I've seen True Blue listed on a few online vinyl stores - looks like it is going to be released on Nov 24 from Demon Records.

I didn't buy the original Catholics boxset. How is the record? How does it hold up in comparison to BLD? Is it different enough to warrant a purchase?

This is a no brainer! Although I can't remember listening to those songs

With a bonus 7 inch, nice!

True Blue' is a collection of songs originally intended as technical demos for the Catholics' acclaimed
'Black Letter Days' album. Recorded in 2001, live to 1-track tape at the legendary Sound City Studios,
the recordings capture raw and captivating performances by Frank Black and the Catholics on songs
including 'California Bound', 'The End Of Miles', and 'Cold Heart Of Stone'.
Previously only available as a bonus CD in 'The Complete Recordings' boxset, 'True Blue' is an
essential release for Frank Black fans and offers a glimpse into a studio session with the Catholics.
Pressed on 140g vinyl, newly remastered by Phil Kinrade and cut by Cicely Balston at AIR Mastering.
Presented in a textured reverse board sleeve with new artwork by Mark Reynolds, and exclusive liner
notes by producer Ben Mumphrey.
Also included is a bonus 7" single featuring three studio outtakes, including a previously unreleased
version of 'The Black Rider'.

There's a version of The Farewell Bend that's just mindblowing. Frank on guitar, Tommy Stinson on bass, Nick Vincent on drums, Eric Schermerhorn on slide guitar. So yeah, don't hesitate.

Completely different, they're demos. Full credits here: https://www.discogs.com/release/6977251-Frank-Black-And-The-Catholics-The-Complete-Recordings

Also: California Bound has Lyle Workman on lead guitar and his solo is worth the price of the record itself.
