I couldn't afford to get all of the 40th Anniversary ones; I think they're all the 2004 Remasters. And I'm hoping the Nektar albums are the original and not the remixes.

The Nektar reissues are the original European mixes. Lots of good bonus material, especially the "Boston tapes" which was their first recording session though not issued at the time.

The Crimson discs you got are good, nothing wrong with that batch. I haven't upgraded all of mine to the 40th editions either.

The 40th Anniversary editions of "Islands" and "Lizard" are my favorites in that series, Steven Wilson really improved both albums with his remix. There are some nice bonus tracks as well.

Beethoven's Last Night (2 LP set)
Night Castle (4 LP set!)

That's a great collection. The "Asbury Park" concert is one of their most famous. Those tapes were used (along with studio overdubs) for the album "USA". However, a better master of the concert showed up years later and they were able to release it as originally performed. "Live At Mainz" is another killer show.

The live recordings I recommended don't contain any of that material, so you don't need to worry about duplicates.

No, they didn't have it. I just got the regular one, but they knocked 5 extra bucks off the price because I had to wait an extra few weeks anyway.

I got lucky and found the Deluxe version on Amazon for 10 bucks right before Christmas, so I snatched it up.
