Ten - Opera Omnia 16-CD Box Set

Recommended Posts

This had been on my radar earlier in the year but fell off, until I saw Jez's post about having bought it. So I went about finding more information and purchasing it. I'm not sure what is REALLY going on with respect to scarcity or availability, but there's something wonky going on, given how recently it was released.

It was released on April 26, 2019 on Frontiers Records. It claims to be a limited edition, but can find no numbers as to how many were produced.

While the digital version is still readily available, the physical 16-CD box has disappeared from most retailer websites:

Frontiers site: https://www.frontiers.shop/new-releases/849/ten-opera-omnia-the-complete-works-16-cd-boxset Product page has been removed.

Target: https://www.target.com/p/ten-opera-omnia-complete-works-cd/-/A-76384435 Sold out.

Music Buy Mail: https://musicbuymail.com/de/shop/cd/ten-opera-omnia-the-complete-works-16cd-boxset No longer available.

ImportCDS: https://www.importcds.com/ten-opera-omnia-complete-works/8024391088463 Back order.

Deep Discount: https://www.deepdiscount.com/ten-opera-omnia-complete-works/8024391088463 Back order.

AOR Heaven: Not listed.

NEH Records: Not listed.

Music Import Warehouse (formerly CDInzane) https://www.importmusicwarehouse.com/ten-opera-omnia-the-complete-works-14-cd-vinyl-replica-boxset-2019.html Priced at $220. Yeah, that's inzane alright.

The only active eBay listings are at $129

So availability may actually be limited on this thing.

I bought one yesterday at U.S. Amazon for $63 after sales tax, which works out to roughly $4 per disc. Not bad. It arrived today, and the presentation and packaging are actually better than I expected. Double box, each CD is not only in its own cardboard sleeve, but there is an inner paper sleeve for each disc with liner notes. In addition, there is a full color 28-page booklet.

Pictures below, first a stock image, and then some quick and dirty cellphone pics I took of my set. Track listings below that.

In terms of bang for the buck, I think it's top notch. While I suppose there may be more being pressed or "coming from the factory", the fact that Frontiers has removed it from their website implies otherwise. If you have interest, I would get it while you can:

There were 19 in stock when I purchased mine yesterday, down to 12 now.

Thanks for the thorough insight Dan and at least the track list shows a few bonus tracks as well for those that may have some or all of the releases.

Really nice set..Lots of Bonus tracks I didn't have from the Jap versions and all in one place. No remastering, but most of these sound great anyways, so nothing lost there. Get one while you can
