Motörhead / Ace of Spades box set

40th anniversary edition • Box Set • 3LP • 2CD

Motörhead‘s 1980 album, Ace of Spades, is being reissued in October as a vinyl-heavy 7LP+10″+DVD box set that offers a remastered album, live performances and rarities as well as a 5.1 mix of the album.

The box set features the following:

  • The Ace Of Spades album on vinyl, half-speed mastered and created from the original master tapes.
  • Two double-live albums of previously unheard concerts from the Ace Up Your Sleeve tour.
  • A Fistful Of Instrumentals : A 10” EP of previously unreleased, instrumental tracks from 1980.
  • The Good, The Broke & The Ugly. A double album of B-sides, outtakes and rare tracks.
  • Ace On Your Screens: A DVD compilation of rare TV appearances from 1980-81, a live concert from 1981 and a 5.1 audio mix of the original album.

In addition to all that is ‘stuff’, including:

  • The Ace Of Spades story. A 40 page book telling the story of Ace Of Spades through previously unpublished interviews with the people that were there. Includes never before seen photos and memorabilia.
  • Reproduction Ace Up Your Sleeve tour programme
  • Reproduction Motörhead Rock Commando comic.
  • A set of 5 poker dice that can be played on the game board inside the box set lid.

There are no detailed track listings at this time but the label say this set features 42 previously unreleased tracks. The two live albums are Live at Whitla Hall, Belfast 23/12/1981 (a 17 song, soundboard recording from the Ace Up Your Sleeve tour) and Live at Parc Expo, Orleans 05/03/81 (an 18 song, soundboard recording from the same tour.) The former is added to the remastered album for new 3LP and 2CD sets.

The 3LP and 2CD sets look well presented, coming in book-style packaging and the vinyl features the same half-speed master that’s in the big box.

All three physical editions of Ace of Spades are released on 30 October 2020. The Germany box set pre-order price is looking very good at this moment in time.
