Older / George Michael 3LP+5CD super deluxe

SDE Reader Rating

1.7

The reissue of George Michael’s 1996 album Older has been officially confirmed today.

The remastered album is being reissued on 2LP black vinyl with white and green vinyl exclusives available from Amazon UK and the indie community respectively.

The Older super deluxe includes 3LPs and five CDs (click image to enlarge)

Its also available on CD but, surprisingly, there is no CD-only deluxe, the sole box set is the 3LP+5CD super deluxe. That set has the following content:

  • Older 2LP vinyl
  • Upper vinyl LP
  • Older CD
  • Upper CD
  • Mixes One CD
  • Mixes Two CD
  • Mixes Three CD

Sony highlight one previously unreleased track – the 6.38 Jon Douglas Remix of ‘Spinning The Wheel’ – but this appears to be a mistake, since it was included on the ‘Dance Mixes’ CD of that third single. Aside from a smattering of promo-only radio edits, everything in the Older super deluxe box set was issued on the CD singles or vinyl 12-inches back in the day. The box set includes art prints and a 12”x12” 48 page book ‘The Story of Older’.

Older is finally back on vinyl. Amazon-exclusive 2LP white vinyl likely to prove popular

Older will be reissued on 16 September (was 12 August 2022 and before that was 8 July) via Sony Music. I’d encourage you to use the rating mechanism at the top of this page to give box set feedback to the label and let fellow fans know what you think.
