This Monday I submit for your approval the box art for GOBLIN LIVE AT SHOCK STOCK. I picked it up at Cinema Wasteland in Cleveland.  

This blu-ray is concert footage from a show Goblin played at Shock Stock in 2011.  It looks and sounds really good for a low budget release.  Unfortunately, all the yelling and whistling from the crowd can also be heard the whole time.  But, I wouldn't let that dissuade you, if you have the chance to pick this up.  The songs get longer versions than any of the recordings you could pick up, with the improvisations on Profondo Rosso (Deep Red) being a standout.

The art itself is just a montage of projects that Gobln did soundtracks for and a funny little curved border.  Put out by Vagrancy Video, they did a pretty nice job with the release.  The fact that they did a limited Special Edition is great.  That little gold sticker with the hand printed number is a nice touch.  However, as you can see, the number is smudged out.  Likewise, the blu-ray inside is just a burned disc and didn't work in my nice blu-ray player.  It did work in my other one, though...
