    Honestly, I’d pay more for a copy of Instant Replay that didn’t have The Girl I Left Behind Me on it.
    • PFree15116's avatar
      Regarding this set, my set is missing the self-titled LP with 2 copies of Headquarters in the set. The LP Instant Replay is missing "The Girl I Left Behind" BUT upon notifying Rhino of that issue, they sent me a replacement LP in a plain white jacket on green vinyl like the original in this set with that song where it should be in the LP lineup. I never did hear back on the self titled album replacement even tho I had sent them pictures and proof of purchase for the set. They did not ask for me to return the error disc.

      I have to wonder if anyone got 2 copies of self-titled in their set but missing Headquarters. The mistake was not isolated to just my copy. Others received their set with the same mistakes as mine.

        Are these mastered from the original analogue tapes? I hate when companies don't disclose that kind of info plainly and clearly on the sticker or on their website.
        • johnnybrum's avatar
          'Head' in this set is completely transparent; it has no colour at all, it's as clear as you can get.... The listing has it as "Gray Opaque" but it's not gray and it's not opaque...
          • socalrecords's avatar
            Has anyone received this box set without the Bonus Disc LP? I just had a customer tell me their copy was sealed but did not include the Bonus Disc. And I've checked every copy I still have on hand and the Bonus Disc is there and included. Strange! Any insight would be much appreciated.
            • recordandy's avatar
              Please note that these are black vinyl and not coloured
              • beatamazon's avatar
                The American repress, non limited edition, has all the correct songs, in the correct order on Instant Replay. RE-1 Deadwax. No RSD sticker anywhere, or any mention of 'Start your ear off right'. Colored vinyl.
                • Dubdriver's avatar
                  I have just purchased this box set sealed, same bar code, but all the discs are black vinyl.
                  • bomber501's avatar
                    Another error exists here, on the first album, Saturday's Child, Tomorrow's Gonna be Another Day, Papa Gene's Blues and Take a Giant Step are actually in mono, should be in stereo.
                    • CykoMF's avatar
                      There is apparently another version of this box set out there released in January (?) 2016. It has a 'Start Your Ear Off Right' sticker on the outer shrink wrap. Would the RSD version then be considered a reissue/repressing? The earlier version has no barcode on the rear of box.
