Coming in a beautiful package in the form of a magnetic tape box, this collection of unreleased material is the occasion to hear a band at work and be the witness of their quick progess. All the Cadence classics are here in their rough and unpolished forms some substantially different from the issued takes. Made mainly for die-hard fans who can compare to the released version, this is a fascinating journey into the studio with Phil and Don Everly. The set is completed by a deluxe booklet, superbly designed too, including song by song liner notes with rare and unseen photos. Another first rate release from the German bear.
