    Top marks all around on this. Would have preferred a non boxset option as i'm not a big fan of them, but its seriously an amazing package. Live LP is so good as well. Sound is amazing. Don't hesitate to pick one up!

      A regular good quality reissue would be more welcome instead of a boxset that basically contains 3 songs of which Harvest Time is the only track of interest.

        Am I the only one with warped discs? Namely the 2nd LP with the extra live versions.
        I have contacted Luaka Bop through Bandcamp but so far have received no answer.

          This has been carefully crafted, a huge Thankyou to Yale and the workers at Luaka Bop. Fantastic price & product. The recent Floating Points - promises Live from LA concert, was a very fitting tribute to the man.

            Certain record companies should take a look at this reissue. They would learn how a Box set looks like that really deserves the label "Deluxe". Sound quality, pressing, the box set itself and so many goodies.... Thank you for that! This one is made with passion, desire and love.. and you can not only see it and feel it, you can hear it too

              This reissue is fantastic. Like everyone is stating, it is a serious 5/5. If the original record was mastered by needle-drop, you would NOT know it. I have heard far worse recent re-issues of records done from master tapes than this. Chris Bellman did a simply amazing job. Maybe this can become a new standard for re-issues of records where the master tape is missing or has deteriorated? I am seriously floored by it. It really has fantastic imagery and depth.

              Plus the Live recordings are worth getting this box alone. AND there are so many additional goodies in this box. REAL photos, newspaper clippings, a beautiful booklet, etc. - It is all incredibly well presented!

              The only complaint I might have is what kind of plastic sleeve, or protector to put this box in.... but I will figure something out.

                Wow very much impressed by this reissue. The packaging is done with so much love. THe booklet with the stories, the interviews and the pictures. The little extras like the photo's. The small details like the relief on the cover of the box. But also the sound: this record wasn't made under best circumstances but it sounds very, very good. Sander's horn is so clear you could hear him breathing. It's miles better than the bootleg versions. The bonus tracks are definitely worth it. THen the pressing itself: very clean, no warps, no scuffs. Home run! Highly recommended!

                  5/5 amazing - this will take you on a cosmic voyage.

                  Absolutely no quality issues with the record. Perfectly flat, no noise, etc.

                  This record makes you feel things

                    Incredible package here. Everything is top-notch quality. The various printed items (box, booklet, photos, ticket concert replica, posters...) are really nice and help you dive in the era. The pressing is outstanding, and this piece of music deserves it. 10/10, don't miss it!

                      Did the records come in anti-static innersleeves? A few more words
