^ Seems we have certain GG fans who think $25 is cheap (only half a parking ticket) for bad sound, rehearsals, demos that has been released elsewhere.
 
Very well, but I'm not that rich and listen to other progressive rock bands which I will use my $25 to spend on better sounding material that has not been released before

My point is that if this 5 cd box-set had been released 15 years ago it would have cost at least a hundred bucks. I'm not rich either but the price is more than reasonable, dude. I'm interested in this package, I buy. You're not, you don't buy. As simple as that.

I don't have any of it already in any other form so it works well for me.

Just my personal recommendations:
for live material
Playing the fool (2LP  or1 CD) excellent material from the 1976 tour (on Under Construction there are some more tracks of this tour
Totally Out Of The Woods (2CD) Excellent BBC recordings from 1970 to 1975
Out Of The Fire (2CD) Excellent BBC recordings, two concerts one from 1973 one from 1978
This covers the best quality audio live material IMO, quite cheap to get too
Under Construction (2CD) First major collection of unreleased GG material (demos & live) very good quality & interesting booklett
 
Scrapping the barrel (3cd & 1 Cdrom) Best of the rest, mainly for fans so.
 
The Bootlegs, (same politics as for Zappa's Beat the boots) are unedited and most of them especially bad audio quality.

Tadpoles keep screaming in my ear
"Hey there! Rotter's Club!
Explain the meaning of this song and share it"
