Suede have announced The Vinyl Collection, a numbered 11xLP box set which contains new vinyl pressings of all of their studio albums to date, and also finds space for 1997 B-side compilation Sci-Fi Lullabies. The latter, and A New Morning, are issued on vinyl for the first time as part of this set, which will be limited to 1500 copies.
All LPs remastered on 180 gram vinyl except Bloodsports which is pressed on 140 gram, using the existing master. The box also comes with a an exclusive book with 2013 interviews with the band and photos.
To be honest, we hesitate to recommend a Suede box set after the shameful debacle that was the Bloodsports deluxe box set. But as if to underline how crap that was, this new box is ALL their albums on vinyl for only £30 more than the Bloodsports deluxe, which gave you one LP, a CD, a book and a USB-thingy.
The new vinyl box is available EXCLUSIVELY through a new Suede online store. The first 150 pre-orders come with a free t-shirt and a tote bag. We think you are supposed to order the ‘fan bundle’ version on the site and hope for the best (it’s the same price as the non-fan bundle version). Just to show that Suede still don’t quite ‘get it’ when it comes to selling online, potential purchasers are told that “T-shirt sizing will be random” and “cannot be specified” when purchasing. That’s all right then.
The Vinyl Collection ships ‘on or before’ 21 October and you get an instant MP3 downloads of the whole thing when you pre-order.
