This box-set is a bit of an oddity due to five albums (one a double) plus some bonus edits being squeezed down onto 4 discs. Nowadays with ripping and streaming it's not a big deal to 'reform' the albums (as 3 are split across discs). As for sound quality I give them the thumbs up. None of the albums were ever audiophile fodder and nothing here stands out as meddled with or dynamically compressed. The material is faithful to the original vinyl (I had them all on original UK pressings so should know) and is the best of all Edgar's solo work. 'Ages' seems to come in for some critical stick but I find it relaxingly 'familiar' rather than repetitive. Super value too as I got my set brand new at well under £3 per album. Buy this and get the Edgar W. Froese 'Macula Transfer' on Eastgate and it's job done.

Its funny-I had the LP version of Pinnacles and I always thought the track entitled Pinnacles was impressive. The one track that stood out as not being representational of the initial LP version was the last one on this 4 CD set-the 21 minute version of Pinnacles-the amazing solo sequence that runs through part of the LP version sounds like a watered down edit on the 4 CD set. I found that disappointing. I didn't pay a lot for my copy of 1974-1983 but nonetheless...The rest of it sounds like the original LP versions so its a good listen otherwise.

'Epsilon In Malaysian Pale' is 5 stars.
