Both. However the 2cd/dvd set may be what most people would want if you already got the previous d-Tox boxsets.

I can't stand Howard Jones, but even so - when I see this level of detail [re: NEW SONG (PORTUGUESE 7″ SINGLE MIX)] I can't help but be impressed. At £90 I'd better be! All the same, if they ever took any album I loved to this level of detail. I'd hate to want to buy such a costly set. So far, albums I cherish have gotten as far as 3xCDs, with the "Roxy Music" being the highest priced edition which I got in a flash sale for half off. There was no way I was going to put up the $150 for that; even for as seismic as that album was. The days of only Classic Rock getting this level of fan-milking attention are now behind us, I guess.

Could be me but I miss Pearl in the shell's B-side Law Of The Jungle. Same goes for the Megamamamix of Look Mama.

Oh by the way: Hide & Seek (Long Version) is probably the best 80's ballad 12 inch you will ever find!

"Law of the Jungle" is there on disc 2. It was also on the 2003 2CD Best Of

Good point. Technically, a "Mix" means it SOUNDS different, because it has been MIXED differently (compared to the album version). BUT in my experience, the people who compile boxes use the word "Mix" when they should have used the word "Edit" instead. An "Edit" means it SOUNDS THE SAME, but has only been shortened, either by cutting out some parts, or even by a fade-in or fade-out. Then there is "Version", which could be any of these. In my experience, there are few, if any, REMIXES/MIXES (they usually mean the same, but a REMIX is always done after the album version/original version) ("RE") done for the Portugese market by any artist. So, most likely it's an EDIT done for radio. Maybe someone knows better.

Do you think the super deluxe will go down in price or is it worth getting now?

I'm pretty happy with the 2Cd/Dvd set. The boxset on the other hand will probably be on amazon through a third party seller for a discounted price.

These things typically get released at cost and they might have a dip in price over the first few months as the market absorbs all of the sale copies. But few things get pressed up in the tens of thousands of numbers any more, and in as little as a year, they can begin to skyrocket in price. Watch closely and act when your comfort zone begins to be pinched. I want to have an app that watches prices on goods at URLs I specify and can select a price comfort zone that would send me notifications when the sale price is within it. Any coders?
