Would sound interesting if I had the money to buy expensive box sets anymore....or the attention span to read things longer than a tweet anymore.
Where would rock 'n' roll be without feedback?

Sounds good to me.

This collection brings together in an inexpensive and definitive edition the full contents of all earlier releases, with the addition of a further 60pp booklet of newly unearthed, or commissioned, band commentaries, pictures and other documents prepared specifically for this box - as well as re-mastered versions of all the studio CDs and the rare bonus CD (Cabinet of Curiosities), which came with the subscription edition of earlier live boxed set. This collection offers a major retrospective of one of Britain’s most resilient and elusive bands - and a redress to the rather over-tidy story told on their 5 officially released LPs.


90 Euros is a good price, I'm seriously tempted.

I was 41 years old before I realized that they were probably named for noted composer/weirdo Henry Cowell.
Can't get on with the band at all, I'm afraid, but Cowell's stuff is interesting (if only intellectually).

Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

^^^ I only just realized the old comic strip Andy Capp is a play on "handicap."

Duh.
