You got this far without hearing about any of it before? That's pretty good.
I do believe the box set was intended to be released. If it wasn't then he may as well have promised the CD set I would have actually wanted to buy, rather than the cassette tapes.
Maybe he was able to copy the tapes himself but couldn't do CD's, which at the time was more difficult.
Lucky for me as I did not part with any cash for tapes.
