Rolling Boxset Thread

Postby angelsighs » Sat Oct 15, 2016 1:00 pm

I love me a good boxset. yeah, yeah I know- it's often all about record companies getting another payday after the bottom has fallen out of the industry. extra track and a tacky badge. but you can't beat oodles of rare stuff from artist you admire, lovingly packaged. thought I would make an ongoing thread for this stuff.

here's some recent releases for starters..

Big Star- Complete Third
http://www.superdeluxeedition.com/news/ ... d-box-set/

I'm a Big Star acolyte by any means (I think much of their stuff is quite cheesy actually) but Third is a superb record (and some might actually consider it an Alex Chilton solo album). this looks pretty fine.

R.E.M.- Out Of Time deluxe
http://www.stereogum.com/1895781/r-e-m- ... ssue/news/

a curates egg of an album if ever there was one, in my opinion. some gorgeous stuff on there, but if I never hear Radio Song or Shiny Happy People it'll be too soon. after some rather half hearted reissues of the IRS albums, they seem to be finally doing it right and putting some serious content on there. Would love similar treatment for Automatic For The People.

Public Image Limited- 'Metal Box' and 'Album' super deluxe editions
http://www.superdeluxeedition.com/news/ ... announced/
Metal Box extras make me drool a bit, but the price tag is a bit rich for my blood..

anyone else enjoy a good boxset?
any artist you think deserve the boxset treatment who haven't had it yet?

funny!

re: boxsets- they come out, i buy them but don't then listen to everything, or maybe once on my way through. as exciting as it is to have all of these obscure tracks/remasters etc i wonder if it is really worth it?

Like anything- it depends :)

Was listening to my Jimi Hendrix 'purple box' in the week and it's got so much fantastic stuff on there.

Let's not forget Dylan.. Some of his best stuff is on Biograph or the Bootleg Series!!

Finances dictate I wont be purchasing too many box sets, but that apart the Metal Box one is sorta tempting, one of my all-time favourite albums but I`ve already bought it 3 times already, so I don`t think the extras will make me pull the trigger on it again, an itch I can resist scratching,

Way out of my price range but the Rolling Stones Mono box set looks fantastic, if somebody was to buy it for me I can assure them I would treasure and appreciate it :lol:

Rumours that the long-awaited Purple Rain reissue will see the light of day next year, seems a safe bet that there will be a box set version there.

I'd shell out for a box set reissue of any of Prince's 80s albums - if done properly, the additional content could be incredible (e.g. my wishlist for the Purple Rain reissue would include the album + b-sides + unreleased tracks from that era, along with material from The Time and Apollonia 6 used in the film, along with a blu-ray of the live Purple Rain VHS and other unreleased live material from those couple of years).

I would totally buy a Purple Rain box. It's gotta be on the way.

This is a reckless thread. Poverty threatens for those who read and take advantage of it.

I have picked up two second hand recently.
Dylan Mono CD box
Beatles Mono CD box
Glad I picked up both.
Was going to buy the Verve CD boxes while over in the UK but passed on them. Instead I picked up a Screamadelica 3 CD hardcover book style box w/a live show and all the mixes at Piccadilly.
The way the £ is I am better off ordering them off Amazon UK.

wouldn't mind actually.. I've actually got a soft spot for Be Here Now.. admittedly mainly driven by nostalgia, but I honestly think it doesn't deserve the bad rep it gets :D

You might enjoy this robust and pretty in-depth review of Be Here Now then Paul, http://thequietus.com/articles/21162-oa ... nniversary

TBH I wouldn`t mind actually having that boxset, more than an that REM - Out Of Time one anyway :wink:

I too have a soft spot for be here now. Nothing wrong with a little coke and studio excess. Great guitars on that record.

I am going to get the Dylan box set that has all the 1966 tour recordings. That electric set he was doing then surpasses his entire catalog with the exception of Desire and Blood on the Tracks. On Australia part of the tour he does positively 4th st and it is so damn good on my bootleg, can't wait to hear it straight off the Nagra. Just like Tom Thumbs Blues on that tour a top 5 all time song for me by any artist.

Still waiting for the pure phase box mr pierce. It had better include the live performance of slide song from Glastonbury 94. I will happily spend a ridiculous amount for this. I'll sell a kidney.

I'd love to hear the Mustique demos from the Be Here Now box.

A Purple Rain reissue was just announced, along with another best of, which will be followed by an album of unreleased material. Not a box set, but we were talking about Purple Rain earlier:

Looking forward to the bonus disc for Purple Rain (although I'm still holding out hope for a more comprehensive box - surely the record label will put one out?)

The Band's The Last Waltz is being reissued in some lush boxsets.. very little actual new content though gonna stick with my 4CD version methinks..

http://www.rhino.com/thelastwaltz40

I got a good deal last week on 'Alpha Mike Foxtrot' by Wilco 4CDs of rarities from their first 20 yrs. I know they've gone off the boil on the recent albums, but this stuff covers their great years..

Sucker for a box set me

Recent ish include Neil Young (blue note cafe), Fleetwood Mac (Tusk) Harmonia, Cluster, Eels, Ryan Adams at Webster Hall and the Heartbreaker reissue. Mogwai ( all of them) and the one that landed yesterday...... pink floyd early years.

if she knew what this cost I would be seeking alternative living arrangements !

I'm still trying to summon up the courage to even mention getting a copy of this. The immersion box sets took some explaining.

drool- 4 CD reissue of Durutti Column's 'Domo Arigato' live album. apparently the original mix was rather hurried so they've remixed it from the ground up

https://www.piccadillyrecords.com/count ... pid=114188

and there's a big Sgt Peppers set on the way to celebrate the 50th anniversary. 2 disc version has a CD of outtakes, then there's a 6 CD version with more outtakes, remix, and documentary

Apparently if you order the CD and LP directly from James Nice, there are bonuses to be had, not that I would know, or have had anything at all to do with this re-release :wink:

I was set up at a record fair on Sunday. Fortunately, I made enough to purchase this box set from another dealer.

"KILLING JOKE: An Incomplete Collection" released in 1990.

I noticed that the Pink Floyd early years box is now available in individual "period" installments. I still can't really muster the nerve to spend money on CDs, though.
