180 Gram Audiophile Virgin Vinyl LP - 13 LPs Sealed
Celebrating 21 years since the band's debut release, Blur's body of work has been personally compiled by the band and gathered together in this 13LP Box Set! In the mid-'90s with the release of Modern Life Is Rubbish, Parklife, and The Great Escape, which were heavily influenced by The Kinks, The Beatles and XTC, Blur helped to popularize the Britpop genre and achieved massive popularity in the UK. The British alternative rock group are perhaps best known for their song "Song 2" from their self-titled album Blur.
Blur’s first five studio albums have now been remastered from the original tapes by Frank Arkwright (The Smiths, Arcade Fire, New Order, Joy Division), with the remastering overseen by legendary producer, Stephen Street. All seven original Blur albums have now been given the space of 2 LPs (expect for Leisure which remains a single LP), cut on heavyweight 180 gram, audiophile vinyl and housed in a replica of the original sleeve artwork.
All seven vinyl formats of the Blur albums are collected together for Blur 21: The Vinyl Box and housed in a sturdy hard case, presenting the definitive collection of Blur vinyl.

Vinyl records are able to capture the purest quality of recorded music in true form. This is possible because the initial recording is captured on an analog source (usually tape) for the ultimate in High Fidelity sound, it is then pressed onto virgin vinyl. Analog recordings capture the bottom end (or bass) while adding sweetness to the high end (or treble) better than any digital recording ever could. Analog systems are still commonly used before they are digitally transferred to CD. This means that the sound then is altered in the transfer process when CD's are produced. The word fidelity means accuracy and faithfulness. High Fidelity sound is faithful to the original sound made by the artist, capturing maximum accuracy of what was intended for the listener to hear. Vinyl records capture those sounds for the ultimate High Fidelity listening experience!
180/200 GRAM Vinyl LP
These vinyl records are produced with 180 or 200 grams of high definition premium grade virgin vinyl. This is a higher quality audiophile pressing than the typical vinyl record of 100-120 grams. These limited edition LP's are manufactured with the hi-fi enthusiast in mind. A 180 or 200 gram LP is sometimes also referred to as an audiophile pressing, there is a higher bass response and an even warmer High Fidelity sound. 180 or 200 grams LP's are typically manufactured in limited amounts and are considered collectables, commanding a higher price.
Typically, a vinyl reissue is a repressing of an original LP, usually extracted from the recording's master-tapes. In some cases, reissues are remastered to lower surface noise and improve overall sonics. Reissues help preserve the music of an original recording, especially when original LPs become unavailable or can no longer be found. Reissues can be pressed on a variety of thickness from 150 gram to 200 gram and offer a great opportunity for records collectors to own many classic recordings.
