Bill Bruford Making a Song and Dance Box Set Review
A complete Career Collection
6CD Deluxe Box Set (BMG)

Please watch the video above for the full review…

This 6CD box set covers Bill Bruford’s musical journey throughout his entire career. The style is very much like the Black Sabbath Deluxe Edition Box Sets.

CD1&2, titled ‘The Collaborator’ – is a collection of songs from Yes, King Crimson, UK & National Health displaying Bill Bruford’s original style of drumming.

CD3&4 titled ‘The Composing Leader’ is where Bill demonstrates his composing ability from his solo career and musical project ‘Earthworks’.

The last two CDs titled, ‘Special Guest & Improvisor’ showcase Bill’s natural talent for writing and improvising with a plethora of musicians. There is a detailed hard back book biography written by Bill included within the box that features rare and unseen photos.
