This box set will include all four solo albums Lloyd released on the Polydor and Fontana labels between 1988 and 1996 (Lloyd Cole, Don’t Get Weird On Me Babe, Bad Vibes, Love Story) and an unreleased album fifth album, Smile If You Want To. The sixth and final CD is called Demos ‘89-‘94 and features 20 previously unreleased recordings. The Smile If You Want To was was completed at the time, but thanks to time-honoured record company politics it was never released. The songs came out on subsequent albums, but this is the first time they have been released as they were originally intended and fully mastered by Ian Jones at Abbey Road studios (all the albums have been remastered).
A hardback book by John O’Connell with new interviews with Lloyd and featured musicians, producers and collaborators and a selection of photos from the period, plus a poster and postcards that feature Lloyd shot in New York by photographer Kevin Cummins.
