Great set - crap packaging of discs
on 8 December 2013
Completely agree with other recent reviewers that it's an excellent set but the packaging of the discs is completely crap and Sony should be held responsible for this oversight. The original set although being 11" was a splendid and neat package, the new one is nearly 8" and inferior. Perhaps Sony are economising? The CD's sure do scratch at every extraction, will Sony replace? I doubt it. I also surmise that the rerelease is another opportunity to extract some more hard earned cash from Springsteen fans.
However although boasting that the CD's are HDCD, there is no 2013 additional information and you do wonder whether he sound quality is actually any better than the original 1998 edition.
Musically however, it's a great set but think twice about buying it again if you already have the 1998 edition.
