“Enough to make most God-fearing rock’n’rollers believe in miracles” – Record Collector
The Box Set, which includes previously unreleased material, is now available as a 6CD set (plus one bonus disc). As well as all the tracks from “Frank Black and the Catholics”, “Pistolero”, “Dog In The Sand”, “Black Letter Days”, “Devil’s Workshop” and “Show Me Your Tears”, this collection marks the first commercial release of the tracks from 2000’s “Sunday Sunny Mill Valley Groove Day”. Also included is a 7th bonus disk which includes songs from “True Blue” an album of alternate versions of songs from “Black Letter Days”.
In Frank’s own words…. “This is a boxset including all of the Frank Black and the Catholics material that was recorded, there’s bonus material and technical demos and it’s all recorded live to 2-track, as was our rule in the band…”
To mix things up, the songs will be re-ordered for this collection, so that they run in alphabetical order based on their titles. Frank said, ”[the alphabetisation of the tracks] feels like an approximation of randomness, it’s a way to randomise something especially if is song titles in this case, by placing them alphabetically, we get away from the preciousness of the so-called LPs that we put out and it’s more about the body of work, the good times that we had…”
