I have had the Byrds set for a few years now and I visit it regularly.
The only problem I have with it are some of the bonus tracks added on.
Sometimes it is obvious why certain tracks never made it to the original albums.

Those two are definite bargains - haven't got the Jude one, but I bet that's a good one too.

I'm the opposite - I think The Byrds had more gems hidden away in the vaults than most other bands.

Thanks for the heads-up. The Sandy set is a tempter.

 I found her albums a bit "easy listening" in my younger days and haven't heard them since I took them back to the record library circa 1990. Be nice to reassess them. In any event, regardless of whether or not I like everything, I'm certain that, these days, I will find three quid's worth of enjoyment within them!

They had them both yesterday in their Meadowhall Store, they weren't in the genre section but some shelves which said "Crazy Deals" or something?
There was loads of Island stuff for some reason, I posted previously that at the time they had all the Richard & Linda Island stuff for £2.99 and all the Bob Marley back catalogue for the same price.

Im presuming that is CD rather than vinyl (either is acceptable though!)

Not in Reading on Saturday as far as I could see, though did pick up five Robert Palmer albums for £2.95.
