c86-reissue

Slicing Up Eyeballs reports that NME‘s celebrated C86 cassette compilation will receive a massive reissue treatment. UK label Cherry Red plan to release an expanded edition on June 9, which will spread 72-songs over three CDs. The original comp. was 22-tracks, so that’s 50 additional numbers, including four that were previously unreleased. New additions include the Jesus and Mary Chain, Brilliant Corners, Happy Mondays, and more. You can check out the complete tracklisting at the bottom of this post.

Official word is that “It’ll be housed in one of those ‘clamshell’-style hinged boxes, with a chunky booklet including a 11,500-word sleeve-note by Neil Taylor [the NME writer who helped put the original comp. together] and lots of pretty pictures.”
