If they're not releasing new material I don't give a rat's nut sack.

PS Take my comment with a grain of salt. I'm the worlds most selfish Saxon fan..... I want a new album each month.

I've already preordered the standard edition, before knowning about the signed one.

I love Saxon live, that's why I'm interested in every live release. For me, Saxon is the best live band now. 40 songs is a very good idea, it will be a great compilation for the car. I do not like compilations from studio tracks. I ordered a 747 signature edition, of course. By the way, a great idea for the number of 747 copies. In January I also ordered a CD with a replicas setlist and I bought a ticket for a concert in London.

However, the description of the box is "tour pass". Does anyone know if the "tour pass" is just a badge or a real concert entry?

How many different versions are there ?
I've seen 2cd with set list - 3cd but still only 40 songs and the Vinyl 747 limited box.
Is there something i'm missing with the 3cd version being spread over an extra disc ?
Also why the heck haven't they included the CD in the 747 box set as I would have bought that but as I don't have a turntable I won't as I don't need another dust gatherer.

I’d like to get this but personally think the price is somewhat steep! Saxon fans, particularly those who collect the deluxe box set type editions, have come in for a regular caning with multiple releases over recent years, not forgetting the coloured / splatter vinyl reissues, vinyl hoard, solid book of rock, decade 4 disc set, Thunderbolt singles set etc.. The current release comes in at over £155 when you factor in postage. Now we all know nothing comes for free, no one is forced to buy it etc and this may be limited and great quality, but disregarding the box set ‘candy’ it comes in at over £30 per disc, not even coloured vinyl, which isn’t great value for money. Bearing in mind you could pick up the mammoth Nazareth box set for about £105 on its release last year, then this five disc offering, tempting as it may be, suggests a fleecing for fans...
