"The Charisma Years" as a lavish box set representative of all of Van der Graaf Generator's work for Charisma Records
Between the years 1970 - 1978, the band released eight albums (two of which were under the Van der Graaf name) for the legendary label. Each record was groundbreaking and the influence of the band's unique music would be felt by artists of many different musical genres in the decades that followed
The albums "H to He Who Am the Only One", "Pawn Hearts", "Godbluff" and "Still Life" have been remixed from the original multi-track tapes in stereo and 5.1 surround sound by Stephen W Tayler
"The Charisma Years" comes as a 20-disc box set with 17 CDs and 3 Blu-ray discs. The set includes all Charisma albums remastered from the first generation master tapes and a 68-page book, rare photos and CDs with a previously unreleased complete concert in Paris from 1976, as well as all surviving BBC sessions and Blu-Rays with all TV recordings such as "Beat Club" in 1970, or the performance at the Bataclan in Paris in 1972.
