Finding the "Syd Barrett - Crazy Diamond" box-set

I've been looking and looking for this box set. Does anyone know where I could get it in Australia, or if need be, on the net for a good price.

I have it, although I am not particularly fond of the artwork, or the box. It was a present.

The album covers are reversible so that the original cover can be shown.

If I didn't have it then I would rather buy the albums separately.

Have you checked them out used on Amazon? That's how I got mine for 30 USD; a worthy investment, since I went from having Wouldn't You Miss Me and the contents of Radio One from HYGIY to having Syd's whole illustrious discography and more.
And yet I never knew the covers were reversible. Wow.

I'll just try Amazon, and also have a long hard look around the local record stores.

Barrett, Madcap Laughs and Opel but with additional takes appended to the end of the disc. Also included is a nice big colourful book thing as shown in the photo in the first posts on this thread.

I got one from HMV in Liverpool in 2000. I like it! 8)

I was not offended at all Keith. I didn't even notice. That kind of comment is just being friendly in Australia isn't it?

I see it on E-Bay all the time ,There's usually at least 3 copies on there.I got the albums seperate myself.I'm not sure about the bonus tracks though .They can be a bit upsetting.
