Product Description

Your Favorites Gr Hits 2CD set. That Night In Toronto DVD Bonus DVD of all band's videos (23 in all), as well as 11 new video vignettes exclusive to this package.

Amazon.ca

Canada is a big nation with a lot of great music, but the Tragically Hip have absolutely no equal in the Great White North. While the band remains at best a cult hit in other parts of the world, they have reigned in the Canadian rock scene in a way that no other group has done since the '70s heyday of the Band, the Guess Who, and BTO. In the nearly two decades that the Hip has been writing and recording, they have never released a greatest hits album, so fans will revel in this long-awaited four-disc set. It kicks off with two CDs of music aptly named Yer Favourites. The 37 digitally remastered songs were chosen entirely by fans, with the exception of a pair of new tracks, a wry rocker dubbed "No Threat" and the understated "The New Maybe." The collection embodies the band's appeal; whether you're a fan of alternative music, mainstream rock, or bluesy country, the Hip make music that just feels really good to listen to. The package also includes two DVDs: the first, entitled "That Night in Toronto" is a concert that captures all the charm, eccentricity, and enthusiasm fans expect in a great Hip show. Highlights include a unique moment in which cameras capture thousands of fans singing along passionately to lyrics detailing Canadian war history ("Nautical Disaster"), as well as amped-up versions of older tracks, from "Blow at High Dough" to "Little Bones." The second DVD includes all of their previous videos, some low-key short films that were used as backdrops to live shows, and a charming, 50-minute documentary of daily band life entitled "Macroscopic." There's is nothing even remotely showbiz in Hipeponymous, just an honest, down-to-earth representation of a group that has come to personify the best of eccentric, intelligent rock & roll. --Denise Sheppard

First of all, the CDs are wonderfully done. The re-mixed tracks are stunning.
Secondly, the DVD is perfection. No quick cuts, fancy effects to detract from the show. It's rock and roll pure and simple. Best of all, the vocals are at the same level as the instruments. Most live concerts these days have the singer way up with the guitars mixed down. Not this baby. The DVD is meant to be turned up...LOUD. This is no bs rock and roll. Finally captured the way it should be. The furthest thing from "blaw" I can think of.

It doesn't matter if you own every single Tragically Hip ever released, this boxset fires on all cylinders and doesn't miss a beat. Every song on the CD's are remastered, and in the case of all the tracks from the album "Fully Completely", remixed. That alone makes the boxset worth while. The clarity of the percussion on "Courage (for Hugh MacLennan)" more than makes up for the below average producing of the album. It's also great to see a great deal of The Tragically Hip's new songs on the CD's, my favorites being "Lake Fever", "Gus: The Polar Bear From Central Park", "'It's A Good Life If You Don't Weaken'" and also "The Darkest One". Also, two new songs are contained on these two discs: "The New Maybe" and "No Threat" (the latter one is better, in my opinion). They both are outstanding and have earned their spot along side great classics on this boxset set, and hopefully, both these tracks will not become forgotten when the Hip tour again in Summer/Fall 2006.
The two DVD's are also equally phenomenal. One disc is simply a bizarre and artistic documentary entitled "Macroscopic". Although this "documentary" lacks many things in its structure, its is extremely interesting, and is definetly worth a look. Also, all the music videos are contained on the same disc, and this is a very nice addition to the boxset. Tragically Hip music videos are definetly rare.
"That Night In Toronto" is the concert DVD which is on another disc in the boxset. This concert is completely uncut (the encore breaks are even on here in their entirty). The concert also breaks into unique split-screen perspectives.

The completeness of this boxed set almost defies description and for the price is an absolute steal. Literally every video they have ever made and what can be described as a vintage Hip concert ('That Night in Toronto') that, against all odds, brings the feel of actually being there to your living room. Kudos to the film-makers Pierre and Francois Lamoureux for accomplishing such a daunting task.
The greatest hits selections entitled 'Yer Favorites' is pretty much right on the money and is fantastically arranged. As far as the selection, any small oversights one might cite are bound to be due to personal preference - if you're a fan of the guys you've already got them already.
Finally, the 'Macroscopic' documentary is a solid insight into what those of us who have followed the band for some time already know -- this is a group of guys who just happen to be extraordinarily talented yet, have somehow managed to resist the urge for self-adulation despite having more than their fair share of fans who can stray into the realm of hero worship.
Congratulations gentlemen on your first 20 years. It has truly been a pleasure growing with you. Nicely done.

As a longtime devotee (having seen the Hip 25+ times with all official and many unofficial releases), I am pleased to add this this set to my collection. The remastering job on some older cuts that never shone with the clarity they deserved, finally emerge freeing their true shape. The live DVD is what I believe all concert DVDs should be - a true record of a single performance, unedited and uncut.
Keep in mind that I am biased because I would have happily paid the same amount for just the remastered version of Cordelia...

The remastered versions of classic songs make them jump out of the speakers like brand new tracks.Clean and crisp.I can notice a huge difference with the songs from fully completely and also with road apples tunes and up to here.Highway girl is also given some new life.You could fill 2 more cd's with other hip licks but these ones are all classic and will draw in some new fans ,who for some odd reason never heard them before and will hopefully kick themselves in the ass for not giving this fantasic rock act a chance.
Now what can I say about the live dvd?This is The Hip at it's best in front of a huge crowd at Air Canada Center.This is what people who aren't hip fans,don't get to see.They don't understand that any night in Canada these guys are as big and bad as any rock band in history and can bring the crowd into a trance.Not one second is cut from this show and the recording and filming are top notch.
The bonus dvd has all their videos spanning from 1987-2005 and it's just awesome to sit and watch them all and see the different directions they take as they get older.Also includes a very well shot documentary that I'll have to watch again because I had trouble understanding what was going on sometimes but in a good way.It has great little stories about the members of the band that you would never hear.
If you are a hip fan,you're gonna want this one!!
