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.
Re-mastered from the original studio analogue tapes.

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.

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.

As played in the Walford square cafe tonight....
Phoenix - one of the best :thumbsup:
lmao She Sells Sanctuary is on every disc, and twice on disc 2 :w00t:
Great band and a bargain price, voted hot :)
Looks like the price has gone up. Now, £14.97 and the code brings it down to £12.72.

Still a decent price. I was at the Hammersmith Odeon concert on disc 4, too.

10% Quidco should work, too.
Hot deal, shame the band sold out to American rock.
Hot deal, shame the band sold out to American rock.

Maybe so, but this album switched me onto them so hot, hot, hot

Had to pay £12.72 even with the voucher code - better than paying full price for it though.....

Seems TescoEnt have raised the price of practically every CD they sell.
