Comprehensive 5CD clamshell box set of pioneering all-female rock band The Runaways, bringing together all five of their studio albums in one package for the first time. CD1 features the band's debut album 'The Runaways', released in June 1976, containing the single 'Cherry Bomb' which would become the band's signature track and be voted No. 52 in VH1's 100 Greatest Hard Rock Songs list. CD2 contains the band's sophomore album 'Queens Of Noise', released in January 1977, which found their musical skills honed and the volume raised. Producer and engineer Earle Hankey, who had previously worked with The Beach Boys, Sparks and Elton John, found a sound that helped 'Take It Or Leave It', 'Neon Angels On the Road to Ruin' and 'Love Playin' With Fire' become fan favourites. CD3 is the band's third album 'Live In Japan' released in August 1977. The album is comprised of performances from the three concerts in June 1977 in Japan where the band had become a massive success. The only official audio document of the band playing live it features incendiary versions of 'Cherry Bomb' 'Queens Of Noise', and 'California Paradise'. This was the last album to feature lead singer Cherie Currie and was a fitting farewell. CD4 features their fourth album 'Waitin' For The Night' which has the band as a quartet for the first time with Joan Jett taking over as lead vocalist. The trimmed down line-up created a lean, tough record as can be evidenced from opening track 'Little Sister', 'You're Too Possessive' and the title track. This album would be the last the band made while under the stewardship of the controversial Kim Fowley. CD5 is the band's last album, 'And Now... The Runaways', and although there was a lot going on behind the scenes as the band were falling apart, they still managed to deliver. 'My Buddy And Me' and 'I'm a Million' are standout originals and there are great covers of 'Black Leather' and 'Mama Weer All Crazee Now'.
