The Same Band Boxed Set was assembled to provide Same Band members as complete a collection as possible of the band's various live performances, studio tapes, rehearsal cassettes and other recordings. The collection runs over twelve hours and forty minutes and spans 12 discs. It also includes a DVD with the "Boogie With The Same Band" movie, an 1.8 gigabyte archive of images and video, a 52-page photo album, ten custom guitar picks, and a mitre-joined wooden box with laser-engraved logotype on the lid. Shrinkwrapped and numbered. Only three of the sets will ever be sold, in order to recoup the substantial costs involved in assembling and giving out this lavish package to the band's members and closest friends.

The laser-engraved box includes:

  • The Same Band LP (1985) on CD (with 4 bonus cuts)
  • Unreleased Studio Tracks 1977-1980
    (with the 1978

The audio CD's were transcribed using Otari 5050BII and Marantz PMD500 playback decks with dbx 180 and Dolby B noise reduction where appropriate. Transcription through Neve 1084 equalizers and API Model 2500 Program Compressor to a Cranesong HEDD 192 24-bit Analog-Digital convertor. Monitored through Benchmark DA1 digital convertor and Meyer Sound HD-1 monitoring system. Edited and mastered using the SADiE IV Artemis system and burned in realtime to Plextor 8/20 drive. Duplicated 8X on a custom-configured tower using all-Plextor drives. Discs are 1200DPI inkjet printed and jewel-box inserts are 1200DPI color laser printed. The booklet was laser printed at incredible resolution by an outside vendor: it is indistinguishable in quality from an offset-printed art catalog.
