These 4 CD are welcome 'cause old "Diamonds" was released 15 years ago and today they are very hard to find. How much they cost?

Got my box, too. I'm totally disappointed, that stuff is worse than these Tiger Man issues: very poor sound and don't tell me it's uncut (here and there maybe) and undubbed (never!!!), lot of crackles and noises (from LP's someone found in the attic ?) I paid 65 euro, that is 65 too much.

Just Got The Box. Great collection, no doubt...sound ranges from a 4 to a 5+, no rare pics at all in the booklet, but a lot of detail and narrative regarding these sessions. This collection is truly what the title says, undubbed masters of all the great songs included, so if you are looking to hear Elvis during takes and stuff (American Ways like) not the collection for you. Overall this is an ok release to have due to the gems songs included but I could have done without it...in some takes I can't tell whether it's the undubbed version or the damn master....

Hi, I suspect that many of the songs are faked undubs - knocking out of channels etc. I would suggest that anyone who has a doubt about tracks on bootlegs checks out the oracle - keithflynn.com. You can check out the songs there. I have the original four cds and after reading keithflynn.com, I figure there is a fair element of "adjusting". Having said that, there are some tracks that are genuine based on above website. As a matter of fact, I would suggest to anyone who isn't certain about the content of a bootleg to have a look at the website before handing out your dosh.
