    I find this to be a beautiful looking set that I will be happily adding to my collection come August. Will be nice to have all the material in one set!

    Everything is cool except for CD1, they should have filled up the thing up to 25 tracks with alternate takes so it would really be: ALL THE MATERIAL IN ONE SET.

    Its a nice complement for the 3 dvd set, but it is not a must for collectors, I mean, what´s new on it? I will buy anyway casue its really a good looking Box set.

    it looks fantastic! Kudos for that.

    But I'll skip this one. I already have enough material of the 68 special and since all shows and recordings sound quite the same, it offers to little for me to justify the purchase. And to be honoust: I hate the sound of the special (besides the 'unplugged sessions'): too many horns and a mono-feel.

    finally we get "It Hurts Me" and "Let Yourself Go" as separate tracks!!

    i have loved these particular versions of these two songs since i was a little kid listening to my "Legendary Performer Vol. 3" picture disc.

    i had hope that the "Let Yourself Go" FTD release would have these, but it was more of a rehearsal thing.

    very cool box set. kinda makes the "Memories" set and "Tiger Man" obsolete, huh? i wonder what wonderful version of the comeback special awaits us in 2018?

    They all have a special place in my collection atleast.

    Anything from June '68 you can never get enough of.

    This is probably the Greatest Rock N Roll music all together on One Boxset
