2 stars To review a box set ... hmm

There are box sets and then there are box sets ... some have hidden extras, bonus tracks, detialed band histories, new insights, band family trees, back stage photos etc: OK for this set that would be a Zero then.

Well. you'll have read the separate reviews for the albums so you will know all about the dodgy recordings & raw feel of the content. So putting all that aside .......

It's a great box, no really it is: classic Ozric & a bit contraversial all in one

It's getting hard to find. Very rare. Teh "woodgrain" of the Ozric world (if that analogy is lost on oyu check out the acaeum). And there's the rub: this is THE Ozric box set. Ain't no others. No sirreee.

This one has collector written all over it. I've got all the earlies on tape (a couple bought at the time of release - the others were lost & bought second hand), and yet this box set has the sort of nagging quality when it comes up that onyl Mrs Doyle in Father Ted could equal: go-wan go-wan go-wan go-wan go-wan go-wan go-wan go-wan you know you want to: in Horslips terms a fortunate cup of tea

a stonking (5) star collectible fans only release: a very good 2 stars
