Splitting 7 albums over four discs is a bit odd, but you still get all the albums in remastered form with bonus tracks for 13. You couldn't get close to that price if you got 'em individually, so if you're willing to tolerate the layout then you get a good deal. I'm getting this very soon, 13 for seven albums remastered with bonus tracks is a steal. I'll have a double of EHL I but no biggie.

Just ordered The Carrere Years today, can't wait to finally have some physical copies of the early albums.

EDIT: Just arrived this morning (Day after I made the first post), great little collection. Also wrote a review on Amazon, take a look if you like. http://www.amazon.co.uk/product-revi...owViewpoints=1

Bonus Tracks:

If that's how it's arranged on the discs then EMI did a better job than they did with the first boxset did, albeit that there are less albums on this one. And I believe that these albums (With the exception of IINE) haven't been reissued with this many bonus tracks as well as being remastered.

Yes they have mate. All the bonus tracks appeared on the 2010 remasters. It's still a great boxset at a good price. I've just ordered my Carrere Years and look forward to getting this one as well

Received my Carrere Years set today. I'm currently on disc 3 and they do sound pretty good. Would certainly agree with your review on Amazon, although as a mad person who is a total (try to be at least) completist when it comes to Saxon it doesn't bother me too much.

Also interesting to read the booklet. Biff's comments are all reproduced from the 2009 remasters series, but some new comment from Oliver and Dawson.

I'm not sure if 'The Carrere Years' or 'The EMI Years' are going to be released on vinyl but Back On Black Records released 'Wheels of Steel' through to 'Rock The Nations' on double and single coloured vinyls earlier this year and they have the same bonus tracks (not the Hammersmith gig though) They are very good.
