Argent were an English rock band founded in 1969 by keyboardist Rod Argent, formerly of The Zombies. They were best known for their songs "Hold Your Head Up" and "God Gave Rock and Roll to You." In Deep, released in 1973, is the 4th studio album by Argent; originally released by Epic Records. It features the original full-length recording of "God Gave Rock and Roll to You", which reached No.18 in the UK charts (U.S. #114); when released as a single in edited form later the same year. It was later remade by Kiss as "God Gave Rock 'n' Roll to You II" for the film Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey in 1991, when it was a massive worldwide hit. Nexus is the fifth album by British rock band Argent. Released in 1974 on CBS Records (USA: Epic Records).

This great box set includes five original albums released on the Epic label and recorded between 1969 and 1974 by the great British Prog group Argent, created by Rod Argent after the demise of the Zombies, one of the most important and talented representatives of British scene: "Argent", "Ring Of Hands", "All Together Now", "In Deep" and "Nexus". The albums are remastered and packaged in album replicas (mini-sleeves), housed in a cardboard box, and with the price tag of a double album this is a tremendous bargain as well. Essential! ~ Jazzis
If you’re the kind of fan of the late ‘80s and early ‘90s melodic rock scene that still follows the bands all these years later, you’re no doubt aware of the fact that the original Tyketto lineup is back together and has a new album out…
Tenor saxist Mark Lockheart, a former Loose Tubes member, is a familiar presence from the Polar Bear front line. But though this session reflects some aspects of that quartet's offbeat, lugubrious lyricism and rhythmic ingenuity, In Deep is Lockheart's own show. Gil Evans would have liked the slow theme developments of tracks such as Undercovers and Believe It Or Not, with their intensifying brass voicings rubbing at purring tenor-sax motifs.
