G Stands for Go-Betweens: The Go-Betweens Anthology volume 2 box set


This December, Domino follow up G-Stands for Go-Betweens – their 2015 box set devoted to Australian indie band The Go-Betweens – with a second box, G Stands For Go-Betweens: The Go-Betweens Anthology Volume 2.

The first box – long out-of-print, and now very expensive to get hold of – covered the era 1978 to 1984 and this new set, as you might expect, picks up where that earlier volume left off, with an examination of the period 1985-1989 which closed the chapter on the original version of the band (Robert Forster and Grant McLennan reformed The Go-Betweens in 2000 with a new line-up).



It contains the three studio albums released during this era on vinyl LP – Liberty Belle and the Black Diamond Express (1986), Tallulah (1987) and 16 Lovers Lane (1988) – and adds a previously unreleased double live album, called Fountains of Youth, recorded in London on 10 May 1987.

But as before, this is a real multi-media package and more music comes in the form of five CDs, which feature not only rare, hard-to-find and unreleased demos, recordings, radio sessions but also a collection of 28 songs intended for what was supposed to be the follow-up to 16 Lovers Lane.



This Volume two package comes with a 112-page book with all the usual historical photos and extensive sleeve notes (from founding member Robert Forster) and a Liberty Belle And The Black Diamond Express songbook. This was apparently prepared at the time of release by their publisher, but never actually produced. So this is the first ever printing, containing hand-transcribed sheet music of all ten songs from that album. The box set – a big lift-off lid affair – also comes with a reproduction promotional poster.

G Stands For Go-Betweens: The Go-Betweens Anthology Volume 2 will be released on 6 December 2019.
