Could have and should have been better for the money
on 26 July 2013
I love The Doors and have all the LPs on vinyl and doubled up also on CD as well as other bits and bobs from the band. I bought this to add to my growing collection. This product would have been a 5* boxset if the box it's self wasn't made from very, very thin floppy easily damageable cardboard (another similar 7" set I have is a Oasis collection which has a much thicker box making it easy to store without the worry of damage). It's very flimsy and I can see it getting ripped or tattered very quickly. The records themselves are well produced in nice replica sleeves but for the money and the fact it's supposed to be a collectors piece you expect some better packaging to keep it in good condition. I'm not someone who buys to admire the product with no intention of opening or playing the contents and do play my records a lot but I still like to keep them in very good condition. The 7" records have no 45 rpm spindle adapter so make sure you have one at hand (again, could have stuck one in the box) my solution will probably be leaving the box on top of a record shelf so nothing can lean on it or remove the records and store with the rest of my loose singles.
