Chocolate Soup For Diabetics Volumes 1-5 return as a budget box set

Last Friday saw the return of Chocolate Soup For Diabetics Volumes 1-5, which is back as a budget box set via the Particles label.

This is the entire run of albums from a series that dates back (I think) as far as 1980. The albums of late 1960s British psych classics were originally on vinyl, but have seen a CD release before on CD. However, this latest release brings all five volumes together, throwing in what’s described as a ‘lavish full-colour booklet’ with discographies and histories of every act, as well as many rare photographs.

But best of all, the 82-track collection is available for a rather budget price. Grab a set for £20.30, which works out at around £4 per disc (plus 30p for the book). Sounds a winner if psych is your thing. Track listing below.
