5.0 out of 5 stars Love Comes Shining Through, 4 Jan 2013
This review is from: Wade In The Water Classics,Origins & Oddities (Deluxe 4CD Hardback Digi-Book) (Audio CD)
98 tracks most of which is new to CD or newly remixed and to CD, this set is pretty much the complete Graham Bond Organisation with Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker (you will need `A Solid Bond' for 6 Missing GBO tracks and the Jack Bruce Box set for his missing singles both available on Amazon), and while being a fan of Cream, I think this music is much better than anything Cream ever did, Graham Bond playing Sax and Organ rather than EC's guitar.
The music is in the early Blues Jazz vein, as always very well played; if anything Ginger Bakers drumming is quite restrained. On one of the sessions at the end of disc one it sounds Jack Bruce had either a cold or a heavy night as the vocals are a bit strained, but all the more fascinating for it. As are the 7 different versions of the title song `Wade in the water' all differing version 3 would not sound out of place on a Halloween collection.
The packaging is excellent with the discs clipped into place overlapping as is the norm for this kind of set nowadays. The booklet is well written and the songs properly annotated down to sessions and musicians and dates. The book and discs are then held in a substantial cardboard slipcase.
This is pretty much how a 4 disc set should be made and for the price excellent value. Highly recommended
