Yardbirds - Live & Rare 4CD + DVD box set

Postby GoogaMooga » 03 Dec 2018, 06:02

Just when you thought everything to do with the legendary Yardbirds had been unearthed and released on CD, along comes Repertoire and springs a whopping 4CD box set upon us. The German reissue label has always handled the Yardbirds catalog very well, with original cover art, copious notes, and heaps of bonus tracks. What we get on the new box set, the first such from Repertoire, are 21 previously unreleased ‘off-air’ BBC recordings, live performances from across Europe and rare studio cuts. A bonus DVD of restored live performances rounds out this must-have package. First big surprise for 2019.

I daresay, I think I'll pass. Repertoire's also planning a "complete" BBC set for next year - that, I might go for.

According to comments on the link it looks like it's mainly the video stuff that's previously unreleased, and I'm sure I have a bunch of it already on official and unofficial videos. Still, I'll probably get this to replace my worn-out vcr's.
Where would rock 'n' roll be without feedback?

What is the point of this nonsense? Who's buying?

May as well be 'A Collection Of Framed Poodle Portraits'. Utterly worthless, especially in this day and age.
