thought i would end some speculation... oddly this is the only site which has the details... no floyd sites, no fan sites, not even storm's site has the details on the artwork..
Thank you, perception, that is a trick of almost Jedi-like proportions! :shock: :lol:

yes... i stand corrected... i had not seen that site till you mentioned it... i regularly check hmv japan for updates as they are quicker than other site [such as amazon.de or amazon.co.uk as the hmv listing was up more than a week earlier to the amazon listings]

How about including some (crisp 'n' clear) video material from The Man And The Journey gigs into that Bonus DVD?

There are times when I realize I have better things to do than read discussion forums.

Even if it is a rip-off, I will probably buy it anyway, since I've only got most albums in digital form. I'd love to have all their albums at once, tangible and with the original artworks.

For the original artworks, get the vinyl LPs - 144 square inches of art on an LP cover is almost six times bigger than 25 square inches of art on a CD cover

If this box were to be issued on vinyl, I'd be tempted.

I have to agree with the above statement. For vinyl artwork, the original vinyl is the way to go.

In this day and age, a multimedia DVD with the artwork in ridiculously high resolution would be the best option, really. Good enough so that you could print a 2mx2m poster with it and put it on the wall without shame.
