I'm sure it's a great box but much of this we already have on single discs, collections or a "centennial" mega-box. How is the mastering and the transfers? Why should this box set replace another one? Inquiring minds want to know!! Please tell u about the box, we already know the history :)


Thanks Marc! I am checking out your old posts and have subscribed to your blog. I look forward to reading more of your writing in the future! :)
