This volume explores the time immediately after Syd Barrett's departure, when Pink Floyd were still writing singles and at the same time developing their own unique, more instrumentally-based style. There are non-album single releases, plus a recently discovered session at Capitol Records studios in Los Angeles, BBC sessions and other tracks.
DVD/Blu-ray includes the recently restored promo clip of Point Me At The Sky, some international TV performances and a selection of song material from other television shows:
-Early singles, BBC Radio sessions
-Tracks from Capitol Studios, LA
-Promo clip, TV appearances, rare footage
-Replica memorabilia from the period

The box is like a very nice digipak, with clear plastic trays for the CD and DVD/Bluray discs, a few pages of photos with a tracklisting, with a hardback cover, so it feels like a light hardcover book (about the size of two dvd cases). Seems sturdy enough, and nicer than usual CD size CD/DVD digipaks. The memorabilia is kept in a pocket, which is nice, but I could take it or leave it, not the most essential thing. There is also in the pocket, a little paper booklet with a short essay about the band, and full credits for all the tracks and video (also somewhat repeated from the tracklisting printed along with the photos).
I really like that the movie discs are region free, so when put in the player either it goes straight to the menu, or starts playing the video immediately, there's no having to sit through an FBI anti-piracy warning in five languages. ( I wish ALL movies on disc were region free or had no piracy warnings). For the videos/interviews that are in a foreign language, it has subtitles available in multiple languages for the spoken word portions. The Bluray has that optimum video quality and easier to use menu access, but the DVD video quality is very good as well, on my TV I would be happy with either (same for the sound quality). The remastering of the video looks great.
