Here is what some people want to know (from Amazon USA & The Second Disc)
I have all the major albums on cd as well as the latest Tutu Remaster, you will not be disappointed with the sound quality on the 5 cd's
The big let down with this set is the packaging; the first 4 cds are housed in the fold out book style package, but cd 5 is in just a paper sleeve
that is included with the booklet. You will also notice from the track listing, there are 8 albums on 5 cds (including the Rarities) I would have
paid a extra to have all the albums on separate cd's and better packaging. I only bought this set for cd 5 (Rarities & Studio Guest Appearances)
Even with the packaging problems, I would still highly recommend this box set, Amazon UK always have the best price.

This is a great Box Set, except for two things:

1) The albums should came in separate discs each one, with some bonus tracks instead of getting chronologically ordered material, so you get "Tutu" in Disc 1 with some tracks from "Music From Siesta", wich continues in Disc 2! And So on!
2) Disc 5 is great in its content, but Instead of having his place in the box, it comes in a regular paper envelope! COME ON!

"Doctor, it hurts when I do this!" - "Don't do it then". So said the late, great Tommy Cooper.

I am always surprised when products are criticised for what they are - it is clear that there are 7 albums on 4 CDs - if you don't want that, don't buy this and buy the original individual albums. You pay your money and take your choice, this is CHEAP at about £3 per original album - plus a "free" rarities CD - what can be wrong with that? Personally, I don't like odd sized "book" style packaging ( where do you store them? ) and I would be happier if all the CDs came in standard size paper sleeves anyway.

As it happens all 5 CDs had the titles included when downloading on my copy so perhaps another reviewer had a duff copy, or they have fixed it?

The music is what it is - some hate it, some love it, most will not like it all, but at this price you can edit out the stuff you don't like and it's still brilliant value.

As a Miles-completist I had to have this, but what a shame that Warner Bros. couldn't be bothered to put track titles, artist's name, album title on CDs 2-5. If you want to put this on your computer for syncing to an iPod, you have a lot of input work to do.

Also I realise 5 CDs is an awkward packaging task, but a paper sleeve for CD5? Come on!
