    It’s amazing how fast this thread, and indeed my own one highlighting a similar upcoming release by another act, get swept away into the ether! I took a break from the forum for about a year and on coming back the speed threads get buried happens faster than ever before.

    Such a great release. Very excited.

    I think it’s time the music forum got broken up a bit into genres or something as otherwise threads like this, are just getting lost. And this is a release that is actually of interest to a lot of members, so if you’re posting about something more niche, forget it!

    They're releasing these in a strange order, and I love them for it. Looks like they're going to make me wait until the end of Q1 for Drastic Plastic, but then again they may opt for Live in the Air Age or the debut.

    Goodness me this is a great series, and long overdue. Not much else to say really. There's going to be a 2-disc set for those who aren't in for the whole box, but personally speaking I can't imagine not grabbing these just as quickly as I can.

    The two disc version looks like this:

    DISC ONE: CD

    MODERN MUSIC
    THE ORIGINAL STEREO MIX:

    1. ORPHANS OF BABYLON
    2. TWILIGHT CAPERS
    3. KISS OF LIGHT

    5. THE GOLD AT THE END OF MY RAINBOW
    6. BRING BACK THE SPARK
    7. MODERN MUSIC
    8. DANCING IN THE MOONLIGHT (ALL ALONE)
    9. HONEYMOON ON MARS
    10. LOST IN THE NEON WORLD
    11. DANCE OF THE UNCLE SAM HUMANOIDS
    12. MODERN MUSIC (REPRISE)
    13. FORBIDDEN LOVERS
    14. DOWN ON TERMINAL STREET
    15. MAKE THE MUSIC MAGIC
    BONUS TRACK
    16. SHINE (B-SIDE OF SINGLE)

    These sets are great, I'm on this like a fat kid on a mcnugget.

    I see that Live! In the Air Age isn't included in this set, although it was recorded during the Modern Music tour. Here's hoping it gets a deluxe release of it's own.

    And yes, I'm salivating over a similar Drastic Plastic set as well.

    I am glad this release is getting some love. One of my favorite
    records of the late 70's, having become a fan with Sunburst Finish. What a grand treatment it's getting! And deservedly so.
    Bring on the Be Bop...

    I've got the first two boxes, and this is a welcome addition.
    CD3 was on the BBC boxed set, so it's a pity they didn't try a little harder and offer a hi-res version on the DVD.
    Does anyone know if the Chicago recording is the longer version, with the 18-minute 'Blazing Apostles'?
    The version still available on Dime has very thin sound, so an upgrade would be nice, however the "official bootleg" title for CD4 has tempered my expectations!

    Yes, saw this and it's tempting. Quite a lot of additional content. By a considerable measure my favourite of theirs. Think it features their best songwriting and production.

    Weird. That is the front cover artwork I made for the fan shared ROIO of that show which I mastered from my cassette tape to CDR(minus the "mp3 version" note that I guess someone added). I can post the back cover later if anyone is interested.

    P.S. For the front cover that is a scan/photo of a BBD concert t-shirt I have. And for part of the back cover I used an image from a concert program (shot of Bill and Charlie along with a Rotosound string ad on the same page IIRC).

    Hmmm. I don't think I ever got a version of B.A. from this show that didn't face out at some point (around 13 minutes), not sure if there is a complete version out there (is there?).
