Bjork: Family tree CD 1 & 2.

In the next days I am going to post one of my favourite CD Boxes: BJORK's "Family Tree". Released in 2002, between "Vespertine" and "Medulla", this wonderful collection of songs is rather peculiar, being it 5 (mini)CDs, two of which are called "Roots", two are called "Beats", and the last one "Strings", that span throught the whole career of the icelandic singer, with both scarsely or totally unknown songs and re-arrangements or remixes of famous ones.
Today I'll start off with CD 1 & 2, "Roots": in the first you will find five songs played between 1980 and 1987, one of which solo, the rest with Kukl, Bjork's first punk band, and with Sugarcubes, while the second's tracklist is made of five more songs, but this time more recent ones (1996 to 2001) from her solo career, with new arrangements and a beautiful live version of "Generous palmstroke" (one of my favourites) for strings and voice at Accademia S. Cecilia in Rome.
For the tracklists see Amazon, and fore more info about Bjork take a look at her well-made official site (also for "Family tree") or her page @ Wiki.

Would love to have a listen but unfortunately it's not there any more. Maybe Rapidshare or yousendit would be more friendly?

Please repost if possible.

Thanks and love your blog!
