Rick Rubin asked a while back if I'd be willing to listen to a set of this box's 9 test pressings. "After all", he punked me, "you are the last person in North America with a turntable". I was more than happy and honored to do this. I was asked not to disclose this until the box's release date (October 16th) was announced, and I honored that request.
A few weeks ago the publicist said I'd get a box well in advance of release date (and before just about anyone else) and that I could review it at that time. The box arrived yesterday, Friday, September 26th. I dropped what I was doing, set up the video stuff in my listening room and recorded in one long take the "box opening".
I hope you enjoy it! The review will soon be published on AnalogPlanet.com.
