I was glad to finally see X still in top form over the summer at the Pacific Amphitheatre (see B-52's review on this blog). Those of you needing to fill out your digital catalog should see below...
Rhino just released a new digital boxed set titled The X Collection: 1980-1987, which compiles the first six studio albums from the legendary LA punk band.
Deluxe versions of their classic albums Los Angeles, Under The Big Black Sun, and Wild Gift are also available digitally for the first time.
All were released on CD in the early 2000s but have never hit the digital domain. Standard and deluxe versions of their albums More Fun In The Real World and Ain’t Love Grand make their digital debut as well as Live At The Whisky A Go-Go and the 1995 album from The John Doe Thing, Kissingsohard.
