Yesterday all hands were on deck for what seemed like an endless amount of mail order. If you’re reading this and you pre-ordered Complete Mythology, rest assured it is out for delivery. Our wonderful mail lady Cheryl wasn’t too pleased about the prospect of unloading 300 boxes on the other side, but we put a little of that rain, sleet, or snow guilt into her.

The box itself? Fucking gorgeous are two words that come to mind. Certainly our finest work to date, and we guarantee you won’t be disappointed. Official release date is 11/7 at retail, but you can’t get the bonus 7″ or enjoy it early if you wait.

Got mine today up here in Canada! Thanks for the surprise inclusion of Born Again Funk (side a/b only, no cover sleeve)…. Anyone else get something like this?? There was a 1 inch dent along the spine due to shipping/handling… but what the hell! Beautiful Box. Gonna be hard to top this one.

I got mine today also. I also got the Born Again Funk A/B side. Great record. I have to go out and pick that up.
This is hands down the best boxset I’ve ever seen. The Wilson Pickett boxset from earlier in the year was also great, but this one tops it. You guys have outdone yourselves!!!

Mine just arrived about half an hour ago. Less than a week to get to England is impressive enough, but then there’s the package itself, which is just wonderful in every regard. Thanks for caring enough to do this fantastic music such deserved justice. (And, yes, got the BAF freebie too, along with the 7″ and print number 298 – or is it 295? Clear evidence of overworking the interns there. But it does seem to have been in an exceptionally good cause. Many, many thanks.

Just got the boxset this morning. Just under a week to get to Ireland. This is one of the best boxsets I have ever purchased. Just pure quality from start to finish. Even the numero group catalog is a great nod of the hat to the old catlogs from days gone by. This is the future for how music should be packaged and sold to punters. Well done, just a great great job all round.
