Just a quick check before I decide to buy them :

The Unknown Pleasures, Closer, and Still releases from 2007 (total of 6 cd's)

Of course I have the cd's (from Jap box set) already so it would be for the live recordings only....

Are they worth spending 35 euro's on?

That’s arbitrary. Some folks don’t like compression and the loudness war. I think there’s less (or no?) compression on the albums from the Heart & Soul box set (the 1997 edition). Having said that, I’m not sure if that means they haven’t been tampered with in any way. I suppose the early 90s Jap editions offer the best sound quality.

Thanks for the replies.

So I'll stick to the Japanese Box below (Pic from internet) and keep an eye out for the live recordings.

One of the 2007 cd's offered for sale has been signed by Bernard by the way.

The seller doesn't know it's his signature on the box.  [biggrin]

Not sure if it increases the value at all...
