Massive box set delivers hits, albums, rarities and more

Edsel are to release Sophisticated Boom Box MMXVI a giant career-spanning 19-disc box set featuring British pop group Dead or Alive.

Curated by frontman Pete Burns and drummer/keyboard player Steve Coy, the set comprises eight albums, three of which (Fan The Flame (Part 1)Nukleopatra and Fragile) receive their UK debut release via this set (with new cover art).

The first four albums issued in the 1980s all feature here as two-CD sets, except 1985's Stock Aitken Waterman produced Youthquake (which spawned the mega-hit You Spin Me Round (Like A Record) - which is a three-disc package.

In fact, it also contains 12 previously unreleased remixes and tracks from the band's vaults. 1987 greatest hits album Rip It Up is also present and correct (as a two-CD set)

Depeche Mode are to issue Video Singles Collection, in November, a first-ever career-spanning anthology of promo videos and short films.

The three-DVD package is being issued by Sony (they acquired the rights to the band's catalogue in July last year) and spans the years 1981-2013. It features more than four hours of newly restored music videos and over two hours of new audio commentary on specific individual clips, recorded by members of Depeche Mode especially for this release.

The band have worked with some ground-breaking directors over the years, including Julien Temple, Anton Corbijn, D.A. Pennebaker, John Hillcoat and others.

"It's been amazing to go back and relive all the experiences and memories these videos evoke after all these years", the band are quoted as saying, adding, "It's incredible to have all our videos finally together in one place and we're hoping our fans enjoy this journey through time as much as we did."

Excitingly for fans, Video Singles Collection is the first in "a series of band-approved retrospective projects" so we wait with anticipation to see what will follow. 

Video Singles Collection is released on 11 November 2016.

The Human League / A Very British Synthesizer Group box set

Career-spanning anthology includes a DVD & CD of rarities

A Very British Synthesizer Group: The Anthology is a new four-disc super deluxe overview of Sheffield's electronic pioneers The Human League.

With almost 40 year of activity under their belt, this new collection seems well balanced with the first disc two discs containing largely original single versions of all their 45s, from 1978's non-album debut Being Boiled to the radio edit of Sky (taken from 2011's Credo).

The third CD is packed with previously unreleased early versions of 17 songs, and the DVD which completes this set is crammed full with promo videos and, more interestingly, twenty-one their appearances on the BBC, including rare early appearances of the Oakey/Marsh/Ware line-up on BBC 2's Mainstream and on Top of the Pops (promoting the Holiday 80 EP).

The four-disc super deluxe will come with a 58-page book with a new essay by David Buckley and a cut-down two-CD edition (featuring just the singles) will be available, along with a half-speed remastered triple-LP vinyl edition (containing the tracks on the two-CD set). The vinyl comes with a download code.
