This incredible 8 CD box set from
Scorpio is the ultimate documentation of the 1966 world tour. The sound
quality is as good as the best known recordings. The package itself warrants
owning this visual stunner. Always at the top of the game, Scorpio adds
this crown jewel into their already impressive catalog. The covers are
all rare period photos and images that have to be seen to be believed.
Each of the 8 discs slips into a cardboard sleeve not unlike a vinyl LP
jacket. The jacket then slips into a gatefold cardboard cover. The covers
bear a logo altered from the old CBS 'eye' logo. Each of the five covers
are presented as a set, with individual names, photos and graphics. The
individual CDs can be seen by clicking on the name of each one at right.
The entire set comes housed in a fabulous looking cardboard box with a
great photo cover and a gold foil sticker. The CDs are gold, each with
a different color ink that touts 'Robert and the Hawks', along with the
tracks. As well as a lone wolf logo, Scorpio has borrowed another logo
for the CD design ... a 'Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab' type logo emblazoned
on the left side of each disc lends a touch of class. All of this over
the top excess would make any collector drool, ...but it doesn't stop there.
Scorpio has also included two full color tour booklets, 3 vintage looking
black and white postcards. And a jaw dropping fold out 9½" x 14½"
poster. You can see it full size by clicking the thumbnail at right. This
extravagant set will be one of the highlights of any size collection.

I've just got hold of a copy
of Scorpio's Genuine 1966 box set, and it's everything and more that you
describe... however... in my set, some of the discs have been wrongly labeled.
Phoenix in April and Nightly Ritual are correct, but Children's
Crusade is actually Albert Hall (disc 7), Albert Hall disc 7
is While the Establishment Burns, While the Establishment Burns
is Albert Hall disc 8, and to complete the circuit, Albert Hall
disc 8 is Children's Crusade. This is all very irritating, but in
the end its the performances that matter, and they are just
breath taking. Many thanks
for your really indispensable web site,
