I ordered this when the Deal Alart went up here. Cheers Paul for the heads up. I must say this is a superb quality box set.

Rareglam

I hope the Ian Dury set drops by a similar amount as well (also Edsel and same release date) – it’s gone up from £46 to £50 at the time of writing!

Sweet I had this pre-ordered. Maybe now I can grab that Captain Beefheart one.

bob

Whoever is in charge of the T.Rex catalogue should be sacked. I really thought that finally we were going to have the entire T.Rex recorded output in one great package.
Why are the bonus CD’s missing…?

– Ride A White Swan
– Summertime Blues
– Hot Love
– Woodland Rock
– King Of The Mountain Cometh
– There Was A Time / Raw Ramp

These are essential tracks from the early 1970/71 period. Answers Universal please.

Don Cooper

Concur fully,Bob.
(perhaps not sacked.Re-training in the Bolan/Rex oeuvre)

joe dicupillo

Yeah really, why bother throwing in those 2 discs if your not even going to have those tracks?

Paolo Meccano

Give Edsel a break: they’ve done well to licence the first two albums, but Universal would be mugs if they let them have bonus tracks from the current Deluxe Editions as well.

joe dicupillo

screw that, give us everything, at this point record companies should realize there is only a small audience for these releases anyway so they may as well try and please them.

joe dicupillo

That said I will be buying this since my T.Rex collection is lacking, but this would have been the perfect place to collect all those single tracks

Paolo Meccano

Thanks for the heads-up. Certainly a better deal than the recent overpriced T-Rex SDEs.

Sara

Hey Paolo
Where ya been!

Don Cooper

Bonus disc 2 is dire.Elevator/Underworld/Summer perhaps Love at a pinch.Rest are skip track time.
