Little Steven has opened the doors on his personal archive of recordings to present an in-depth look at his solo career with a brand new boxed set. Rock’N’Roll Rebel – The Early Work (Wicked Cool/UMe) collects the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame member solo work from 1973-1999 – including Artists United Against Apartheid’s landmark 1985 LP, “Sun City” – together with 51 bonus tracks spanning previously unreleased demos, B-sides, rehearsals, outtakes, classic concert performances, and a number of never-before-heard Steven Van Zandt compositions.“It’s been a blast going through the archives and finding all these hidden gems,” says Van Zandt. “In addition to demos in various stages of completion, there are entire songs I’d completely forgotten about, and we found some really early things pre-Jukes like Southside Johnny and the Kid (the kid being me!). I’m excited for the fans to hear all of this stuff and to have my albums back on vinyl for the first time in decades!

Limited to just 1,000 copies, the bespoke slipcase multi-format boxed set includes remastered editions of six long-out-of-print classic albums – Men Without Women (1982), Voice Of America (1983), Sun City (1985), Freedom – No Compromise (1987), Revolution (1989) and Born Again Savage (1999) – across seven-colored vinyl LPs alongside four CDs of rarities and bonus tracks.
