Apple in a box,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Apple Box Set (Audio CD)Seeing as my first review has been 'blocked' by someone at Amazon I'll try again (Why?!) This is a collection of 2010 re-masters of some of the LP's released by that label between 1968 - 1974.
On the plus side the set works out quite cheaply per disc (there's 17 CD's in here) & we have new sleeve notes, some new photos & the previously mentioned new remastering.
On the minus side, as a previous reviewer has mentioned, the receptacle that holds all the CD's is akin to a small cornflake box in its rigidity. You need to be very careful when handling this. Also an extra booklet with maybe a UK/US discography and some extra photos wouldn't go amiss. I'd be quite happy to pay an extra £5-10 for a rigid box & an extra booklet, but I don't work for Apple so it's not up to me! For another few pounds on top of that maybe a DVD with some Apple promo films, etc.? Oh well, that's what I would have done but there you go.
In conclusion, nice to see all these available again but marred by a flimsy box. Maybe I could try and make my own unique wooden box to hold them all in (...now there's an idea!)

a realisable comment for a box set that retails over £200 , maybe they should have used old apple boxes !!!.

Anyone like to comment about the quality of the music/recording rather than the flimsiness of the box?

Yeh, the quality of the music is as flimsy as the box!
