    Malc mentioned in another thread that the Dischord box set was his first box set;what box sets do you own or have owned?

    I think I`ve had only 5:
    Rolling Stones-Singles Collection(4 tapes)
    Robert Johnson-The Complete Recordings(2 cd`s)
    Mercury box set of Jazz Singers(4 cd`s)
    John Coltrane-The Classic Quartet(8 cd`s)
    Louis Armstrong-The Hot Fives And Sevens(4 cd`s)

    What box sets do you want to get?

    my list:
    Joe Henderson-Complete Bluenote
    Herbie Hancock-Complete Bluenote
    Miles Davis-Chronicle
    Bill Evans-Complete Riverside
    Thelonious Monk-Complete Riverside(15 cd set :shock: )



    Stooges-Funhouse 1970 The Complete Sessions :aliensmile: (6 + 1 single)
    Cheap Trick-Sex America :roll: (4)
    Ramones-Anthology Hey Ho Let’s Go (2)

    Lot of reissues I purchase come seperately not in a boxed set, Iggy has a couple new reissues out with bonus tracks, Radio Birdman, soon Dinosaur Jr :mrgreen:

    On my list currently…none :shock: But you never know what will come up :wink:

    Yeah, I wish I had the Nick Drake "Fruit Tree" Box Set, but the one with the FOUR LPs, so there hasn’t been any messing around with "Pink Moon"…, oh and even though I have all the songs on other records, I’d love to have the Ramones’ End of the Decade Box Set…

    The ones I have include:

    Guided By Voices "Box"
    Ike & Tina Turner "Fabulous!"
    Elvis Presley "100 Super Rocks" (I guess I need only one Elvis item and this is the one),
    Shellac’s "1000 Hurts" is also kind of box-ish, although there’s only one LP (plus a bonus throwaway CD) in it…



    Sorry, I spoke I half truth. I also own Simon and Garfunkel: The Complete Recordings, but that’s on Vinyl, and I’m without a Turntable right now.

    I want Rhino’s Give Up the Funk anthology. Anybody seen this? Its designed to look like a stack of 8-tracks. :lol:

    On the Dischord-the only complaints I have right now is that some of the video footage is pretty crappy. And I don’t understand why the chose to represent Rites of Spring with "Drink Deep" I’d of chosen "For Want Of"



    I`d like to have the Guided By Voices box set,though I have one of the discs from it(King Shit And The Golden Boys)I was lucky to find in a used store years ago,they just sold that one but not the rest of the set :?
    The Stooges one would be worth getting 8) there`s a Townes Van Zandt one I`d like to get too.
    I`ve had a few 2 cd sets I`ve forgotten about:(in the old double jewel cases)
    Tim Buckley-Morning Glory
    T Bone Walker-Complete Imperial Recordings 1950-54
    Blind Willie Johnson-The Complete
    John Coltrane-The Major Works

    I forgot about John Coltrane-Live In Japan(4 cd set)



    I’d like to see a Subpop, Merge, Kill Rock Stars, or K box set.

    Hey, Buckingham Rabbit! I thought I was the only one one these boards who likes (hmm…loves) Francoise Hardy! That’s pretty cool! I have no F.H. box sets, though. And I also forgot to mention that the boxes I talked about were vinyl (the best format, you know). The only CD multiset I can think of that I own would be the BUZZCOCKS’ complete thingy. No wait: I do have an "Initiales B.B." Brigitte Bardot 4-CD-set. Her music is obviously more, say, "shallow" then Francoise Hardy’s, but sometimes it’s quite cool nonetheless. I also own some 7" box sets, like a CRAMPS early demos 4er, the DAG NASTY comp. and the "Eight Songs for GREG SAGE AND THE WIPERS" thing.
