I suggest that they drop the jewel cases and put the artwork and cds in clear plastic sleeves, possibly with protective inner sleeves for the discs. This would save space and money - because they would be using the same product as in the ordinary reissue series.

Nice, very nice! Now I am afraid of the price... Should start saving money.

hoping for a series of new masters v.1 thru v.5; box sets with 12 albums each, full-size artwork, a bound-in booklet with all artwork & liner notes scaled down 2:1, plus, in each box set, right here on stage, ladies & gentleman, that's right, you heard right, a rockin teenage mystery disc ... with extra materiel from the 12 album sets, only available in the box !! ... compelling all the pre-order/early-adopter types to buy the entire fz catalog one more time for the world


even better; ½-box sets where you can order any 6 of the 12 volumes, plus the mystery disc

the stick is for pussies

Sure...having all of that material on one USB stick with fantastic sound would be much worse. :roll:

after thinking this thru, the stick is not for pussies; it resolves a serious issue for some people ... the stick would be one of the only ways to make an anonymous cash purchase of virtual fz product

Back on the complete box thing...I worry that as soon as I start buying these piecemeal, GZ will come up with some package offer and I will have to buy the shit AGAIN! And I am not talking about her offer on Barfko-Swill now.
