    Very good price at Amazon UK - 25 quid, and then tax deduction for non-EU residents.
    However the box is out of stock currently, so only preorder is possible.

    It's on the 'to buy' list, but it's about half way down.

    Seems to be out of print on Amazon uk. I have placed my order, but I don't believe they will be able to deliver it.

    What's the sound like? Most of the stuff I've heard elsewhere sounds like ass. Some of the worst most distorted recordings of that era.

    My copy has just been delivered. It's certainly a lovely looking package with hardcover book, mini sleeves and photocards. Some care has clearly gone into it. As to the sound, well I'll have to report back: I'm at work now. Judging by the notes in the book it again appears to have been a labour of love for the producer, with considerable effort going into locating master tapes and Fame's son involved in the compiling and mastering etc which hopefully augurs well.

    Other than what's on disc 1 are there any other BBC radio tracks on this? There are loads that would have been available via BBC Transcription discs.
    Would have been nice if they could have found/used Blue Flames instrumental tracks from the Sound Of Fury radio series. I think an acetate exists of a complete show from that series which features at least a couple of instrumentals by The Blue Flames.

    Ok. So while engaged in the ripping process last night I listened to a few tracks from across the set and was pretty impressed. The first "Flamingo" disc was clearly no sonic marvel to start with but sounds vivid, atmospheric and exciting enough. "Yeh Yeh" looks to be the original true stereo mix as opposed to the more commonly found (at least on CD) mono. Sounds great. On this point, some albums are presented in mono, others in stereo and the bonus tracks a mixture, presumably based on sources available, their condition and/or the judgement of the compilers on what gives a better representation of the material or would be of more interest to collectors? I'm far from being a expert on Fame's discography and my stereo setup is modest but I'm very satisfied with this set. The miniature albums are even gatefold and the booklet notes are very informative and refreshingly well-written. A great companion to the Graham Bond Organisation box from a little while back.

    My box has arrived finnally. I have ordered from Amazon UK, but it arrived from Italy (you know, with that special Italian sticker).
    I dod not compare it A-to-B with a couple of Japanese CSs, but I can say I'm pretty happy with the sound quality. IMO it is mastered better than many other recent remasters bearing "remastered at Abbey Road Studios from the original master tape" label.

    Anyone able to answer my question upthread ? Are there any more BBC tracks on this other than on disc 1. BBC Transcription have a fair few of his sessions included on Top Of The Pops discs. Be a shame if they haven't been included here unless a separate BBC set is being planned.

    I'm assuming the vinyl version is just the original albums, sans the bonus material? That amazon track listing can't be correct.

    BBC tracks are only on disc 1.

    For those who are interested: DR values are from 8 to 13. Average per disc: CD1 - DR11, CD2 - DR10, CD3 - DR10, CD4 - DR11, CD5 - DR9. Not bad at all!!!

    Thanks. I guess maybe they're planning a Fame BBC set at some stage.

    Yes the vinyl includes only the original albums, though a code is included to download the bonus content.

    Thank you for this, what great programs for GF fans. I have the box and think it is very well done, even after having all the Japanese mini lps and the In Crowd box set. I love this early era of his music, and the band sounds great on the radio session.

    Tis a great box set, Georgie's first four LPs with extras, plus a whole disc of extras, and beautifully packaged. At the time of its release a couple of months ago the BBC showed a documentary on Georgie which I missed at the time so must catch up on.

    Note that the first disc, which is the LP Live At The Flamingo, whilst a great little concert is not in very hi-fi quality. This is how it was on the original LP though.

    There are BBC tracks on the fifth disc of the set also.
