The Kraftwerk Catalogue discs come in a smaller standard bluray sized box which I have housed on the bluray shelf already. The huge box it came in is empty except for the coffee-table book that I have never looked at once. It's very expendable.You can just toss it on the Autobahn. ;-)
@Stephen W Tayler has already remixed all 5 studio albums by Be-Bop Deluxe in 5.1 surround, and all 5 remixes are incredible!Wow, this box looks incredible and priced very fairly! Just currently waiting for more purchase options in the U.S. before committing. I don’t own any surround music mixed by this remix engineer. How would you describe his approach…ambient…adventurous, etc.?
That's my reasoning as well. Plus, I got burned by importcds on preorders for Ultravox and TFF last summer. I eventually got them anyway just this last week, but I'm not taking any chances with the VdGG box.The ImportCD price is pretty good, but when I add in their shipping and tax it comes to about $195, which is almost exactly what Burning Shed's price amounts to - I think maybe I'll go with the Shed as I know it'll get here intact.
So, the "bundle" from Burning Shed...those DVD's...do they have the 5.1 mixes on them? What resolution are they?Here are the 3-disc sets (2CD+DVD) with the same release date September 3rd), priced £16.99 each:
Burning Shed, release date now adjusted to 3rd September..He To He Who Am The Only One - Van Der Graaf Generatorstore.udiscovermusic.com
I've been wondering that too. I can't justify buying the big box. I think of all the A-list bands (Pink Floyd and The Beatles) box sets and I never listen to the extras from those. VGG is a band I am trying to like, no way I need more than the original album and the 5.1 mix.So, the "bundle" from Burning Shed...those DVD's...do they have the 5.1 mixes on them? What resolution are they?
Thanks for the heads up on this German online shop. Just placed my order. Seems to be the best price.Ordered for 135€ at JPC
