Sex Pistols / 76/77 4CD box set

76/77 is a new four-CD box set featuring recordings of the Sex Pistols before the release of Never Mind The Bollocks, Here’s The Sex Pistols in 1977.

The set features 80 alternate versions of tracks recorded between May 1976 and Sept 1977 and while most of these have been issued on various previous collections, the record label have still found eight previously unreleased versions.

The band formed in the summer of 1975 but it would be some 10 months before they first ventured into a recording studio with Chris Spedding, on May 15th 1976 at Majestic in London. Later that summer they’d record first at Decibel and then at Riverside with Dave Goodman and subsequently at Landsdown and Wessex later that October.

All these early recording sessions are included on 76/77, along with the EMI sessions at their Manchester Square studio. EMI dropped them, of course, in January 1977 and further sessions with Dave Goodman at Eden and Gooseberry studios. Around this time Glen Matlock left to be replaced by Sid Vicious. Recording sessions continued after the A&M signing/dropping of the band in March the same year and the in May Virgin finally signed the Sex Pistols.

There was plenty more recording in August and September of 1977 leading up to the release of Never Mind The Bollocks... which eventually came out in October 1977.

The 76/77 four-CD box set is released on 24 September 2021. SDE Members can ‘rate this release’ at the top of the page.
