At the very least I'm in for the 3-cd set, the super deluxe works out to $200 Canadian so I'll have to deliberate The full 1978 Hammersmith show is definitely the bait on this hook

Well I suppose if it comes with a King's Ring with velvet pouch and neck chain how could anyone possibly pass this up?!!!!!

Okay, the cheapest CD option for me, just to get the live show.  Don't need all the other trinkets and stuff, don't have Blu-Ray or any of that high-end audio foofaraw...

Here's what I posted at TRF

 

As I'm working this weekend, I won't have time to give the platters a spin but I just unboxed the whole thing. I wanted to confirm I had all the parts and the proper 4 vinyls records. I read last night on the Steve Hoffman forums that some people were getting 2 record 1's and missing one of the other one's or some other combination of missing/duplicate records. Fortunately I have all the proper discs and other stuff.

Visual/tactile/construction stand point. I like it. The box is well constructed, the front artwork is printed on the box not a paper insert, the back is a printed sheet but adhered to the box. Inside there's a black velvety lining. The 2 lithograph style inserts a fine, I wonder if the 1 that has the puppet king on it was an early idea for the cover. Essentially it's the same but with a few more ruins in the background. The turntable mat is OK I guess, not sure if I will use it. The gatefold fold out holding the 4 vinyl records is nice heavy constructed and houses each record in it's own sleeve I guess is the word, as in they don't jam 2 records into one fold of the gatefold ala Archives. There's nice photos on the inside gatefolds, some are familiar pics others I've never seen before. The tour book is nice glossy heavy weight stock and what I assume is an exact replica in its' contents. . The 12" x 12" book is again, quality construction with a lengthy writeup. Don't know who wrote the "essay" or it's contents but I will read it while playing the blu ray in the near future. The ring on a string is cheapest thing of the box, it's a little lightweight but on the other hand it will stay in its' velvet pouch as I'm not about to adorn myself with Rush jewelry. The set comes with a download code which is convenient. 

Look forward to having some time to dive in.

Played my 40 year old vinyl copy of AFTK today. That'll do for me.

I’m not a fan of the live performance at all. They’re pretty sloppy compared to how tight they were just three years later.

Hey, remember way back when in the '90s when they said they filmed a T4E show but couldn't release it due to syncing issues? Is this that show?

The Steven Wilson surround is as good as expected, the man is a genius i think

 

The vinyl sounds better than the remastered cd's also not surprising

 

The package itself is really well done

Only just now listened to 2112 from the Hammersmith Odeon show.

 

So pleased to hear the 'Close Encounters of the Third Kind' sequence that Alex sneaked into it. =)
