New "Half Century" box set due in late Spring
Posted on: 03/03/2020 07:27 PM

Just an FYI for fans here. There's a company out of England that's releasing a "Half Century" box set in late Spring. Jeff Larson has been on board with this from the get-go, and is the primary archivist here. Link is www.gonzomultimedia.co.uk 7 CD's and one DVD which is exclusive to the box set. Click that link on and you should be able to see the track listings for all 8 discs. It'll be pricy, but the contents and packaging will be worth the purchase price...

Pricy indeed Dan, but wow...what a package of material! The 1976 disc with the outtakes from "Hideaway" looks to be a real keeper! And...the DVD is exclusive to the box set. I'll have to use my income tax refund to pick this one up....

I’m curious whether the DVD exclusive to this box set is the “documentary” that we’ve been told is coming, or whether the documentary will be a stand-alone comprehensive review of the band’s career.

Apparently this is being delayed because it is in violation of the international enjoyment quotient laws that limit the amount of joy and happiness allowed to be exported from the United Kingdom.

Truth be told, Kevin, it's actually part of the defunding of America!

Now delayed until 30 August.

After two delays I noticed they missed out the year 30 August is in so I'm assuming it's 2020 but I could be wrong.

My boxset arrived yesterday. It'a very substantial heavy parcel which is well packed. It's numbered 072 and the set has three layers. The first thing I noticed was a cd which looks the same as the one on the front of the Palladium program. I've not had a chance to play anything yet but that will come this weekend.

I've always liked Hourglass so I started listening to the Alternate 90's CD first. I like the snippet from the "Dell Ad" song and the alternate mix of Mirror To Mirror and Call Of The Wild.

It arrived. It arrived. This is an incredible treasure of music and history. It will take a while to really dig into.

I am listening to the demos now from the Chalk Farm days. These are really amazing. I'm five songs into the first of eight discs and I am stunned by how incredible this is.

What number did you get Kevin?

I was listening to Lovely Night on the Caribou Ranch Sessions disk.

I love the way Dan is clarifying what to do vocally at the beginning of the recording.

I got number 174.

It's really interesting listening to the remixes of the Hideaway songs. I like many of them better than the released versions. They are simpler and stripped down.

Got mine the other day. Really enjoying listening to the unreleased songs. I wonder why some of those songs never made it to an album. I like some of them better than some of the songs that were released.

I agree. There are some real gems in the unreleased songs. I am listening to them a lot.
