Just cracked mine open & whew.
Perfect condition.
Wow, what an exquisite set.

I was a bit hesitant ordering this but I equate it to a fine dining experience or VIP tickets to a favorite concert.
Expensive? Yes.
Worth it? Yes.

Thank you Neil & 4AD.

Got a prompt reply back from 4AD today! They are mailing me a new, bottom box!! So, anyone with a similarly damaged box, email them and you'll get a replacement box. Yippie!!!

I just ordered The Band 50th box after listening on you tube and fired up QQ to see what chatter there was about it, then saw the post about the Gene Clark and listening to it on the tube I'm really enjoying the music, I'm not going to get the box set though, but if it ever came out as a Blu-ray or SACD I would definately go for it.

Received mine today in less than perfect shape but, to my perspective, acceptable shape. I agree that the box is a flawed design. All that aside, the content is brilliant and the music is a home run. Money well spent.

Received this today and unfortunately another severely cracked box. The contents seem too heavy for the box structure. At least the important stuff seems in good condition.

Mine came yesterday -- haven't opened yet (saving for Thanksgiving holiday). Looks great on the outside (the two floppy disc singles were separate).

As long as none of the actual non-box contents were damaged, I'll be ok. Maybe the undamaged sets will get premium price on resale :devilish:.

Mine will "become" undamaged", once I receive my new box.....which they sent.

I contacted the supplier about my damaged Gene Clark box and they said they’re sold out of the set and could either give me a refund or try to replace the box; I said I’d prefer the box and they said they are placing an order for more boxes from the manufacturer and it will take a month.
