A rare set of historic performances by the Climax Blues Band is unveiled on this double CD box set of high quality radio show recordings, recently discovered among the BBC archives. Heard for the first time on CD, these expertly re-mastered tracks from 1970 to 1978, capture the unique ‘Climax sound’ with its blend of vocal harmonies, sax and guitar, created by the late Peter Haycock (guitar) and Colin Cooper (vocals and saxophone). Disc 1 has 15 tracks with ‘Spoonful,’ ‘Goin’ To New York’ and ‘Milwaukee Truckin’ Blues’ among the highlights. Disc 2 has a further 14 items including international hit single ‘Couldn’t Get It Right’. Extensive liner notes by Chris Welch, aided by founder member bass guitarist Derek Holt, tell the fascinating story of the group and background to these long lost recordings.
