5.0 out of 5 stars The very epitome of "Indie" (MP3 version), 8 Oct 2013
This review is from: The Regal Years (1997-2004) (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
