Mark E. Smith of The Fall

The second round of 5 Albums box sets from Beggars Archive — promoted as “the last chance to present (these) albums as physical releases in the foreseeable future” — will collect full albums, live recordings and assorted bonus tracks from The Fall, The Icicle Works and Buffalo Tom, and should be out by July, according to the reissue label.

The 5 Albums series launched last month with the release, in the U.K., of new five-disc sets from Love and Rockets, Gary Numan and Natacha Atlas, and also will include, later this year, collections of material from Bauhaus, The Charlatans, Gene Loves Jezebel and Fields of the Nephilim.

A firm release date hasn’t been announced for sets from The Fall, Icicle Works and Buffalo Tom, but the Beggars Archive blog notes they’re being targeted for a July release.

The sets include:

  • The Fall: The collection of releases from Mark E. Smith and Co. focuses on the late ’80s, including The Frenz Experiment and I Am Kurious Oranj, both released in 1988 and each presented in their original vinyl track sequences and expanded with a total of 11 bonus tracks, plus a disc full of mixes of 1987 single “Hit the North,” a new compilation entitled Singles 1987-1988 and the 1989 hybrid live/studio album Seminal Live.
  • The Icicle Works: The 5 Albums set features the band’s first four, Beggars Banquet-released albums — The Icicle Works (1984), The Small Price of a Bicycle (1985), If You Want to Defeat Your Enemy, Sing His Song (1987) and Blind (1988 )— each expanded with bonus tracks (more than 30 in total), plus a live set recorded in 1986 (minus the two encore songs, since they didn’t fit on the CD).
  • Buffalo Tom: The new Beggars set features the band’s second through sixths albums — Birdbrain (1990), Let Me Come Over (1992), Big Red Letter Day (1993), Sleepy Eyed (1995) and Smitten (1988) — with no extra material aside from the three bonus tracks that already appeared on the CD versions of Birdbrain and Let Me Come Over.
