For those who care.... it seems there hasn't been much attention paid to detail on this new CD box set..
Apparently, "Stretch Out And Wait" is the World Won't Listen mix.. and not the 12" b side with the original lyrics.
"Rubber Ring"/"Asleep" segue has been cut off in the middle. :(
I know, they're all minor details, but isn't the beauty supposed to be in the detail?
I'm amazed anyone would buy them really, it was always about the 7" vinyl, the sleeves, the etched messages on the record.
Buy the original vinyl off eBay, ignore the reissue repackage repackage tat.

It the box set really that rare though?? If someone put it on the net, then it wouldn't be that rare :/ Is the box set itself, which is rare???

Doubt that many will have been made, bit of a niche market.

I've got a great new Smiths boxset - It's called Songs That Changed Your Life - it's a 6 disc limited edition box. There were only 1000 boxes pressed, all are numbered. Let me know if you're interested or want more information - musicguy@yahoo.co.uk!

Hello musicguy,
that's an interesting box set you've got there. Unfortunately our aim here is not to take income from the 4 members of The Smiths and give it to somebody else, i.e. you
We are here solely to pass on concert music and studio music that will never see the light of day via a commercial release. This way no member of The Smiths will miss out on much deserved money and we the fans won't miss out on incredible music from the past.
If however your offer is to share the music from these 6 discs at no cost to the members of the forum, then please continue but not on the forum itself.

Anovella as an esteemed member of the forum surely you would know if this was a legit box. Just because it's on Ebay doesn't make it legit.

I remember those dodgy European pseudo box sets that appeared back in the late 80s/early 90s.
I think they had 3 vinyl LPs in each, completely dodgy and unauthorised.
Doubt these are even vaguely legit.

Looking at the contents they most definitely aren't!

They actually look pretty good, what does the booklet have in it. Also what's the quality of the recordings ?

I'd be a bit concerned at the CDs exceeding the 74 min mark.
They do look very nice though.
