Ocean Colour Scene / “Marchin’ Already” 3CD+DVD box set

marchin box

Universal Music will reissue Ocean Colour Scene’s 1997 album Marchin’ Already as a four-disc box set in February 2014, as well as re-releasing a two-CD deluxe edition of their debut a few weeks earlier

For the Marchin’ Already box (which will also be issued as a two-CD deluxe), the original album takes up the first disc and is joined by a second CD of B-sides, radio sessions and previously unreleased demos. A further audio disc offers up a hour of live performance capturing the band’s gig at the Manchester Apollo on 22 February 1998 and a DVD –  Travellers Tunes: Live at Stirling Castle (originally a VHS release in ’98) – completes the set.

This will come packaged with a book that includes new sleeve notes with testimony from the band themselves, four badges and a poster. Discs will come in card wallets and the box will be similar to the Tears For Fears Hurting set.

The Ocean Colour Scene debut will be issued as a two-CD deluxe edition with a bonus disc which gathers up early singles and B-sides in addition to a couple of outtakes.

Their first album is reissued on 20 January with Marchin’ Already scheduled for release on 17 February 2014. Full track listings can be found below.

    on the Marchin’ Already set, I’ve recently had the Traveller’s Tune CD single on. the three extra tracks – front row, on the way home and travelling shoes – are superb.

    one frustration with this set is the absence of videos. one particular video for Travellers Tune – i think showing them in a bar, or somewhere around a piano – is ultra rare, as in not even on youtube rare! i saw about a minute of it once on The Chart Show and it looked like the most amazing thing ever.

    anyway, this one is sold on me!

    I wouldn’t imagine that reissue of the debut album is going to be a big seller….

  3. Mani says:

    A mod copy band that really does not warrant the deluxe reissue treatment. Barrel scraping me thinks.

  4. William says:

    The moasley shoals album was their pinnacle and deserved the super deluxe reissue treatment but only got deluxe double cd reissue (as far as I know) their debut was quite weak and even the band have largely ignored it throughout their career. Marchin already was a good album but I do find this almost comprehensive release bizarre given the band have long since been on the wane sales wise and only sell out gigs in specific areas of the UK?

    Still I’m glad they’re not one of those scraping the bottom of the barrel bands that have long since disbanded and then do reunion tours just for the money and in the process remind us how truly crap live they were, the good thing about OCS is they were a superb live act and did have an abundance of b-sides and unreleased material that was top quality

    About 300000 more deserving albums?
