The Verve / A Storm in Heaven and A Northern Soul super deluxe box sets

Super Deluxe Edition box sets for the first two albums

The Verve‘s first two albums, 1993’s A Storm in Heaven and A Northern Soul from 1995 will both be reissued by Virgin/EMI in September as multi-disc super deluxe edition box sets…

Both albums are remastered by Chris Potter (co-producer of the band’s Urban Hymns) and both of the new box sets feature previously unreleased studio recordings, BBC sessions and various B-sides / extra tracks from the singles of the era.

The super deluxe of A Storm in Heaven is a 3CD+DVD set and includes all the pre-album E.P. tracks, associated B-sides and acoustic versions, as well as two previously unreleased BBC radio sessions and two unreleased studio tracks – South Pacific and Shoeshine Girl.

The DVD features a 1992 Camden Town Hall concert, the USA promo video for Blue, unseen footage of the band in New York in October 1992 and a video for the unreleased South Pacific, made up from footage of the Sawmills recording sessions as captured by producer John Leckie.

The super deluxe for A Northern Soul is ‘just’ a three-CD set with the audio content following a similar pattern to the aforementioned Storm in Heaven set. So it includes of all associated B-sides and two previously unreleased BBC radio sessions as well as offering an impressive seven unreleased studio tracks, including early versions of The Rolling People and Come On (later re-recorded for Urban Hymns) as well as Mover and Muhammad Ali (both of which would be revisited for the band’s 2008 reunion album, Forth).

Both of the super deluxe editions are in lift-off-lid boxes (presumably like Tears For Fears/Simple Minds) and contain posters and postcards. The booklets feature interviews with the band (but not Ashcroft). The Northern Soul box is covered with silver ‘mirri’ board as per the original 2LP vinyl

Both of these will be issued on 9 September 2016 along with gatefold vinyl editions.
