YELLO / YELL40 Years retrospective

Deluxe 4CD set • 2LP vinyl • 2CD

Electronic duo YELLO are celebrating their 40th anniversary with, YELL40 Years, a new retrospective issued across three physical formats.

This release will be available as a 4CD deluxe set, across two vinyl records and as a 2CD edition. The first two CDs offer a traditional ‘best of’ split into ‘first’ and ‘second’ 20 year periods. On the deluxe, the third disc offers ‘Mellow YELLO’ focusing on their more melodic, cinematic side and includes some hidden gems and collaborations like ‘The Rhythm Divine (feat. Shirley Bassey)’. The fourth disc in the deluxe is some of Dieter Meier and Boris Blank’s favourite YELLO remixes along with some previously unreleased re-workings such as Mark Reeder’s ‘Wet & Hard Mix’ of ‘Vicious Games’.

Surprisingly, not only does the brilliant 13 minute version of The Race not feature anywhere in this retrospective, there is no studio version at all, just a ‘live in Berlin’ variant from 2016. Bizarre.

The four-CD deluxe version is a 60-page hardcover book (apparently ‘strictly limited’) and contains exclusive and brand-new liner notes for every YELLO album released, including rare and never-before-seen photos. The deluxe features 71 tracks, the 2CD set offers 41 tracks and the 2LP vinyl includes a reduced 21 songs.

YELLO 40 Years will be released on 30 April 2021.
