I preordered it about a week before it was released, and was drooling all over waiting for it to come. Boy was it worth paying for the 2 day shipping.

The look of the box is wonderful. It was extremely detailed, and surprisingly sturdy. It almost looks like a real boombox at times (I actually tried to pull up the antennae on the top).

Inside is also really nice. The digipacks are neatly arranged for easy accessibility, and feature brilliantly high quality artwork on them. I thought they would have gone for replica vinyl digipacks like the Singles box set and the new album only release, but these are much higher quality, and contain the same artwork. The albums are also snapped into place for some stability (Sandinista! and the 3 bonus disk each have one in a slip though). The inside is ok (I would have put a bunch of photos in, à la the Bealtes 2009 releases, but that's just me), but thankfully the extras and dvd cases each have a mini booklet that gives some information on the band. I really love the little posters with the lyrics on them. The one for Sandinista! has some fun artwork on it, Combat Rock's has a photo on the band on the backside, and London Calling has several photos on it.

The magazines are also really nice, and super high quality. It's made of very thick paper, and feels really heavy actually. The photos in them make up for the lack of ones in the albums too. It's fun reading them since they are basically historical documents. The special edition one contains testimonials from the band (except Terry) and several friends that really give a bit of insight into the history of the band and the opinions of the set.

The stickers are really neat, and I'm probably going to scan them so I can save the ones from the set.

I'll openly admit to a wee tremble when this beauty got handed over by a relieved British postman - his arms reverting back to normalcy. This thing is big and heavy and I love every mad over-the-top inch of it. There's a ton of info to get through so let's do the Armagideon Times, Badges and Dog Tags... Released September 2013 and featuring full involvement with the band - "Sound System" by THE CLASH is a multiple CD, DVD and Memorabilia Box Set on Sony 88725460002 (Barcode 887254600022) and features the following:

A beautiful and thoughtfully put together Box Set shaped like a Ghetto Blaster Radio (270 x 420 x 100mm) - and once you open the flip-top lid - it reveals each item has been carefully placed inside in a numerical order - their exact placing within laid out in detail in the 'Service Manual'. Here are the contents - numbered 1 to 22 (1 to 8 housed in hard card book sleeves):

1. The Clash CD (Newly Remastered by Tim Young and The Clash)
2. Give 'Em Enough Rope CD (Newly Remastered)
3. London Calling 2CD (Newly Remastered)
4. Sandinista! 3CD (Newly Remastered) [1 to 4 on the left side]
5. Combat Rock CD (Newly Remastered)
6. The Clash Extras 3CD (Newly Remastered)
7. The Clash DVD (Newly Remastered)
8. Service Manual (Hardback Book Sleeve Like The CDs) [5 to 8 on the right side]
9. Flightcase: 5 Badges and Dog Tags [centred between-and-dividing 1 to 8 CDs]
10. Flightcase: 3 DIY Stickers: 85 x 140mm [behind 1 to 4 CDs]

Ok....paid $180.00 for this set, which is about as anti-punk rock as you can get.

REAL punk rock would be to steal it from a record shop, or in this day and age, pirate download it. Never forget, punk rock was about putting it to "The System"...."The Man"...."The Government"....

That said.....I'm an aging punk rocker, and there is no romance to middle age for going to jail about doing some dumbdookie stuff, especially if you CAN afford to pay for it.

Paul Simonen and Mick Jones both had a hand in this package....Mick in the re-mastering, and Paul in the package design....they give back to us with unbelievable amounts of time, shouldn't be too much to ask to give back some money.

YOU HAVE to handle the CD's carefully. Yes, they look like LP's and that is SPECTACULAR!!

But they are fragile and flimsy and if you are ham-handed and break them, you have no one to blame but yourself.

The sound of the new discs is really off the charts....I spent the time to compare the LP versions of London Calling, Sandanista! and Combat Rock to these discs and I do think that they sound much better on the Sound System release.

That is my opinion....this is played through Sennheiser HD 580 headphones on i-tunes....I ripped the CD's, rather than listening directly from them...and even with that nasty compression...they STILL sound better....fuller and more revealing.

The packaging is pretty cool. I'll keep it all intact, as the space I have to dedicate to displaying it, and remaining empty of other artifacts is simply tapped out. The buttons(badges) have your pretty straightforward safety pin backing which totally reminds me of the beginnings of punk visuals and execution. Feel free to do as you please.
