I cannot tell if this version has been remastered again, but the sound is very good. You can only go so far with that process. All the discs are in cardboard sleeves – not plastic. Odd, in that considering these are the final goods, why place them in cheap cardboard sleeves? You get the two LP’s, the two CD’s, the HD version of final director’s cut of the film (with some needed newer film footage and some other scenes (Do I really want to learn to dance like Travolta? Nope), a 23-page booklet (not much new for fans), five art prints (Not sure what I am going to do with these, a movie poster (I won’t be hanging this in my living room) and a turntable mat. I am still searching for the deleted scene that holds the “Jive Talkin’” song in the background that was cut from the original film. Why Stigwood included that in the album is pure salesmanship – even some of the pressing had the Bee Gees ‘live’ version of it on the double album – odd. This is all fine but as a longtime fan, I really wanted more. Only the four ‘Serbian’ mixes are new and although they do not present new versions, the remastered mix is near perfect.
The movie seem very dated and in retrospect is rather depressing, even with great music. The HD helps, but one watch and I was done.
It is a fairly hefty in price and I am glad that the 40th anniversary is being celebrated, but what fans really want and what they get is not the same here. It does bear mentioning that the interviews of the actors and of the Gibb Brothers is from the 30th Anniversary edition. Not cool for a 'new' product. The nice boxing up of it all is good, but this is a novelty set which is perfect for a Christmas gift (Hmmm. Christmas is a month away!). It’s all about marketing. As much as I complain, I did still buy this box set. Maybe Capitol will release more…
When Barry Gibb released his album, “In The Now”, I bought the vinyl and a medium priced turntable. So now I have an extra turntable mat. It’s strange being a Bee Gees fan sometimes.

- The double CD is there [check]
- The Blu-ray Disc is there [check]
- The supplementary items (poster, over-sized booklet, turntable mat, etc.) are there [check]
So, what could be wrong?
For starters, the box! The quality is horrendous. I purchased two copies (one for myself and one as a gift) and both arrived looking "already used" while still in the shrink-wrap! (And let me point out, this wasn’t the result of poor packaging or delivery on Amazon's part – Each set arrived very well packaged for transit.) The problem is the materials used in creating the box. It is a foil embossed process, that when done correctly, can produce great results. But in this case, when done poorly, just looks cheap. Both sets exhibited multiple scratches, mars, and other defects where the metallic shows through, magnifying the imperfections. In addition, upon opening the set (just once), the entire spine looks like it’s about to give way if opened and closed more than a few times.
The contents inside are basically what one would expect, but even these could have better thought out. The artist prints are simply gorgeous (no complaints), and the poster and turntable mat are both a nice a touch. But the CDs are housed in a cheap fold-open cardboard sleeve, as is the Blu-ray Disc. What part of that indicates “Super Deluxe Edition” to you? And while the CD package fits into the box slot the way it’s supposed to, the Blu-ray Disc (which is smaller in size - 5”x5”) is dropped on the bottom of the pile like an after-thought, and left to slide back and forth whenever the set is opened or moved.
If only the box would have been better constructed, and perhaps, if the optical discs would have been bundled together as a 3-disc set, this release would have been a winner. But the way it stands today, you’re better off skipping the extras and just buying the discs individually, and… saving yourself nearly $50 in the process. You can nab all 3 (the 2-CD set, 2-LP, and Blu-ray Disc) for approximately $45 through Amazon. It’s a shame, because I really wanted to like this set. But unfortunately, that wasn’t the case.
