V.A. - Shapes & Sounds, Vol. 1-3 (2006-2009)
The "Shapes & Sounds, Vol. 1-3" series offers 58 amazing performances taped in BBC studios between 1967 and 1971 for radio shows such as `Top Gear' and Saturday Club', as well as some of the weekly Radio 1 programmes. The sound quality is absolutely superb throughout, with nearly every track sourced from original BBC Transcription records and though few of the tracks on the collection needed much enhancement at all, all have been professionally restored and mastered. The presentation is immaculate and the CD's have a booklet packed with illustrations, band histories and listings of all their known BBC sessions. All the selections on these releases were specially recorded for the BBC and in many cases are better than the familiar released versions, and appear here on CD and vinyl for the first time. All copies are hand numbered and `Shapes And Sounds' is a legitimate limited edition release, licensed from the BBC with the blessing / co-operation of no less than nineteen band members. Magical moments.
