here are somethins to consider:
the now what cd is awesome, is the best one since Steve Morse joined the band, hard rock, classic rock, prog and deep purple fans will love it
the dvd is not a great value, you only get a 20 minutes conversation and some audio stuff
in the live tapes you get great live stuff from now what and deep purple's classics
in the singles you get great studio and live stuff from old and new deep purple songs but they put them into cheap gatefold sleeves
the booklet is POOR, just some photos on the edge and short liner notes
and at last you get a collectible sticker, a poster and a T-shirt (large)
so.... it would be a better box set, but any way is a great value for a deep purple collector fan, you will love it

this is a great box set for collectors, you get both the now what?? cd, the live tapes discs and the 3 cd singles that where released from this cd set, also the bonus track first sighn of madness that was released on the vincent price cd single is included here, also you get a t shirt, stickers and all in all this is a very nice package!!!! i feel this is the best deep purple album since abandon back in 1998, i loved the first 2 albums with morse on guitar, bannanas didnt do much for me and rapture of the deep was good but this brings me back to the first few years steve was on guitar, i love mark 1 purple all the way through this album, i can only hope a nice box set like this comes out later this year for the perfect strangers 30th ann release that would be awesome!!!!!! im looking foward to the deep purple made in japan super deluxe edition this spring so as a purple collector i had to add this to my collection, purple where the best band out of the uk in this music genre next to uriah heep...............

Well here we have another version of the Now What?! album! Collecting as it does all the singles and "missing tracks" and coupling them with the Now What?! live tapes and putting them in a big box!
The live tapes appear to be monitor mixes rather than a fully mixed live show and merely serve only to whet one's appetite for what could be coming. They do not cover a whole show.
One can only hope that there will be a live release culled from the recent UK shows as the new material and choice of some of the lesser played material moves the band away from the usual "classics" show.
Oh and I forgot to mention the t-shirt thrown in for good measure (large actually!).
All good stuff for the collectors out there!
