The Final Option vs The Complete EC Tapes

Recommended Posts

Which is the best of these box sets? I see them pop up on eBay every so often but I'm not sure of the differences.

Just grab the Torrents to compare and keep your money in your pocket.

Well, yeah, but I was wondering which set had the best physical packaging. Just from a collecting standpoint.

I don't get that packaging thing, but if that's your bag.....

I know what he means. Just because you can get it for free doesn't mean you don't want the physical product. Some people like to collect boots for the packaging as well as the performance.  It comes down to this, which one has the better pics or more interesting package as a whole.

All I can say is look online for whatever pics you can find of both and go from there.

This is what bootlegs looked like when I was paying for them.

Waaaaaaaay back in 1984 !!! that's "like" last week. [and] fwwiw  I  use(d) the Zep Art site for my boot CD covers, I'd pick the ones I like(d) the most so for instance an EV might have a Wendy cover. I'm not very particular about matching my downloads to the correct art, this is of course if the download does not come with cover art but these days most do.

For JTM it was last week, I believe he has boots of Niccolo Paganini and Hildegard Von Bingen. Believe me, her performance at Eibingen was INSANE!!! :hysterical:

It's last week compared to 1973 when I bought my first bootleg. I was sort of taking the mickey out of your "Waaaaaaaaaay back" comment.

I personally prefer The Final Option's packaging but I'll always have a soft spot for EVSD's old Earl's Court boxset
