    The only thing I like about this release is the concert on disc 2. The sound on some of the rehearsal stuff on disc 3 is horrendous. The multi track "live" recordings on disc 3 are boring. This set is a bloated misfire.

    If I want to listen to TTWII I listen to the FTD version.

    Disc 2 is the best, like some of the rehearsals and live segments on disk 3, really want a version of "The Wonder of YOu" live

    For Me the Mary In The Morning on Disc 3 was worth the price of admission; I simply love this performance; Disc 2 was not too shabby either....all in all I liked this one! But Jerry is right the FTD is really nice! But I would not want to be without this either!

    These three cd's get a rediculous amount of play on my Ipod and in my car. Phenomenal from beginning to end.

    TTWII is awesome. I managed to get the vinyl edition and it's fantastic!

    The concert sounds even better on vinyl and the artwork and package is superb highly recommended.

    I Second The Opinion On The Vinyl Special Edition Box Set.It's An Incredible Package And I Thought The Design Was Fantastic With A Modern Twist.
    The Sound Is Perfect To My Ears.I Play All My Vinyl On A Thorens Super160 With An SME Arm.
    I Have Both The FTD Special Edition And This 5LP Box Set.I Cannot Fault Either.
