Poor Packaging From Apple/EMI and Amazon (Packaging Review)
on 31 August 2014
Please Note: This is a review of the slipcase packaging only for fellow collectors
Whilst I was very happy with the music content of these discs (the BBC sessions are superb), I was less than happy with the terrible packaging. The slipcase is very flimsy, and as both of the 2CD BBC sets come in gatefold cardboard packaging it offers them no protection at all against wear and tear. I cannot understand why they did not make the outer packaging plastic in order to offer better protection.
I bought that as a completist collector, and was seriously let down by the lack of thought that has gone into this 'collector's box.'
Also, Amazon's packaging to ship these discs is just another layer of cardboard with no bubble wrap, so when this set arrived it had been crushed in the post, and the outer box as well as the BBC sets were ruined. I send it back to Amazon, only to have the same problem again second time around.
If you want this in one piece I would seriously considering buying it from an actual shop (spoken like a precious Fab Four collector!)
