From Facebook, Jan 2011:

"We are working on catholics set now, which will include remastering albums from the old 1/4" tapes. the set will include all the b-sides and cool outtakes we can dig up and hope to release it on vinyl as well later this year."

Sounds promising...

I just love every song on Doolittle and I figure they're all designated "classics" these days, so my sense of humor could not detect what was happening there.
The Maharal Posted - 07/17/2022 : 12:34:25
I thought that was quite obvious. Though I'd be more inclined to play La La Love You more than Monkey these days.
Troubles A Foot Posted - 07/17/2022 : 11:18:29
"Nostalgia obscures the fact that classic bangers such as 'La La Love You' were separated by only a couple of tracks from throwaway nuggets like 'Monkey Gone To Heaven'."

Is this a joke?

The records sound great and the box set is very nicely put together! I appreciated the context given by the writings in the book. Mainly it's just fantastic to have all these albums on vinyl now. Very happy with it.

The photo's are mostly the DITS-promo stuff.

Very nice but no Dave Philips on them.

How are the liner notes?
The Maharal Posted - 07/15/2022 : 05:10:36

Interesting article.
Discoking Posted - 07/14/2022 : 11:47:12
i also received the box set today.

Just got the box set, it's lean and mean. As are the liner notes. In the credits is listed a (new to me) URL - I searched the forum but couldn't find it, so I'll paste it here: https://blackfranc.is/

Plus just one more

And another

Vinyl box set is getting some reviews, haven't seen much in the big music press but decent review here

Stevio10 Posted - 04/19/2022 : 08:08:47
Was reading an old Frank interview from DITS era, link below. Strange how things have changed in 20 years but some things stay the same. Nice point from the author who says 'you can only tear down a wall once' when contemplating why FB solo wasn't as revered as the Pixies. It's like reading about Pixies now compared to the first run.

Discoking Posted - 04/14/2022 : 02:23:26
yes, i was surprised how much cheaper fnac was.
i got a good deal on the "live in brixton" box sets too. best i could find (in the EU, that is).

it won't stay that cheap. the 10% off will come and go.
and i expect the price to go way up at some point (around release date?). brixton is a lot more expensive now too.

billgoodman Posted - 04/14/2022 : 01:31:25
Fnac has a very good price
Dutch stores have at least 100 euro's on top of that

Guess that one will be released if this box is a succes

Brank_Flack Posted - 04/01/2022 : 10:36:06
I'm a vinyl fan so consider me intrigued, particularly since the records were recorded in analogue. It would have been nice to see One More Road for the Hit included.

Yeah same here. I don't listen to records. Interested in that book.
billgoodman Posted - 04/01/2022 : 00:00:39
Yeah, I want that book! But the vinyl....no, not for me.
I would buy a b-sides and outtakes and live record on vinyl. Instantly.

FB&C vinyl box set
On 8th July Demon release Frank Black and The Catholics - The Complete Studio Albums box set. This superb box set includes 3 albums never before available on vinyl.

Between 1998 and 2003, Frank Black and co. released six albums under the ‘Frank Black And The Catholics’ moniker. All recorded live and direct to two track tape, the albums are some of the most energised, raw, and essential of Frank Black’s career.

For almost two decades, the Catholics’ studio albums have been out of print or unavailable on vinyl. Now, Demon Records is proud to present ‘The Complete Studio Albums’ boxset featuring all six original releases expertly remastered from the original studio tapes and pressed on heavyweight 180g clear vinyl.

Includes all six studio albums – ‘Frank Black And The Catholics’ (1998), ‘Pistolero’ (1999), ‘Dog In The Sand’ (2001) [first time on vinyl], ‘Black Letter Days’ (2002) [2LP, first time on vinyl] ‘Devil’s Workshop’ (2002) [first time on vinyl], and ‘Show Me Your Tears’ (2003).

Each album is pressed on 180g clear vinyl and housed in printed inner sleeves along with outer sleeves featuring spot gloss detailing. All 80 tracks have been newly remastered from the original studio tapes by Phil Kinrade at Alchemy Mastering at AIR.

The albums are housed together in a rigid outer sleeve and accompanied by a 32 page booklet featuring new liner notes by Catholics producer / engineer Ben Mumphrey plus unseen and rare photographs by Steve Gullick.

There aren't a whole lot of vinyl pressing plants and they're very busy and tend get to backed up, particularly in the past year because of pandemic restrictions. If you want a record pressed you have to reserve a place months in advance of your projected release date. So pressing on demand isn't a thing.

So labels make a certain number up front and then if those sell fast and the band is hot, they MIGHT do a second pressing.
Bedbug Posted - 03/14/2022 : 08:25:38
Are these pressed on demand or do they make a certain number of them up front?
Jason Posted - 03/13/2022 : 11:07:16
The Catholics albums were recorded on old school analog tape and the pictures posted are just images of those 20+-year-old boxes of the old reels with the song (and take number) contained therein written on them. I would read literally nothing into the "tracklists". That's just a description of what's in the box.

My takeaway from those images is that they're going straight to the original tapes to remaster the Catholics albums for reissue.
Brank_Flack Posted - 03/13/2022 : 09:57:21
Interesting - not quite sure what's going on with those tracklists... is he re-sequencing the albums, or maybe the recordings are being presented in strictly chronological order?
Jason Posted - 03/12/2022 : 07:53:11
Clearly some vinyl configuration of the Catholics stuff is coming out. I think they've re-pressed most everything else. The Catholics are all that's left. Frank owns those records himself so there's no fuss when it comes to rights.

It will be interesting to see if the two Catholics B-sides collections get physical releases. They were iTunes only back in the day (and then of course later dropped into the CD box set's alphabetical presentation).
matto Posted - 03/11/2022 : 07:24:41
Per some FB posts, it looks like something FB&Cs is coming out...

maybe the vinyl box set?

Discoking Posted - 01/03/2022 : 10:18:42

a bit weird, since this came out not too long ago:

this could've been a promo campaign for that release.
