A Lifetime Of Temporary Relief: 10 Years Of B-Sides And Rarities - (2004)

The much revered Low at long last deliver an exhaustive, majestic and thorough compilation of B-Sides, rarities, outtakes and demos from 1993 - 2002 (10 years of their career). Featuring more than 53 songs assembled by the band, this box set contains 3 audio discs and a DVD (sorry, but i did not upload the DVD). ‘A Lifetime of Temporary Relief’ includes Low's first bedroom recordings (1993), all the way through to vinyl-only tracks from their CD, Trust (2002). Combined with a DVD that includes 11 Low videos, live footage and a series of documentaries, along with notes and images in a 32-page booklet compiled by the band, this box is not only a must for the seasoned Low fan, but also for anyone who wants to acquaint themselves with one of the most restrained, understated and important acoustic bands of the last decade. The most striking thing about this collection comes with the realisation that despite the vast tracklisting you never get the feeling that you're listening to second rate fillers - the quality is quite breathtaking, a testamant to the sheer vision and quiet brilliance of this wonderful band. Essential - a massive recommendation.
