News / Re: New CD-Set out on June 22nd 2018?
« Last post by jpar on August 11, 2018, 09:14:07 AM »
The box set arrived today, and I gotta say, it's pretty neat. There's an extensive interview with Ben that has some fun new snippets, and there's a lot of bonus materials packaged in with most of the albums (for example, all the b-sides released during the RtS era are included as a bonus disk with RtS).

The box is larger than I thought it would be but creates a nice "time capsule" presentation. I do wish it went past 2012 and included everything released up through now, but since this is clearly a Sony cash grab I doubt they wanted to license the newer material.

That's a damn shame, you guys are really great and I would love to hear and see the whole thing. Thanks for sharing what you have.

Cheers,
Brian

Sorry, yes the whole thing's on youtube but "unlisted", the other 2 didn't feel that their performances were up to snuff (a few mistakes here and there and Glenn wasn't overly thrilled with his vocals throughout) so I don't know if I should risk posting the direct link to it. They didn't want "Selfless" to be out there but... there you go.

Just picked up on this, Russ - Impressive! Really true to the material and great playing all round.
Is the rest heading to YouTube anytime?

That's badass, Russ! I enjoyed that video thoroughly. Planning on doing anything similar in the future?

We were talking about this on the Twitter when Makiko brought it up. It doesn't look to be coming stateside. And there doesn't look to be enough new material to rationalize the purchase (plus I already own everything on CD AND Vinyl... that's accessible. I def do not have a Jackson Cannery 7").

My first reaction is I WANT THIS. Then I say woah, woah, I don't buy CDs anymore. I own all the records on vinyl anyways, plus spotify is a thing now.

I don't like how they exclude Lonely Avenue and So There. They are Ben solo albums, just with a hint of collaboration.

But I REALLY want to read the book.
