    The textured cover appeared on the UK 1st pressings. Nice touch. Usually the U.S pressing would omit certain aspects of the UK releases.

    Skimmed though the CD and you know what...? I like it.
    Will have to compare to other pressings when I have a chance.

    My box just showed up. Will listen tonight as I’m on my way out. Very excited to go through everything and hear how it sounds.

    Is the studio album remix in this set different than the 2015 release and if so, does it sound demonstrably better? Thanks for any info/impressions.

    Set just arrived. Very nice set. Amazon delivery double boxed with the set in original packing box from WB. Scrapbook is ok. Would be nice to have a bit more info on the album, recording, etc. but it looks nice. However there is quite a bit of overlap with the tourbook pictures and info. Textured cover for the LP is wonderful. Only downside with my set is the live LP cover is dented. A little bit of a bummer but probably not really worth the hassle of returning. More importantly, will give it a listen this weekend. I did note the 2020 remaster date so it will be interesting to hear how this compares to the previous Pearce remaster...

    There’s just so little material available from this time period of the band, no doubt due to them basically managing themselves. Is this ad for the album in the book?

  10. Heads up when taking out the discs. They are mini-LPs, but they are not the completely flat versions we are used to. They spine is really wide and the discs, in plastic sleeves, come flying out very easily.

    Ive seen these replica MSG posters around, but never could find an actual or who the original source was. Probably a fake. The Thank You poster ad shows the MSG date as Dec 3.

    From what I saw on Youtube, the book lists Aug 4th and Dec 3rd. Seems the Aug show is doubtful, since the Thank You add mentions December as their debut appearance at the Garden which corresponds to your recollection.

    They sound great to me, I can confirm the live albums part 1 & 2 are Asbury Park ‘75.

  19. Okay, who's going to be the first to confirm if "Blow On A Jug" is on the vinyl? :D

    By "material" you mean promotional advertising and what not?

    I can't remember too much about that, but there was some. And whatever they were doing it was rare even during this self-management period to have an issue of Creem, Circus/Circus Raves, Hit Parader, RS, etc. without something about them from what I remember. I do recall that when Sabotage came out it went straight to #1 in the Circus Rock Chart and they were on the cover of Circus Raves with an extensive interview. RS had a very positive review of Sabotage, iirc. They were back with a vengeance and out on the road again. Then they did Kirshner which was insane!

    I’m really digging this remaster. Sounds great on my system, got it cranked and it’s very very good.

    I picked it up already and it’s great. Totally different to this older issue pictured above. This is the new one....

    Still waiting for mine to arrive :mad:
    I love these ‘Special Edition’ one-offs, I’ve an attic filled with hundreds of rock mags, so I’ve basically stopped buying them unless it’s a whole magazine dedicated to the band.
