I heard good things about the Magnolia Electric Co. boxed set. Any thoughts?

It's quite good, but perhaps Eliot could leave a much more informative description. Eliot?

The Magnolia Electric Co. box is really nice set, as it shows you all the sides of Jason Molina. From the Shohola disc's gloomy solo acoustic folk to the cheerful, twangy Sun Sessions and back into the full band sets of Black Ram and Nashville Moon.

All that comes packaged with a great DVD about the band's time on the road. That's a fitting DVD because that's what the entire box seems to center on--life on the road. And that's the perfect subject for Molina's brand of straight-ahead, well-crafted folk rock.

It's five discs of one of the best modern indie bands...and you get a medallion!
