aa_sde

Sony Music/Legacy Recordings will issue a lavish four-disc super deluxe edition box set of Adam and the Ants‘ classic 1980 album, Kings Of The Wild Frontier, in May.

Packaged in a large format high-gloss gold box this super deluxe set has been “curated and remastered” by Adam Ant and contains two CDs of audio including the original album, B-sides, previously unreleased studio demos/rough cuts and rare and unissued live recordings. A DVD (NTSC, all regions) delivers promo videos, BBC TV appearances, Adam & The Ants Live In Tokyo 1981 (in its entirety) and a short promotional video ‘Ant Invasion’ – a mini documentary of the first Adam & The Ants US tour in 1981.

Exclusive to the super deluxe edition box is a 180g gold vinyl LP of the newly remastered Kings of the Wild Frontier.

As well as the above audio, the box set contains an enormous amount of additional content in the form of facsimile memorabilia such as replica original release Ant Catalogue, ‘antwarrior’ membership card, prints, posters, photos, press ads, ‘antclub’ membership forms and a 36-page perfect-bound 12″x12″ ‘The Story of the Album’ booklet, including detailed liner notes and track annotations written by Adam Ant.

A two-CD deluxe will also be available (repeating the content from the CDs in the box set) as well as black vinyl LP edition (which includes the replica Ant Catalogue).

Kings of the Wild Frontier is reissued on 20 May 2016.
