The Fall’s 7-disc ‘The Singles 1978-2016’ box set to collect 117 A-sides and B-sides

Nearly four decades’ worth of singles — both A-sides and their accompanying B-sides — by the assorted lineups of Mark E. Smith’s pioneering post-punk outfit The Fall will be collected on a new 7-disc, 117-track box set from Cherry Red Records this November.

The collection, christened The Singles 1978-2016, is due to be released Nov. 24 in both a full 7-disc set and a slimmed-down 3-disc set that just presents the A-sides, without the four CDs worth of B-sides.  Both versions of the forthcoming box set can be pre-ordered via the label’s website.

According to Cherry Red, this collection — remastered by Fall engineer Andy Pearce — is the first to bring together Fall output released across a swath of different labels, including Step Forward, Rough Trade, Kamera, Beggars Banquet, Cog Sinister, Permanent, Artful, Action and Cherry Red itself.

The collection spans music released on The Fall’s 1978 debut EP Bingo-Master’s Break-Out! through 2016’s Wise Ol’ Man EP, and countless singles, and their B-sides, in between (though not anything from New Facts Emerge, the band’s 32nd studio album, which was released this past July).

The box set includes a full illustrated discography from Fall expert Conway Paton.

See the full tracklist below.
