The lights go on, and the curtain comes up — on Legacy Recordings' brand-new Setlist series of live collections from an A-list of core artists on the Columbia, Epic, and RCA labels. Hand-picked and sequenced by aficionados and (in some cases) the artists themselves, the first 11 volumes in the Setlist series – by BLUE ÖYSTER CULT, CHEAP TRICK, JEFFERSON AIRPLANE, JUDAS PRIEST, KANSAS, TED NUGENT, QUIET RIOT, and REO SPEEDWAGON – will be available at all physical and digital retail outlets starting July 13.In an exciting new configuration, each single-CD volume in the Setlist series will consist of remastered .mp3-ready live tracks drawn from each artist's vast archive of live album recordings. The CD is embedded with computer-accessible .pdf files containing liner notes essays, discographical information, photography, bonus features, and more. The package itself will be a plastic-free, 100% recycled paper, recyclable eco-friendly digi-pak, and the product line will be priced for budget-minded consumers. The Setlist series takes advantage of the multitudes of live recordings – some rarities, others released on best-selling albums, and still some others remaining previously unreleased in the vaults – until now. In the case of ALABAMA, QUIET RIOT, and REO SPEEDWAGON, at least half the Setlist tracks are previously unreleased. Multiple unreleased tracks or rarities can also be found on the Setlists for BLUE ÖYSTER CULT, JEFFERSON AIRPLANE, JUDAS PRIEST, and KANSAS. The Setlist series follows up Legacy's successful Playlist series launched two years ago. Each volume reflected an insider's musical tastes, with familiar tracks and hits alongside rarities, out-of-print, hard-to-find, and unreleased material that is characteristic of the Legacy experience.
