    Just ordered 1, 2 and 3 from AB Sound (CA) for just over £11 each. Nearly put them all in one order, but remembered our dear friends at HM Customs. :mad:

    Ok finally got a chance to listen to majority of discs,overall I would say they are worth buying as they definitely bring more to the recordings ,there is more clarity to the music & you get to appreciate the many layers of PG's music
    So all in all a thumbs up.
    I would also recommend that with the 5.1 mix of UP that you give it a chance as you really appreciate the depth of the recording with repeated listening
