If I was on desert island discs, I'd take this as the only thing I'd need. Uncollected includes outtakes, alternates and rarities. The three original albums include extra tracks taken from the Blue Thunder and Forth of July EPs as well as the b-side of their first single, Tugboat. Also saves my vinyl getting worn out. All comes with nice box, booklet with the Galaxie 500 story written from each members perspective, discography etc. Oh, and a CD-ROM video on each CD. Will we ever see their like again? (Check out Damon and Naomi live or Low for as near as you'll ever get)

Galaxie 500, to their credit, combined Righteous Brother 1/4/5 folk strumming, paranoid drug talk, and subtle arrangments to create one of the true greats within American music. Oh yeah, don't expect them to be among the roster that includes Aerosmith, Rolling Stones, Aretha Franklin, Elton John, et al. This is in a league of its own.
I was pleased to know there was another disc with recordings I didn't know existed. All those great B-sides you collected are here in fine sound, as well as three different members recounting in their distinctive prose the history of the band.
Noami (I think) did some good sleeve work here, and "Today," "On Fire" and "This is Our Music" all have new sleeves, for you vinyl collectors.
Countless bands would love to achieve a sound like this, but, it's something that cannot be duplicated. Everyone swears by the VU comparisons, but hey, save it for Luna--Galaxie did their own thing.

This really is a superlative box set. If you are reading this you are probably already aware of the fragile beauty of Galaxie 500's three studio albums, their sound undoubtedly influenced by the Velvet Undergound but influential in their own right on successive bands like Low, but the real joy here is the fourth CD of `uncollected' material.

A fine collection of outtakes from all the band's studio sessions and early demo material, B-sides, etc., the `uncollected' CD transcends the often patchy quality of such projects to be the equal in quality of the three main albums. `Cheese and Onions' shows the band has a sense of humour as the Rutles Beales spoof gets the full shimmering guitar treatment. The saxophone-enhanced version of `Blue Thunder' is great and even on the band's demo songs, `Walking Song', `The Other Side' and `On the Floor' their potential shines through.

This box set really is the complete package: the three main CDs are enhanced with video tracks and you also get all of the relevant B-sides as bonuses. To round things off, there is a full-colour 48-page booklet chronicling the story of the band from all members' perspectives (unsurprisingly, Naomi's and Damon's carry a very different tone to Dean's) richly augmented with Naomi's lovely artwork for their sleeves and gig posters. Oh, and you get a full discography too. Heaven in a box!

There are times of great depression and times of extatic joy and they are all encompassed in the magnificence of Galaxie 500. As time passes, you forget just how important certain events are in the span of your lifetime. I had the privelage to see Dean Warehams' post Galaxie resurrection in Leeds (Yorkshire , England)with Luna a few years ago, and when they finished their set with "When will you come home" you felt that you had died and gone to heaven. Dean takes the Velvet Underground blueprint and re-writes it to the eleventh degree. The simplicity of the chord structure belies the depth of feeling in the songs. If you looked for perfection in the form of music, you would find this set of songs at the top of the list. I feel lucky to have been alive when these works were released. God speed.

Galaxie 500 - the Velvet Underground for the 90s. Great songs, great music, great sound. Dean Wareham's songs are some of the finest ever.
