THE PROG YEARS REDUX - 27 CD + 5 DVD box set includes a hardback book, 60-page 12" x 12" Cyril's scrap book, 10 postcards, full size replica programmes: 1974 Journey Debut, 1974 Crystal Palace Garden Party, 1974/75 US Tour, 1975 Japanese Tour, 1975 Japanese Tour, 1976 UK Tour AKA FA Challenge, 1976 UK In Concert and the 1977 White Rock Premier. Also includes 4 Posters: Myths and Legends, Journey..., Lisztomania - Movie Poster and White Rock - Movie Poster. PLUS a reproduction press folder containing press releases for Lisztomania, Myths and Legends, No Earthly Connection and White Rock, as well as 6 Press Photos. Previously known as Rick Wakeman's "The Prog Years 1973-1977" CD+DVD box set: the expansive collection will now include 17 discs' worth of never-before-released concert material totaling 300-plus minutes - or a whopping five hours - of live recordings all previously unreleased. Now known as "The Prog Years: Redux," the 32-disc box set is back in production, with a brand-new list of content. Explaining the decision to overhaul the collection at the 11th hour, compiler Rob Ayling says that he had a duty to do it for the fans: "Totally out of the blue came a wave of previously unreleased concert recordings. I couldn't believe it when I discovered them. I generally know what was recorded and what wasn't - and then to find entire gigs from the 70s that had never before been released... I simply couldn't ignore them! Especially if they got released later, the fans would rightly ask the question, why weren't these recordings in the Prog Years? It was a really tough decision to make, to stop a box set in full production. But it was also a no-brainer to remove releases which have already been available in different formats over the years and replace them with a trove of music no one will own. My feeling is that the true fans will already have most if not all of the previously planned 'Prog Years' content, like the Winterland Ballroom and Hammersmith Odeon shows. They have been officially available for years. Yet how many fans have Rick Wakeman's full 1975 concert from Boston Music Hall, or the opening night of that year's Japanese tour, with the orchestra, or the Montreux concert from 1979? The newly discovered material will replace these recordings in what we're calling 'The Prog Years: Redux,' which now boasts over five hours of previously unreleased music! That, to me, is a game-changer. I know it means fans will have to wait a little longer to receive the box but given that it will contain these newly unearthed gems, I hope everyone will understand why I had to make this decision. I am convinced that everyone will enjoy the gigs as much as I do.
