Some of the CD versions in the new Box Set are just the same remaster discs (with the bonus tracks) that came out previously, and some are new remasters available for the first time.
All of the BOC albums from 1979 to 1988 are the new 2012 remasters in the set, so it's definitely worth the cost of purchase if you're a fan of the band. And then you also get the Rarities CD and the Radio Broadcasts CD, plus the live DVD. I don't think there's been any official word if the new remasters or the bonus discs will be released seperately, yet at least.
