Pink Floyd / The Early Years 1965-1972 box set

Pink Floyd / The Early Years (27-disc box)

This giant journey through Pink Floyd‘s Early Years is probably the most expensive music box set you’ve ever pre-ordered.

In total, over 25 hours of audio and video performance. Read more

Bob Dylan / The 1966 Live Recordings (36CD box set)

This Bob Dylan box set contains “every known recording from his legendary 1966 tour” and is an important historical document that will be treasured by many. Read more

Sting / new album 57th & 9th

Sting / 57th & 9th (new album)

Sting‘s first ‘proper’ rock/pop album since 2003’s Sacred Love is released this week.

Best advice is to forget that and go for the reasonably priced one-CD deluxe edition. Read more
