A Selection of EMI Box Sets

It seems we are living in a golden age of box sets. Not just EMI, but a number of labels are releasing box sets,
either as an artist portrait or as a composer compendium.
Obviously older recordings will sound typically "historical" or sonically compromised, but there are quite a number of
recordings from the 1950's onward that have been remastered and have surprisingly good sound quality.
Below is a sampling of EMI box sets that have been issued:
