Protocol Boxed Set NOW AVAILABLE!

A must-have collector’s item, NOT available digitally — a deluxe, limited edition 6-CD box set to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Protocol, the powerhouse jazz-rock vehicle for the compositions of Modern Drummer Magazine’s #1 fusion player, Simon Phillips!

Includes each of the previous Protocol releases (I, II, III & IV), which have been re-mastered for better sound. PLUS, two full CDs of previously unreleased demo tracks — early versions of the same tunes that would later become Protocol’s finished material.

Phillips, himself, composed the liner notes of a brilliant 24-page booklet, providing deep insight into the genesis of the bands and how they transformed the tunes from the original concepts.
