Message:  So GREAT to see you here, Bob R. When I first discovered the old songs.com in 1999 and learned of the Box Set, I remember going to Lana(and we usually discuss things) and saying:"We are spending $120.00 TODAY!"

It was like Christmas when they arrived. What was particularly satisfying were the upbeat cuts which used to distort on the LP's. "Why You Been Gong So Long, "Mobile Blue", and "Dizzy Lizzy" took on new life. But they were all wonderful.

The best job, in my opinion, was on "Looks Like Rain", especially the second time. The Mercury vinyl was not all that good but to echo everyone else, headphones are really great.

I can tell you Mickey was thrilled. When "Rusty Tracks" was redone, Mickey said: "I ain't NEVER heard the chorus on "In The Pines" like that before". He was really happy.

And we all are so lucky and my thanks as well for Bob and Michael.
