10cc / Tenology / 40th Anniversary career-spanning five-disc box set

10cc / Tenology / 40th anniversary five-disc box set

To mark the 40th anniversary of their formation in Stockport in 1972, Universal will release a five-disc box set entitled Tenology by 10cc on 19 November 2012.

The box set has been compiled with the involvement of the original band members – Lol Creme, Kevin Godley, Graham Gouldman and Eric Stewart – and comprises four CDs (the singles, selected album tracks, the B-sides and rarities) and a DVD (featuring a selection of their promo videos and TV performances on Top Of The Pops, BBC In Concert, See You Sunday and Six Fifty Five Special).

Rather promisingly, the packaging for Tenology has been designed by Storm Studios, home of legendary British graphic designer Storm Thorgerson (best known for his work with Pink Floyd, although with Hipgnosis he worked extensively with 10cc in the ’70s).

The set also contains an 8500 word essay by journalist Paul Lester, and features new interviews with Crème, Godley, Gouldman and Stewart.

……………and suddenly its costing £100!!!!!!! Didn’t realise it was a limited edition!!!


Do we have any further details on remastering etc?

According to the Amazon UK listing both “Rubber Bullets” and “I’m Not In Love” are single edits. Which in the case of the latter surely amounts to nothing less than sacrilege.


For me, disappointing. I have all the albums and most of the B sides have already been released as bonus tracks on these releases. The only thing that would sway me is some decent remastering.

Mark Wardle

The edit has been issued on a few compilations such as “Steve Wrights Sunday Love Songs – Make ups and break ups”. The single released originally had the full length version – cannot imagine that they would allow their most famous song to be issued in this way – especially as the band helped compile the box set. The edited version seems to only be on cheap and cheery compilations – it’s never appeared on ANY 10cc compilation that I have ever seen.


Looks good, and at a reasonable price. Ghastly title though, ‘Tenology’. Smacks of the Alien DVD boxset name, ‘Quadrilogy’.


Dear sweet thing
Has anyone educated you yet on the pun title?
Phrenology is an antiquated theory that the human brain had specialised areas that managed specific things.
Tenology (hence the cover image) is a play on words.

Interesting. Many of these tracks on CD for the first time. Shame they didn’t put Waterfalls on it though.
