Lush / Origami RSD vinyl box


4AD will follow-up their recent five-CD Lush Chorus box with Origami, a five-LP vinyl set that exclusive for Record Store Day 2016.

Origami contains the three Lush albums Spooky (1992), Split (1994) and Lovelife (1996) as well as their compilations Gala (1990) and Topolino (1996). All have been out of print since the nineties except Topolino, which has never before been available on vinyl.

As with Chorus, long-time associate and former v23 collaborator Chris Bigg has handled the design and this looks stunning with each album is pressed on different colour vinyl.

This box will also come with download codes for each album and will be available via participating independent record shops on Record Store Day, which is 16 April 2016.

Townsend Records were never going to get any stock for this, and cancelled all their “pre-orders” due to the box set being listed “in error”. They stated no payment would be taken until the order was “processed”. However, despite their cancelling the “pre-order” the day before; April 15th; funds were taken and the consequent wait for a refund meant missing out on the copies of “Origami” in the local shop. I wouldn’t trust Townsend Music as far as I could throw them.


Do Townsend have a history of honouring RSD pre-orders?

Alan Wilson

I see Townsend Music are up to their old tricks again already with this RSD release and allowing you to per-order.

You can buy it from their online store for £71.99 plus p+p

I have just placed a Pre-Order – £73.99 including P&P to mainland UK.

THANK GOODNESS for Townsend Records offering this for Pre-Order and delivery…. I am a real fan but cannot get to RSD Shops on the day due to disability, (even if there was one anywhere near me, which there is not).

Whilst I wish all traditional Record Stores the greatest of success & often order on line from independents I was really upset that LUSH had made this a RSD exclusive, (especially after the nightmare getting hold of Chorus when it was released).

In my experience RSD Exclusives are NOT for the real fans, but really most of them go to eBayers who just flip them to make a profit! Yes, they drive a lot of traffic into the stores on that day but also lead to a lot of genuine people being disappointed and ripped off by opportunists!


I want! But how much will it be?

Paul English

Gala is missing a track – Scarlet (New Version) – that closed side 2 of the original LP.


First I heard of this was via a shop in Chicago, so it’s coming out in the US as well.


Why has the ‘Chorus’ CD Boxset become so hard to get hold of already?


It’s available now in the US 4AD shop, at least:



Just for the UK? That really blows.


Will wait to see how much before I think about this. I have all the albums and eps apart from Lovelife on lp and I just got the Chorus box set.
