    If I'd seen this set for UK equivalent $50 I'd have bought it but it's only for disc 5 really. Don't get me wrong, Lord knows I love a box set but all the other stuff I can live without.

    I bought the hires version from Pono so I don't have the BR concert or the detritus but I have the music which is fine by me. Would I like the vinyl box? Sure but not at prices ot's going for today. I haven't even looked as I know it's going to be more than I want to pay for it. Coincidently I was listening to it on my walk today and when I walked in the house I decided it didn't need to end so I plugged the Pono player in the main system and let it fly. So much good music to enjoy.

    I'm quite happy with my 4 CD set. The 5th disc doesn't look that great, although I wouldn't mind hearing Ballad of Easy Rider from it. The DVD of Santa Monica would be cool. But at the prices? Forget it.
    The 4 disc set is damn fine.

    This is correct, the quoted info. was not. I just double-checked my own Best Buy Exclusive set.

    This set is now selling for big bucks. Glad I snagged my new corner split set for 50 bucks a few years ago. One piece of scotch tape and the split fit together perfectly, can't even notice it. Now I'm hanging on a Beach Party file that is showing one seeder but I'm getting nothing. I hope the seeder pops back in, I really want to check it out! The deluxe Runnin' Down A Dream DVD set is also skyrocketing, got one of those for me and one my brother a few years back too.

    I bought the Live Anthology set at Best Buy a few years back for $29. Wish I bought a few at the time. I ended up selling it unopened for about $80 thinking that I wouldn't listen to it. Well that was a mistake as I've gotten back into Tom Petty the last few years especially in multichannel. I did a WTB in the classifieds for the Live Anthology set and got a mint set for $70. So glad I have it as the Blu-ray has been playing for the last 2 hours and still have quite a bit left.

    3 hours. 5 hours total, it's a monster.

    markp I am always thinking about Jazz.

    Yes, you are right about all 62 songs being on the blu-ray. Not sure how I got that wrong. In any case, the blu-ray is great sound, and I love putting it on and listening with it like a 4+ hour concert. Plus the 96/24 lists with DR of 13 vs. the cd's at DR of 9:

    Pardon the pun, but it's a real heartbreaker for me personally that I snoozed on the blu ray version of this set. One of my most coveted releases but it's getting too high for me. Wish they'd reissue it.

    I didn't realize how much the vinyl box is going for. Crazy!

    Reading is fundamental. Beach Party is a 1982 Cameron Crowe directed MTV special that was only aired a few times. And now I'm "stealing music" because I want to watch it? :laugh: I've spent plenty on Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and that's fine with me, don't worry about it.

    The big fat box is a must have for all Tom Petty fans. The artwork is one of the finest I've ever seen. Iconic. The blu-ray... what can I say, 62 great sounding Petty live songs in one disc.

    I have and love this set but don't really love the sequencing. I mean, each disc is great and works on its own, but I'd prefer the whole thing didn't jump from year to year, back and forth all over the place. I kinda wish it were closer to chronological by performance date. Then the material would roughly follow the songwriting/album arc, excepting killer latter day versions of older tunes, and I think it would be a more interesting listen hearing the band evolve that way.

    It would be somewhat of an inconvenience, but you could make some discs with your own preferred order, no?

    I just picked up a new deluxe box set for $80 at the House of Guitars here in town, the outer box was a bit dinged up but the contents inside were mint, not a bad deal considering that the set is going for $200 or better. I agree with everyone, this is an incredible set, feel fortunate to have a copy.

    Huge inconvenience but I could arrange files as such and might now that I think of it.

    Can someone walk thru the 400 Days video? How many live performances? Any details on which shows are included?

    Save a search on Ebay and one day when you don't expect it a reasonably priced Buy It Now will come into your email and you will snag it. I buy a ton of oop cd's on there, trust me.
