Red Noise / Bill Nelson - Art / Empire / Industry: The Complete Red Noise 4 x CDs + 2 x DVD box set (due to, this price for the USA only)

SKU 23-QECLEC62808
“Limited four CD + 2 DVD set. Following the release of the album Drastic Plastic and tour, Bill Nelson disbanded Be Bop Deluxe.

Aware of the emergence of the New Wave artists and out of a desire to continually evolve, he announced the formation of Red Noise. Working with co-producer John Leckie, Bill recorded a new wave masterpiece, a record that would influence a new generation of musicians with it's intelligent and punchy material.
Sound On Sound and the subsequent live shows would divide opinion of both fans and critics, but with the passage of time, the album is now regarded as one of Bill Nelson's finest works. This boxed set features the complete Red Noise recordings; the original album newly remastered from the original master tapes, along with stunning new stereo and 5. 1 Surround Sound mixes.
The set also includes an outstanding complete live concert recorded in Leicester in 1979, newly mixed from the original 24-track tapes, a session recorded for BBC Radio One and a further Red Noise studio session from May 1979 plus a bonus CD of Bill Nelson's home demos. The set also includes video material, including the video for 'Revolt Into Style' and the band's session for the BBC TV show The Old Grey Whistle Test from February 1979.”

“This is a stellar box set. So many times in the past I have purchased other box sets by artists only to be disappointed with subpar outtakes and filler. This box set does not fall prey to this. Instead, it makes you wish the Red Noise had flourished. Bill Nelson doesn’t waste a track included on this set. While some may have considered Red Noise a misstep or a stop gap between BeBop and his solo work, listening to the live tracks you can tell the Bill Nelson and his band mates gave it their all. Buying this set is money well spent. Great package with photos of Bill playing guitar, nice book, a poster and more.”-John Blair
