I own the standard version of this set BUT purely out of curiosity, I wanted to know if anyone knew how much the deluxe set in the metal box with the netting retailed for when it was released?

A note on some of the mixes on this release:

"Beers, Steers & Queers" is the "Drop Your Britches Mix."
"Violent Peace" is the "Bitchmix"
"Digital Tension" should actually be titled "Digital Tension Dementia" and is the album version from Gashed Senses & Crossfire.
"Now Is The Time" is called the "Extended Mix" but runs shorter than the regular version, for some bizarre reason.
"What Time Is Love?" has been called the "Live at Trancentral" version on newer releases.

This needs a vinyl release. This set is a total classic

I believe the reason there's no 242 is because Sony owned the rights to their back catalog material at the time.

@ fyuw4cher They weren't allowed to use any material by Front242 as a result of some licensing issues after wax trax went bankrupt. The Black Box was put out by TVT after they purchased Wax Trax. I would assume that Play It Again Sam records owned the rights to the 242 catalog, as they were in a partnership with Wax Trax.

I never get sick of listening to this excellent collection of early industrial and raunchy favorites. One thing I can't figure out is how they can devote 6 of the 78 pages to Front 242, and go so far as to state that "Front X Front" is their best selling release to date, yet neglect to include them on any of the three discs.
