A good overall effort for the German Platinum Label on this 1985 release.  Full song titles, authors, and track times are listed on the box. 
A quasi-legitimate piece that boasts good vinyl and full printed labels. This set became slightly confusing, as  it was released with at least three different box covers. Each LP was also released as two or more singles under various titles, by at least two different Labels. 
The first two albums in the set are actually the "second & third Gaslight" recordings from late 1962. LP 1 was also issued as a single LP entitled "A Hard Rain..."
LP 2 was also released as 'Cocaine'.
The third album in this set (side 5 and 6) has  the 
label " He was a friend of mine" and was released as 
a single album bearing that name. It is actually the "first Gaslight" recording from 9/6/61
