Immediate Years v Here Comes The Nice
on 21 February 2015
For those of you for whatever reason were unable to purchase the lavish "Here Comes The Nice" box set, this set will be the next best purchase.
Unless your able to compare both sets, you won't be able to hear the sonic difference between the old and new box sets. The original Immediate Years gathered a lot of rare material but the quality of the tracks suffers from second or third generation tapes away from the master recordings.
Rob Caiger spent years tracking down original master recordings for the new box set to be able to release the material with the best source. The difference is incredible. The Immediate Years box set sounds flat when compared to the Here Comes The Nice box set.
Here Comes The Nice has been reissued so if you're bothered about sound quality, buy or download that version. Otherwise Immediate Years is a good substitute.
