Kings Of Leon The Early Years on 7LP Box Set
Kings of Leon burst out of the rural South and into the international consciousness with their distinct, unpolished style of garage rock. Each of their early albums subsequently embraced and perfected this music, becoming the band’s trademark sound for the first part of their career. While the band eventually began to experiment with other genres and sonic exploration, these first three albums represent a family-band of young, hungry musicians paying tribute to their influences, from the raw guitar of Thin Lizzy to the southern-fried Allman Brothers Band, with all the swagger of the Stones.
This 7LP deluxe vinyl box set includes remastered LPs of Youth and Young Manhood (2003), Aha Shake Heartbreak (2004), and Because of the Times (2007), as well as Rarely, a full album of rarities from the period surrounding these albums including four previously unreleased live performances.
Housed in a beautiful lift-off box, the set also includes a 20-page book featuring liner notes by Austin Scaggs along with rare art and photos from the band’s early years.
