Saxon / The CD Hoard five-disc bookset

In 2016 Edsel issued an Saxon 8LP vinyl box set called The Vinyl Hoard and the label have now responded to fan requests for this be issued on CD and are preparing The CD Hoard for a March release.

This five-CD bookset does the same job, of course, showcasing four tours from between 1995 and 2006, namely The Dogs Of War Tour from ’95 (on two CDs), The Lionheart Tour (2004), the 25th anniversary Night Out With The Boys Tour from 2005 and the Rock Sound Festival from 2006.

The CD Hoard features the same cover art, a painting by the band’s artist-in-residence, Paul Gregory and is packaged as a 24-page book.

Amazon in the UK have an exclusive version of this set (limited to 500 copies) which includes four postcards. While postcards may not have the wow factor of a signed print, it’s worth noting that at the time of writing this edition cheaper than the standard version, sans postcards!

The CD Hoard will be released on 16 March 2018.

It looks like the first two discs are The Eagle Has Landed part II and disc 4 and 3 (in that order…) are TEHL part III. Does anyone knows if the material on disc 5 is previously released and if the first four discs are indeed both parts of TEHL?

Richard Starkey

Never heard of ’em. What kind of music?


They have a new album out this week, too…

Thats what i call value for money long live saxon


If the track listing for the first 2 CDs is correct then they just repeat ‘The Eagle has Landed part 2’ so an otherwise attractive set loses much of it’s appeal, particularly as between live CDs and DVD/CD sets there isn’t exactly a shortage of live Saxon material out there (and I’ve probably got all of it!) and much as I love Biff and the boys, the Grateful Dead they ain’t. Still, for anyone who doesn’t already have a wealth of live Saxon on CD, this is a good set at a reasonable price.


PS not wanting to hijack the thread, I’d just like to add that I’ve also ordered the Saxon set.


Yeah, I also find it a bit weird that there has been no SDE mention of the Wishbone Ash box set.

Were talking about saxon


And the Wishbone Ash set remains unloved……
