Misfits Box Set

 I love the Misfits.  In particular, I love the Misfits when they were fronted by Glenn Danzig.  Over the years, I have had in my possession a number of Misfit albums, most of which were various compilations or live recordings, often with over-lapping tracks.  When the Misfits Collections (two seperate CDs with a huge list of tracks on each) came out, I no longer needed many of the albums I had in my collection, with the exception of maybe "Evilive".  The Collections included for the most part everything the Misfits had put out.

 Then came this box-set. 

 There is simply not a more comprehensive collection of Misfits tracks ever released to the public.  It has 104 remastered tracks including; COLLECTIONS I AND II, LEGACY OF BRUTALITY, EARTH A.D., EVILLIVE, and even the legendary long lost STATIC AGE album.  Rarities, unreleased material, and probably every noise the Misfits ever committed to tape are included in this set.  In addition to practicly everything by the Misfits, Eerie Von of SAMHAIN provides a 28 page booklet of liner-notes and lyrics, unreleased photos, artwork, the complete discography, and fiends are treated to a fired-enamel "Fiends Club" badge.

 All of this comes in a coffin-shaped black box with a faux-velour lined interior.  Awesome!

 My personal collection, pictured above, is a bit more exstensive; a collection of Misfit patches, a  "Fiends Club" button, and of course the iconic t-shirt.  The box-set alone is a real treat for any Misfits fan, providing hours of tracks to sate any need for a Misfits fix.  The Misfits defined "horror-punk", setting the bar high for all other bands to follow to try to match.  If you want to know where it all started, then get this set.
