Have a super-deluxe box set Christmas!

T'is is the season of the super-deluxe box set.

Back in the day, the typical box set was a way to sum up an artist's career. It would typically include the best of an artist's repertoire, plus some B-sides, rarities and demo versions of songs as well. That's just a mere morsel of the banquet that artists are offering now. The newest box sets focus on one album and expand it out to seemingly the edge of the universe.

If you've got a musical completionist on your list, and a whole lot of disposable cash, have I got some gift-giving suggestions for you!

(Prices are manufacturers' selected retail prices).

1)Nirvana--Nevermind: Super Deluxe Edition. This one gives you four CD's and 1 DVD. One cool Madison connection: it includes Butch Vig's original mix  (as opposed to the one that ended up on the 1991 album). $170

2)George Michael--Faith: The Limited Edition Box. For some people, Wham! just wasn't enough. You get 2 CD's, 1 DVD, and 1LP glorifying Michael's first solo album released in 1987. $175

3)Jethro Tull--Aqualung: The Collectors Edition. If you've been longing to hear "Locomotive Breath" in quad, 5.1 surround, and stereo (and more) this set is for you. You get 2 CD's, one Blu-ray, 1 DVD and 1 LP. "Sing it with me: in the shuffling madness...locomotive breath.." Hey this one's a bargain..just $160!

4)U2--Achtung Baby: Über Deluxe Edition. Achtung Baby is my favorite U2 album, but I don't think I'm quite read for Über. You get 6 CD's, 4 DVD's, 2 LPs, five 7" singles, and (drumroll please)....a replica of Bono's "Fly" sunglasses! $435.

5)Grateful Dead---Europe '72: The Complete Recordings. Couldn't travel across Europe with the Dead 39 years ago? This is almost as good. You get 72 discs, comprising all 22 shows. That's more than 70 hours of music. So if you started listening at 6:20 on a Friday night, you'd be done listening Monday afternoon at 4:20.  The cost? $450. And it doesn't even come with patchouli or a grilled cheese sandwich.
