Super Furry Animals at the BBC 4LP box

500 copies of the long sold out Super Furry Animals ‘At The BBC’ box set are being remanufactured by Strangetown Records and in will be available in December.

This set was originally available via PledgeMusic, limited to just 400 units, but hasn’t been available for quite a while and thanks to the high demand, it commands high prices on eBay and the like.

This 4LP vinyl box set is a compilation of the band’s radio sessions for the BBC and features Mark James’ Yeti artwork throughout. The box includes a Pete Fowler print, a stamped black envelope in gold ink and contains Yeti fur samples captured from the stage and then individually numbered. A separate insert of liner notes also features an essay by Tom Pinnock. According the the label’s Facebook page, “there is no difference between the first and second editions” (although we understand there might be some minor variation with the Pete Fowler print, with this new version lacking the foil-blocking).

As well as the vinyl box, this is also being reissued as a two-CD set. That is also limited to just 500 copies, so bear in mind that it too is likely to go out-of-print fairly quickly.

You can secure a pre-order of either of these limited editions by visiting the SDE shop or just used the buttons below. These are released on 7 December 2018.

    I can’t wait for this to come out…I just wish Blur would release a similar Complete BBC Sessions collection too…

  2. Eamonn says:

    I realise this is the wrong place to ask but is this likely to be available to stream at some point?
    Any more money spent on music boxsets and I fear my girlfriend really will leave me.

    Great that they are doing this, when Apple can’t be bothered to press up more copies of the Beatles Christmas Fan Club vinyl from last year that sold out weeks before it was officially released.

    SUPER Furry Animals indeed! Hope they sell the lot.

    Lovely! I can’t even find the original on discogs.com. is it there?

    I’ve just ordered the CD for my mate.

    Thank you! :-)

    There’s still 34 copies of the 2 x CD set available for sale on the Pledge site as I write. So 500 more are being made?
