4.0 out of 5 stars Nifty little box
This is great VFM, and it's nice to have a disc collating all versions of Hit The North, just for fun! If there is a quibble (which is minor): they could've dropped Seminal Live (not their best) and added Bend Sinister with extras, as it's long overdue revisiting. But, perhaps one of these days...?

3.0 out of 5 stars three out of five aint bad for the price
Three out of the five are worth having but two are throwaways ie the live cd and the hit the north cd but i suppose still good value. not the best of the fall but half decent stuff, always a few nuggets to be discovered.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great to finally have this!, 23 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 5 Albums Box Set (Audio CD)
Keeping this brief as I have only just got this, and it deserves a ***** star rating now.

What more could you want?

The Beggars remaining albums - minus Bend Sinister, for now - in a neat box.

Well mastered, this time...the original CDs were best avoided as the vinyls sounded better.

Beggars, with the Wonderful and Frightening World of The Fall and This Nation's Saving Grace box sets - and now this new one, have finally delivered.

True, there were carps from some (yes, me) about the lack of live tracks / shows when this release programme first started, but they've done their best within budgets to get these to the market in a viable form.

You have here the vast majority of The Fall's recorded work from 1987-1989, including rare and unreleased tracks, different mixes from vinyl. The odd track given away on scattered compilations / music magazine freebie EPs from back in the day may have been skipped but licensing or lack of availability of masters may have scuppered them, and by and large the essential stuff is here.

At thirteen pounds or so no-one can rightfully complain about the price, and the 'missing' items I allude to circulate amongst fans or can be picked up largely for a couple of pounds or so on a well known auction website.

Don't miss out...even if you own the vinyls, at this price, this compact set (5 CD's in less than the space of one of the old 'fat case' double CD's) is a treat.

If anyone from Beggars or who has any sway with them is reading, I did notice this comment online - "Spin This Web beggars Adult Net album that got canned" about the lost Adult Net sessions...well having heard the original Spin This Web (on one of the music paper EP's of the time), I for one would love to hear that. Also I've heard rumours that Beggars *might* be planning 5.1 / DVD Audio releases of some of their catalogue...while some may laugh at the suggestion of any Fall in '5.1' I think some of the Beggars Fall material - much of which had high production values - would be ideally suited to such treatment.

In the meantime, get this box, and enjoy!

The best days of this seminal band that I love so much. I think could include Bend Sinister in this collection, but all the records are amazing and I am enjoying it a lot!!! Recommend to all The Fall Fans!!
