*** 2017's ''A New Career in a New Town (19771982)'' contains ''Music/{{Low}}'', ''[[Music/HeroesDavidBowieAlbum "Heroes"]]'', an EP containing every version of the ""Heroes"" single, ''Stage'' and its 2017 remix, ''Music/{{Lodger}}'' and its 2017 Tony Visconti remix, ''Music/ScaryMonstersAndSuperCreeps'', and the singles compilation ''Re:Call 3''. This box set is rather infamous among Bowie fans for a volume drop present partway through the TitleTrack of ""Heroes"", which Parlophone eventually fessed up to via a now-defunct offer in which buyers could send in their proof of purchase in exchange for replacement discs of ''"Heroes"'' with the volume issue resolved. The fixed master is also present on the standalone CD and LP releases of ''"Heroes"'', allowing buyers to still have a way of replacing the botched copy of the album.[[note]]Although it's not as perfect of a solution as the replacement disc offer was, seeing as how A: buying the standalone release means having to spend extra money compared to the free replacement offer, and B: the standalone CD uses a normal, silver-colored aluminum foil layer instead of the gold foil layer used for the Parlophone box set [=CDs=].[[/note]]

** Another Joy Division backlog boxset was released seven years earlier, featuring ''Music/UnknownPleasures'', ''Music/{{Closer}}'', ''Still'', ''Substance'', and a CD single version of "Atmosphere" and the 12" version of "She's Lost Control", all uncompressed and sourced from the original master tapes (most other releases are either [[LoudnessWar noticeably compressed]] or sourced from second-generation tapes). [[NoExportForYou Too bad it was only sold in Japan.]]


* 1997's ''Heart and Soul'' serves as a compilation of nearly everything that Music/JoyDivision recorded during their four-year lifespan.

* 1997's Three official box sets by Music/JoyDivision are known to exist:
** The first is ''1977-1980'', a [[NoExportForYou Japan-exclusive]] set released in 1990 compiling the band's two studio albums, the ''Still'' and ''Substance'' compilations, and a CD version of the "Atmosphere"/"She's Lost Control" single, all uncompressed and sourced from the original master tapes. Because all other CD releases of Joy Division's material is sourced from second-generation copies and/or [[LoudnessWar noticeably brickwalled]], this set is considered the a holy grail among Joy Division fans.
** The second box set is
''Heart and Soul'' serves as Soul'', a 1997 (issued stateside by Rhino in 2001) compilation of nearly everything every single Joy Division recording that Music/JoyDivision recorded during their four-year lifespan.London Records could find in the vaults at the time, properly remastered and presented as a sort of retrospective of the band. It is rather notable for being one of only two official source for the band's final recording, a May 14, 1980 studio rehearsal of "Ceremony" (the other official source, for those wondering, is a vinyl release of the Music/NewOrder and Joy Division versions of both "Ceremony" and "In a Lonely Place", issued exclusively for Record Store Day 2011).
** The third box set is the ''Fractured Box'' from 2001, which compiles the ''Preston 28 February 1980'' and ''Les Bains Douches 18 December 1979'' live albums in a single package; this set got a re-release in 2004 as the ''Re-fractured Box'', with some extra tidbits added in.


** Batman's films have a few, notably ''The Batman Legacy'',''The Batman Motion Picture Anthology'' '''or''' ''4 Film Favorites: Batman'' for ''Film/{{Batman}}'', ''Film/BatmanReturns'', ''Film/BatmanForever'', and ''Film/BatmanAndRobin'', and ''The Dark Knight Trilogy'' for ''Film/TheDarkKnightSaga''. Non-Batman films ''Film/{{Memento}}'', ''Film/ThePrestige'' and ''Film/{{Inception}}'' joined the ''Saga'' for the ''Creator/ChristopherNolan Director's Collection''.
