Van Der Graaf Generator, in arrivo il box "The Charisma Years 1970-1978"

Un imponente cofanetto per celebrare gli anni alla Charisma della band di Peter Hammill
Van Der Graaf Generator, in arrivo il box "The Charisma Years 1970-1978"

E' in arrivo, il prossimo 3 settembre, un box composto da 20 dischi (17 CD e 3 Blu-Ray disc), intitolato "The Charisma Years 1970-1978" che comprende tutte le registrazioni dei Van Der Graaf Generator per la Charisma Records, con tracce e filmati inediti, oltre a nuovi missaggi Stereo e Surround Sound.

Contemporaneamente vengono ripubblicati separatamente quattro degli otto album incisi per la Charisma in versione 3-disc set (2CD+1DVD) e a partire dal 2022 usciranno le versioni in vinile.

La band capitanata da Peter Hammill ha pubblicato otto album per la Charisma. 'The Charisma Years 1970-1978' comprende tutti questi album rimasterizzati da nastri analogici di prima generazione. Vi sono compresi, inoltre: 2 CD con registrazioni recentemente scoperte tra cui un intero concerto a Parigi del dicembre 1976, tutte le session esistenti della band alla BBC e un concerto dal vivo a Rimini dell’agosto 1975. Poi, un Blu-Ray con filmati in alta definizione con apparizioni televisive e video promozionali: al programma televisivo tedesco 'Beat Club' nel 1970, un’apparizione al Bataclan di Parigi nel 1972 per lo show TV francese 'Pop Deux', l’apparizione del 1972 a 'Pop Shop' per RTBF Belgio, una performance dal vivo sempre della TV belga a Charleroi nel settembre 1975, promo video di "Wondering" e "Cat's Eye", e un documentario di venti minuti girato dalla TV austriaca al Kohfidisch Open Air Festival, Austria, nel giugno 1978.

E ancora, gli album "H to He Who Am the Only One", "Pawn Hearts", "Godbluff" e "Still Life" sono stati remixati in Stereo e 5.1 Surround Sound dai nastri multi-track originali da Stephen W. Tayler. Questi quattro album saranno pubblicati anche separatamente, 2CD/1DVD, includendo anche il mix stereo originale.

Il box comprende anche un booklet di 68 pagine con dettagliate note bio-discografiche e fotografie rare.

Nel 2022 saranno pubblicate le versioni in vinile iniziando con i quattro album "The Least We Can Do is Wave to each Other", "H to He Who Am the Only One", "Pawn Hearts" e "Godbluff" con fedele replica degli artwork originali.
