Really hope they do a box set for 90’s on.

They’ve done several box sets (The Heady Nuggs series) that cover everything since being signed to Warners.

When ordered on Amazon US, the vinyl version of Greatest Hits includes an Autorip of the entire 3CD deluxe edition.

They are also re-releasing the Restless Record albums on vinyl, so this is basically the companion to those (this will cover most of the stuff on Seeing The Unseeable. No Mushroom Tapes though)


These tracks weren’t on The Greatest Hits deluxe CD but they are on the recent Seeing The Unseeable release that predates their Warners output.


Seeing the Unseeable (CD box set) was put back to 29th June, I assume to make way for the Greatest Hits.


fwiw “Summertime Blues” is on the Scratching The Door comp, not Seeing The Unseeable.


They are going for it, now that they own their Warners catalogue.
