This looks like a wonderful release. But but you have ask yourself has KB gone completely mad. Where was the build-up, no fanfare, advanced publicilty or sneak previews - what a great idea let's release a deluxe set on the market in the same period when we have:-
John Lennon - Imagine
David Bowie - Loving the Alien
Bob Dylan - More Blood on the Tracks
The Beatles - White Album
The Police - Every Move You Make
and of course that creme de la ceme of a deluxe re-issue The Rolling Stones Beggars Banquet (errrr!!!!)
Post Christmas, I reckon there's going to be a few bargains around.
but it certainly is a salient point that there is a lot of costly box set releases coming out for this Christmas. The Beatles and Dylan might interest me but I do wonder whether I might be best to wait until the new year and hopefully save some money - or do I risk missing the train altogether, how "limited" are these releases?
Compared to the full Beatles box set they do all seem far more expensive in 2018 than 2013.
