Could've been better if B-sides, unreleased songs were added

"Paul Simon is one of my favorite singers/song-writers. I took this box set to have the full collection and I'm currently exploring with the albums that I haven't heard before.
The collection would have been better if singles, B-sides, previously unreleased recordings have been added rather than demo and live recordings of songs of the Album.
In my opinion, the bonus tracks are not really that significant addition."
Paul Simon boxed set

"Even though I have all of these cd's, I really like this boxed set-the sound is great, and the extras are great. This man has written music that resonates with me-the 60's throught the 90's(and hoping for a DVD from the "Old Friends" tour). It is worth getting this set just for the sound-I am listening to this music, and it sounds better than ever- It sounds fresh to me."
For a Simon-lover

"First off, this is 120+ of Paul Simon's songs. And it isn't even the "complete" studio recordings. But it is stil a triumph for any Simon-lover. There are no new special-edition liner notes, but I still gave it 5 stars. The winner of 9-Grammy's gives us a 9-disk masterpiece with music from Kodachrome to Call Me Al, any fan would love this as a gift."
