    Hi John,
    thanks for your great review of the Henry Cow boxes. I have been aware of the existence of the group since 35 years, but never heard a single note of their music.
    After reading your article, I`ve ordered the first box...
    and what can I say? This is the most moving and beautiful music I`heard in years. The other two boxes (live and studio) are on theit way. Thanks again and sorry my English isn`t so well (German school English)

    Hi Joachim,
    Sorry for the late reply; don't know how I missed your comments. Thanks so much for the very kind words; for me, Henry Cow as a seminal group that was very important to me during my own formative years, and so the release of this box set was especially meaningful to me. Glad you're enjoying it as much as I still do (at least, that's how it sounds), and you needn't apologize for the language; your intent was crystal clear.

    Best wishes!

    Hello, I saw the studio box but what struck me is that the cardboard box was a tad too big for its contents, viz. it contained diamond box cd's still in the plastic (already a bit alarming, because in boxes you often get digipack editions), but though the box seemed to suggest there was room for a booklet, it didn't contain a booklet. Was this copy of the studio box a regular one, or ? Thanks for any reply that can shed some light.

    The studio box was only added to make the entire series fit. There was no booklet, and it was intended to fit the original jewelcase versions which are, if you order the box with the CDs, what's included - they didn't repress or remaster, just made a box that would line up with the two boxes from the 40th.
