Brainbox - Mythology (expanded/24-bit remaster) 3 x CDs

SKU 15-CDP 1112
"Brainbox was something special. The band not only featured some of the Netherlands’ most preternaturally talented musicians, but in less than three years they produced a recorded legacy that was truly world class. Along with their classic self-titled debut LP, they also released a stream of superb singles.

These tracks, along with a trove of previously unreleased demos and session tapes, make this 3-CD-digipack-collection the definitive document of one of Europe’s greatest psychedelic blues rock bands. The original lineup with lead-guitarist Jan Akkerman, bassist André Reijnen, drummer Pierre van der Linden and vocalist extraordinaire Kaz Lux deliver the goods on pile-driving blues rock songs like Down Man and Dark Rose, and the hard-hitting Hendrix-inspired rocker Amsterdam, The First Days, as well as lighter, melodic fare like Scarborough Fair and Reason To Believe.

After Akkerman’s departure, Brainbox expanded its musical palette with guitarists Rudy de Queljoe (ex-Dragonfly) and John Schuursma (ex-Rob Hoeke’s R&B Group), recording memorable tracks like Between Alpha And Omega, Doomsday Train, Mobilae and the blisteringly powerful Virgin. This 3-CD set includes a multitude of ear-opening previously unreleased outtakes and demos, including Kaz Lux’s ’68 demo with Impulse, along with alternate mono and stereo mixes of many of their best tracks. 'Mythology', remastered in the 24-bit domain from the original master tapes, comes with a handsome 20 page-CD-booklet with rare photos and liner-notes including exclusive interview material."
