This is old content, true, and some of the songs are not great quality, but 95% are good. The set is made up of demos, live recordings and hard to find stuff - having searched before I've only ever found one out of the 110. There are unreleased singles as well as demos, and three demos of fairytale of new york at various stages of its development.However, the pinnacle of the box set has to be on the first disc in the shape of NW3. This is a fantastic and heartfelt song that far exceeds its version by Shane MacGowan & the Popes (released as Mother Mo Chroi). There are brilliant others as well such as covers of traditional Irish songs such as Hot Asphalt and The Rocky Road to Dublin, and also some more punky songs such as Glued Up And Speeding and Hot Dogs With Everything.The bos itself is beautifully designed and includes a built-in booklet containing info on the songs by Pogues guitarist Phil Chevron (who lead the compilation of the box set) and a multitude of photos and notes by other members of the band (though, dissapointingly, not Shane MacGowan).All in all this is essential for any Pogues fan, although those who are looking to test the band out for the first time will probably want to try the albums If I Should Fall From Grace With God and Rum Sodomy And The Lash first.
