Yes, thanks, this is very assuring. Hey, I just got a update notification from Discogs about this box set. The April release is a new pressing without the limited 3000 numbering: Emerson, Lake & Palmer – Fanfare 1970 - 1997 (2017, Box Set)
Good detective work, thanks for sharing that.
The original numbering was pretty bogus, placed on the throw-away outer wrapper under the shrink wrap.
I taped mine to the inside of the box lid.

Interesting, a "new" pressing. What do think the chances they fixed the Trilogy 'bonus track' thing?
The discogs note clearly states no difference other than lack of numbering.
Soo... slim to none?

And don't forget the "flawed" bass guitar mixed in all channels on the last track of BSS.
Oh, the horror! :eek:

Don't bother me, YMMV.
When I saw the used prices on this go through the roof, I cheerfully bought the BSS DVD for $50 to have both.

I think it's great this is getting another release.
In spite of the "defects", to my knowledge it's the only single blu ray ever released containing four full classic out of print surround albums plus bonus tracks.

I purchased this box set when it initially came out. I got it primarily for the 5.1 mix of BSS. Plus I thought it would be nice to have for the live material. I was very disappointed in this box set. I kept the blu ray disc and gave the rest away to a friend. Sorry guys but I personally felt like I spent $180 bucks on a big piece of crap. I love ELP. I think it is a crime how their catalog is being treated.

I have my pre-order in for this set, but my only interest is in the blu-ray disc with the 5.1 mixes of the four albums. Acoustic Sounds states that these are to ship this month, but I'm wondering if the release date of June 11 will end up being the ship date as well? Only a few days left in April, so we'll know soon enough.
