Back in time, before Sting went all tantric tree hugging he was actually making great music in The Police. This boxset contains The Police's "Complete Recordings" and is a decent price as elsewhere this is:-
Amazon UK £24.98
Play.com £37.99
Zavvi £43.29
991.com £44.04

Although the Police lasted for less than a decade, they recorded enough material to fill out the four CDs that make up MESSAGE IN A BOX. In addition to everything on their five studio albums, this box set contains soundtrack material, singles and demos featuring the contributions of guitarist Andy Summers' predecessor Henri Padovani (on the band's first single "Fallout" b/w "Nothing Achieving"). The Police's most consistent quality was their anomalousness.
Their path started in the punk environs of mid-'70s London despite the fact that all three were older and had considerably better chops (due to varying jazz backgrounds) than their rebellious contemporaries. Despite these differences, the Police combined biting lyrical imagery with a musical fusion of reggae, punk and pop that resulted in material as mainstream as "Don't Stand So Close To Me" and "King Of Pain" and as wonderfully quirky as "Be My Girl-Sally" and "On Any Other Day". Along the way, the Police released songs about generational differences ("Born in the '50s"), Irish politics ("Invisible Sun") and the ultimate ode to manipulation and their only number one hit ("Every Breath You Take").

not a cheap deal, but i doubt it will get any cheaper for this superb set. Well worth it at this price, thanks.
#3
Aah memories of school with Sting and Police badges all over my blazer. Must buy it!
#4
In my day only nerdy sixth formers liked them. Can't stand Sting's screetchy vocals
#5
Nice deal, and also, Flombard.... that is one wicked avatar.
#6
I paid close to £40 for this about a year and a half ago. Still consider it one of my best purchases. Worth every penny. Doubly so at this price.
#7
Bought this for my wife years ago for over £60. Great deal and worth every penny if you're a Police fan. Incidentally, accompanying copy written by John Bauldie, who, tragically, was killed in the same helicopter crash as Matthew Harding, Chelsea vice chairman.
