      this is about the ultimate early def leppard collection as after pyromania in 1983 i could not listen to def leppard anymore as they became a pop rock band, what is featured here is from 1979 through 1981 when def leppard where a NWOBHM band and had a whole other sound!! my favorite album by theres for 39 years now has been HIGH AND DRY from 1981 as i felt that was there peak album, i love the first album on through the night from 1980 but high and dry was when they really nailed it as i bought that lp brand new in 1981, anyway you get those two here again remastered but on the other discs you get a whole lot of other recordings live from there real rough early days in 1979 and 1980 and you also get different studio versions and rougher sounding versions of tracks here that where later released more polished up and some that went under the radar and def leppard dropped from there live set as early as 1980, i for one always loved the track RIDING INTO THE SUN from there very first ep they released themselves way back in the day, if you where a fan of this PETE WILLIS era of def leppard you will love this box set, this japan edition also comes with the great SHM remastered sound on all 4 discs and comes with a lot of great replicas and other nice stuff in this box set!!! it is well worth it if you are a fan of this era, dont get me wrong pyromania in 1983 was great but once mutt lange gets involved as a producer the music becomes meant for US RADIO/MTV AIRPLAY back in those days about 40 years ago already...ANYWAY i feel this japan box set edition is superior to the world wide release of this box set..
