Kayak's complete works box entitled 'Journey Through Time'. contains 21 CD's, and holds the sixteen studio album (including three double albums) and two bonus CD's with non album tracks, rarities and demo's. One of the bonus CD's most remarkable items is Happy New Year, a Kayak demo dating from '74 or '75, that has never been released.
There are several Kayak-related tracks like the singe Fluffy/White Walls (1970) by High Tide Formation (with Pim Koopman, Ton Scherpenzeel, Chiel van Praag and Ron v.d. Werff). Then there's an outstanding collection of no less than eight home recorded demo's with previously unreleased material by Pim, Ton, Johan Slager and Carwin Gijsing under the name of Ten Ride Ticket. The Plan (with Ton and the Kayettes) are represented by their 1982 single If This Ain't Love/Hit Bottom. Finally we mention the version of I Want You To Be Mine that in 1978 took Kayak to the USA top-50. Worth mentioning is the fact that Universal has included an empty wallet for the yet to be released album 'Seventeen', which enables the true Kayak collector to really complete this unique album set.
CD's featuring the original eight vinyl LP's have been remastered from the original studio master tape.
