This set contains all the recordings that comprised the two LP sets in the vinyl era. A lot of this material sounds brighter on CD and from that point of view, is worth having, even if you already have the LPs. However, EMI could have included MUCH more documentation than appears here. There was a massive quantity of quality documentation with the two LP sets and the three CD sets that comprised the Elgar editions some twenty years ago. This new edition is very cheap, but that does not excuse the rather sketchy booklet, to put it mildly. There is room in the box for a much more informative insert, containing articles and notes that must surely already exist in EMI's archives. Therefore, to omit it, portrays a 'cheapness' that is unbecoming of a notable record company. I shall not be parting with my LPs!
