Music Club Deluxe U.K. Preps Double-Disc Compilations for Redding, Cross, Foreigner

with 4 comments

Music Club Deluxe, part of the U.K.’s Demon Music Group, has prepped a trio of new budget-minded, double-disc sets for a few legendary artists.

While there’s nothing new on the forthcoming compilations by dearly departed soul legend Otis Redding, soft-rock maestro Christopher Cross and platinum-selling hard rock band Foreigner (and only one general rarity among any of the three – a non-LP B-side closing out the Foreigner set), their two-disc running times and decent price tag might be of interest to first-time fans in British record shops.

Each set hits England on June 20 and a week later as U.S. imports. Hit the jump for order links and discographical information!

  1. Foreigner’s “Street Thunder” has appeared on Rhino’s “Jukebox Heroes” compilation, and was included on “The Music Of The IIXXXrd Olympiad Los Angeles 1984″. It was the theme song for the running events.

  2. The Music Club Deluxe sets are a mixed bag. I got The Farm 2-CD set they put out a couple years ago, and while it actually contained a few previously unreleased tracks and remixes (which were welcome), it also duplicated one song (Disc 1 was supposed to include the 7″ version of “Love See No Colour” and Disc 2 claimed to have the album mix, but BOTH discs contained the identical single mix).

    Still, these sets are a pretty cheap way to get an overview of an artist’s career.

    • I think the Christopher Cross set does the same thing – there’s a duplicate of “Words of Wisdom” on both sets. Particularly infuriating considering nearly all of Cross’ WB albums are replicated therein. Couldn’t they have licensed another track to make it more complete?

  3. I am SO buying the Christopher Cross. Minstrel Gigolo is my jam.
