Holy @#$% !!!! WOW. Just received this amazing Box Set a few minutes ago and i am speechless. Comes in a small piece of luggage with different European stickers from different cities on it. Inside is the GOODS !! Every show ( 22 shows ) and an amazing book with lots of photos. I got the personalized Box Set, i think that was the first 3700 people.

First show to go on will be Rotterdam 5/11/72, one of my favorite cassettes from back in the day ( mid to late 70s ), and also vault keeper Dick Latvala's ( Dick's Pick's ) favorite show from the tour.

Well here we go. This is some Box Set. And with the Beacon Box Set that i got a few weeks ago ( which is also amazing ) i am set for listening for a long while.

Awesome! One of my first introductions to the dead was that '72 album. I bet that wasn't a cheap purchase!

Enjoy!

Here's a thread with some pictures if you want to see what it looks like. I'm still waiting for mine to arrive. Hopefully tomorrow.

I got my box set, youse guys!!! It looks awesome. I have number 2209 of 7200.

Be careful the package seems to be fragile, and the imitation leather seems to be prone to dirt and dents. I'm currently trying to find the box a cool dry place where it will be away from the elements!

Also the various CDs are really hard to get out of their sleeves. The people at Rhino have long since given up using snap-in cases... the discs are just shoved into the sleeves where they can get scratched extremely easily. After trying to pry out the discs I'm sure they will be in bad shape.

Exactly Barry, the cardboard sleeves used in this box set are thinner then the Road Trips series. Be real careful taking these out, already have a small tear in the first cd case i played today. Was thinking how much better these would be in the cases i have in my Beacon Box, the plastic ones.

Wonder why Rhino continues to use these hard to get the cd out sleeves. People have been complaining about them since they started packaging in them.

yes these sleeves are a pain and damage cd's but as far as i know its the bands who request the eco-friendly packaging. i got a queensryche cd on RHINO records that was released in 2009 and it comes in a hard plastic case

How nice of the GD org to offer up the discs for the same price w/out any extras for the same $450 now that the initial 7200 are gone.

YEah, I've torn most of the sleeves to the discs already... accidentally, of course.

I don't know, I think it's great that they did offer the "music only" version, as a lot of people complained they couldn't get them.

73 cd's for $450 with or without the extra stuff is a pretty amazing deal. I know a lot of people can't afford it (I couldn't... I'm going to be hurting paying this off my credit card), but it is still pretty incredible.

Plus, every show has been completely remixed from the multi-tracks, this isn't a slapped together remaster... It took a long time of lots work and studio time. And It sounds great.

One of the last ABB box sets that I purchased was something like $750. So I think it's great either way. And if people don't think it's great, they won't and don't have to buy it!
