5 CDs make this an excellent bargain to get a whole lot of Edgar Winter for a cheap price, This set consists of 5 `original albums' which are `Entrance', `White Trash', `Roadwork, `They Only Come Out At Night' and Together.
Together is with Edgar's Brother Johnny and is live, To Quote from a fellow reviewer. Silver Lightning "Hawaii" on Amazon US
"This live recording by Johnny and Edgar Winter was recorded on a tour with both Johnny winter's band and the Edgar winter group, after doing their individual sets they would do a set with members of both bands on stage ( same tour as Johnny Winter Captured Live)"
Roadwork is also live and is rated as thus by a shy anonymous America (rare I know) thus This is live Rock and Roll at it's finest! Edgar Winter at the keyboard, Rick Derringer on guitar, and Jerry LaCroix on saxophone combine to rattle the walls of the Apollo Theatre and the Whiskey A' Go Go on this 1972 Epic collection. I suggest you read the reviews of all the CDs which have been written by more knowledgeable afficianardos and whole lot better than I to see if they are what you want.. while you're there I suggest you compare the tracks to see if they have extra ones (I'm not doing all the legwork for you!!) To the details The set has a cardboard outer , about the size of one of those bigger double CD boxes and contains five slim cardboard replicas of the original LPs. Some really criticise them but I for one like `em.. Each to his or her own. It's very hard to read the details on the back of the Card covers or course but the idea is to play the Cds and at this price acceptable. I should add that this is one of the more expensive sets others sell for less than nine English pounds but of course are by different artists.
However a word of warning. A lot of these re releases are not the original LP releases but often contain the often superior remastered versions with bonus tracks which makes them an absolute bargain and worth getting again to get the extra tracks. With this in mind and the fact that Amazon have not put a track listing up OI have done it for you. So those that buy the set can see what they are getting and for those who have the Cds to see if there are extra tracks.
With me so far??
Before I go on the cover.
It's from `They only Come Out at Night and was not only the title of Edgar's LP but an attack (or so I recall from articles in the Music Media) on artists line David Bowie in his Ziggy Stardust phase and the Glam Rock movement..
I always thought that was a bit rich the way Edgar dressed but a minor point.
