First ever complete career retrospective from this highly influential band collects together material from a 35 year career. Compiled and designed in collaboration with the band, this set features singles, b-sides and key album tracks including work recorded for Cherry Red Records and the band's own Ambivalent Scale label. Includes the previously unreleased track 'Tamarisk'. Package includes insightful interview with singer Martyn Bates, lyrics and recording details. Eyeless in Gaza formed a key part of the early Cherry Red Records roster, and continue to find new fans today. Their work - an intriguing mixture of sound art and poetry - sits outside of the world most other artists inhabit, and exists in a timeless place entirely of the band's own design.
THE COMPLETE BILL EVANS ON VERVE is an 18-disc, 269-track box set featuring every track that Bill Evans recorded for Verve between 1962 and 1969, including 98 previously-unreleased tracks. It includes a 160-page, full-color book. THE COMPLETE BILL EVANS ON VERVE was nominated for a 1998 Grammy Award for Best Recording Package - Boxed and for Best Historical Album. The 18 CDs in this exhaustive set provide a comprehensive picture of Bill Evans from 1962 to 1969, a period when the pianist was both consolidating his fame and sometimes taking his music into untested waters, from unaccompanied piano to symphony orchestra. His work with multitracked solo piano, originally released as Conversations with Myself and the later Further Conversations with Myself, was the most remarkable new format for his introspective music. It gave Evans a way to be all the pianists he could be at once–combining densely chordal, harmonically oblique parts with surprising, rhythmic punctuation and darting, exploratory runs.
