The title says it all. Far Horizons is a Brian Auger, Julie Driscoll and The Trinity vinyl box set, which is available to pre-order.

Nothing in terms of rarities. But if you want the original vinyl albums all neatly packaged into a single box with a 12-page booklet, then this is the set for you.

No, it isn’t cheap, but when has a vinyl reissue ever been all that cheap? We’ve long since left the ‘Nice Price’ budget album behind. Vinyl is a premium product and is likely to remain as such.

Brian Auger, Julie Driscoll and The Trinity remain a Mod favourite. Not least because it was a band unafraid to break down musical barriers, as well as one that could still fill a dance floor.

Jazz, R&B, pop, even a bit of pysch. Brian Auger, Julie Driscoll and The Trinity were not afraid to mix it up. All of that and a vocalist in Julie Driscoll who was also a style icon of the day.

The albums collected here are Open (1967), Definitely What! (1968), Streetnoise (1969) and Befour (1970). So five slabs of vinyl (one is a double) and an accompanying 12-page booklet.

That’s all the information I have so far, but I think that’s pretty much it. as I said, I don’t think there’s anything extra in terms of the music. It’s all about the packaging and the reissued vinyl, which has been remastered.

You can check out the tracks below and if you want one, you can pre-order the box at Rough Trade ahead of its September release. It sells for £74.99.
