If you hadn’t heard the news, Saxon have a major box-set on the way. The collection details every album the band released from 1991’s Solid Ball of Rock to to 2009’s Into The Labyrinth. There is also eight bonus tracks and two bonus CDs — “Classics Re-Recorded”, originally issued with the initial pressings of “Killing Ground”, and “Lionheart – Rough Studio Mix”, originally issued on the 2006 limited edition. The Solid Book of Rock features brand new art work from Paul R. Gregory and limited edition comes with a Biff Byford signed.
Byford says: “It’s worth getting just for the artwork. A great piece of SAXON history, and, don’t forget, I get to play King Arthur. I didn’t get the Oscar that year or anything else for that matter.”
