V.D.G.G. – The Charisma Years 1970-1979

17 CD ve 3 Blu Ray diskten oluşan yeni koleksiyon, prog efsanesinin Charisma için kaydettiği her şey ve çok sayıda nadir parçadan oluşuyor.

Efsanevi Charisma Record için V.D.G.G. 8 albüm çıkarmıştı. Her albümü çıktığında benzersizdi. Bu benzersizliği günümüzde de hala devam etmektedir ve bir çok müzisyeni etkilemişti.

Bu müzisyenler arasında Iron Maiden vokalisti Bruce Dickinson da dahildir.

‘The Charisma Years 1970-1979’ setinde Almanya’da çekilen Beat Clup, Belçika’da kaydedilen Pop Shop gibi bir çok konser kayıtlarının blue ray olarak düzenlenmiş halleri mevcut. Sette ayrıca 68 sayfalık bir kitapçık da var.

‘The Charisma Years 1970-1979’ setleri için müzisyenler aşağıdaki yorumları yapmıştır.

Guy Evans ; ‘It’s perhaps an impossible agenda for the remixing engineer to make the tracks sound as good as possible and to somehow make us, mainly me, have played better. But Stephen Tayler has for sure in these new mixes given us all a remarkable new sonic perspective.

“From the moment I picked up on hitherto vanished cymbal lines in Arrow, and the newly balanced kit, I was hooked. Then it was those quirky second vocal lines that I hadn’t heard since the original tracking sessions at Rockfield, and a new clarity given to subtle flute and electric sax lines. The stereo mixes included here are themselves great, and the 5.1s are a revelation! Not in a whizzo cinematic sense, no mind-blowing pyrotechnics, just more space for everything to exist, more depth to get engrossed in.’

Hugh Button ; ‘It’s almost 50 years since Pawn Hearts was released in October 1971, the same month as the world’s first-ever microprocessor chip was brought to market. Even the humble pocket calculator had yet to make much of an appearance, and an FM radio in a car was usually an optional extra. It’s quite hard now to recall a world where the technology for recording music consisted solely of tape recorders.

“Trident Studios had a pristine Hammond C3 and what has been described as ‘the best rock’n’roll piano ever’, a vintage Bechstein, always a treat to play; I believe all four of us contributed piano parts to varying degrees. Rockfield possibly managed to surpass even that with their Bӧsendorfer. Using the pedals on an organ was by no means unfamiliar to me. I’d habitually visualized imaginary bass-pedal lines ever since I first played a pipe organ at school during the ‘60s. Nevertheless the band’s switch from Nic Potter on Fender bass to me on Hammond pedals proceeded at impossible speed, with barely six days between the two gigs. Intrepid youth!’

Peter Hammill ; ‘Well here we are as young men, pushing away, exploring away. This is about as comprehensive a documentation of that exciting time in our lives as it’s possible to get. We had the luck to be given an enormous amount of freedom by Charisma Records to find our own way – and an audience – from the outset. This meant we pushed ourselves as much as we could.

It’s wonderful to have the whole recorded history of those years collected together as a complete set and the new mixes shed quite a different light on many of the pieces. Somewhat to our own surprise, we’ve had a later lease of life after our reunion album and concerts. And as the trio of Hugh, Guy and myself, we’re still working away and will be playing live again as soon as circumstances allow us. This remains a fun job.’
