Cold Chisel releases box set – of Vinyls!

Cold Chisel describe this one as “one for the true believers”, but without question for fans of the legendary Aussie group this is a sensational limited edition opportunity.   Every studio album plus rare and never released material – on Vinyl.

The strictly limited edition Vinyl Box Set will be released on Friday April 10 and includes all seven studio LP’s, which includes two that were never released on Vinyl (The Last Wave of Summer and No Plans).

In addition, there are three other collectibles – Teenage Love – also never released on Vinyl and released in this box set with six other songs that have never been released in any physical format!

Plus there’s the live EP “Your Thirteen, Your Beautiful and You’re Mine” which was first released in 1979.

Alongside all that is a “repressing” of the 7-inch single “Knockin on Heaven’s Door/The Party’s Over” .

Chisel’s long time mastering engineer Don Bartley is the man behind the re-mastering for this vinyl press, using the original analogue tapes.  This should be something special.

“This project has been in development for 18 months and we are really excited to finally reveal it,” says Cold Chisel guitarist Ian Moss. “When we started out in Adelaide all those years ago, vinyl was the main format for all of our releases. It’s great to have Cold Chisel’s entire studio catalogue available on vinyl and all of it gathered together in this one cool box.”

“I still love listening to music on vinyl,” said the band’s frontman Jimmy Barnes, “so I’m really proud to have all of our work restored and pressed on big, thick state-of-the-art vinyl. This is going straight to the pool room.”

    Trevor, you’re supposed to be a journalist, right? As such we like to think you are sufficiently educated and have a strong command of the English language. They were probably right when they said the internet has allowed every man and his dog to be a “publisher” or a “writer” so perhaps my expectations are unfounded. Apologies for that.

      No Mikey – Where do I claim to be a journalist? I think what’s at issue here is your ability to grasp the serious nature of these comments – mate – TAKE A CHILL PILL… breathe…
