a CD quality version of the Trouble In The Message Centre demo is worth the price of purchase alone; that demo is one of the best things they ever did IMO.
also the demo of To The End had Justine on i think. maybe that's why it's missing :/

although that Wembley gig would be NO FAN's idea of one of only 2 gig DVDs to release on a 158 quid box set.

I know. So, for 4 Cds of 'interest', and 2 or 3 DVDs of mmm, you have to buy all their albums again?

Oh, and a book too.

As an XTC fan, and out of everything in this box set, I'm definitely looking forward to hearing the aborted Andy Partridge Modern Life Is Rubbish sessions. It'll be great to hear for once and for all why they were junked!

Fan club single 'Close' appears to be missing. The only other thing I could nag about would be a desire to hear the early samba/calypso version of 'The Universal' and I'm sure I recall reading about more 'Think Tank' outtakes with titles like 'Chicken & Fries' and 'Saturday'. Shortly after the album came out there was some talk of an EP containing these leftovers.

2 months pass...

Remastered box set has been done proper according to Stephen Street who says this in Record Collector

".. EMI were planning to use the 90's production Emasters

".. EMI were planning to use the 90's production EQ masters, but i wanted to make sure it was done right.. we had to go through the 1/2 inch tape archives finding the right takes.. there was quite a bit of detective work"

It's all being remastered by Street, and the same dude at Abbey Road (Frank Arkwright) who did The Smiths' box. can't wait for these.

Emasters -- when you want your tape mastered electronically.

Didn't vote in this, basically ignored the band when they were around, found all signature hits annoying right away or soon enough--the only album I have is Blur, and "You're So Great" is the only song I liked. But I bought a very cheap double-compilation two days ago, and I think I've played "Out of Time" 12 or 15 times already. Such a beautiful, beautiful song. (Thought the great video up on YouTube was user-made, until I read otherwise.)
