A widely lauded guitarist and song writer with an enduring international reputation, Steve Hackett came to prominence with Genesis and was the first member to release a solo album (Voyage of the Acolyte in 1975) before leaving the band in 1977.

His first six LPs (1975-83) were issued by the Charisma label and this super deluxe boxed set represents a comprehensive overview of this, the most successful phase in his career. It gathers together all of Steve Hackett's LPs from the period: Voyage Of The Acolyte (1975), Please Don't Touch (1978), Spectral Mornings (1979), Defector (1980), Cured (1981) and Highly Strung (1983).

All LPs are facsimile editions of the original releases. The editions of Please Don't Touch and Spectral Mornings have been newly mixed by Steven Wilson from the original multi-track tapes. All the remaining albums have been newly remastered from the original master tapes.

The set also includes material previously unreleased on vinyl, including:

Live At The New Theatre, Oxford 1979
    A double LP of a newly mixed concert recorded on the Spectral Mornings tour

Live At Reading 1981
    A full LP and and 12-inch EP of Steve's appearance at the Reading Festival in August 1981

I Know What I Like
    A special 12-inch live EP featuring Steve's band performing the Genesis classic "I Know What I Like (in Your
