Last chance to order The Go-Betweens: G Stands For Go-Betweens Volume One.

Hello, everyone.  We’re glad to announce a small window for folks to get one last crack at ordering a copy of our sold out Go-Betweens box G Stands For Go-Betweens Volume One.  While we were pleasantly overwhelmed by the response the first time around at how quickly we sold out, we realize that there were folks out there that either got lured in by legitimate-looking offers from other online stores or simply found out about the box after we had sold out of our initial run.  We’ve also seen a bit of Keynesian profiteering on remaining demand and want to alleviate some of that pressure as well.

SO… we are opening a very small AND FINAL window within which you can order a copy of the box set, G Stands For Go-Betweens Volume One.  You have until the end of the day September 13th to place a order.  Orders will be shipping by the end of November, in case you’re wondering about holiday gift-giving for that special Go-Betweens fan in your life (hint, hint), yes it would arrive in a timely manner.

And just a reminder of what comes in the box:

G Stands For Go-Betweens Volume One extensively documents the band’s origins in an ambitious box containing four vinyl albums, four compact discs and an extensive 112-page book, featuring a trove of archival photos and extensive historical liner notes from founding member Robert Forster, along with additional pieces from guest essayists, fans and contemporaries.

The box set captures the band’s output from 1978 through 1984 and includes the first vinyl re-pressings of their first three studio albums in over thirty years (Send Me A LullabyBefore Hollywood Spring Hill Fair), all re-mastered from the original analogue tapes. G Stands For Go-Betweens also brings together their early classic and collectible singles together on a fourth vinyl LP entitled The First Five Singles featuring new artwork from its creators. 

Additionally, the set comes with four compact discs of rare, hard-to-find and unreleased demos, recordings, radio sessions and a complete live concert radio broadcast from 1982. If that’s not enough, the set comes with a silkscreen of their first promotional poster for their debut single, “Lee Remick", as well as a reproduction of their very first press release from their own Able Label.  Please note that this opportunity does not include either the Grant McLennan book nor the signed bookmark from the original limited pre-order.  For those that missed out on that, we will be making that offering available again with Volume Two in the future.

 love,

 p.s. you can pick up Robert Forster’s excellent new solo album, Songs To Playhere.
