I can't quite interpret (from the Google Japanese to English) all of what is being written about here, but it seems like the 6cd box of their best albums was talked about, but then cancelled before release. Maybe that's why there are no rips floating around because no one had a good cd source.

No, it was actually released - I even remember (I believe) The Seth Man here writing about it, not being impressed, and sending it back.

The '77 version of Golden Bat that was available on various blogs, which had a few songs from Throw away the Books tacked on at the end, was actually from the boxset. Who knows why that was the only thing from it which circulated.

Maybe I misremembered, I thought based on everyone's description that there was a 2nd TKB box with later recordings. So if Seth was disappointed with it, and it includes the Original Golden Bat, then is this album really worth tracking down?
