Cherry Red Records will follow up this year’s Manchester-centric box set with one that examines the legacy of Liverpool’s scene from 1976 to 1988, a 5-disc, 100-song collection that will feature music by Echo & The Bunnmen, The Teardrop Explodes, Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, A Flock of Seagulls, The Wild Swans, Icicle Works, The La’s and more.

The box set — titled Revolutionary Spirit: The Sound of Liverpool 1976-1988 — is due out in January, and though a full tracklist won’t be revealed until next month, the Facebook page for the collection does include a disc-by-disc list of the featured artists, which you can peruse below.

The label promises the set will include “familiar names, key tracks, unreleased material, demos, rare and obscure releases, artist sleevenotes and unseen imagery.”

It follows this year’s release of the 7-disc Manchester North of England box set, which brought together songs from Joy Divison, New Order, The Stone Roses, Morrissey, The Fall and Oasis from 1977 to 1993.
