Customer Reviews

Amazing and rare - some real treats

A superlative collection for Echo conniseurs and new fans alike. A collection of the standard staples, as well as some truly rare and fantastic B-sides, live recordings and never-published songs that are so good, it makes one wonder how some of these tunes never made it to the public before. Some truly incredible highlights for real Echo fans are "Rollercoaster" "Over Your Shoulder" (a real 'wall-of-sound' meets Jesus and Mary Chain); "Satisfaction"; "Start Again" (a really great live recording - not sure if this was written by Echo or is a cover?); "Angels and Devils"; a unique take on "Heads Will Roll" (one of my favorites). Also fantastic are some of the live covers like "Heroin" which the Bunnymen make their own like any good band covering a classic. This album may not be worth downloading in full, especially if you have all the standard albums. And some of these songs do appear on recent re-issues as bonus tracks, but this release contains some unique tracks that are impossible to find anywhere else.

Brilliant collection, but it's not all here

I would have given this 5 stars, except for the missing tracks. What's up with that? There are some really great and interesting versions of many songs, including live cuts & alternate versions. A great find for Echo fans, that would be perfect if the missing tracks were added.

Taking exception...

This is a great box set, and I'm very glad Itunes offers it for track-by-track download. That's a big plus for fans who only want the selected rarities. However, crucial tracks from the box set have been left out, such as "No Hands" (mentioned in the review, ironically), "Watch Out Below," and the Peel version of "Villiers Terrace." I'm a little irritated.

Echo & the Bunnymen's dark, swirling fusion of gloomy post-punk and Doors-inspired psychedelia brought the group a handful of British hits in the early '80s, while attracting a cult following in the United States. The Bunnymen grew out of the Crucial Three, a late-'70s trio featuring vocalist Ian McCulloch, Pete Wylie, and Julian Cope. Cope and Wylie left the group by the end of 1977, forming the Teardrop Explodes and Wah!, respectively. McCulloch met guitarist Will Sergeant in the summer of...
