Hello all,

I've received the box this morning from amazon.it, paid 50 euros with  free shipping (early preorder) so it seems I got a better deal than Mary (around 61 chf ). The packaging and graphics are very good but the booklet introdouction by Tim Page is only 1 page and half as mentioned. I'll be able to check the video/sound quality on my 55 led tv only this evening.
By the way if you still have not ordered the 6 CD box (GG In concert) do it asap 'cause due to the recent european copyright changes (from 50 to 70 years) it will be likely retired from the market. A very good and detailed booklet by K. Bazzana is included as well. At the moment it is still available at good prices on amazon

Best Regards,

  Mary,  I'm so pleased that the quality is good.  I'm going to set aside a few days just to watch and enjoy.  Can't wait.

    Nuncle Pat, 

    The little booklet has 14 pages with no spectacular artwork, just a short intro by Tim Page (in
    English, French, German) with the rest of the pages given over to complete descriptions and 
    credits concerning the content of each of the 10 dvds. 

    Happy to report that the entire product is 'clean and crisp', straightforward, upfront about what
    it is and so far the quality is just outstanding. My only lament is that the few programs GG did
    in the US couldn't have also been included, a real pity.

    Now back to the tv screen for me.

    Hi Mary

    Blast ! Amazon Germany wants 57 Euros from me, tells me I have to bloody wait for shipping date Oct 7th and with the usual speed of the swiss post that might well be after the 12th at least....oh bugger ! last time I was so keen to get a box set was in September 2009.....or when a new Terry Pratchett novel gees released (also in October !)

    Wel, at least I got the Pink Floyd Immersion Box for DSOTM to keep me company...should be here tomorrow and I know what I'll do on Friday....

    Please do give details to both f_minor and GGU on details what exactly is in that box, Hell I can't wait !

      O happy day,

       I sauntered into the local FNAC (multi-media store) this afternoon for a look around at what's new
      when lo and behold there IT was on a shelf in the Classical Music dept.: The CBC 10 dvd Gould box set.
      Special price CHF 69,90 instead of CHF 84,90. So I bought it. I reckon that had I ordered it from Canada
      or the US I'd have ended up paying more or less the same price once you tack on the postal charges and
      besides there's no waiting, I've got it here and now. What a swell surprise.
