The Vibrators / The Epic Years 1976-78

vibrators_epicyears

Cherry Red will next month issue The Epic Years 1976-1978, a four-CD box set that marks the 40th anniversary of British punk band The Vibrators.

This collection includes all of The Vibrator’s recordings for Epic Records in that two year period, including sessions for the BBC. The band recorded two albums in their short tenure with the label – 1977 debut Pure Mania and V2, the 1978 follow-up. The first two discs in the box deliver this long-players, with both offering a few bonus tracks.

The third CD comprises three John Peel sessions recorded for the legendary John Peel show on BBC Radio along with the audio from an Old Grey Whistle Test appearance.

The box set closes with In Concert from the London Marquee – the full 19-track ‘raw’ mixing desk version of the show, not the overdubbed (and truncated) version.

Finally, the booklet within contains new sleeve notes by Shane Baldwin. The Epic Years 1976-1978 will be released on 31 March 2017.
