i'm new to the list and just getting into the airplane at age 31. i bought surrealistic pillow last weekend and was hooked. i got baxters and volunteers over the weekend, and i've definitely found a new favorite band. (fyi, i usually listen to jazz or classic rock, but i never got into the airplane for some reason.)
here's my question: is the boxed set worth it? being released in 1992, the sound quality is lacking (i've listened to it--the mastering is muddy and washed-out-sounding). however, there's a bevy of unreleased material--unreleased for 1992, that is. how many of those unreleased 1992 tracks are still unreleased in light of the 2003-2004 remaster series? and, are those tracks that may still be available only on the JALY boxed set worth the justification of purchase (i can get it for $25 used, btw, not full retail). thanks for filling me in!
