    Maybe it's one of the early copies that get sent out to reviewers and the like?

    And obviously things are often "in stock" before the actual release date. Maybe they got their dates mixed up.

    Just snagged mine for $38.15 free shipping of course, from Deep Discount used GINGERSNAP for an additional $4 off the sale price of $42.15 with sales tax. I'm betting that's about as low as it gets.

    Nope. Still cheaper at ImportCDs. And their sale should be soon.

    Dig... I did say 'about' as cheap as it gets. So no info in ImportCDs pricing?

    Not by much for me. The importcds current price with shipping and tax is $37.84 and Deep Discount is $38.15 with tax. I'll be buying the This Was set from Bull Moose for $38.97 at the local NH store with no tax. Rather support Bull Moose with the price so close than any of the others.

    I listened to the previously-unrelased-on-cd first stereo mix, and even though is mostly a reversed version of the widely available one, it feels better, at least on headphones.
    The book, as you imagine is another excellent chapter of the Tull encyclopedia these reissues are offering. Lots to be read!

  9. The original stereo mix has not been released on cd prior to this box? What did they use for the original release and the version in the "Originals" box?

    There were two stereo mixes (not counting the new remix). The one included in this set was never issued on cd. Like I said, the differences lay mostly on panning.

    Past CD issues have used the U.S. stereo mix (which is on the DVD in the new set). I don't know the whole history but I suppose the tapes of the U.K. stereo mix have disappeared; promotional pictures of the new set show that the U.K. mix is a "disc transfer," which I'm guessing is a synonym for "needledrop."

  14. So is this how the stereo mixes stack up?

    1) original UK stereo mix, never previously issued on CD, currently included in new 50th Anniversary set (on CD only) -possibly a needledrop
    2) original US 1969 stereo mix, issued on 1st issued cds, the originals collection and 2001 remaster, and the 50th Anniversary set (DVD only)
    3) Peter Mew 2008 stereo remix issued with the 2 disk 40th Anniversary Collection
    4) Steve Wilson 2018 Stereo Remix issued with the 50th Anniversary collection (on CD and DVD)

    Stereo mix #1 doesn't sound like a needledrop to me, but I might be wrong, of course.

    Six, actually. Mono, two vintage stereo, two stereo remixes, and the surround.

    That's the chronology for stereo, yes.

    You also have the 2018 SW surround remix and the 1968 mono mix of course.

    A minor footnote, perhaps, and not the full album, but we could also add that just two tracks - "My Sunday Feeling" and "A Song For Jeffrey" - received a stereo remix for the 25-Year box set.

    I wonder if these songs qualify for "the most officially remixed tracks" in Rock.

    They don´t pirate this kind of stuff.

    But I´ve got a couple of pirate russian cds, and it´s hard to tell they are pirates.

    They have pirated a few of the Tull booksets... without the book part. Easy to tell them apart then, but people still buy them.
