Guided By Voices: Hardcore UFOs - Revelations, Epiphanies and Fast Food in the Western Hemisphere (2003)

Boxsets are the collector's dream. Guided By Voices boxsets are not so rare. With two editions of Suitcase, a collection of early out-of-print albums, and Hardcore UFOs, GBV has four boxsets collecting about a hundred songs each. Where the two Suitcase boxsets showcase only unreleased tracks, the Box boxset having four out-of-print albums and one album of unreleased material...Hardcore UFOs has six distinct discs; 1) a greatest hits package, 2) a documentary DVD, 3) A live album, 4) an out-of-print singles/EP collection, 5) an unreleased collection, and 6) an out-of-print EP...

I have not wrote an entry for Watch Me Jumpstart, the documentary DVD (with music videos), since I'm trying to concentrate on the albums (for now). However, please click on the links below for the individual entries for each disc:

They are rare, as a matter of fact. My friend tried to find them, but failed. I don't know when it can be available. I'd like to be informed in such a case, but at the web site there is nothing about it. Where to find them?
