New titles on the 4Shure / WOW labels.


The European labels 4Shure / WOW have recently announced 4 new boxed sets.

Each of them a multi disk set (Running in to double figures!). There are no images at the moment for these but no doubt you’ll know them when you see them ..

(The Japanese soundboard collection 1996 Vol. 1)

The first part of the 1996 tour through Japan recorded at
– Budokan Hall, Tokyo, February 5th + 6th + 8th + 9th + 12th.
Comes with 40-page full colour booklet and free bonus DVD
“Live at Glastonbury Festival, Pilton, UK, 1995”. A BBC broadcast.

(The Japanese soundboard collection 1996 Vol. 2)

The second part of the 1996 tour through Japan recorded at
– Budokan Hall, Tokyo, February 13th
– Castle Hall, Osaka, February 15th
– Century Hall, Nagoya, February 17th
– Castle Hall, Osaka, February 19th
– Marine Messe, Fukuoka, February 20th
Comes with 40-page full colour booklet and free bonus DVD
“Live at Tingley Coliseum, Albuquerque, New Mexico, 1995”. From US-TV.

Very interesting box sets no only because of perfect sound quality but also
because they perform only in Japan and nowhere else cover versions of songs
written by Bob Dylan, Jefferson Airplane and others.

13-CD Set

(The 1971 live collection)

All tracks in brilliant sound quality with many bonus tracks.
You need to understand that all tracks on all CDs and the DVD were recorded
live in 1971. This is important because there are other concerts – especially from
Hamburg and Amsterdam – that were recorded in a different year and are being
recycled endlessly on CD and vinyl. There is also a box set out on Godfather records
but that set is also from a different year. This stuff here is really rare:
– Grosse Musikhalle, Hamburg, Germany (CD 01-02)
– Hakone Aphrodite (Open Air), Hakone, Japan (CD 03)
– Amstel Free Concert, Het Amsterdamse Bos, Amsterdam, The Netherlands (CD 04)
– KB Hallen, Copenhagen, Denmark (CD 05-06)
– Pompeii, Italy + corresponding studio outtakes at Studio Europasonor, Paris, France (CD 07)
– Great Hall at Bradford University, Bradford, UK (CD 08-09)
– Community Concourse at Convention Hall, San Diego, CA (CD 10-11)
– Taft Auditorium, Cincinnati, OH (CD 12+13)
Comes with amazing 56-page full colour booklet and free bonus DVD. All tracks
from TV broadcasts:
– Hamburg + Offenbach, Germany, from German ZDF network
– Abbaye de Royaumont, Royaumont, France, from Austrian ORTF2 TV
– Hakone from unknown Japanese TV network. No station identification on screen
– Randwick Racecourse, Sydney, Australia, from Australian ABC-TV.

14-CD Set

(The European soundboard collection 2014 + more)

We start with the tour opener from almost-perfect audience tape:

  1. Picked up both The Restraint and The Quietude. Both sets make the full 1996 tour (or residency would be a better term) of Japan. Both box sets can be picked for a very reasonable price however some sellers are calling them soundboard recordings. If they were, that would be something new and very special. But they are not and each concert is from the previously available excellent audience recordings. This does not diminish the quality and value of these shows being brought all together in two boxes, but if you have all or some of these shows from other sources, you will find nothing new here other than the packaging.

  2. Sorry ridwear, that info got snipped from my post somehow, the Page Plant sets ate 10 disks each.

  3. how many discs in the 2 zepp boxes ?
