I was indeed. I told Martyn at an after show thing and apparently he didn't know - he called Glenn over and said 'Did you now Berenice is M's daughter?' and Glenn did.

Just as long as they are as good as mine, that's fine with me. I appreciate the candor.

i'm reserving judgement until they are actually out, and i hear them.

just saying something is a vinyl rip isn't proof.

the other masters may not be great either.

this is Edsel we're talking about here.

Already saw part 1 this afternoon. Pity that Glenn and Martin didn't discuss 'the audio quality' for this boxset. They seem to know about everything regarding the boxset, except that topic ...
Frustrating. But hey, maybe they saved the best for last and it's in part 2. :wink:

*update:
After watching part 2 last week there was (again) no information about the source of the audio from the guys. They don't seem to care I think. The only thing that was transformed was how great the boxset is. On Amazon there are two 'unboxing' videos from Glen and Martin (for vinyl and CD) and again, no reaction, only information about artwork etc. It seems we have to wait for the release date and the community.

You can hear samples of all tracks here
https://www.juno.co.uk/products/heaven- ... 719867-01/

Mastering seems to be a mixed bag..

Also, and I hope this is an error with the samples and not on the CD, but Counterforce is repeated twice in error in place of Counterforce 2 and Contenders" (US 7" version)

It's not an error i'm listing to the CD's now and it's fucked up just like you mentioned. I haven't listened to the full 10 CD's but how i dread to think how many more errors i'm going to find. I should have known better when i heard Edsel was doing this not to touch it with a barge pole :evil: Let Me Go [Endless Version] is repeated as well.

I guess Edsel will have to redo the boxset and send out replacement discs just like the Dead Or Alive one a few years ago?

well the website samples don't duplicate 'let me go (endless)', but they duplicate the tracklisting for 'sunset now (extended version)',
but the correct tracks play, then 2nd one is 'this is mine (extended)'.
