I think the message below is clear enough....
 
 
Shadow Gallery Prime Cuts
Magna Carta MA-1011

FROM SHADOW GALLERY'S MAGNA CARTA SESSIONS
Release Date :
August 28th in the USA
September 3rd in Europe

12 Tracks Newly Chosen by Shadow Gallery in 2007
Unreleased Demo from "Carved In Stone" - ("Rule The World")
New Band Edits of Two Tracks from "Legacy" - ("The Crusher" and "Colors")
Limited Edition DigiPak



Shadow Gallery began in the early 1980s under the name Sorcerer, changing their name just in time to sign with Magna Carta Records in 1991. It was a young band joining forces with a young label. Both were doing something brave and fraught with risk: They were making music that is complex enough to merit careful attention, built around a compelling but oddly non-commercial blend of virtuosity and emotion, and saying that maybe there's a place in the world for something other than three-minute songs. Shadow Gallery uses its chops to tell stories - big stories, sometimes so big they have to span across multiple albums.

Longtime fans will especially relish "Rule The World," a song recorded as a demo during the sessions for the second album, "Carved in Stone." It's very interesting to listen to it, and then flash forward to a more recent song, and see just how crystal clear the band's musical vision has always been - there has always been a sound that they are reaching for, and the perfection of that sound gets a little bit closer with each new album they record.

Magna Carta's "Prime Cuts" series is generally them cashing in (without the artist's permission or sometimes even knowledge) on music they recorded (and often were not compensated for) while with Magna Carta.

 
Avoid like the plague.
