I wanted to listen to all of the CD's before posting a review........in one word: AWESOME......back in the early 70's, this group emerged as one of the trippier of the prog-pop movement.........doing lots of "covers" never hurt them, as they took songs of Dylan/Springsteen and others to top 40 heaven.........this box set covers the hits, the rarities, deep album cuts and un-released beauties............so very much "stuff" and so little "junk" that even if you are a casual fan of the group I urge you to spend a little to get a LOT........the seller was 100% on time and the price is well worth it......many hours of pure spacy-rock anthems here...........ENJOY!!!!

It's hard to write a review on this box set because I don't have too much to say about it apart from that it's pretty darn close to being perfect.

The remastering is excellent, and every album sounds great. One thing to note is that the albums all use the UK track listings, not the US ones. Any bonus or alternate tracks that found their ways onto the US releases are compiled onto a bonus separate CD called 'Leftovers'. Which to me was a great idea.

The replica LP sleeves look great, and are even individually wrapped in re-sealable plastic. One minor negative point is that the backs of the original LP sleeves aren't reproduced. Instead they're all generic white text on a black background. But you know the set must be good if the only negative I can find is the back of the CD sleeves. The set isn't very big either. It's not one of the unnecessarily gaudy things that take up lots of space on your shelf. The printing on the box is also a very classy black on black print. It looks good.

It is a bit pricey, but on the value side of things it isn't bad. When I originally bought it I paid about $135. That's pretty good for 21 CDs.

All music labels: Take note! This is how you make a proper CD box set.

Now if only they'd properly compile the original Manfred Mann band and Manfred Mann Chapter Three...

Terrific set, especially for someone like me who never replaced their vinyl until now. One little quibble though as the inner sleeve for The Good Earth was replaced with one from Live in Ersingen. Not a terrible mistake, but at close to $200 it shouldn't happen.

just a beautiful box set - do you need 21 cd's by the Earth Band,most likely not. Will you be glad you have them, 100% yes.As another reviewer said this is the way box sets should all be done. Just wonderful!
