Maxophone special box with 1 CD of rare tracks plus 1 DVD of live 1976 footage from the RAI archives!
The special Maxophone deluxe box set is now available also with DVD in PAL edition.
This brand new product might very well be the best release ever produced by BTF, including a CD with 10 vintage tracks recovered from outtakes and alternate demo material from 1973-1975 (4 tracks are unreleased), plus a DVD with Maxophone live footage from a 1976 concert at RAI studios in Torino (RAI is the italian national TV broadcasting company). All recordings have been carefully remastered: the songs on the CD were recorded on 4-tracks equipment. The DVD footage was professionally filmed by italian TV in 1976, and has a bonus video track of Maxophone re-formed in 2005, playing one live track at Radio Popolare studios in Milano. The DVD also includes bonus features, such as interviews with group members.
