The Tracii Guns League Of Gentlemen is a Rock And Roll band that leans heavy into 1970’s British and American blues based hard rock. Guns chose all veteran stage and studio performers to round out his latest group, including an exciting young frontman, vocalist Scott Foster Harris, who hails from Texas and delivers a very soulful southern bluesy rock vocal style. Together the members combine for an impressive musical alliance that has created one of the most impressive classic rock debut records in years.
This 2013 release from the English hard rock legends features live material culled from the band's 2011 Forevermore world tour. The first disc, Made in Britain, features songs lifted from nine sold-out U.K. shows, and includes fan favorites like "Here I Go Again," "Ain't No Love in the Heart of the City," and "Still of the Night," while the second collection, The World Records, includes hits like "Slide It In," "Bad Boys," and "Soldier of Fortune," all of which were taken from international performances.

The Complete Album Collection is Paul Simon's Complete Recorded Works – minus Simon & Garfunkel, of course, along with "Slip Sliding Away" – and, as a whole, it is a mightily impressive body of work, showcasing an artist who remains restless and curious four decades into his career. The package is handsome, presenting each CD as a mini-LP, the sound is terrific, the price is affordable, and the scope is complete, so The Complete Album Collection is in every way an upgrade over the previous The Complete Studio Recordings.
