Thin Lizzy and Motorhead are the latest in a long line of artists to have a selection of some of their best albums collected together in a great value box set.
The Thin Lizzy Classic Album Selection box from Mercury Records contains Nightlife, Fighting, Bad Reputation, Johnny The Fox and Black Rose. Sanctuary Records have collected the following Motorhead albums in their box; Overkill, Bomber, Ace Of Spades, Iron Fist, Another Perfect Day and the live album No Sleep ‘Til Hammersmith.
Unlike some other budget album box sets these sets come in well designed sturdy outer boxes, and the CDs are housed in stylish, bespoke gate-fold replica wallets with original artwork. The slightly higher price reflects the quality of the product, but these are still available for well under £20.
Despite the excellent packaging, this is ultimately still a ‘no frills’ budget release. There are no bonus tracks and none of the albums in question have any credits, lyrics or information about the recordings. However, with each song in the 56-track Thin Lizzy box costing less than 35p this is still cheaper than downloading from iTunes and you get the audio in full CD quality, rather than a lossy download format. The Motorhead box is even better value containing 62 tracks.
