“Wow, this box set is amazing. The remasters are crystal clear and most rewarding. Streetnoise is the real gem in this box but Open runs a close second. I’d forgotten just how talented both Julie Driscoll and Brian Auger are. My only regret is that they did not add either the This Wheels on Fire or Road To Cairo singles for all us completists.”-Robert Styles

“Far Horizons’ presents the groups four legendary studio albums, fully remastered under Brian’s guidance, with digitally restored artwork.

Open (1967)
Definitely What! (1968)
Streetnoise (double lp) (1969)
Befour (1970)

24 page booklet includes an interview with Brian by written by Lois Wilson of Mojo magazine and also includes previously unseen photos from Brian’s personal archive.
The ground- breaking, unique jazz/R&B/pop group Brian Auger & The Trinity were formed from the ashes of Long John Baldry’s and Brian Auger’s previous group band, The Steampacket, an R&B Revue collective, which also featured a then barely known Rod Stewart and Julie Driscoll . Adding the UKs then greatest soul/pop singer Julie Driscoll to this new collective meant that not only did the band have a unique, beautiful voice and face to front the group – Driscoll also embodied everything about the 1960s fashionable It Girl; her sound, her clothes, hair styles and make up assured that nearly as many column inches were dedicated to her stylish demeanour as much as the band’s genre bending music.
The group were the one of the first too to intentionally set out to break down musical barriers – Brian himself specifically stated in the sleeve notes for 1968’s ‘Definitely What!’ album that his concept “lies along a straight line drawn between pop and jazz and aims at the ‘fusion’ of both elements”. ‘Fusion’ at that time was not even a recognised musical term, reinforcing Auger’s credentials as an originator and innovator.”
