Tabu box sets due later this year

Tabu boxsets explained / Alexander O'Neal / S.O.S. Band

Demon Music will release three Tabu  box sets in autumn 2013 as part of their Tabu Reborn For 2013 reissue campaign.

A multi-artist big box will be issued, which looks like being a four-CD, DVD and vinyl offering. This set will contain bonus material, deep catalogue remixes, and rare/collectable tracks, some of which will not have appeared on individual reissues.

Two further artist-specific ‘anthology’ boxes will be made available – Alexander O’Neal and The S.O.S. Band. These sets will contain all the individual releases issued during 2013 (in the same packaging) but gathered together in a box. There will be no extra audio in these boxes – the content will simply repeat the individual reissues.

The Tabu reissue campaign kicks off in April with individual releases from Cherrelle and Alexander O’Neal.

    Looking at the pictures of the first wave of Tabu re-issues and those of the boxsets, there seems to be a difference in sleeves. Will the boxset also contain the casebound book packaging or just the plain mini-lp ones showing on the pictures?

    • Dean Harris says:

      The Tabu artist Boxsets (although reported to contain the same audio content as the individual releases) do appear to house the CDs in paper/cardboard sleeves instead of the orginal book-bound packaging. I have mixed feelings about this. I much prefer jewel boxes for their durability, disc protection, and the ability to easily replace a scratched or broken case.

      Having said that, the book-bound releases are very nice providing you can manage to secure those in good condition. Unfortunately, I’ve had to go through several sets until I found satisfactory copies of all The S.O.S. Band albums, not marred with glue, uneven binding, dog-eared corners, scratched CDs, etc.

    Having seen the individual releases, I think I might try and wait for these artist boxsets. They look less likely to be an issue with damaged discs and packaging. But…can I wait that long for the SOS material???Argh!

  5. Eric says:

    I can barely wait for these! The pictures look sumptuous.

    Demon are being very very confident about the success and appeal of the whole Tabu re-born brand. I hope they don’t get their fingers burned and end up shelving some of the releases scheduled further down the line.

    Seriously, this site seems to be propagating more sensationalist news stories than The Sun was pre-Leveson. This whole thing started with bonus track CHAOS! Yes, Chaos. Then we’re down to a label denying a version of an album exists. What decade is this?

    Can we go back to photo reports only please? Bored of reading gossip, been getting worse every bloody month.
