Bon Scott , the charismatic and now legendary front man for AC/DC who died on the eve of superstardom and who left a incredible musical legacy, the man who gave us such memorable quotes as “people ask me if i’m AC or DC, neither I’m the lightning in the middle” is the subject, or catalyst, for this exciting new release. Without alot of hoopla along comes this box set that presents all of the soundboard live recordings that feature Bon Scott on vocals. Since the band was in their formative years and were a touring band they used radio as a means to get their music out to people to be heard, the majority of this set is culled from these radio broadcasts. They are not only among the best in quality but also performance.
"The greatest songs never grow old, they just get better as a select wine." In this collection are collected 3 generations of romantic music of the 50's, 60's and 70's.
Following on the heels of the success of the rock opera Tommy and the band’s grandstand appearance at the Woodstock Festival, when released in 1970, Live At Leeds unwittingly documented the Who at the peak of their powers, their shows now stretching up to two and a half hours without a break and containing Tommy as their centrepiece.
Except it should have been very different. The original intention was to release the recording from the Hull City Hall performance the following night after Leeds as the live album.
The baritone Tito Gobbi is considered one of the greatest singers of the 20th century. He was particularly celebrated for his live performances of 19th century Italian opera repertoire, and especially the music of Giuseppe Verdi. The recordings in this ten-CD collection were made between 1942 and 1960. The worldwide fame of Tito Gobbi (1913-1984) was founded on the seemingly endless diversity of his vocal style and acting ability, with which he turned the characters of his stage personas into dramatic experiences for his audience.
60 songs, 22 (!) previously unreleased-including duets with Dylan, the Dead, Kris Kristofferson, Donovan, Judy Collins and sister Mimi Farina, etc.-together with a 32-page full-color book packed with interviews and rare pix! From We Shall Overcome through The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down to Diamonds and Rust , her complete career. This is a big ol' box of Baez; certainly more than any casual fan would need. The hits are here ("Diamonds and Rust," "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down"), along with a treasure trove of rare duets (with Kris Kristofferson, Bob Gibson, Donovan, and others) and previously unreleased tracks (including a giddy 1965 concert duet with Bob Dylan on his "Mama, You Been on My Mind"). The depth and breadth of Baez's work–from her early traditional bent ("Silver Dagger") to her fine choices from contemporary writers (Merle Haggard, John Prine)–is well-represented. The striking beauty of her voice is, too.
This is the collection from one of the world's greatest rock bands. It's here, for the first time 17 CDs bursting at the seams, in this one box of rock. From 'High Voltage' through to 'Stiff Upper Lip' (2000) with all the classic moments. This is truly a must for any fan!
75 numbers from in the main the late 50's… Many featured tracks were hits sung by many well-known artists from that time like Billy Fury, Adam Faith, Marty Wilde, Alma Cogan and Cliff Richard… This box set is a great addition to any CD collection.If you wanted to add a rock n roll genre to your collection, wanted a decent compilation for your car or needed a collection of rock and roll classics for a party, then you cant go wrong with this set.
The 3rd version was released in 1995 by EMI and the title changed to AC/DC Boom Box and was repackaged in a box that resembles a wooden box with the AC/DC Live 2 CD added to make a 16 CD box. Yours will probably be the EMI box or the FMR box as thay are the only ones that have the lyrics printed in the inserts. The EMI box was the first time the CDs were remastered in Australia.
