Brilliant addition to Drake memory,
This review is from: Tuckbox [Limited Edition CD Box] (Audio CD)
I am not one to really comment on these things but read some of the reviews on here about the box and thought I would impart my own view in response. The box is wonderfully packaged, a really nice collectors item. Inside there are 5 posters, each wonderfully done, which look fantastic when lined up next to one another. Really rare photo, that when you conisder you'd normally pay in excess of £5 for a poster it's pretty good value in itself. Yet on top of that you have the 5 albums, again all wonderfully packaged in cardboard sleeves. Again considering there are 5 albums in there, on top of 5 posters and the box, it's pretty ridiculous value. Granted if you already have the albums then it might not be worth getting, but you can also purchase some items off the Drake website I think. Still if you are short on any and a Nick Drake fan, it's a perfect gift. Really couldn't recommend it more. I actually only had Five Leaves and Pink Moon in hard copy so really glad to get this.

Thank you for summing up my thoughts on this set. Great packaging, and it's nice to have all five CDs in a consistent format with the paper sleeves and liner notes. The posters are a nice addition. I had three of the CDs and several of the LPs already, and I'm really glad I have this set.
It's good to have the information that the CDs are re-releases of the previous CDs, and that they contain no new material. There are no misrepresentations of the contents of the CDs, and each person can make a decision on whether to buy this set based on this knowledge. Interesting to see the comments on capitalism at work. IMO, it's pretty cool to see a limited-edition release of Nick Drake's music in 2013. If the set provides no extra value to you, then you don't have to buy it. To still have the opportunity to purchase this music is a wonderful thing.
