I bought this set, as most people will, for disc three, the one that contains the 'early' versions. Well, if you ever wanted to know how the 'Rebel' may have sounded prior to being signed (Hence my title description) then this is the bunny to have. Nearly all the 'Menagerie' album and the 'JT' single are here in more or less 'live in the studio' demo form. The versions of 'Sebastian', 'Mirror Freak' and 'Judy Teen' are astonishing !. 'Death Trip' isn't quite yet fully formed, but is a lovely version nonetheless. Steve hadn't fully found his voice yet, and sometimes sounds hysterical. This disc is worth the admission price alone. The rest of the set contains remastered versions of the first two albums plus the BBC Sessions set, with the added bonus of 'Hideaway' to the early gig set, plus a couple of nice 'OGWT' songs. A couple of alternate mixes also turn up, notably a version of 'Mr Soft' which shows how a subtle remix can be the difference between a hit single and a miss. The 'Peel' radio session is also included. The booklet is great, with some nice photos and sleeve notes with nice reminisces from Mr Nice himself. Interestingly Steve mentions the gig that is due at the end of November where he is playing the first two albums back to back with the Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, so no doubt this set is aimed and has been put together with that gig in mind. Superb stuff.

I'm in total agreement with the first two reviewers of this set!

As both previous reviewers have said, most fans will buy this for CD3, the demos album. The funny thing is I thought it was strange that EMI had not previously decided to release expanded CDs of both albums and then they go and release a 4 CD set which is then made available at the cost of one full price CD!

As I type this review up I am listening to the live album (CD4) and it is brilliant. I got the CD set yesterday and have played CD3 over and over. If you are already familiar with the Menagerie and Psychomodo albums then hearing the demos and early versions are a real treat.

If you have not already heard Menagerie and Psychomodo (where have you been for the last 38 years?) then this is an unbelievable bargain! I bought Psychomodo in '74 and it has remained one of my all time favourite albums throughout. It is a great album from beginning to end with no 'fillers'. Personally I think this album shows Harley at his most creative and slightly avant-garde and it is for that reason that the album does not appear 'dated' in the way that many 70's albums do. The Human Managerie was a very strong first album with a number of great songs however, at the risk of alienating Rebel fans, I always found Sebastian vastly over-rated. If I had to pick a favourite song from Menagerie it would have to be Crazy Raver. The inclusion of Rock and Roll Parade (b side to Sebastian) is very welcome.

This set is obviously some sort of tie-in with the Symphony Hall gig coming up on the 24th November 2012. I already have my ticket for the gig and very much looking forward to it. Hopefully the gig will be recorded for either a live CD release and/or a DVD release. Time will tell.

Another example of 1970's music genius. What a package too - 4 CD's crammed full of music from the heavens for the price of a pizza. I'm no expert on this band, just loving their singles from my teenage years. On the B side of Mr Raffles (man it was mean) 7" single was a mesmerising live version of Sebastian. Foolishly I didn't explore any further until now (37 years!). Well done EMI - let's have more like this please. If you like this, consider Lidisfarnes' Charisma Years box setThe Charisma Years (1970-1973) and Americas' Original Album Classics setOriginal Album Series.

...for me this is Cockney Rebel at their best and there is plenty to enjoy here, a tremendous collection of rarities alongside the remastered first two albums. For me, after these two albums only a handful of tracks (including the brilliant Mr Raffles) came close to re-capturing the creativity here. The early versions and alternate tracks are particularly intriguing, and great value... even when Steve Harley's singing gets beyond raw and carried away into tuneless wailing, it fits the bill...marvellous, and (for me) I still smile as he enters Norman Wisdom territory with some of his wo-ho-ho's and it just needs a 'Mr Grimsdale' added on the end...but I digress... this is all great... what makes the early material for me is the wonderful violin, and electric piano. The atmosphere to the early Cockney Rebel music is wonderfully dark and sinister...it has great beauty and menace.
The set is nice although (as said here before) the cover is not brilliant, rather like a cheap compilation, and I'm sure with the kind of attention to detail given in the booklet inside, it could have looked so much classier, or at least evoked the artiness of the time.
All in all, a great compilation that completes the collection very well.

Harley never quite reached the dizzy heights of these classic albums again. The Psychomodo being a completely sublime listening experience. It seems without Alan Parsons in the producers chair, like Marc Bolan without Visconti it never worked after The Best Years.
