I have this boxset, and it is an awesome collection for any Cult fans

The Cult's 1984 debut, DREAMTIME, proved to be an intriguing, if sometimes muddled, combination of early U2 and the Doors, topped off with Ian Astbury's ongoing lyrical fascination with Native American mythology. The immediate follow-up, LOVE, was a notable improvement. Ditching the most overt Doors references in favor of moody neo-psychedelia that sounds like a harder-rocking version of Echo & the Bunnymen, LOVE includes "She Sells Sanctuary" and "Rain". These driving singles introduced the UK band to the American college-radio market and laid the foundation for the group's mainstream commercial breakthrough later in the decade. The rest of the album is nearly up to the level of the singles, with Astbury's less-mannered vocals and Billy Duffy's powerful guitar riffs offering a much more assertive musical presence than ever before.

Designed to cater for the more committed fan, the Omnibus Edition is presented as a limited edition 4 disc box set with the CD's housed in Japanese-style paper sleeves, reproducing the original vinyl cover art. Along with the James Brown liner notes, the 48 page book features unseen contact sheets from the album photo session and a chronology of contemporaneous quotes by Ian Astbury and Billy Duffy that illuminate the status of the band at that point in their career.
DISC 1 - LOVE:
Re-mastered from the original studio analogue tapes.

DISC 2 - SINGLES:
Featuring all the tracks from the album's three 12" singles which included extended versions of album cuts, remixes and non-album `B' sides. This is the first time all these tracks have been presented together outside of the limited, Rare Cult box set released in 2000.

DISC 3 - DEMOS:
Ten tracks were recorded in early 1985 as demos to play to potential producers. Mostly performed live in the studio, these raw versions are an insight into the genesis of the album and have never been released before. Additionally there is a bonus of a rough monitor mix from Olympic Studios of `She Sells Sanctuary' before new vocals and a remix were completed at another studio.

DISC 4 - 1985 LIVE:
Recorded on the Love UK tour by the BBC on 31 October at Hammersmith Odeon, London, this thirteen song set featured songs from the newly released Love album alongside established favourites from their debut release Dreamtime and earlier Death Cult days.

Awesomeness Andy, top find as usual. Nearly ordered when u posted it on its release but now it's an absolute steal! :thumbsup:

Fantastic set. Absolutely essential for any Cult fan. The four discs are in replica vinyl sleeves, the main album one being a hard-cardboard gatefold. All with inner paper sleeves.

Great, thick book too.

OK you've talked me into it...

Mine arrived the other day (ordered ages ago from CD-WOW whose price now seems higher) but not listened to it. I'm assuming that disc with Love on is the same master as the last previous CD release. That recording sounded immense. Really crisp and powerful.

Saw them in Wolverhampton when they played there a few weeks ago - got to say that the band sounds better now than they did back in the day.

Hi
The "Love" CD sounds ace. They all do; even the "Live" one (which is saying something for The Cult. LOL. My fave is the 12" remix CD. Proper brings back some memories. I was a 12" remix addict in the 80's. It is a great boxset. Size of a fat DVD case. Enjoy.
