In February, Phil Collins began the process of giving his fans a gift that’s been 35 years in the making: the deluxe reissuing and remastering of his back catalog of solo albums. Inevitably, the first round of reissues kicked off with the album that’s hitting the big 3-5 this year, 1981’s Face Value, but it was released simultaneously with 1993’s Both Sides. Last month brought 1982’s Hello, I Must Be Going! and 1996’s Dance into the Light.

Foghat came into existence when “Lonesome” Dave Peverett, Tony Stevens, and Roger Earl left the ranks of Savoy Brown in 1970 to start their own musical endeavor, and when guitarist Rod Price joined the gang just as the year was coming to a close, the lineup was complete. The band spent the majority of a decade and a half on Bearsville Records, during which time they scored major success both with studio albums and, most notably, with a very popular live album. We’ve put them all together for this big ol’ box set, one which will provide you with all the boogie music you can stand.

It’s not me, really. I feel happy when I’m on my bed, in my room, with a good book.”

During the course of Deep Purple’s long and storied career, the band has explored a variety of different sounds, all of which revealed the diverse musical tastes of the various members. Not all of these sonic explorations captured the interest of the record-buying public, however, which has resulted in some very worthy items in the Deep Purple discography flying under the radar in the years since their initial release.
