ALL TIMES THROUGH PARADISE
The Complete recordings from 1976-1978
EMI Music Australia is proud to announce the release of The Saints ‘All Times Through Paradise’ CD box set. Scheduled for release in August 2004, ‘All Times Through Paradise’ is a four CD box set containing all of the material recorded by The Saints between their historic first single ‘(I’m) Stranded’ and the album ‘Prehistoric Sounds’.
The Saints were one of the seminal bands of the 1970s, their influence cited by Nick Cave, Sonic Youth and The Hives to name just three. In Australia, their debut single ‘(I’m) Stranded’ changed the entire music culture and its influence is still felt strongly today.
The box set brings together the group’s first three studio albums plus B-sides, outtakes and rarities. A fourth disc, ‘Live In London’, is a live recording made at the legendary Hope and Anchor venue in London during 1977 and recorded on the RAK mobile. The tapes were only recently unearthed in the EMI archives.
All four discs have been remastered from original tapes. The remastering was done at Studios 301 in Sydney by Don Bartley with Ed Kuepper in the studio supervising. The project was carried out with the blessing of Chris Bailey.
