"While i've seen most of the shows on this package there were a couple of really nice surprises.I had never seen the Las Vegas show,so that was a huge bonus,plus the extra material in New Jersey at Rascals were awesome as well.The Tribute section was basically his best routines from his best shows put all together with some added commentary from his brother Bill and Rodney Dangerfield at the beginning.Still great stuff.If your not familiar with his work this would be a perfect introduction as it is almost a complete compilation of his work.And at the prices i'm finding for online it's a downright steal.Over 6 hrs. of Sam!!! Hard to believe but true.Most fans of Sam would probably already have most of this material,but diehards will want it for the Rascals alone.Hard to believe he's been gone for so long....Sam,you are missed."
This is a LOT of Sam

WHAT'S MISSING: Although I'm a big fan, I'm not a completist, so to be honest, I'm not sure. Most notably, I think his HBO special "Banned" is missing, and I'm not sure whether this set has all the extras from the other dvds or not. I'll leave that to the other hardcore fans to fill in.
I do know that at $7.87 plus shipping, it's far and away the best Kinison value currently on Amazon."
