Stiff Records is thrilled to announce... Ten Big Stiffs: ten classic seven inch singles in one deluxe box set, exclusively released for Record Store Day USA's Black Friday event on 29 November 2013.
Designed and presented in collaboration with our friends at Razor & Tie, Ten Big Stiffs (BUY 289) gives you exactly that: ten 7" singles pressed from the original master tapes, in replica sleeves (and with exact replica labels) from Wreckless Eric (Whole Wide World), Jona Lewie (You’ll Always Find Me In The Kitchen at Parties), Desmond Dekker (Israelites), Pink Fairies (Between The Lines), Plasmatics (Monkey Suit), Tenpole Tudor (Swords of a Thousand Men), Tracey Ullman (They Don’t Know), Kirsty MacColl (A New England), The Untouchables (I Spy For The FBI) and Mint Juleps (Docklands).
(What's that you say? A 7" of the Mint's Docklands? Yes, 25 years after it was first announced, this mythical Stiff single will finally be pressed on vinyl.)
To get you in the mood, relive the history of Stiff - and all the artists featured in the box set - with a brand new series of mini-documentaries from award-winning filmmaker Nigel Dick (winner of three MTV Awards, two Billboard Awards, a Brit Award and an original Stiff Records press officer). The videos will appear over the next month at www.10BigStiffs.com, and you can watch Nigel's introduction to Stiff here:
This deluxe, limited edition box set - which also includes a booklet with liner notes and track-by-track recaps - will be sold exclusively at Record Store Day in November 2013 in North America. For a list of participating stores, head to recordstoreday.com. A digital edition will be released on 26 November on iTunes.
Stiff Records, where the fun never sets.
