Product Description

Stock is extremely rare and is sold on a first come first served basis. The stellar 45-year career of singer-songwriter-guitarist Nils Lofgren receives a comprehensive retrospective in Face the Music, a Limited Edition 9CD + Bonus DVD boxed set that is individually hand signed and numbered by the artist. The collection's music component, selected by Lofgren himself, comprises 169 tracks, stretching back to Lofgren's early work with his Washington, D.C.-area band Grin, which he founded at the age of 17 in 1968, and surveying both his major-label solo albums and independent self-released music. Two of the CDs contain 40 previously unreleased tracks and rarities. The DVD features 20 video clips selected from a body of performances as diverse as Nils' career. A detailed, lavishly illustrated 136-page booklet, with an introduction by noted rock journalist Dave Marsh, contains Lofgren's track-by-track commentary and personal reflections on his work, as well as his tours of duty as a sideman with such luminaries as Neil Young, Bruce Springsteen, and Ringo Starr. The set also contains homages to Lofgren by such colleagues as Bonnie Raitt, Joe Walsh, Sting, Bono, and Paul Rodgers. In its entirety, the set gives a comprehensive, intimately detailed picture of the performer Neil Young - who hired the 18-year-old Lofgren to play piano and guitar on After the Gold Rush in 1969 - calls "an inspiration to me for many years." A true triple threat, Lofgren has distinguished himself as the writer of melodic, affecting, and hard-rocking songs, a sensitive and seemingly ageless singer, and a guitarist of incomparable power and imagination.

Format: Audio CD
I recently re-housed & trimmed down my music "library", and was surprised how many box sets of long-term (ie, since the mid-60's) favourites had been accumulated....generally along with all the originals in a mix of vinyl/CD.

This one, though, is a wee bit special. I do have everything from Grin to The Loner, and a few of those excellent soundboard recordings seeping out of every independent label.....but still there must be almost 3 hours of unreleased & rare tracks within the near 12-hour 9-CD audio part. The 2-hour DVD, though, is stuffed with gems, very little of it (if any) to be found on the official DVDs.

The book is also that little bit different from the usual....a genuine life-story, and Nils own words to describe his own choice of tracks, very personalised.....and there's a wee, signed & numbered card, just to boost your collector's value, eventually :0)

To pick stand-out favourites would be difficult, there are so many....some magical songs, some fabulous acoustic guitar work, and a shed-load of blistering, soaring electric guitar tones. "Delivery Night", one of the live tracks, perhaps epitomises Nils live, great lyrics (a lot of relationship stuff in his work), driving rhythm, and amazing guitar.

Play it loud...!!!

If you love Nils then you will love this amazing collection. Just say that you have forgotten (for a millisecond) how great the man is then pick any one of the 9 cds and play it - you'll quickly be reminded of his brilliance. The packaging and the comprehensivwe booklet cannot be faulted although admitedly it is quite a costly collection (watch out the price does fluctuate wildly on Amazon).
Just buy it!

What can i say - it's Nils. Didn't have enough cash to buy this at a cheaper price at the live gig and Amy, Mrs Lofgren, didn't take credit card, but this seller was excellent, much cheaper than Ebay and quick service.
I you are a Nils fan already, then everything is here. The booklet is fascinating, giving insight into how some of the songs were written. Nils knows everyone and has played with most of them. I suspect if you are reading this I am preaching to the converted. Believe.

This box set is the pride of my collection, I have been a Nils Lofgren fan since the early 70's.
With this collection you get the very best of his career plus two CD's of previously unreleased gems and a DVD.
Nine CD's plus the DVD.
Look out for the odd day of price drop here on Amazon.
It cost me just £94 a few weeks ago but it has jumped up a little since then.
Enjoy Nils 'Rockin and Flippin' .

Nils CV reads like a who's who's of music from the last 40 plus years. Aged 17 he played on Neil Young's career defining record After the Goldrush and has really never looked back having joined the E Street band in the mid 80s where at times he's been seen as a sideman for Bruce. Hopefully this lavish and expensive box set will alter the view on Nils.
From his early days with Grin (1+1 produced by Graham Nash) is a classic to his most recent releases this box captures with 10 discs the varied career, mostly forgotten is his solo records which although not one of the most gifted songwriters is packed full of very good songs. Remember also Nils played on the first Crazy Horse record with his back to the camera on the cover as his record company wouldn't allow him to play on this as it was on Reprise, he played and sang with Danny Whitten! Live Nils is tremendous, as a guitar player he is astounding live - catch next time he's in your area. Limited editions tend to include loads of padding but this box is full of gems.

Simply put this is the greatest box set I've ever bought, I got it seeing Nils Lofgren on his UK tour earlier this year, and one of the best live gigs I've ever attended. Nils is an amazing singer / guitarist (you don't play with the likes of Bruce Springsteen and Neil Young if your not ). This set of ten discs 9 x CD and a DVD, plus a full length book, the packaging is faultless, plus Nils has personally signed and numbered each one. Over £100 seems a lot till you see how much wonderful music you get for your money, it's totally priceless, not one week track on the entire collection. The DVD full of live performances throughout his career, solo and as part of the amazing Grin band. Much of it not seen before, two of the CD's arte also of not up to now released songs Nils found while putting this set together.
This elease is the reason why box sets came along and is utterly a setr of the highest quality, hours of listening pleasure by one of the great musicians and artists of our time. A really nice man as well, who stayed behind after a sold out gig to meet folk and sign every item people wanted. Do yourself the biggest of favour and treat yourself to this wonderous set it's an absolute classic, a musical milestone not to be missed. Shout it out NILS LOFGREN, A GREAT AND WONDERFUL TALENT, THE STUFF OF TRUE LEGENDARY STATUS !

Nils Lofgren is a fine musician, singer and songwriter who has inarguably won more fame and acclaim as a sideman for the likes of Neil Young and Bruce Springsteen than for his own recordings. There was a time - forty years ago now, by Jove - when it looked like Lofgren might crack it. However, the album he produced in 1977, 'I Came To Dance' - somewhat misfired, was a tad over-produced, and then Punk was happening. His career stalled in second gear, and when Miami Steve left the E Street Band, and Springsteen came a-calling, Lofgren's fate was sealed. Mind you, there must be worse gigs than playing with Springsteen, of course. This impressive, nicely packaged limited edition box set celebrates Lofgren's career in a tasteful and apposite way, with a photo-packed and informative book, and boasting a whopping TEN discs. There's lots of unreleased gems in here, too, and such a luxurious appreciation of an artist who has probably had just enough success to know what he HASN'T had (if you see what I mean) is overdue. Some might say that there are more deserving candidates for such treatment - maybe we can all think of at least one or two - but I am a life long Lofgren fan, and this excellent set is going to keep me occupied in the long winter nights ahead. Expensive, and probably for only the true Lofgren diehard - not cheap either, but a very rewarding listen.
