Cheers, Ali.
Yes, just buy it. It's probably the most worthwhile thing they've put out since These Days

It's interesting for collectors but in my opinion the mayority of the songs are just avarage.

I actually bought the box set before any other Bon Jovi cd, and it's the reason I'm a Bon Jovi fan now, so I'd say buy it

I don't have it as well - how much would you say is it worth? For sheer listening pleasure that is - I can very well live without "interesting introspections in the band's archives" or whatever, I want good songs.

IMO there are some awesome songs on there. Sure there are a few I could have done without, but there are alot you hear and just think "I can't believe it didn't make the album". There are some real gems, I'd say definitely get it.

I'd say you are missing out on a lot of hidden gems if you don't get it. Out of the 50 songs, 12 which are known, I'm sure you'll find some stuff you really like.

That is very cool knowing someone became a fan because of the box set. I did not realize that's how you became a fan.

Yeah. Before I bought the box set (which was kind of a stupid gamble, buying something that expensive without much familiarity with the catalogue) I just had this one cd with whatever I could find on LimeWire on it.

I think that cd was Just Older, One Wild Night, The Distance, In and Out of Love, Livin' on a Prayer, Bad Medicine, Jon singing "Respect", and It's My Life

I figured the box set was a good way to get a lot of their music to get familiar with at once. And it was. It was also a good way to turn me into a ridiculous David Bryan fan(although for a long time even after I got it I called him "that other guy with the bad hair, B-something).

I definitely recommend it for the people who don't have it yet.

With about 12-15 superb songs and some good ones and a handful crap awful ones it is definitely a good buy.
Songs like Radio saved my life tonight, Why aren't you dead, Garageland, Open all night, All I wanna do is you, If I can't have your love, I get a rush, Last man standing, Symphathy, Satelitte, Too much of a good thing, Love ain't nothing but a 4 letter word (demo version, not the brass-band version), River runs dry, Nobody's hero can easily replace songs they put on albums over the years and would have given the band more "masterpieces" than they have now.

So just for these tracks, I'm a happy Boxsetcamper....
