My first introduction to the war of the worlds was slightly different. My mum and dad have always been moody blues fans and i can remember my dad listening to an ablum which had forever autumn on it and I loved. When I was eventually introduced to the war of the world I became addicted almost instantly and have been for the last decade.

We used to wag school, every other Wednesday in 1978/79, and spend the day with an older mate who worked in the local Co-op (had every other Wednesday off).

He used to play it constantly

A few years later I saved up my paper round money and bought a copy of the Double LP with the booklet included, and I even paid an extra 25 pence for a clear cover to protect it

Oh, as a fan I have to say that the CE (Collector's Edition) is ESSENTIAL for real fans of the album.

It has outtakes from the spoken parts (Richard Burton, etc), loads of different versions of songs from the album (and one song that was cut from the album!!), a full CD of remixes from down the years... from the 70's to the present day, and all sorts of other great rarities from Jeff's archives. It has beautiful artwork and is really well put together. It's a real fan's treasury. Hours of pleasure. Really.

Just hearing Richard Burton and Phil Lynott doing various takes from their parts is almost worth it alone.It has a rare insight... and sense of humour... that you don't find often in albums of this type. It's a real celebration of a work that has endured. And endured. Can't say fairer than that, IMO. 

It's presented in a beautiful 12'' (the old vinyl LP sized... like the last Tour program, actually) 'book' with lots of glossy imagery and stuff.

The price you can pick it up for now, it's a bargain (I paid WAY more for mine a couple of years back... and that was on a good discount!).

If you can afford it and you are a real diehard fan of JWMVoTWoTW, I'd say go for it!
