Go-Betweens limited edition box set

The Domino Recording Company has announced the upcoming release of an anthology for  Australia's The Go-Betweens.
G Stands For Go-Betweens: Volume One extensively documents the band's origins in a box containing four vinyl albums, four CDs and a 112-page book featuring archival photos and historical liner notes from founding member Robert Forster, along with additional pieces from guest essayists, fans and contemporaries.

The box set captures the band's output from 1978-1984 and includes the first vinyl re-pressings of their first three studio albums in over 30 years (Send Me A Lullaby, Before Hollywood, Spring Hill Fair), all re-mastered from the original analogue tapes.
It also brings together their early classic and collectible singles together on a fourth vinyl LP entitled The First Five Singles featuring new artwork from its creators. Additionally, the set comes with four CDs of rare, hard-to-find and unreleased demos, recordings, radio sessions and a complete live concert radio broadcast from 1982.
There's a silkscreen of their first promotional poster for their debut single, Lee Remick," as well as a reproduction of their very first press release from their own Able Label.

Pre-orders for this limited edition release will go until Oct. 31. While a very small overrun may be made available to a few select retail outlets at a later date, this is a deluxe limited package and we will only be pressing this very special collection once. The only way to guarantee your own copy is to order from Domino Mart HERE. The stock is estimated to be delivered to customers at the beginning of January.

The first 600 orders will get a randomly selected book from the late Grant McLennan's personal literary collection along with a specially-printed bookmark signed by Robert Forster, certifying their veracity.
These books were collected by Grant through his lifetime and some were signed and dated by him on purchase (though no guarantee that every book will have said will be the luck of the draw). Recipients will be invited to join the Grant McLennan Book Club over at to share anecdotes and book reports on the copies they receive.
