Drake, Bob - Antiquities 6 x CD box set (due to size and weight, this price for the USA only. Outside of the USA, the price will be adjusted as needed)
Compiles FIVE of Bob's NINE solo CDs, with a disc of rarities and outtakes included, JUST SO the fans will want to spring for this.
"This includes Bob's solo CDs Little Black Train, The Skull Mailbox and Other Horrors, XIII Songs and a Thing, The Shunned Country, & Bob's Drive-In, plus a specially curated collection of outtakes...in a sturdy box w/ cover & spine art.
Like Bob's most recent album Arx Pilosa (2016), much of the material on the CDs in this box set are so remarkable it's hard to begin. As before, the material is idea-rich, sonically breathtaking & compositionally daring pop music of the '60s, will recognize a similar mixture of pop-sensibility & radical innovation, but now recast in contemporary terms and not as pastiche or imitation.
In the intensely musical world of the Drakian Academy, unassuming virtuosity and state of the art studio practice are merely means to greater ends. As always, Bob Drake is an enigma, a revered cult figure with a unique & bizarre approach to music."
