Suede ‘Dog Man Star’ 20th Anniversary Box Set Release: band’s sophomore album gets deluxe multi-format reissue.
Their grandiose sophomore effort will be released in a deluxe box set edition on October 20th (the album was first released on October 10th, 1994).
The box-set will feature the album in various formats, including Vinyl, CD, High Fidelity Blu-ray audio, and even cassette (very cool retro touch there).
The release will also include several B-sides, a DVD with behind the scenes footage and band interviews, as well as a hardcover book with new liner notes from frontman Brent Anderson.
Dog Man Star was extremely underrated upon its release, and caused upheaval when guitarist Bernard Butler quit the band during its troubled production. But Suede fans have claimed it as perhaps their best work, so this should be a perfect holiday gift for the Britpop fan in your life.
