5 stars Six CD box set that consisted of CD reissues of their early cassette-era releases. With the exception of songs that appeared on the "Afterswish" compilation, many of these songs from these early cassettes were the first time they appeared on CD. The albums are: "Erpsongs" / "Tantric Obstacles" / "Live Ethereal Cereal" / "There is Nothing" / "Sliding Gliding Worlds" / "The Bits Between the Bits".

The box set poked fun a Kellogg's cereal box, and as a matter of fact Kellogg's threatened the band with a lawsuit, but it was already discontinued by the time they threatened with the lawsuit, and each of the six discs were sold separately after the box set was discontinued.

Being very familiar with this era of the OZRICS, many of these albums, especially "Erpsongs" suffered from rather amateurish production and bad editing, but even these early releases demonstrates how the OZRICS became one of the finest modern space rock bands out there. Of course these early releases might not be the best place for OZRIC newcomers, but for the serious fan, these are essential, and if you got the "Vitamin Enhanced (Box Set)", you got yourself a collector's item!
