    Ordered from Burning Shed. Price is so much lower than expected. Pleasantly surprised to see the postcard is also signed by David Jackson. I shoulda bought two!

    I dont think we need to worry
    Hammill and Guy been involved in the stereo mixes, makes sense.
    It will be good :)

    Burning Shed is asking £143 to deliver to Canada! Let’s say that BS has not been very creative to keep the shipping fee to a reasonnable level.

    Ouch! 34 to Sweden.
    143 seems crazy, or?

    That's not within the realm of acceptability. $200 and probably intercepted at the boarder with additional "fees". Even though I don't buy from Amazon Ca anymore, the Giant on the Box and Nirvana Songlife sets have needed up there for an ok price.

    Thanks for setting the record straight, and for all your hard work. Really looking forward to this box.

    And on a second attempt of completing the order shipping is now £65. Something funky in their shipping calculation tool. Still not acceptable. I will order from somewhere else, that’s it!

    Now I understand - this is not a remix - it is called the 'single' version, so I know nothing about it - this is the quote from the press release "Single releases — “Refugees” (Single Version), “Killer” (New Stereo Mix), and “Pilgrims” (New Stereo Mix) will precede release of The Charisma Years Box, with further singles TBA."

    It must have been an original alternative mix.

    Hi Stephen, can you comment on who did the mastering for the material that was not re-mixed?

    Well if I wasn't already excited now I might lose my mind.
    My only complaint so far is these type sets can be hard on the disc.
    I can imagine the graphic choices kept the price down a little maybe so no problem there I'm not buying it to look at.
    I'm in for the box and the records.
    Wishing they were doing all the records though. Wave , World , Quiet and Vital are all great imo. Pete Howls like a banshee on Vital , that record is pure punk prog.
    The entire band is quite aggressive on that one.

    I also pre-ordered this from burning shed... I purchased the big KING CRIMSON-"1969" box from them and while the cost is higher I find their customer support amazing(chloe!)!!!!

    Yes my customer service experience with BS was always memorable in a positive sense. They were also sorry for shipping fees been so high since COVID.

    I hope to reorder back from them one day.

    The 7'' single version of Refugees is now available on youtube and some (all?) streaming platforms.
    It sounds nothing like the horrible, squashed and compressed 2005 version, it is in fact quite beautiful and with much better dynamics (DR10).

    Well, this is interesting! I'll wait for somewhere with more reasonable shipping to Québec, but i'm definitely in for this.
