Cherry Red Records this summer will release a new nine-disc deluxe box set compiling the five albums Aztec Camera released on WEA between 1984 and 1995 as well as four discs of singles, B-sides, live material, remixes and vinyl-only rarities.

The 112-track Backwards and Forwards: The WEA Recordings 1984-1995 is due out Aug. 27, and can be pre-ordered now.

The box set collects all but the first album by Roddy Frame’s Scottish indie-pop favorites, as 1983’s High Land, Hard Rain originally was released by Rough Trade. The set includes 1984’s Knife, 1987’s Love, 1990’s Stray, 1993’s Dreamland and 1995’s Frestonia.

Each of the albums is appended with a series of bonus tracks, and there are four more discs, including two live albums and two CDs worth of singles, B-sides, remixes and other assorted tracks
