Well, its a nice box with 10 great cd's. Bit of a disappointment with the
extras, cos there's none of the patches, badges, inserts a la last years
beatutiful effort - however, its the music thats counts, right????
regarding the discs - all - or what i have heard of each - sound great. In
Rafters, Manchester - which i only had the boot cd of - includes about 8
mins extra - nice fresh sound, obviously not taken from the vinyl bootleg :
) - great gig.
Veterans Auditorium, LA - again, only heard the Dimensia In Excelsis'
version - ouch!!! This version is apparently taken from 2 tapes that TG made
(so not a crappy audience version!) - there's still a little distortion, but
generally a huge improvement! Great gig, which i can now enjoy fully : )
Kezar Pavilion, S.F. - not a huge difference from the Mission Of Dead Souls
disc - however, apparently it has been put together using two high quality
recordings - one with binaural head and the other from the mixing desk. You
also get a previously unreleased track from the pre-performance sound check
- not bad at all - sounds great.
Also, REALLY good to have all the German shows in their entirety and not all
over the place as we have previously had.
General overview - excellent discs and box, but would have liked a couple of
extras (patches/badges/inserts etc) - but never mind. You do get a free gift
thing (won't spoil the surprise!) - tho i am not 100% sure what it is - will
see what other reactions are : )
