3.0 out of 5 stars For completists only, 21 Oct. 2009
This review is from: Tubular Bells - The Ultimate Edition (2009) (Audio CD)
I bought this box set and was somewhat disappointed. There is no new material other than the demos. They were never intended for release and are quite patchy. I don't really see the point of including them here. The push-out plectrums are a gimmick, as is the inclusion of a vinyl copy of the original album. The book is large and glossy, but doesn't contain that much material, contains almost nothing from Mike himself, and it would have been nice if someone had at least had a go at proof-reading it before it was printed.

A nice idea in principle, but I feel this is milking Tubular Bells just a little too much.

the inclusion of the vinyl is for those of in the know who still have a turntable,as anyone who is a fan of good sounding music.
go to your nearest hifi shop and sit down and really listen to one of your well known albums on bothe the cd and the deck.
anyone who say vinyl is obsolete needs to wake up !

I've still got a turntable! In fact, I've got 2 - an old valve operated Bush record player and a modern Technics one hooked up to a pair of Mission speakers. "Good sounding music" is in the ear of the listener.

good i,m so happy that you have but my point was not aimed towards whether you had one or not but you classed the vinyl as a gimmick.
why must the inclusion of the vinyl edition classed as a gimmick,thats the real point of my comment.
yes sure i appreciate that good sounding music is of course in the ear of the listener,but a decent hifi set up with a decent deck is one of the better ways to hear music.as i,m sure you agree ?
