Yesterday I found out that The Jesus and Mary Chain were to release a vinyl box set of all their studio albums (here), BBC sessions, a live album and another filled with b-sides and rarities. I have too admit that this had me salivating more than a little as I am a sucker for this kind of thing, until I saw the price.
So I began to have the debate with myself.
Will there be anything you don’t have?
well no, apart from the live album which is of them once they were passed their best before date granted but it’s still the Mary Chain live on heavyweight vinyl actually it will all be on remastered shiny new vinyl
you have most of it on vinyl and the remastering of Psychocandy wasn’t that good
true, but it’s a boxset, with a 32 page book!
you don’t have a spare £130 quid.
End of debate.
Here’s something that will be on the BBC sessions vinyl.
