Very dissatisfied with this set.
On the ‘something heavy going down’ cd they removed the track ‘radar love’.
The rareties disc contains tracks that were released as B-sides , so if you bought the cd singles in the time, you already have them EXCEPT for 2 tracks that were taking from a 2015 Ahoy concert. They see light of day for the very first time.
The ‘Naked’ B-sides disc is a poor copy from the ‘naked limited 3cd edition’ from 2000. They took several tracks from that set, but not all, so you still need that set ‘to be complete’.

Non of the albums contains any bonus tracks (eventhough the 2cd Live only runs for 35/40 minutes a disc.

A missed opportunity if this was aimed at fans, because you get nothing (except for the 2 ahoy 2015) new.

But if you’re new at the Earring, then it’s a must buy

Arnold Evertsen

No news for the real fan. Where is the live version of I’ll Make It All Up To You from 1984?


Haven’t they got enough money without re hashing
Previous releases give us something really. New like 60 and early 70s live stuff

Bruce Kelso

why is there no live shows from 1970 to 73. this was their peak heavy progessive period. it would be a huge treat for fans of the pre radar love days. in 1969 they made a movie called eight miles high that shows the band on the road/playing live in a tent and them arriving in the u.k. for the recording of the 8 miles high lp. didnt vpro radio record them? this is a goldmine for the true fan but my interest in them was over by the 1973.

william d wolford

looks like you still need to have the limited “Fully Naked” triple CD set to have everything

James A Gates

Really looking forward to this release, the studio box was excellent indeed so a live box is an essential purchase

chris curry

I’ve got all the live albums.Is this really worth buying for the few extras?

Paul Wren

The band’s studio cover version of The Byrd’s “Eight Miles High” covered an entire side of vinyl, ie about twenty minutes in length. I wonder how long it is on these live versions?


I think you might be disappointed: The version of 8 Miles High on “Live” runs exactly 10 minutes, the acoustic version on “The Naked Truth” just 4:42.

Larry Davis

Coolness about this Golden Earring box…still need the studio recordings 29CD box first…as for the Genesis one…there IS one…with all the live albums in it, even the 2007 one from Rome…plus there is a DVD one of all the concert videos…as for recording every tour, that’s what their box was, with every live album…”Seconds Out”, “Three Sides Live”, etc…

Peter Anderson

Plus one on the Genesis live box idea! Please pass on to Mr Banks et al.


Still need to get my hands on these GE boxes. I’ve got the Red Bullet box and all the other albums, but these box-only compilations… GRRR.

Steven Roberts

Nice looking set.

I wish Genesis would do a similar live set, with a concert maybe from each tour. I’d buy that in a heartbeat….


I wish I knew more about about Golden Earring than just Radar Love, excellent though it is….


Listen to ‘Twilight Zone’, way better than Radar Love! Was a huge hit in Europe.


Golden Earring live were good no matter when – however, I’d have loved to have some early live stuff from the early 70s. Still, the guys give you value for money…


Great box from an excellent Dutch group.

Wayne Olsen

Nice set! This will go nicely next to the studio box.

John Purlia

And only 3 versions of Radar live…
