The Pogues / “30 Years” box set

spread

A new Pogues box set, 30 Years, will be released by Rhino in December 2013.

This eight CD collection contains the albums Red Roses For Me, Rum Sodomy and the Lash, If I Should Fall From Grace With God, Peace and Love, Hell’s Ditch, Waiting For Herb, and Pogue Mahone. A previously unissued live album The Pogues With Joe Strummer Live in London (recorded at The Forum in 1991) is also included.

Additionally, Red Roses For Me and Peace And Love have both been newly remixed for this box set. Steve Lillywhite has remixed the former with Nick Robbins responsible for the latter. The rest of the CDs use the 2004 remasters.

The news of the box set comes in the wake of the untimely death of Pogues guitarist Philip Chevron who passed away on 8 October 2013.

30 Years is released on 9 December 2013.

  1. Chris Straub says:

    Sure hope to see that live album issued separately since I already bought all the expanded reissues a few years back. I hate it when they do that.

  2. Metal Mickey says:

    At the risk of carping, isn’t that the absolutely dullest slipcase/box imaginable for this set? Clearly the design studio weren’t being paid by the hour for that one…

  3. bob says:

    Yes Metal Mickey you are right, very dull. Wasn’t there a Duran Duran box set/ slip case similar to this design a few years ago? Maybe on a singles box set? I certainly recognise that design from somewhere.

  4. Ian says:

    I’m sure the live disc is the same show as a well circulated bootleg that been doing the rounds for years – ?
