CD/DVD Releases: Peter Hammill - Pno Gtr Vox Box - Eighty Four Live Performances

Posted on Sunday, January 15 @ 20:00:00 UTC by nightowl

The double CD Pno, Gtr, Vox, released in September 2011, drew on live performances from concerts in Japan and the UK in 2010 and showed Peter Hammill at the peak of his unique powers, pushing and stretching both himself and the material in extraordinary ways. As with the Tokyo shows, one set was of piano songs only, the other of guitar only.

Pno, Gtr, Vox, Box is a limited edition 7 cd deluxe box set with a 24 page booklet (containing sleeve notes from PH), which greatly expands on the original double cd (both discs of which are included).

Five additional discs make up the set.

Of the five additional discs, one is a set of VdGG/VdG songs and one a set imagining "What if I knew this was the last show I'd ever do?," the others comprise "Songs I didn't play in Japan," "Songs I dropped from the setlists" and "The best alternate versions."

Each CD comes in a glossy wallet featuring photographs from Peter's personal collection of dressing room and way-to-the-stage shots.

Pno Gtr Vox Box serves not only as a testament to Peter's current performances but also, by the nature of the fact that songs are taken from all stages of his career, as a significant retrospective collection.

Limited to 2000 copies globally.

Pre-order now from http://www.burningshed.com/store/peterhammill/ for 13th February 2012 shipping.
