Nick Cave to Unveil 3xCD B-Sides, Rarities Box

Zach Vowell reports:

Soon after the Birthday Party disbanded in 1983, Nick Cave assembled the Bad Seeds and began recording in 1984. Two decades later, Cave and co. have released enough material under the A-side radar to allow them to release a 3-disc, 56 track compilation, simply (and descriptively) titled B-Sides & Rarities. The collection will be issued via Mute on March 22, which, including the band's recent double release of Abattoir Blues / The Lyre of Orpheus, will result in five Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds discs released in a matter of five months.

The material will be compiled from a variety of sources, including B-sides, songs from soundtracks, acoustic versions of Bad Seeds classics, tribute album contributions, and music recorded during various radio sessions, among several other sources. As key Bad Seeds member Mick Harvey puts it, "Basically, this is material that was B-sides, outtakes, or extra recordings. The other criteria was that it was a Bad Seeds recording not a Nick Cave recording." Apparently, that stringent criteria still left plenty of choices. Well, here we go:

The sad thing is how many of those tracks I already own. But heyheyhey, I'll be buying that the microsecond it hits the shelves. The day before I'll be seeing Blixa Bargeld's band on their 25th anniversary tour in London, no less.

EDIT: DiS have the release date as the 4th of April, not the 22nd of March, Neubauten play on the 5th of April. Just to clear up any confusion, I didn't notice the different release dates.

Same here..... got loads of 7", 12" and CD singles kicking around with those tracks on them. Still, I'll be ordering it well in advance no doubt.

It's 14.99 on play.com - http://www.play.com/play247.asp?page=title&r=CD&title=170397&p=34&g=48
