Four CD collection. Samson's career goes back to the mid-1970s London pub and club circuit. This collection kicks off with 1985's Thank You And Goodnight, the acclaimed live album recorded in Holland and Germany in March and April 1984 on the tour to promote the Don't Get Mad Get Even album. The band powered through versions of classics including 'Losing My Grip', 'Vice Versa', 'Tomorrow Or Yesterday' and 'Mr Rock And Roll', as well as five tracks from the recently released album. This first CD is augmented by the addition of the Live At Mildenhall 1982 three track EP, featuring the Samson/Moore/Jupp/Aylmer line-up on their first major UK outdoor appearance at the East Anglia Rock Festival, Mildenhall, Suffolk on 24th July 1982. Following the split, he formed Paul Samson's Empire to promote Joint Forces. They are captured live here on Paul Samson's Empire Live At The Marquee at London's legendary club on 29th May 1986, with a set that includes 'Burning Emotion', 'Vice Versa' and 'Earth Mother', as well as new compositions that show a more commercial side. This disc also includes three studio bonus recordings from the band; 'Tomorrow', 'Don't Turn Away' and 'Stranger'. Whilst recording a new studio album in 2002, Paul was diagnosed with cancer and passed away on the 9th August. This set shows that there were many sides to his playing and songwriting, and that he was at his inventive and improvisational best on stage.
