The only set I have is Kate Bush - This Womans Work, glad I have it and I still enjoy it.
A couple of people have mentioned Shut Up And Play Yer Guitar, wow, I'd love that on vinyl.
Evanescence released a box set recently but it's expensive and I try to find reviews re. the vinyl quality on any new pressings before purchasing.

Regards

Chas.

Only bought boxed sets fairly recently. Have Dire Straits studio albums, Queen studio albums and Phil Collins studio albums. Really enjoy them all.

In the mid 1970's & still on my shelf. The Gale box of Schumann & Brahms Lieder. Sheila Armstrong - Soprano & Martin Jones - Piano. It is in a nice (black) box, but the box only contains one record and the booklet.

Ira Gale made a famouse turntable and the GS401 speakers.

My parents had a box set of Eric Robinson World of Music (Readers Digest). I still have it.
10 LPs, mostly by country, and actually very well made and still very playable. Some good stuff in there!

Does 2 LPs in a DG box count as a box set? If so, it was either ;


Mahler 2 - Abbado, Chicago SO
or
Beethoven (Complete) Symphonies - Kubelik, Various Orchestras


Not sure if I bought The Last Waltz before or after the above, but really don't think, even with three LPs, it counts as a 'box' - it's three LPs in a slip case-type sleeve.

If that's a box, then does ELP's triple gatefold "Welcome Back My Friends...." count as a box set?



Does anyone else have the Time Life "Swing Era" box set, either as their own, or inherited from a parent? These were remakes by studio bands and orchestras of the classics, with a lovingly-assembled hardback book in each. My dad got them mail-order back in the day, and assembled the complete collection of ... 12? 15? boxes ....

Do I remember a fine performance of the Arthur Bliss music from "Things to come" in that set?

About the same time (just after getting my first turntable) I bought
- Trevor Pinnock's Handel 12 Concerti Grossi Op. 6 Amazon link Op. 6
- Vol. 14 of the Bach Cantatas on Das Alte Werk label because it had my favourite Widersteh' der Sünde BWV54 cantata with Paul Esswood/Gustav Leonhardt Bach%3A+Cantatas%2C+1st+ed+Vol+14+Leonhardt
- Zappa's Joe's Garage https://www.amazon.co.uk/Joes-Garage...joe%27s+garage
Happy days.

uh oh, this could be embarrassing, how about Gary Numan 'Living Ornaments'. The next box set I bought after that was Springsteen Live 75-85.

Love the Numan. I'd be more embarrassed about the Springsteen

My first one was the second of the two Genesis boxed re-issues of Trespass-Nursery Cryme and Foxtrot-Selling England By The Pound.
