Aztec Camera to reissue all 6 studio albums with bonus B-sides, remixes, live disc

Demon Music Group late next month will reissue all six albums from the Roddy Frame-led Scottish indie-pop act Aztec Camera in 2CD and single-disc expanded editions, each featuring an assortment of bonus cuts including non-album singles, B-sides, remixes and, in the case of the band’s penultimate album, a full bonus live disc.

As Super Deluxe Edition notes, the reissues of 1983′s High Land, Hard Rain, 1984′s Knife, 1987′s Love, 1990′s Stray, 1993′s Dreamland and 1995′s Frestonia are due out Aug. 27 in the U.K. The band’s first two and last albums are being released as expanded single-disc sets, while the middle three will receive more elaborate 2CD reissues.

All told, the reissues feature 50 bonus tracks spread across the six albums, including two versions of the band’s famous cover of Van Halen’s “Jump,” six different mixes of “Good Morning Britain”  — Frame’s duet with The Clash’s Mick Jones — and the 13-track Live at Ronnie Scott’s album, recorded June 23, 1991, and paired with the Dreamland reissue.

    Now they must tour!!!

     
  • Kevin,

    Wow! This is great news, though I’m a bit saddened to see they didn’t chose to include the first two singles Just Like Gold and Mattress Of Wire. These have never seen a release on cd, and a this point probably never will.

    Gor blimey, 6 bloody mixes of good morning Britain? a track that was very much of it’s time. Still, Jump loaded version available at last on a UK release.

    Good on them for having all the versions of Good Morning Britain, redundancy be damned.
