The Graham Bond Organization - Wade In The Water box set

The Graham Bond Organization – Wade In The Water box set

It came out around the Christmas period, meaning a lot of people missed it. Not @MonkeyPicks, who has just mentioned that The Graham Bond Organization Wade In The Water box set is out right now.

An impressive thing it is too. Released by Repertoire, it is described as the essential collectors’ set, as well as the ‘biggest and most comprehensive collection of work ever’. 96 tracks over four CDs, including tracks from the classic albums, some remixed for the first time by Pete Brown and Dick Heckstall-Smith from the original 4-track masters.

On top of that, rare are several unreleased performances, a ‘wild live gig’ by the original line-up (never heard before), rare demo sessions and some material of GBO backing other artists. There’s also a 48-page booklet, featuring rare archive memorabilia and an introduction by Pete Brown.

Want more? See the full tracklisting below. You can buy it online now, priced at £22.34, which seems to be down from the pre-launch price.
