British hard rockers TEN have an outstanding history of releases in their storied and a revered catalog. Starting out as a sort of solo project built around singer and songwriter Gary Hughes, TEN found their audience playing a hard rock sound influenced by such giants as UFO, Thin Lizzy, Magnum, Giant, and Whitesnake in a time when playing this particular sound was considered commercial suicide. Records such as “The Name of The Rose”, “The Robe”, “Spellbound“, and the concept album “Babylon” earned major critical acclaim and put the band on the front of the renaissance of the classic Hard Rock sound.

 

TEN has remained centered around the musical talent and direction of Hughes throughout 22 years and 14 studio albums. “Opera Omnia: The Complete Works” is a long-awaited, stunning, 16 vinyl replica CDs limited edition box set which encompasses the entire history of the band including a substantial number of rare and bonus tracks.
