In 1970, Yes released their second album, the somewhat less successful “A Time And A Word”, backed by a full orchestra. During this period the band also made a number of live appearances for BBC radio where, given the freedom of a less formal setting, the performances have a more spontaneous, less structured sound than on many of their studio recordings from the same period. Although most Yes fans would cite the early seventies as the band’s most classic period, these early recordings give listeners a glimpse of what led up to that classic sound that so defined the progressive era and is the only live release to feature the original Yes line-up. Also featuring liner notes by guitarist Peter Banks who over saw the original 1998 release of these recordings. Includes an amazing version of “Every Little Thing” plus dramatic cover versions of the Beatles and Stephen Stills, and the rare Yes original – and previously unreleased – “For Everyone”.

When the band formed in 1966, Eric Clapton was already fairly well known, having performed and recorded with the Yardbirds and John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, but it wasn’t until Cream that Clapton
became a global superstar. Breaking free of the traditional rock & roll song structure for a more improvisational / jazz influenced take, the band’s long jams gave birth to a whole new approach to rock music. When their debut album, Fresh Cream, was released in 1966 it immediately became the standard by which all other bands of the era were judged. They went on to release three more groundbreaking albums before their disbanding in 1969. Don’t miss your chance to get these amazing collectors editions of three of the four official Cream studio albums in one vinyl box set.
The set includes Fresh Cream on clear red vinyl, Wheels of Fire (studio) on white vinyl and Wheels of Fire (Live) on white vinyl and Goodbye on picture disc.

The albums that brought in a new era called Tropicalia, a 1960s musical and political movement that sought to bring bossa nova into the future with the help of acid-fuelled psychedelia and political protest lyrics…all this through the hearts and guitars of a few left-wing student protesters / musicians based in Rio De Janeiro – including a young musician named Caetano. His musical protests soon got the attention of Brazil’s military dictator, causing him to be thrown into jail and eventually forcing him to leave the country for a brief period, but by that time the Tropicalia movement had already exploded and the groundwork for much of contemporary Brazilian music had already been laid. The four albums collected here: Tropicalia, Irene, A Little More Blue and Araçá Azul straddle this tumultuous time in Caetano’s life, with A Little More Blue being recorded while he was in exile in England. Caetano fortunately soon returned home in triumph, going on to become one of the most significant singer / songwriters of the 20th century.

One of those rare amazing bands that never became the superstars they were meant to be only because they were not from the US or the UK. In fact, they were from that other musical powerhouse, Brazil, which had not yet been fully recognized as such. In line with the avant-garde movement Tropicalia, from 1968 to 1972 Os Mutantes recorded five brilliant albums drawing from traditional Brazilian music, psychedelia, 60s rock, and fusing it together into the top-secret hydrogen bomb of a new breed of rock & roll that went on to far surpass the bands they were trying so hard to match. And then they disappeared without a trace (until their reunion in 2006)…except for their name appearing every now and again as a major influence on this or that famous rock star (Kurt Cobain begged them to do a reunion tour in 1993). This box collects their first three (and best) albums: Os Mutantes, Mutantes and A Divina Comedia ou Ando Meio Desligado, which have gone down in history as some of the best Brazilian music of all time.
