After the triumphant TV return last Christmas of The League of Gentlemen, not to mention the troupe’s return to the stage this month, Demon Records has announced the release of Special Stuff, a vinyl box set that includes every episode of both the BBC radio series and the TV show.
The mammoth set includes 4 3xLP gatefold albums encased in a unique box that pays homage to master butcher Hilary Briss’ own ‘Special Stuff’ container. There’s original artwork throughout by the legendary Graham Humphreys (poster artist on so many great films and events), with 12 heavyweight coloured vinyl records.
The set comprises of:
On the Town with The League of Gentlemen – The original BBC radio series The League of Gentlemen: Series One – A Local Shop For Local People – The Complete BBC TV Series The League of Gentlemen: Series Two – You’re My Wife Now – The Complete BBC TV Series The League of Gentlemen: Series Three – Do You Want A Bag With That? – The Complete BBC TV Series Exclusive one sided pressing of Creme Brulee’s ‘Voodoo Lady’ with etched Side B Exclusive sleeve notes my Mark Gatiss, Steve Pemberton, Reece Shearsmith and Jeremy Dyson Exclusive photo print signed by the League Four unique 12” x 12” frame-ready prints
In true League fashion, co-creator Jeremy Dyson said of the release: “What is this bastard child you hold in your hand? This strange hybrid format - a vinyl LP of a television comedy series which is available on DVD and digital download. Why would you want to own such a thing, the sound without the pictures? What’s the matter with you?”
The highly desirable limited edition set is available exclusively from www.alocalshop.co.uk and is released on November 2nd.
