The only band in history who was famously proclaimed as "The Best New Band in Britain" before even releasing their debut album, Suede made justice to that title, and went on to become one of the biggest groups in the UK. They split in 2003, and after a decade-long hiatus, they released "Bloodsports" in 2013. In the meantime, their 5 studio albums were repackaged and rereleased as 2CD+DVD combos in 2011. A limited edition albums box set was also released in 2013, presenting for the first time their complete discography in vinyl format. Now, 2 new box sets are released, collecting all of their singles from 1992's self-titled album through to 2013's "Bloodsports", on CD (photo 1) and 7" vinyl (photo 2). The vinyl box set presents the singles in picture sleeves, featuring 48 tracks (24 A-Sides and 24 B-Sides, the latter selected by Brett Anderson), a 20-page booklet, and a download card.

The CD box set (I opted for this one, being more comprehensive) rounds up nearly all the B-Sides from the multiple editions of the CD singles (very few tracks - mostly live - are missing, but are included 7 tracks that were not issued on the 2011 album re-issues). It includes the 24 singles from the band's 22-year history, plus 79 B-Sides (that's an amazing 103 tracks in total!), in replica picture wallets, a 28-video DVD, and a beautifully assembled and informative 24-page glossy booklet, all housed in a lavish, sturdy box. A download card is also included. An exquisite package altogether, and an essential release for completists and collectors. Having purchased the limited edition vinyl albums box set of last year, I have to admit that the effort made in order to present each time a unique product really shows. Thus, it is no surprise that these box sets sell very quickly, considering the limited availability (the new boxes are limited to 1,000 copies worldwide each). Wish I could buy both sets, but the CD one will do.
