5.0 out of 5 stars Time Capsule........ 16 Dec 2012
By SfromL
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Good things apparently come to those who wait...
and wait.....
and wait........
and wait............

Finally, after what feels like absolute aeons, James' fans are rewarded with what can only be described as a treasure trove of goodies. There's plenty here to make you feel all gooey, hidden tracks a plenty, unheard material from the days when the Sony Walkman was king, 12" vinyl with some nice songs on it, original material all spruced up in hi-spec format, stuff you can read or look at if that's your thing. Badges the kids can enjoy, (or if you're like me you'll keep them out of their reach, the badges monetary value is one thing but badges also have sharp pointy bits which might hurt them).

Beautiful packaging, all in all it's a great piece of memorabilia, a time capsule for one of the best British bands of all time.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for any James fan 14 Dec 2012
By Jo
Format:Audio CD
If you have only heard the well known James singles then you haven't heard this band in their full glory! They really are one of the most under rated bands of all time. Haunting melodies, inspired thoughtful lyrics - songs that make you want to get up and dance like a crazy person and songs to cry your heart out to. There is something for everyone and every occasion. You'll know far more songs than you think you do as James has crept into the sub-consciousness of of so many people. This box set is just fantastic, It has all their studio albums included on a USB, all their videos, a CD of rare tracks, a CD of live tracks, A live DVD from 1990 (that I previously only had on VHS so VERY happy to have it in a longer lasting format!) plus loads of information, pictures, badges and history on the band... all presented very nicely. If you know a James fan or want to know them much better you really can't go wrong buying this box set.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Gathering Sound Boxset 14 Dec 2012
Format:Audio CD
Fantastic collection of James' back catalogue. The set comes in a lovely box, contains ALL eleven of James studio Albums. You also get Live Tracks and Rarities. The tracks are on various formats - CD, Vinyl and on a 8gb `J' shaped USB stick. There's a DVD of the previously only on VHS tape, Come Home Manchester Gig from 1990 and all the music videos. You get info and photo filled booklets, posters, badges and replica backstage passes. The USB (16bit FLAC and MP3) also has tons of information about the band, laid out in a `timeline' fashion. I'm SO happy with my Boxset. It's just wonderful. I love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth every penny 19 Dec 2012
By Danvers
Format:Audio CD
This box set is well worth the wait & every penny! I was lucky enough to order early & get a signed version. But to possess everything ever recorded is just brilliant. Some great stories written in this too . The prints are real good & it really is a collection you won't find anywhere else, unlike other box sets it has a feeling of uniqueness about it, probably because James have NEVER done one before... They're made us wait, & for me & every other fan it's been worth it!!

5.0 out of 5 stars It Does Not Get Much Better ? 29 Oct 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Having seen the band many times over the years and having most of their albums in one form or another I was undecided as to purchase this or not. However having taken the plunge I have not regretted it. This is a wonderfully presented box set. I am sure you can find the live CDs and DVD elsewhere but this brings together most of what James have been about for so long. One of the best bands to come out of Manchester in the late eighties and early nineties if you move on from the well known singles there is a depth of music to find on here that few bands have ever replicated.
