The Polydor albums of Canadian rocker Pat Travers are collected in a new four-disc box set due for release 23 February 2015.

Feelin’ Right: The Polydor Albums 1975-1984 contains all the studio long-players from the period (except 1980′s Crash And Burn) and also includes the 1978 live set Live! Go For What You Want.

The approach here is to shoehorn two albums on each of the four CDs and they are slightly out of sequence (Putting It Straight appears before Makin’ Magic) presumably to make it all fit. The great news is that the material is all newly remastered from original sources (by Andy Pearce) so no needledrops, as has been the case previously.

This set comes with a 16-page booklet with original album artwork and credits, along with new sleeve notes from Malcolm Dome. It will be packaged as a ‘fatbox’ double CD case and at under £15 (in the UK) is exceptional value.

Feelin’ Right: The Polydor Albums 1975-1984 is released on 23 February 2015.
