The forthcoming 3LP deluxe vinyl box set of St Etienne‘s 1991 album Foxbase Alpha, which we told you about back in October, is now available for pre-order across a number of different retailers.
This 25th anniversary vinyl edition of their debut will be issued next month and includes the album remastered and cut at 45RPM over two records and Remains Of The Day, a bonus album (33RPM) of associated recordings from the era, most of which are new to the vinyl format. This is now available from other retailers such as Amazon and JPC.de, in addition to the St Etienne online shop.
This box will also include a special one sided seven-inch single featuring a previously unreleased demo of Moria Lambert (vocalist for Only Love Can Break Your Heart) singing over a radically different version of Kiss And Make Up, a large format (12″ x 12″) 28-page book and “assorted inserts”, including band photos, original press releases and Foxbase trading cards.
This triple vinyl set of Foxbase Alpha will be released on 17 January 2017.
