The BBC Tapes reissued, September 2007

The 6-CD "BBC Tapes" collection has been re-issued with new artwork. I think that some of these recordings have been out of print for a while. If you're not familiar with them, they are all taken from various BBC sessions and concerts over the years and cover a range of material from early pieces (including a great live "Hells Angels") through full band material from "HQ" to some great duo stuff with Andy Roberts. Most of the material is of studio quality though there are a few tracks taken "off air" with the subsequent radio artifacts you'd expect.

It's a very satisfying set, and one that I rediscovered lately having not listened to any of it for a couple of years.

You can order it directly from Roy's web site and get the full set for £45, though you can also buy the individual CDs for £9 each. If you do the maths you'll see it makes sense to go for the set.

BBC tapes

Mildly peed off that the new covers are MUCH better than the ones I've got, and the CDs are cheaper too than when I got them - I seem to remember £60+. Never mind, at least there are no extras! (There aren't, are there?). I started working my way through them again the other week - I've listened to the first three and am really enjoying them, looking forward to the rest, which have got some of my favourite stuff on. Highly recommended.
