Yes. I have. It's due to ship in mid December. My wife is giving it to me for Christmas so I won't be able to review for a few weeks!

I did look into it, but at 300 Euros once you factor in exchange rate and customs (not sure if I would need to add also shipping costs), it is priced above my limit. And that is for the ‘basic’ version, never mind the ultra-limited one.

The oldest photos are from 1980. The most interesting years were over then imho.

Gone through mine with a German 82 tour show blaring in the background. Leaving price aside, it's a fantastic product, no regrets investing in! Many fascinating and rare shots, Edinburgh 1987 and Leeds 1981 for instance. Perhaps 30% of the content may have been seen elsewhere over the years, but great to have in one place. You get more of a sense of the man than many of the biographies, the testimonies really add to this.

Only gripe could be the lack of captions, especially for the rarer material.

Fully agree. The absence of captions is annoying. I recognise some of the people in the back stage shots but not all. The other minor irritant is that some images from the same shoot and spread across the book.

there's a fantastic 2 page shot in the middle of the book, mixing the RB, the eyes, strat, band, spotlights all in one futuristic collage!
