There are six 'Inklings Archives' in total. The TS releases (of which there are only two; covering only Tolkien) are essentially the same except they are stand alone releases (there is no suggestion of there being six); also simply called 'Church House Archives' (see TSTrading catalogue).
Facets of Tolkien (Inklings Archive #2; same title) is identical in both formats. Tolkien & the Inklings by TS incorporates Carpenter & Shippey from two seperate 'Inklings Archives' (#3 & #4); it also includes a recording of Barbara Strachey (Author of Journeys of Frodo...) not included in any of the six 'Inklings Archives'.
'Inklings Archives' #1, #5 & #6 contain no specific Tolkien related material (#2 is exclusively Tolkien; #3 & #4 contain some Tolkien material as mentioned above).
Additionally, the 'Inklings Archives' are limited in number (TS releases are not). Contact Nigel Sustins for more details; & for another very interesting item...
