    Really looking forward to this release, which i think includes their live album “Tramcar To Tomorrow”. It will be great to see some archival footage which in itself will be pretty rare can’t wait

  2. Paul Bennett says:

    As a lifelong fan of Be Bop, first seeing them at the Duke of Cumberland in 1974(?), and an avid fan ever since, being a Yorkshireman, can someone tell me how I can get this box set in Aussie, please?
    Many Thanks.

  3. Leslie says:

    Omits one John Peel session from 10/02/1976 – why?

  4. Mick says:

    Yes Leslie especially since its one of their best ever with Blazing Apostles, Crying To The Sky & Peace Of Mind, the last 2 not featuring anywhere on the boxset. I can only imagine its not been included because of space considerations. I’d be interested to know how long the CDs are (since I won’t be buying it because of the omission).
