      They’re basically repackages into digipaks without further upgrades — no remixing/remastering or new liner notes involved. The only new thing is the limited edition numbers on the back covers. (Mine are 3448 for Size Matters & 3754 for Holidays in Eden Live.) 5 of the 10 are currently out of print on CD; if Marillion got earMusic to spring for manufacturing costs, it’s an easy way of getting them back into circulation. But not essential for previous hard core collectors by any means. I had none of ’em (although I have the BluRays for Holidays and Brave Live), so they’re worth it for me.
