Coming soon: The Creation – Creation Theory five-disc box set (Demon)

Now this is something special, with The Creation – Creation Theory five-disc box set heading your way soon, as well as limited edition signed copies.

More on the signed copies in a moment (which will definitely sell out quickly). But for now, let’s focus on the box set itself.

The set contains four CDs and a DVD plus book, all of which has been compiled with the assistance of Eddie Phillips himself. It’s described as a ‘chronological history of the band’, with the CDs including all eight single sides by The Mark Four (and three live reunion recordings from 1985), all of The Creation’s legendary recordings for Shel Talmy, in both mono and brand new stereo mixes, the 1987 album and the Creation Records album, along with some solo recordings by Eddie from 1990 and 2011.

The DVD features a lengthy new interview with Eddie, filmed in October 2016, five songs from The Creation’s two live appearances on the legendary German 60s TV show ‘Beat Beat Beat’ (from the original tapes, with three songs appearing on DVD for the first time), and 21 songs from the band’s two reunion concerts at the Mean Fiddler in the 1990s.

The book has been designed by Phil Smee and features exclusive photos and memorabilia from both his and Eddie’s collections, as well as a new extensive annotation by Alan Robinson. I know, you want a copy.

If you want one, there is a numbered limited edition of 500, each one with a signed certificate of authenticity by legendary guitarist Eddie Phillips. That is exclusive to Amazon and you can pre-order that now.

If those run out, there is a standard version too. Links for both below, with the price the same for both at £41.08. Track listing below too.

    Sometimes less is more so I’m opting for Action Painting instead.
