A lavish deluxe 20 disc boxed set comprising 17 CDs and 3 Blu Ray discs covering Van der Graaf Generator’s entire recorded work for Charisma Records. Between the years 1970 – 1978 the band released 8 albums (two under the name Van der Graaf) for the legendary Charisma label. Each record was ground breaking and the influence of the band’s unique music would be felt in the ensuing decades by artists of many different musical genres. This boxed set features all of their Charisma albums newly re-mastered from the first generation master tapes and much more.

The albums ‘H to He Who Am the Only One’, ‘Pawn Hearts’, ‘Godbluff’ and ‘Still Life’ have been stunningly remixed from the original multi-track tapes in both stereo and 5.1 surround sound by Stephen W Tayler. These feature on 4 additional CDs and two Blu ray discs. Also featured are two CDs of a recently discovered and previously unreleased entire concert recorded in Paris in December 1976 by French radio and all of the surviving BBC sessions recorded by the band. In addition there is a Blu ray disc featuring all of the surviving VdGG television footage and promotional films including their appearance on German TV’s ‘Beat Club’ in 1970, their filmed appearance at The Bataclan in Paris in 1972 for the French TV show ‘Pop Deux’, the 1972 appearance on “Pop Shop” for RTBF Belgium, a live performance shot by Belgian TV in Chaleroi in September 1975, the promotional films of ‘Wondering’ and ‘Cat’s Eye’, and a 20 minute documentary with live footage shot by Austrian television at The Kohfidisch Open Air Festival, Austria in June 1978.

Lavishly packaged with a 68 page book and rare photos, ‘The Charisma Years’ is the definitive collection of work by Van der Graaf Generator.
