CHEAP TRICK – The Epic Archive Vol. 3 (1984-1992)

CHEAP TRICK - The Epic Archive, Vol. 3 [1984-1992] (2015) full

Sony Music / Epic Records released three CHEAP TRICK rarities compilations entitled “Cheap Trick The Epic Archive” something that had been rumored to be in the works for years.
The track listing on “The Epic Archive Vol. 3 (1984-1992)” is a must for fans and collectors comprising the group’s 1984-1992 period (my favorite), featuring many songs previously unavailable and most of Cheap Trick’s hardest to find soundtrack contribution material.

Among the pearls, you have here ‘Money (That’s What I Want)’ from “Caddyshack II” Original Soundtrack, ‘You Want It’ from “Say Anything”, ‘I Will Survive’ from “Gladiator”, or the awesome ‘Mighty Wings’ from “Top Gun”, but also very rare alternate / single versions of ‘The Flame’, ‘She’s Got Motion’, ‘It’s Only Love’, etc.

Additionally, it’s really interesting the inclusion of ‘Big Bang’ (Japanese version of ‘Busted’, hard to find) and lovely different mixes of ‘Don’t Be Cruel’ or ‘Can’t Stop Fallin’ Into Love’.

Limited to 2000 copies, “The Epic Archive Vol. 3 (1984-1992)” is already available on CD / LP at selected Record Store Day stores, and will be at major retailers next week.
“Cheap Trick The Epic Archive” volumes are a pot of gold for collectors, and a great melodic bunch of very good Cheap Trick material.
