(4-LP set) The Masterpiece Collection is a four LP Limited Edition Collectors Box Set featuring "Los Angeles", "Wild Gift", "Under the Big Black Sun" and "More Fun in the New World". All four LP's have been painstakingly re-mastered from the original recordings and pressed on 180 gram vinyl. Each includes all original artwork. The box itself will feature a huge embossed gold foil "X" logo as well as a black on black varnish of Exene's famous iconography.
