Janes Addiction - Sterling
Vew Vinyl Record - Janes Addiction, Sterling
Limited six 180gm vinyl LP box set from the alt-rock band includes their albums Nothing's Shocking (1LP) and Ritual de lo Habitual (2LP) plus vinyl debuts of Live From The Palladium (1990) (2LP) and Selections from Kettle Whistle (demos and rarities) (1LP). The band has had a hand in the box set's creative direction, selecting Ernesto Yerena to produce the striking box set cover art. Long before Lollapalooza became a household word and alternative rock took over MTV in the '90s, there was Jane's Addiction's eclectic mix of psychedelia, performance art, heavy metal and boundary-expanding experimentation. This box set, celebrating the 25th anniversary of Lollapalooza (originally intended as the band's farewell tour in 1991), brings those now classics of alt-rock back to 180-gram vinyl while the rest of the set debuts a wealth of the band's material on wax that was previously only available on CD.
