    Does anyone know whether this DVD offers the same Easter Eggs as ??
    • tomerikloe's avatar
      While quickly looking at the tracklist and years, this boxset didnt intrest me at all, so i didnt not purchase it, didnt even consider it, time went by and now i sit with my boxset in hand, and listen to the last disc, shure there are loads of songs released elsewhere, but there were more rarities than i knew of, and my god the boxset and book is beautiful. also infact all the audio discs are very well put together and flows very well (again before hearing it on CD, it seemed like a mish-mash of edited songs, which it is, but it is edited very proffessional. the DVD i have yet to check out, even if i know most of it from shitty you tube uploads. If you are thinking of buying this, go for it, don`t doubt as much as i did. no regrets !!
