The House Of Love / 5-disc super deluxe

5CDs • 23 previously unreleased tracks • ‘Complete’ Creation recordings

A three-CD deluxe edition of The House of Love‘s debut album was reissued back in 2012 but now Cherry Red go two better by issuing a five-disc 30th anniversary set.

This new package is said to offer the band’s complete Creation recordings from 1987-1988, together with a raft of rarities and previously unissued bonus material – 84 tracks in total.

Apparently with no shame (!) the label state that “for the first time” the album is re-mastered from the original quarter-inch tapes. So why didn’t they do that in 2012!? To be fair perhaps they weren’t available, although I’m sure the phrase ‘original tapes’ was used to promote it back then, since the SDE post at the time makes reference to it and I wouldn’t have written that just for fun. Regardless, this new edition still looks like a good set and by my count 23 tracks are previously unreleased (lots of early mixes and demos).

The second and third CDs combine the non-album tracks with numerous demos and early mixes, CD 4 includes various BBC radio sessions for John Peel and the final disc delivers mostly unissued live tracks from various shows.

This 30th anniversary package comes as a hardcover book (sounds like it could be similar to Edsel’s recent 25th anniversary issue of Suede‘s debut) with fresh sleeve-notes from Neil Taylor. There will also be a limited edition 2LP vinyl set, which includes bonus tracks, issued at the same time.

The House of Love 30th anniversary edition will be released on 28 September 2018.
