Perry Farrell / The Glitz; The Glamour

Solo work box sets from the Jane’s Addiction frontman

The Glitz; The Glamour is a new box set – available on CD and on vinyl – featuring the solo work of Perry Farrell.

The American singer-songwriter and musician is best known as the frontman for the alternative rock band Jane’s Addiction, but this new 68-track box set is not concerned with that and concentrates on extra-curricular activities such as Farrell’s early years with post-punk collective Psi Com, 2001 debut solo album Songs Yet to be Sung; Ultra Payloaded, the one and only album from the short-lived band Satellite Party, the fairly recent Kind Heaven (a Farrell solo album from 2019) and a disc of remixes by UNKLE, Maceo Plex, Groove Armada, and more.

All that is covered by six CDs (or nine LPs in the coloured vinyl box) but The Glitz; The Glamour also comes with a blu-ray featuring a Dolby Atmos surround mix of the Kind Heaven record along with three new Atmos-mixed tracks from the remix record.

As well as the audio discs, the box set comes with a hardcover photographic book, two prints and more.

The 6CD+blu-ray edition of the box set is widely available, but – in theory – the 9LP+blu-ray version is more exclusive and is only available via independent record shops. All the vinyl in that box is half-speed mastered.

The Glitz; The Glamour will be released on 27 November 2020.

    The satellite party album is, excellent

    One thing I’m confused by……… the main image, the one at the top of the page, doesn’t seem to be the actual cover art. It also doesn’t appear in any of the photos showing the contents of the box. I guess that’s just a promotional image?

    As long as I’m on a tangent, I love coming to this site and reading about even the artists I know/care little about. I think it’s interesting how artists package their history for posterity, and how they’ve come to be viewed over the years. And the write-ups are sometimes really witty in a way that I rarely find in American writing.

  3. Charles Christopher says:

    I’ll say this…… it’s beautifully packaged!
    Considering the love shown on this forum to all kinds of marginal artists, I’m really surprised by all the negativity directed to Farrell – but maybe I shouldn’t be, because I’m really not a fan outside of Jane’s and share the general opinions here.

  4. Dad says:

    Still love both Jane’s and Pyros, but have to agree that Song Yet To Be Sung would be my only solo album recommendation outside those bands. Song Yet To Sung is a nice cohesive album and feels massively overlooked for some reason, possibly as it came out so close to 9-11.
    I’ve purchased all his solo material, it’s all really hit and miss after that. Each album just feels like a random collection of songs rather than an album proper. A best of Perry Farrell down the line might be cool for those on the fence but I’d skip this collection unless you’re already a massive fan.

    I saw Porno For Pyros at Reading years ago and he was a complete asshole. Caught an early train home after leaving the show, the album went to the charity shop (didn’t think it was that great anyway) and I vowed not to give him any more of my hard earned. Nob!

  6. Jonathan Shapiro says:

    The only thing worth having here is the Psi Com record. His enter post-Good God’s Urge output is excruciatingly bad

  7. Andy Haines says:

    £200 for the vinyl box. Sorry Perry. I won’t be partaking in this purchase. It may be something that ends up severely reduced, but I think they have a bigger following in the US so they may sell out.

  8. Pete says:

    Hey Paul. The Grateful dead are releasing their album American beauty in a 50th anniversary edition this friday. Just thought you should know in case you want to post a story about it for your readers

  9. Trapdoor says:

    Perry’s solo work unfortunately resembles Prince without the NPG and the tunes.

    • Johnny Spasm says:

      Are you out of your mind? Farrell’s best work shouldn’t be mentioned in the same conversation as Prince’s early solo work & his music with the Revolution.

  10. Richard says:

    I did love Janes Addiction and am interested in hearing the early psi com material but as the others said pretty much everything he has done post 1991 has been lamentable and he is now the epitome of a vapid LA rock star, his recent live stream reunion of Porno For Pyros was cringeworthy.

  11. Johnny Spasm says:

    Not much of a Jane’s fan, and that’s his best work.

  12. Michael Bird says:

    Psi Com (Not a solo project) and Song Yet to Be Sung are the only component parts of this worth bothering with. Everything else is cringe-inducing bad. Outside of a group dynamic, with all players are on equal footing, Farrell’s work consistently devolves into very boring, very tedious vanity projects.
