New Hall & Oates Box Set Coming Soon “Do What You Want, Be What You Are”…Plus 2009 Tour Dates

Hall and Oates do what you want be what you are

Rock God Cred Report:

A new Hall & Oates compilation, 4-disc set is coming 10-6-09.  Check The info below for more details:

Pre Order Hall & Oates Box Set “Do What You Want, Be Who You Are”

Taking its title from one of their earliest singles, a song that has always summed up the duo’s individual and collective philosophy of being true to themselves, “Do What You Want, Be Who You Are”  marks the first comprehensive multi-CD, multi-label deluxe box set compilation ever assembled from their entire career’s work, four CDs containing 74 tracks (16 of them previously unreleased ).  One of the most long-awaited box sets in pop music history will be available at physical and digital retail outlets starting October 6th through RCA/Legacy, a division of Sony Music.

Of special interest will be the 16 previously unreleased tracks, which can be roughly divided between studio material and live performances.  Highlights of the live performances include:

  • “Lady Rain,” “Beanie G,” “Better Watch Your Back,” “Abandoned Luncheon­ette,” and “When The Morning Comes,” five tunes [all drawn from their Abandoned Luncheonette  (1973) and War Babies  (1974) LPs] recorded at the New Victoria Theatre in London on October 3, 1975, the first Daryl Hall and John Oates show in England, where their popularity would rival the U.S.;
  • “I Want Someone,” from 2008, the first audio ever released from the popular web series – one of the songs that bonded Daryl Hall and John Oates together back in the ’60s, when they realized that they both loved the tune, as first done by Detroit R&B vocal group the Mad Lads on Stax-Volt in 1966;
  • “Everytime You Go Away,” recorded 1996 in Tokyo, an explosive 10-minute version of the song that was introduced on 1980’s Voices , and became a massive #1 U.S. hit for England’s Paul Young in 1985;
  • “Starting All Over Again,” recorded at Tokyo’s Budokan in 1995, an evocative take on Mel & Tim’s 1973 soul standard (originally covered by Daryl Hall and John Oates in 1990, on Change of Season ;
