Synopsis

Album Description
2008 release from Van Der Graaf Generator, a collection of archive recordings from the band's 'lost' period, recorded between 1972 and 1975: Post Pawn Hearts and pre Godbluff. Peter Hammill personally compiled the album from rare and archive tapes. Some overdubs were added but the whole album was recorded in nine hours to retain the spirit of the original venture. Some are studio live recordings and others are studio rarities. They are often works in progress that never made it vinyl in this form but have the basis for later tracks. It has at times a random freeform nature with some band versions of solo songs. PHRL.

CD Reviews

Great!!! *IF* you are a die hard VDGG fan!
Lee H. Hasselman | Pittsburgh,Pa. | 12/15/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"TIME VAULTS actually came out around 1985-86 on LP VINYL, when I purchased it. Being almost;,insane at the time, CRAVING ANY NEW/{unheard of Van der Graff}, this WAS the perfect medicine!. The 'Liquidator' is a beautiful 'pre-composition' of almost a full song, and STILL my favorite ;{ Keep in mind these are tapes from the PRE-CD Era!},so fidelity is NOT the reason for purchase!!!
, but *TRUE*! VDGG *Outakes from studio sessions I still love and cherish!
SUMMARY!; If you are a"DIE HARD VAN FAN" as I AM, You MUST! purchase this for historic sake.. IF, you are a listener/CRITIC that love's to pick it apart *things* because you have no REAL life,DON'T!, WASTE OUR BELOVED, LOYAL!!!, Van Der Graff's community's time!
Merry Christmas to ALL!

NOT THEIR BEST INDEED. NOT FOR BEGINNERS

"I AM A VERY, VERY HUGE FAN OF VDGG, BUT I ADMIT THIS CD IS JUST FOR ULTRA HARD CORE FANS. IT INDEED HAS A COUPLE OF JEWELS, BUT THE SOUND IS TERRIBLE ON SOME TRACKS, LIKE BAD DEMOS. THE SOUND QUALITY AND MUSIC FROM THE STUDIO ALBUMS BLOWS THIS ONE AWAY."
