Biography

In the early 1960s, a bunch of boys from Cambridge began jamming together, and out of those encounters were born the early incarnations of Pink Floyd. More than 40 years and 150 million album sales later, the band headlined the biggest global music event in history – Live 8 – and was inducted into the UK Music Hall of Fame. You could say the Floyd has staying power.

Before I start, the four stars given is for the fact that the Floyd catalogue is one of the greatest in history. While I'm not a fan of the last three albums, I surely would have given this a five star review had there been (as many have mentioned) a round up of the early singles, or an expanded "Relics" for example.
My big concern about this box is that, despite some lucky reviewers having received the "improved" box set (ie, Ummagumma discs printed correctly, the lyric sheet for Side 4 of The Wall being present, etc) I have had no luck where this is concerned.
With the new Discovery box set now available, I decided to investigate which box would be the one for me. The reviews seem to indicate that there is not much difference when it comes to the mastering (and if my Immersion issue of Dark Side is anything to go by, then this is probably the case.) However, with the fact that the Oh, By The Way box does contain the gorgeous replica sleeves, protective inner sleeves and the plethora of additional items that came with the original vinyl releases (postcard for Wish You Were Here, the posters and stickers for Dark Side etc) I realised that this was the box for me.
My first copy was, of course, from the original "faulty" batch. The outer plastic sleeve for Wish.. is nigh on impossible to open without ripping, and the other errors are still present. Having spoken to Amazon (whose customer services, I have to say, is pretty faultless) they sent me a brand new replacement the very next day. And again, it's identical. The "quibbles" may be very minor to some, but what with Floyd being a band for whom detail was so important, and the fact that these boxes are not exactly cheap, I feel the customer should not be getting sub-standard product.

That Pink Floyd were/are one of the greatest rock bands ever I don't seriously think anyone could dispute.

Nor do I think this box set is awful; in fact, most of the albums in it are brilliant!

However, and it is a big "however", Pink Floyd were about the music and this box set seems to be more about the packaging.

No remastering.
No rare tracks.
No enhanced audio (why no SACD/DVD-A content? I know these formats aren't exactly runaway successes but it still would add a valid reason to buy the box set)

So once I've put the disc in my player and I'm lost in "Wish You Were Here" there is no difference to just buying the albums. Which I have already done a couple of times.

As a way of purchasing all the albums it probably works out a similar price to buying them individually so to sum it up:-

If you want to buy the Pink Floyd albums and you haven't got them already, BUY THIS! You won't be disappointed.

If you have all the remastered albums, I wouldn't bother.

This boxed set is a marvellous collection of Pink Floyd's studio recordings. The packaging sticks truthfully to the original vinyl albums, with polythene 'inners' replacing scratchy paper. Everything is there, including the polythene wrapper around the 'Wish you were here' album plus the posters. Pink Floyd 'were' very conscious of their image and their album covers were always innovative. 'Oh by the way' allows all of the over fifties to renew their collection in more ways that just the music. My original vinyl albums suffered at the hands of a flash flood and it was great to be able to buy something 'smaller but beautifully created'. There will be many critics of the Floyd for selling out ... but this ancient space rocker is very, very happy indeed. For people new to the Floyd, this is a great way of getting an instant collection of their recordings. It may not be the 'cool' way to do it, but young people don't like to hang around ... and why should they. Buy it!!

Yes at the original price there wasn't much incentive to buy this. At what I paid for it I thought it was good value.

The material is all very familiar and everyone has their own idea of which are the best albums. I'm not even going to talk about the music apart from to say that all of the remasters are very good.

Apart from being able to buy an instant PF collection what you are getting is the collectible packaging. So what exactly is the quality like. Well its actually very good. the card mini LP sleeves are thicker than some I have come across (apart from OBC which is more like paper). Most of them are laminated over the artwork, and from Meddle and OBC are nice and glossy. The gatefold versions have 2 creases to form a proper spine. These seem to have been hurriedly closed in assembly so that one side has closed more than the other, causing the aforementioned misalignment. It's easily put right by applying a bit of pressure to the creases so that they all close properly.

In my set the single sleeves have not been cut too smoothly but all I had to do was run them across the smooth side of one of my wifes nail boards and they were sorted. it's good quality card and white all of the way through almost and the dust is like plasterboard.

OK so there is no book or extra liner notes so you are left with microscopic sleeve print to read. It goes with the territory of mini LP sleeves.

What I do find unforgivable is the way only the albums that originally came with printed inner sleeves have received inner sleeves now, although the ones you get are all printed with artwork. This means that the others are just stuffed into the poly bags and are constantly trying to roll out.
