I ordered a "like new" copy of the little orange 2005 Bangladesh reissue CD box.  The discs were horribly scuffed, probably due to the fact that the cardboard sleeves were too small to house the discs…which may be why the previous owner sold it back.

Is this a known problem with the set?  I don't want to keep buying more copies just to have the same problem.

Surely someone owns this.

I have the music but not the box so can't help – and no i didn't download it from anywhere.

I have it, bought new at the time, and my discs look fine – having just checked them for you. But, and it's a very big but, the actual discs have probably been removed no more than half-a-dozen times – maybe even only once. I get something, it goes on my hard drive, and gets listened to from there 99.99%. I couldn't even tell you the year I last looked at the box before hunting it out to take a look at the discs today!

Thanks…at least I know now that there is no way my box was actually anything close to "like new"!

Mine is pristine as well – but I bought it new locally.

As an aside, why oh why couldn't they include the full booklet from the old LP edition instead of a rehash of the booklet in the accompanying DVD release?  This was one of my favourite LP boxes back in the day – ah well, at least we get a nice bonus Dylan track and the Tambourine Man performance which is not on the DVD.
