Was just about to pull the trigger on this but figured I'd ask the experts first, is t worth it? if not, have you any other suggestions, I was going to wait until the Alpine boots were released but my cc needs feeding now!!
Remember that we are in the depths of a recession. :D

    definitely worth it. bought it a few months ago--the shows are amazing (bugs? whip it?!), the packaging is great, and (spoilers?) fuckin' pearl jam trading cards!!!

  • Telling the wife how much is spent on PJ is a big mistake. My lips are sealed.

  • great shows...i ordered mine october 24th & got the trading cards. definitely worth it.

  • I got mine in the mail a couple days ago and it included the cards. I'm gonna go through it in order...I'm only on the first show, but so far it's great. The energy of the band and crowd is incredible and the variance of the song selection is quite impressive (I've compared track lists for all four shows).

  • Is it just the discs in the box now? There's no picture in the goods anymore just a red icon with a star. I've seen further back in the thread that the trading cards are still there but was there anything else in the box, I can't remember and it doesn't give details of it's contents. Thanks

    I've got the Gorge set, would've gone for the whole '09 box, but financial restrictions/recession, blah, blah, blah etc caused me to downgrade my wishlist!!!

    Cheers for the advice, I'll let you know what I think.

    Just got the Gorge set last week. Made my work week go SO much faster. My next 2 purchases are the Philly box set and the Alpine set (when it comes out)! Love this band!

    Oh - and US tour tickets (please).

    Merry Christmas!

    Aw, sorry, didn't mean to make light of the recession or anything, I know it's a tough time for lots of people. BUT I think the Gorge box set is FANTASTIC so you should be all set until you can get the Philly one. :mrgreen:

    The Gorge set I probably listen to once a week and helps me get through the work week.

    I recently purchased 3 boots earlier this week, but after reading all of this and wanting the Philly boots, this thread is making me want to really beat my credit card over the head. :mrgreen:

    Unfortunately, at the moment, it's my credit card that's beating me about the head. My wife and I agreed that this would be a very tight year so we could pay off our debts, I haven't told her I'm off to Manchester in June yet either :problem:

    Ahhhh fuck it, I just put in my order for the Philly box set thanks to all of the torment from this thread.....thanks a lot fuckers, now my credit card is bleeding even more from Christmas. :mrgreen:

    I should've never opened this thread, because I knew it was gonna make me buy something. :lol:

    I know the feeling, my 'fuck it' gene is pretty persuasive unfortunately, just ask my bank manager
  • frazbafrazba Posts: 601
    It could've been worse though, I was one click away from ordering the entire '09 box!!!
  • frazbafrazba Posts: 601
    AND, I'd have added a Kritical Krass shirt if they'd had any left in medium, I think I'm glad they didn't.

    :lol: I know that feeling....getting into the boots section and looking at the entire year's boot box set and staring it right in the face.....contemplating whether to make that click or not. Oh well, I'm very happy to be getting the Philly set, I've been wanting to get it for a while and this thread just threw me overboard. After all, it is Christmas and I might as well treat myself to a gift!
