The Complete Studio Recordings 1983-2004 is a seven-CD box set contains all the albums alongside bonus discs of rarities, radio sessions and remixes respectively. Even if this is more than you want, it’s hard to grumble when this is little more than £20.

  1. England says:

    Complete studio recordings??
    err…where is the stuff with Pete Wylie?

  2. Russell says:

    Yeah, this would have been an ideal opportunity to release the Length mix of Sinful (Scary Jiggin’ With Doctor Love) on cd.

  3. richie says:

    As someone who had a couple of The Farm`s albums and gave them away, why? I do not know, I welcome this box set. As you will have gathered I`m not a Farm completist so I reckon this set is fantastic value and it looks great.

  4. Paul English says:

    Remember the free 12″ with Spartacus? Supposed to limited but was around for ages. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a vinyl copy without it.

  5. Gazelle says:

    I’ll be surprised if there are many takers for seven discs’ worth of Farm material; for me at least, their essential recordings could all sit comfortably on a single disc, notably stalwarts ‘Hearts And Minds’, ‘Family Of Man’ and ‘Same Old Story’, singles ‘Groovy Train’ and ‘All Together Now’ and the classic reworking of ‘Stepping Stone’. Bizarrely, despite the capacity offered by seven discs, this so-called ‘complete’ studio recordings apparently has insufficient space for the original Terry Farley 7″ (3:20) and 12″ (6:30) Ghost Dance Mixes and Gary Allen’s mix (7.05) of ‘Stepping Stone'; instead, we are merely presented with the later Matrix Mix (5:00).

  6. thegreatelephant says:

    well, i have a soft spot for them and 20 quid is great value

  7. Lee Carson says:

    According to Amazon the release date has been moved back to July. Anyone know why?

    • Neil says:

      Edsel seem to like giving release dates for stuff and then changing it at the last minute those Catatonia reissues have had their release dates changed about 3 or 4 times now.
