Millions Like Us - The Story Of The Mod Revival 1977-1989 box set (Cherry Red)

Millions Like Us – The Story Of The Mod Revival 1977-1989 box set (Cherry Red)

Good news for anyone waiting patiently for Millions Like Us – The Story Of The Mod Revival 1977-1989 box set on the Cherry Red label – the final tracklisting has been confirmed and pre-orders are now being taken.

What we don’t have is a release date, which we presume is still on track for November 2014. That’s not long off now. It certainly isn’t the August date that one well-known retailer has listed!

The box set is likely to be an impressive affair (with booklet and background detail from John Reed) – Cherry Red has put out some really nice boxes of late. Obviously, if you love the music, that’s probably the key thing here, with the confirmed tracklisting available below, slightly different to the one we were sent in the box set’s early days I think, at least in terms of running order and possibly content too.

Anyway, feel free to compare and contract. Amazon is doing pre-orders right now for £30.99 if you want to get in early.

Pre-order the box set at the Amazon website

Update: It seems like the release date is now 8th December 2014
