Now Hear This | Brian Protheroe | The Albums 1974-1976

The English singer's mid-’70s albums are collected in a new box set.


I ran out of time and words before I ran out of music to write about this week. So strictly speaking, this isn’t a review — but it’s definitely a recommendation. Check out the press release, watch some videos and hear for yourself.



THE PRESS RELEASE: “This 39-track 3CD set covers all the solo releases by the multi-talented Brian Protheroe for Chrysalis Records between 1974-76. Disc 1 is debut album Pinball, which contains the U.K. No.22 hit single of the same name. It also features followup 45 Fly Now plus the previously unreleased Play. The second disc is 1975’s Pick Up album, which features the singles The Good Brand Band and Running Through The City, and now has the bonus of the previously non LP B-side Back Away. Disc 3 is the I/You album, which now comes with two bonus 2019 remixes by Brian. Also added especially for this box set is a 2020 remix of the Fly Now single. Brian has been fully involved in the project and has contributed to the sleeve notes by History Of Rock editor Michael Heatley.”
