Nik Kershaw / Collected Vinyl

Collected is a new vinyl compilation featuring the best of Nik Kershaw. It features songs from all nine of Kershaw’s studio albums including his most recent, 2020’s Oxymoron and this initial pressing features a bonus LP of 12-inch mixes. Sold out on the SDE shop, grab one if you see one elsewhere since this one-time 3LP pressing (of 1000 units) is also sold out at the distributors, and therefore effectively out-of-print.
