THOSE WERE THE DAYS is a four-disc set, the first half consisting of Cream's entire studio output and the last half featuring the band's concert performances. The package includes a 48-page booklet full of previously unpublished photos. Cream: Jack Bruce (vocals, acoustic guitar, cello, harmonica, piano, organ, bass); Eric Clapton (vocals, guitar); Ginger Baker (vocals, drums, percussion). Additional personnel: George Harrison (guitar); Felix Pappalardi (viola, organ, trumpet, tonette, Swiss hand bells, piano, mellotron, bass). Producers: Robert Stigwood, Felix Pappalardi, Ahmet Ertegun. Compilation producer: Bill Levenson Engineers include: John Timperly, Tom Dowd, Adrian Barber. Includes liner notes by John McDermott. In the two years they were together, Cream's blend of blues, psychedelic rock and quirky lyricism forever altered the definition of rock music. After releasing four seminal albums, Cream broke up as quickly as they had come together, with all three members going on to solo careers of varying artistic and commercial success. THOSE WERE THE DAYS brings together Cream's musical output in a deluxe four-CD set that's neatly halved between studio and live material. Meticulously compiled and remastered, DAYS includes every studio recording the band ever released, as well as previously unreleased demos, masters, rare and alternate takes. The live half of the box set is primarily culled from seminal performances at legendary venues like San Francisco's Winterland and Fillmore West. The sound has been considerably cleaned up allowing the listener to hear every nuance of these extended flights of jazz-flavored blues-rock improvisation. The package surrounding Cream's timeless musical output sports a DISRAELI GEARS-style day-glo cover and a 48-page color book. The accompanying notes, complemented by dozens of previously unpublished photos, provide an intimate glimpse into the brief, but groundbreaking career of the original power trio.
There is a Season provides us with a stunning portrait of the development of the Byrds’ signature sound---jingle-jangle guitars, breathtaking harmonies, and constant experimentation with musical forms. We get to see a group of folkies grow from a Beatles wannabe band to one that never ceased experimenting with diverse musical forms, despite numerous personnel changes and internal tensions that would choke a horse. History has not been especially kind to the memory of the Byrds, but we are finally beginning to understand how the creative tensions impacted the end product over the years. The 4 CDs are arranged in chronological order with the first disc focusing on the original 5 members, with subsequent discs featuring various incarnations of the group’s revolving-door membership.

Buffalo Springfield (box set) is a career retrospective of the late 60s folk rock band of the same name, released in 2001. Band member Neil Young assembled the tracks in chronological order to show how the band evolved and disintegrated in the span of two years. Of the four CDs, the first three represent the actual box set while the fourth CD contains the band's first two albums. It reached #194 on Billboard's Top 200 Album chart, and stayed on the chart for the single week. The set omits the stereo version of the Buffalo Springfield album, the mono version of Buffalo Springfield Again, the album version of "On The Way Home", "Pretty Girl Why", and "Four Days Gone" from Last Time Around, and the songs "Carefree Country Day" and "In The Hour Of Not Quite Rain" from Last Time Around. It also lacks the long version of "Bluebird", only ever issued on a 2-LP compilation. Track listing
