However decided to order as I fancied it all on vinyl esp the sessions, live tracks and the fans chosen tracks.
Demon has done an excellent job here, everything on heavy vinyl and remastered to a high quality. Good booklet with interviews, could take or leave the poster and postcards though.
These albums show to me just how underrated the JAMC were, from the feedback laden Psychocandy to the more acoustic feel of stoned and dethroned, there are no weak links in this set.
I was lucky price wise, got some kind of pre order price promise from Amazon and got for £112 but even at £150 this is great value and should be snapped up.
The JAMC never made a bad album. Some fans may (greatly) prefer the band's early, noise-driven material, while others may like their streamlined alt-rock attack of later albums. Others still may hold the gentle grace of Darklands or Stoned & Dethroned in higher regard. For this fan, I enjoy all of their albums equally, as I believe the Reid brothers to be amongst the greatest songwriters in their generation. Whatever style they chose to work in was fine for me, because the songs were always top-notch.
So the merits of a set like this rest upon how good the new vinyl pressings are, and I'm happy to report that they are stellar. With 180-gram vinyl mastered at half-speed, these albums have never sounded better in any format. I already owned all these albums on vinyl (a couple in different pressings), along with the CD versions, so believe me when I say that the sound here is a revelation. I easily prefer this set to Demon's earlier two-CD reissues.
I have but two complaints, and they are forgivable. First, Munki does not come in a gatefold sleeve, as my original Sub Pop pressing did. (On the other hand, Automatic is in a gatefold sleeve, and my original Warner Bros. US pressing is not.) Second, the tops of all the album covers have nicks and cuts in them, but I will attribute this to the vagaries of shipping from the UK to the USA -- these kinds of things happen sometimes.Read more ›
I must agree to the previous reviever that the actions of cutting the shrinkwrap plastic, opening the box cover, and taking the vinyls out from the individual sleeves for inspection are a true enjoyment. The individual album jackets and the pressings are so high quality that each individual album in this boxset deserved to be sold separately. In addition to the book, the boxset even includes a poster and some postcards.
And thanks to AmazonUK's price policy, the boxset only costed me £98 + shipping. I am so happy to be able to buy such a quality vinyl boxset at this value.
I hope Demon Music Group will continue to re-issue many more such quality vinyls.
