4.0 out of 5 stars Almost Perfect, 24 Nov 2012
The only fault with this otherwise beautiful looking, and sounding boxset, is the printed tracklisting, which instead of being imprinted on the (blank) back cover, is on a seperate sheet that is badly gelled on to the back. Mine has already come off. This is even more annoying than the fact that Amazon reduced the price of the boxset by 8 just after I purchased.

3.0 out of 5 stars Missed opportunity, 1 Oct 2011
A value for money boxset, but also a missed opportunity.

As has been mentioned, the set is not Complete. Would it really have been too difficult to round up the few missing b-sides etc and add them to an appropriate disc?

Also, a measly two page essay really isn't good enough. I'd gladly have paid extra for a CD boxset that was actually Complete and included a substantial booklet with career retrospective, song annotations etc.
