Aztec Camera / Backwards and Forwards: The WEA Recordings 1984-1995

9CD box set with bonus material

Backwards and Forwards: The WEA Recordings 1984-1995 is a forthcoming nine-CD box set that collects the music of Aztec Camera via five studio albums, B-sides, live recordings, remixes and rarities.

The box set includes all five studio albums issued on WEA: Knife (1984, Love (1987), Stray (1990), Dreamland (1993) and Frestonia (1995). The only other Aztec Camera album – which is not included in this set – is the band’s 1983 debut High Land, Hard Rain (which was released on Rough Trade).

Each album on CD comes with bonus tracks, but on top of that are two further discs collecting remixes, B-sides and extra tracks. Additional CDs, In Concert 1984 and Live at Ronnie Scott’s complete this nine-disc collection. There are 112 tracks in total.

Demon Music previously released ‘casebound book’ deluxe editions of all six of the band’s albums back in 2012. The track listings for those can be found on the original SDE post.

Backwards and Forwards: The WEA Recordings 1984-1995 is being released by Cherry Red. There is no word on remastering. It is out on 27 August 2021.
