$27.99
3 x CLASSIC RADIO BROADCASTS FROM 1978, 1980 & 1996 Combining a love for British guitar pop with crunching power chords and a flair for the absurd, Cheap Trick provided the necessary links between '60s pop, heavy metal, and punk. Led by guitarist Rick Nielsen, the band's early albums were filled with highly melodic, well-written songs that drew equally from the crafted melodies of the Beatles, the sonic assault of the Who, and the tongue-in-cheek musical eclecticism and humour of the Move. Their sound provided a blueprint for both power pop and arena rock; it also had a surprisingly long-lived effect on both alternative and heavy metal bands of the '80s and '90s, who often relied on the same combination of loud riffs and catchy tunes. With the band who formed from the ashes of Rick Nielsen and Tom Petersen s short lived late 1960s outfit Fuse, in 1973 still going strong and drawing crowds as big as those that came in their late 70s heyday, the mighty Trick remain one of the USA s finest ever rock groups whose longevity has rarely been equalled. This 3 CD collection brings together a trio of Cheap Trick live Radio Broadcasts, one each from the 1970s, the 1980s and the 1990s, and in doing so illustrates both the changing musical face of the band and their continuity of quality, talent and performance ability - nay, expertise - to provide a quite delightful live collection of the group from all stages of their lengthy career. Featuring classic shows from; New Jersey in December 1978, Inglewood, CA on New Year s Eve 79/New Year s Day 1980 and from Las Vegas in 1996, this beautifully packaged set is certain to remain a much-desired collection among fans of this extraordinary collective.
