Chrome / Chrome Box 7LP vinyl box

Chrome

Cleopatra Records are reissuing a limited edition version of Chrome Box, a vinyl set featuring the work of  California art rockers Chrome.

Originally issued by Subterranean Records in late 1982, the original six-LP set is now expanded to seven 180g vinyl records thanks to the inclusion of 1984 album Into The Eyes of the Zombie King, which hasn’t been available on vinyl for almost three decades.

These records come packaged in a silk screened box with a 40- page book containing extensive liner notes and rare photos.

Chrome Box is available on 26 January 2015 in the UK although it’s been available in North Americafor a few weeks.

  1. Charles Hodgson says:

    Nice! Hoping for a CD edition, though…

  2. Gary Russell says:

    Weird – so a boxset pulling together the Creed/Edge era *without* Red Exposure and adding Zombie King. One day perhaps someone will get ahold of the reissue rights for Chrome and do it all properly.

  3. Mark A says:

    Yes, I agree with Gary regarding Red Exposure, a very good album in the band’s classic phase (Creed/Edge). It must be a rights issue, although Blood on the Moon is also Beggars Banquet. In any case, a CD version of the box (with Zombies added) would be good for those who missed out the first time. Even better, however, would be the inclusion (along with Red Exposure) of the first Chrome album–Visitation–which is not really a great album when compared with the next few, but is rarer than most and an interesting document of what would soon become Chrome in it’s fullest iteration with both Creed and Edge.
