The Neil Young one when it's released
Bootleg Series 1-3.
I do have a Billy Bragg one that my friend got me for my birthday though. It's great. Apart from the Internationale cd.
The Wipers and Mclusky ones are cool but let's be honest, they are just fat cd cases as opposed to actual boxes.
comes in a box
thus box set?
ive never owned a proper one though :(
neil young's fucking archives will be out this autumn finally.
that changed colour when hot was pretty neat. Even if it was pretty dull to listen to
And Songs of Freedom by Bob Marley are the only ones I own and they're both ace.
Pound for pound it has to be the King of the Boxsets.
The Stooges Fun House Sessions and the Nirvana With The Lights Out one have their moments too.
I've got a pretty good 3cd Grandmaster Flash box set too.
shirley collins- within sound.
only one i have. pretty ace though, but some of the remixes are rubbish, especially blue monday.
may have to try and get more.
Also, box sets have to be listened to, and not collected and kept unwrapped. that is shite....
Nuggets is great, simply down to all the great bands it got me into. But the winner is quite clearly this
The best thing I own by a million miles and the greatest boxset ever
