Here's the description of The Archives on the Amazon.co.uk page:

4 - CD BOXED SET FEATURING THE FINEST LIVE RECORDINGS AVAILABLE BY THIS ENDURING GROUP Formed in 1970 by Dewey Bunnell, Dan Peek and Gerry Beckley, America were all sons of US Air Force personnel stationed in London, where they met, formed a group and began performing live. Gaining popularity quickly, they soon signed with Warner Bros., and hit big in 72 with their A Horse With No Name , which topped the chart in the USA and a number of other territories. The rest, as they say, is history, but it s an ongoing history as two of the original trio - Messrs. Bunnell and Beckley - remain active and tour regularly to this day. Dan Peek left the group in the late 1970s, and sadly passed away in 2011. This unique 4-CD Boxed Set gathers together some of the finest ever live performances from America, recorded between 1972 and 1996, all of which were the subject of FM radio Broadcasts at the time. Featuring shows played at Sigma Sound Studios, PA, in 1972, The Universal Amphitheatre, Universal City, CA, in 1978, and Baden-Baden, in Germany in 1996, this enticing collection represents all eras of this enduring act and illustrates perfectly what a truly professional and musically talented group America have always been.

All of these performances have been released before. The first CD was released a few years ago as America Sigma Sound Studios 1972, the 2nd and 3rd CD are the same as the Universal Amphitheatre L.A. 1978 CD released two years ago, and the last CD was released a long time ago as Live In Germany '99 (the performance is from 1999 not 1996 as the ad says.)

This looks like a nice collection if you do not already own the prior releases. It does have some rarities like Living Isn't Really Giving, How Long Must This Go On, Norman, and songs from the Human Nature album (From A Moving Train, Pages, and Wheels Are Turning).

Seems like these types of releases originate in Europe before finding their way to the US. I wonder if the copyright laws are looser in Europe?
