Limited Edition 40th Anniversary 180g Vinyl 3LP Box Set!
Remastered by Ray Staff at Air Studios!

This 40th anniversary celebration features the remastered original album, mastered and cut by Ray Staff at Air Studios plus the previously unreleased concert from London's Hammersmith Odeon in March 1975, mixed from the original tapes by Crime of The Century’s original producer Ken Scott. It showcases the band at the zenith of their powers, playing of all of Crime of The Century and introducing numbers from their forthcoming album, Crisis...What Crisis?

The 3 LP set is presented in limited edition box, with two 10 x 8 images and an eight page booklet featuring a 7,500 word essay by Phil Alexander of Mojo Magazine, featuring new interviews with many of the key players. The albums are pressed on 180 gram vinyl.

Even before Pink Floyd thrust their musical message of protest, the mechano-hit The Wall, under the noses of the establishment and the established, the melancholic songs of the group Supertramp had long found their way into the hearts of the young who had been shaken by one crisis after the other. The album with its surrealistic, chilling cover and eye-raising title was a success all over the world and even the sternest critics showered it with praise. Their music just floods the senses; it is as though someone has put on all the good pop records of the '60s and '70s at the same time, lamented the music magazine sounds helplessly totally fascinated by their sound. Crime Of The Century provided plenty of fodder for the hit charts and radio DJs. And even today, the balladesque collage School with its bloodcurdling harmonica introduction, the pearl-like Rhodes piano chords in the rocking Bloody Well Right, and the childlike, mocking Dreamer are the epitome of the pop cult of the Seventies.
