The Complete Jan Akkerman is a new 26 CD box set which brings together all the studio albums (and more) of Dutch guitar legend Jan Akkerman, who found international success with the band Focus.

The creative guitarist is well known for his individualistic style, combining rock, jazz, blues, and baroque into his solo projects. This 26-disc set includes the solo studio long-players, his most important live recordings and a CD of rare and previously unreleased tracks.

The booklet includes a biography, some unpublished photos and an album-to-album breakdown, featuring full credits (including never-before-published facts about who played what on specific albums) and Jan’s own memories about the 23 studio and live albums, taken from recent interviews with Jan.

In terms of mastering, these have come from the best available sources, including analog two-track tapes, digital safety copies, and the odd DAT tape (for the rarities disc). Where master tapes have disappeared or been untraceable, then “a few” needle drops have been used. Everything has been remastered “carefully” to maintain dynamic range, and some are even flat transfers because they didn’t need enhancing in any way.
