C86: deluxe!


Tre anni fa, in occasione dei 25 anni, analizzavamo la situazione delle band protagoniste (leggi). Oggi la sempre attenta Cherry Red Records celebra il documento storico C86 con un’edizione deluxe in 3 CD. 72 brani, per alcuni è la prima volta su supporto ottico, altri (4) sono inediti. La ristampa sarà fuori il 9 giugno e: “will be housed in a clamshell-style hinged box, with what the label describes as a “chunky” booklet featuring an 11,500-word set of sleevenotes by Neil Taylor, one of three writers at the U.K. music weekly who compiled the original tape”.
