SBB, one of the most important bands on the progressive rock/jazz music scene since, returns in 2008 with two new titles: a DVD release entitled “Four Decades” and a CD release “SBB – A Complete Tapes 1974”. SBB is with no doubt a legend of Polish music scene. During their career, they shared the stage with Bob Marley (co-headlining Roskilde Festival in 1978), Soft Machine, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Charles Mingus Dynasty, Jack Bruce Group, Thin Lizzy, Canned Heat, Omega or Klaus Schultze. At the beginning of their career they recorded many fantastic albums, thanks to which they gained a status of a legend on the progressive rock scene.
 
“Four Decades” is a live DVD recorded in a refreshed line-up: Józef Skrzek, Apostolis Anthimos, Gabor Nemeth (known from Scorpió and P. Mobil). With the new album “The Rock”, the band get back to their roots. The music featured on this album refers to one of the best periods in the band's career, crowned with the release of "Memento z banalnym tryptykiem" (considered by many to be SBB's opus magnum). Soon after the premiere of "The Rock", the band hit the road to play several gigs in Poland. The highlight of the tour was the concert at Wyspianski Theatre in Katowice, where SBB recorded the show for the “Four Decades” DVD. This release also includes: interviews with Józef Skrzek, Anthimos Apostolis, Gabor Nemeth, biography, discography, photo gallery and bonus video material from a concert SBB played as a support for the hard rock legend Deep Purple (Spodek, Katowice, February 24th, 2006). “Four Decades” DVD is also available in a special DVD+CD limited swing case edition with an audio CD with songs recorded during the show at Wyspianski Theatre!
 
The band started in 1971 as Silesian Blues Band. Then the musicians played for 2 years with Czesław Niemen in his group Niemen, to finally return as SBB in 1974. From that moment on, the three letters came to mean Search-Break-Build. In this period SBB recorded the material included on “SBB – Complete Tapes 1974”. This unique 2CD digipak contains complete material recorded live during two shows promoting SBB's debut album in April 1974. CD 1 includes complete material from the concert played on 19th April 1974. CD 2 includes tracks played in different arrangements on 18th April 1974. This remarkable release is a must-have for the fans of SBB and of the best quality progressive rock!
 
Both titles will be available on 28th January 2008 in Europe. US release date for "Four Decade" DVD is set for 15th April (via MVD).

The press release speaks so highly of the band's early work but offers no explanation why I can't buy a legal copy to evaluate those claims for myself.

I guess MetalMind don't own the rights to those albums.
