3 stars "I...I can't believe it!"

This is from a cartoon included in the book that comes with the boxset. It is the reaction of Floyd's manager when the band decided they'd had enough of Syd's antics and were going to perform without him. This is just one of the gems that you will find in this book, in addition to interesting timelines, reviews, and pictures. It's the only coffee table book I own, and the the only one I will ever need. The other highlight is the early singles disc, which can only be found here, though many of the songs can be found on other compilations and/or albums. As an added bonus, if you order the disks in the holder provided, the spines make a nice DSOTM prism image.

I was a cassette kid, and of course I eventually realized that I would have to upgrade to CD. Thus, the box set makes perfect financial and aesthetic sense. If you are just purchasing for the book and other bonuses, you may find your $100+ probable purchase price better spent elsewhere. As far as boxsets go, this is certainly one of the better I have seen, even if their entire discography is not included. I've been proud to display Shine On proudly wherever I've lived, and it's often a good conversation starter.
