I was able to use 65BT4X2D3 for 10% off the order and its still 54.99 for the pre-order.

So, who's going to give a review of the set? Surely everybody who said they were going to get it has it by now. I have it, but haven't had a proper chance to peruse it yet. Just got it in the mail earlier today.

Just finished watching the concert DVD. Unfortunately the quality was pretty much as bad as the DVD in the Purple Rain set. I mean, it was neat to be able see footage from that era, but it just looked really amateur. I think it was done by a guy with no experience filming anything, standing at the sound board with a cheap camcorder. As for the DVD itself, no menu, no credits, just starts and ends.

Listening to the unreleased material, you can see why most of it was unreleased. I've said this before, but the idea that he has piles of classics sitting in the vault appears to be a myth--all this material was from his prime and it's so-so. "Bold Generation" was the one true standout to me, but would love to hear other opinions.

More or less I agree and I'm the BIGGEST fan. I really liked bout 4 or 5 total of the unreleased ones.

I have to say, listening today and the unreleased songs are better than I thought on first listen. I went straight to those this time rather than listening to the album and the B-sides, so maybe that helped to hear them on their own.

Was the deluxe edition a limited set? Why are these suddenly selling for over $100 on ebay?

I have that question too since it is not listed at Amazon unless it was pulled because of a manufacturing flaw?

Rhino Records has the deluxe set.

Was $69 the retail price that most people paid for the set?

Not far removed from that--I think I paid around $60. $69 is reasonable for the set, but not the outrageous prices the gougers are apparently charging elsewhere.
