5.0 out of 5 stars The very epitome of "Indie" (MP3 version) 8 Oct 2013
Format:MP3 Download
Well it's all here, and then some. They probably won't thank me for tagging them with the "indie" label but they truly went their own way and I don't remember them kowtowing to normal industry demands and it's probably why they never had the success they deserved. Albums, EPs, outtakes, demos, BBC and other live recordings pretty much sum up the Beta band's career. I would suspect, as with all such compilations and box sets, that fans will have access to most of this but it is nice to have it all in one easy to access place, and it is brilliant value. For those new to the band though, expect to find a trippy, melodic, jazzy, folky mix of songs, jams and soundscapes that are at once of their time but still sound good today. I always likened them to a latter day Traffic and I suspect that should they be on a stage at Glastonbury nowadays they'd go down a storm. Truly timeless

4.0 out of 5 stars Some people with a pizza pie made me very high 23 Oct 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is great stuff. Six discs containing just about everything they ever did. If you've never heard of them then try and imagine Beck, The Eels, Gomez getting together with Elliot Smith, Aimee Mann and Portishead and writing some decent tunes with a bit of (British) humour thrown in.
If you are familiar with them then you'll know that the first '3 Eps' set was really strong (Disc one here) followed by a slightly disappointing 'proper' album (Disc two) then 2 more really good albums (Disc three - Hot Shots II [my personal favourite] and Disc four - Heroes to Zeroes) This box set is rounded out by some live stuff and B-sides etc. What more could you want? All for under £16!

Having already bought all the studio albums I was still won over by this excellent package. To have the remaining remixes, live tracks and b-sides missing from my collection and for the very reasonable price of £16-ish it was a no brainer.

If you don't already have all the albums this package will help to complete your collection and emphasise just how great The Beta Band were in their prime.

Now if there could be some sort of reunion album to put the cherry on the cake that would be great.
