Does anyone know if this set was ever released digitally or on any streaming platforms? It still doesnÂ’t seem to be on Spotify and I was hoping it would eventually show up there.

And/or, anyone know how likely it is for these Rhino sets to become available streaming?

I’d love to hear the stuff but I’m really out of the habit of listening to physical albums in any format!

I've looked everywhere and it's nowhere to be found digitally. The set is a must have though- pristine remasters and buried treasures- my favs Good Things Come to Those Who Wait and the smoking hot live version of Homeward Bound. Future Games in particular must be listened to front to back and then on repeat a few more times.

Just buy it and upload it to whatever. It’s dirt cheap, even compared to buying it all back in the day.

Ordered the discs. I have a real soft spot for the 1971-74 albums in particular; Christine was my gateway to mega-fandom and these albums IMO contain her best work. These days, I love Danny’s work just as much. “Sands of Time” ranks among my very favorite of the band’s tracks.

Excited to hear!

Blinker you are in for a treat! Let us know what you think after you've heard these masterpieces.

Default Not my gateway, but…

Boy do I love these songs just as much as any.

I often wish I could say I got into the Mac in this era. These songs just always seem to fit my mood.

I have to confess I only listened to the box set after Christine's passing, but I am so glad I have finally done so. Such better sound quality, and some of the bonus tracks are must-haves (Purple Dancer, for example).

Just one question. I assume that the live disk (Live From the Record Plant) is the 4-piece version of the Welch band -- Mick, John, Christine, and Bob (no extra musicians). Am I correct about that?

I do wish the box had more extensive liner notes, but that's a minor quibble.

There was a second keyboardist named Bobby Hunt, who had been in Head West with Bob.

The main one on tour was Doug Graves.

Thanks for that. I had a bootleg LP back in the day that had both Hunt and Graves on it, if I remember correctly, and my memory of it is that their keyboard playing was sometimes more aggressive than I thought was necessary. Is there an easy way to tell when Bobby Hunt is playing and when Christine is playing?

I think both of them(the guys) were mostly playing organ.
