The first-ever career-spanning boxed set! Produced and compiled to celebrate 50 years of the New Rhythm and Blues Quartet—NRBQ! Founded in 1966 in Shively, Kentucky, NRBQ has given their dedicated fan base 50 years of surprises and exceptional live shows. No style of music is safe around NRBQ as their repertoire consists of choice, wide-ranging covers (their first Columbia album for example, found them covering Eddie Cochran, Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee, and Sun Ra) to their own compositions, many, also covered by other artists (Bonnie Raitt, Dave Edmunds, She And Him, Steve Earle, Los Lobos). Playing all kinds of music made them hard to peg across the years, but it made them anything but boring. Their live shows are legendary and are made up spontaneously on the spot with no set list. They can, in a heartbeat, swing from one of their own hits (“Me And The Boys,” “RC Cola And A Moon Pie,” “Howard Johnson’s Got His Ho-Jo Workin’,” “Ridin’ In My Car”) to a perfectly curated cover, to a “magic box” request from the audience. They served as the unofficial house band for The Simpsons during Seasons 10-12 and count among their fans Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, The Replacements, Keith Richards, Wilco, and Elvis Costello among legions of others! With more than 30 albums recorded across 50 years they, have proven themselves to be peerless as musicians, songwriters and performers. So to celebrate 50 years of NRBQ, Omnivore Recordings is proud to present High Noon: A 50-Year Retrospective consisting of five CDs of hits, rarities, concert staples, covers and previously unissued gems alongside liner notes and previously unseen photos. After 50 years of brilliant, unpredictable, joyfully exciting musical explorations, on stage and in the studio, it’s time to celebrate NRBQ!

FEATURES:

  • First-ever career-spanning boxed set.
  • Contains hits, rarities, concert favorites, and previously unissued gems.
  • Liner notes, ephemera, and previously unseen photos.
  • 5 CDs in clamshell box with mini jackets & 36-page book.
