Those reviews quibbling about the non-inclusion of unreleased material in the "Oh By The Way" boxset are missing the point. While the release of new, preferably early live material would be much welcomed by us Floyd devotees, this set is simply about releasing all of the studio albums on cd reproductions of the original lps. As such, it is a wonderful package which takes us older fans back to the halcion days of lp packaging. Having all these albums in one package is also greatly welcomed as the "Shine On" boxset didn't include "Piper At The Gates Of Dawn", "Ummagumma", "More", "Obscurred By Clouds", or "The Final Cut".
The repro cd sleeves are wonderfully done, even matching the original jacket style and material. All posters, stickers, and inserts are included as well. "Wish You Were Here" is sealed in black shrinkwrap, with the original sticker on it. I'll take it for granted that the sleeves and label are correct as it will never be opened for obvious reasons. As a final touch, the cd labels crrectly match the original vinyl releases. The poster and coasters included are just a little bonus.
Although I would have appreciated the inclusion of "Relics", it must be remembered that this was a later release of early singles and non-album tracks, akin to a "hits" package. In closing, I'm delighted with my purchase of "Oh By The Way" regardless of the fact that I already owned all of the albums on cd and lp. If you want a copy, get it right away as only 10,000 were made. Now if only David and Roger could put aside their differences long enough to get some '60s and '70s live stuff cleaned up and released.
