    I'm kind of torn about whether or not to get it... I have all of the albums already, but my copy of Dreamy is on vinyl, and I don't have some of the bonus tracks. Plus, I'm just a sucker for box sets, and I'd like to read the fat booklet that comes with. Anyone have any thoughts on the box?

    Holy crap, I didn't know there was a box set out! What's on it? I already have every album and many of their one-offs from various compilations.

    All the albums, the Screaming Trees collaboration EP, and it looks like all the 45s, too. A few live songs, and some videos. 96-page booklet written by Lois.
    It does not contain some of the songs from the 1983-1985 CD: "Primitives", one of the versions of "I Spy", and one of the versions of "Down at the Sea".

    Okay, I think I have all of that, but being a sucker for box sets myself, I'm sure I'll break down and buy it anyway.
    It's too bad it doesn't carry both versions of "I Spy" and "Down at the Sea," they're all great.
    I've got the beach ball and you've got the song
    Everybody's gonna sing along
    gonna sing along
    gonna sing along.

    Now I'm going to be singing these insanely catchy songs to myself all day. [​IMG]

    Alright, here's the deal. I went ahead and ordered this set, but there was a screw-up either on my part or that of the vendor I bought it from, because I've been sent and billed for two copies of it.

    I'll part with the extra set for $50 plus shipping, which is what I paid for it and which happens to be a damn good deal. If anyone wants it, just send me an email. Otherwise, I'll eBay it or send it back for credit. The set is limited to 5000 copies and won't be around for much longer.

    It looks pretty nice and includes a fat booklet full of pics and info about the band.

    I'm still undecided. I've seen it at a couple of local stores (for about $57) but I'm about to move and I need to hoard my pennies. Decisions decisions!
