This is brilliant value and a great way to get these essential albums. The (re?)mastering is done splendidly.
One (minor) gripe: I'd have like larger reproductions of the original cover art.
I'll mark this down a star for some of the more self-indulgent late 60s excrescences you will encounter which are now verging on the unlistenable (the lengthy spoken word introduction to the side-long 'In Held Twas In I' being a case in point, but persevere, it improves!), but with this much material to choose from, you will not struggle to find something to merit your purchasing this set.
Music historians should disregard the disingenuous promise of finding 'extensive sleevenotes' inside -- 4 pages does not merit such a description. It is the music that counts, of course, and this quartet of classic albums are presented in their entirety, but -- caveat emptor -- 'A Whiter Shade of Pale' does not feature on any of them. Why not buy the _Withnail and I_ DVD instead and enjoy the jazzy sax version of this piece that the film begins with?
