Exciting news all, to celebrate the 25th anniversary of ‘Olympian’, Demon Music Group will be releasing an 8LP deluxe edition vinyl box set on the 14th August.

Nineties British group Gene see all their albums reissued in a limited 8LP coloured vinyl box set – with signed print – and via a nine-CD box set, which includes an extensive amount of bonus material.
The vinyl package features all four studio albums – Olympian (1995), Drawn To The Deep End (1997), Revelations (1999) and Libertine (2001). It also features the 1996 compilation To See The Lights. Three out of those five are double albums, so that gives us an 8LP vinyl set.

These sets are limited to 1000 units and come with a 12″ x 12″ print signed by the band. It also includes a booklet with notes written by each band member and a piece by journalist Keith Cameron, who signed the band to his Costermonger label back in 1994.

The albums are pressed on coloured vinyl and the colours are as follows: Olympian (white), Drawn To The Deep End (maroon), Revelations (green), Libertine (pink) and To See The Lights (gold).

The nine-CD box set offers all of the above and adds bonus CDs for the following albums: Drawn To The Deep End, Revelations and Libertine. Live album Rising For Sunset (due to be issued on yellow vinyl for Record Store Day this year) is the ninth and final disc in the CD box. The bonus material replicates most of the content from the 2014 individual deluxe CD editions, but not quite everything. For example, the Revelations-era BBC ‘Live In Concert’ is notable by its absence. Like the vinyl set, this CD box comes with the booklet with notes.
