5.0 out of 5 stars Nice repro sleeve, matching the sound of the original LP, 12 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: AT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL (Audio CD)
Shame the master tapes have never been released, the bootlegs show that there is a cleaner, less scream-drenched master out there. Still this will do in the meantime.

5.0 out of 5 stars Foundation stone, 12 Nov 2012
Along with the Beatles, Dylan's core sixties discs and the Zeppelin cornerstones, this is surely essential in its original form. But when you add the full range of sessions and a best sound ever version of the perennial bootleg., this is a treasure trove of sound. It is though a shame that they couldn't get to the Nico mater-tapes to remove the extra flute etc as she always wished.

5.0 out of 5 stars A thing of some beauty, 12 Nov 2012
The packing case alone with its warning in red, Beatles vinyl box set... Handle with Care made me smile. Then the inner sleeve wrapping the box and reflecting the cd box sets, nice touch. But the box itself was even better, solid and strong in the style of seventies vinyl cases, but nice piano black finish. I was mildly disappointed that the sleeves were not wrap-over laminate fronts with flat matte backs as in the originals; the white album opening at the side and being pure white instead of the rich cream / white we all love. But the vinyl is perfect, quiet and flat. The sound rich full and deep. Textures of instruments fully realised in a great stereo image. And the book a beautifullly finished artifact. Almost, the perfect package.
