Frith & Greaves (it should be Frith).

NOTE: The back of the insert for Disc 15 mistakenly gives the title of the disc as "Late" (the front of the insert gives the correct title "Bremen"). Also, the back cover of the same disc lists the track "Bremen" as tracks 8-11, whereas it should be 8-12.

A small notice to (potential) buyers of this CD boxset: check CD#4 (In Praise of Learning), some batches are defective and unplayable (crackling noises, tracking errors,etc...). This is not an isolated issue since it has been confirmed on other musical forums. Only disc #4 is affected, all the others plays fine. I contacted the label (Megacorp UK) by e-mail but they didn't care to reply. Fortunately my (Amazon) dealer replaced the whole box and the 2nd was perfect.
