4.0 out of 5 stars Look for "The Harvest Years" 3 CD set first! 28 Feb 2014
By Siriam TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
I always had a soft spot for the EB Band since I saw them drinking in the student bar with fellow students before going on to do an electrifying set at Liverpool University back in 1970. Sadly their released output of recorded music was a tad variable as these initial five LPs show. This with their reputation for arousing crowds and playing free gigs placed them to the definite left of the mainstream prog groups that dominated at that time and probably stymied any major breakthrough. Having said that I still think their third LP from 1971 ("EB Band" and 1973's "Oora") plus various tracks off the other LPs do show they were one of the better bands of that era 40 years later especially against the other more blues orientated "power" trios that dominated post Cream and Edgar as well as possessing a great voice was also a pretty nifty lead guitarist.

I already have the remastered three CD box set "The Harvest Years 1969-73" covered by these five CDs mentioned by another reviewer and which I recall I bought for a similar price off Amazon on original release in 2011! I would strongly suggest you seek it out instead, since although two of the LPs are split between the CDs in this digital age that is not finally such a major obstacle to enjoying the music. That box set also includes a short interview with the Broughton Brothers in the enclosed notes, plus a recording of their Hyde Park free concert set in July 1970 and across the CDs are additional single mixes and rare "B" sides so making for a much fuller package than the bare bones one on offer here.

A simple question if anyone out there has the answer, is at the live gig I mentioned they performed an amazing version of Captain Beefheart's "Dachau Blues" from his Trout Mask Replica double set but I have never seen this released - is this the case?

By Glenn Cook HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
The good news is that this set of Edgar Broughton Band Original Albums are released for the price of a single CD and all of the tracks have been re-mastered.

This is wonderful for other such sets do not have the luxury of the re-mastered sound.

The bad news is that all the albums are the original- and just that there are no additional tracks.
Which is a shame because there are quite a few live tracks out there from various festivals and the like.
And Edgar and the Band played at quite a few festivals in their time.
So the label really have missed a trick in attracting people to buy.

BUT A Mr G Wotherspoon tells me that there is an even better set that contains all the remastered albums PLUS a side of live music from Hyde Park in 1970 too for a few pennies more so maybe you'd like to check that one out too.
The drawback of that CD set is that 2 albums are included on one CD all the tracks have been remastered so that one looks to be the better choice.
Have a look and see what you think?
The Harvest Years (1969-1973)

So if you already have a couple on Cd already it may not be worth getting the full set with the extra re-mastering. On the other hand if you have then on vinyl and they are worn out or scratched then you really are on to a winner.

The 5 CD set is housed in a simple cardboard sleeve with the original LP covers reproduced.
So a magnifying glass will be needed to read those sleeves!

I for one really like them because they are neat and are easy to store and it's the music that counts isn't it?

The 5 CDS on this set are
"Wasa Wasa" (1969),
"Sing Brother Sing" (1970),
"Edgar Broughton Band" (1971),
"In Side Out" (1972) and
"Oora" (1973)
