The complete masters are not worth the money to buy.
If you have the FTD releases and the recent regular outings of Sony, you have it all !
If you are wise enough to buy japanse minlp cd's you have the even beter sounding than anything else of the regular releases.
I bought also the complete masters numbered first run. btw he second runvis the same without a number and signature of Ernst.
I seriously regret it, twice , somebody offered me €1300 for my set and I said no.... (What was I thinking..)
Finally I sat down and started to compare the masters, the serious new releases by FTD where an upgrade the regular masters , the japanse masters were miles ahead ...
I love the package quality !! bit too big but the music is what counts and I seriously overpaid.
Other fact, the beatles released the year previous a stereo and mono box , also completely remasterd masters it took them 5 years to do only their albums , The ELvis catalog is much bigger and it took only 2 years to do it .. sure .... if they would have done that from the multi tracks , we would ahve had a dream complete masters box...
