Jah Wobble, once the bassist for Public Image, Ltd (PiL), and a solo artist of extraordinary skill and presentation, has a 6CD Boxed collection culled from his body of work soon to be hitting the shelves (or virtual shelves, as it seems to headed these days). The Box is being called Redux: Anthology 1978-2015.

Released in the UK only (via the awesome UK label, Cherry Red), Redux: Anthology 1978-2015 will completely span Jah Wobble’s excellent career with the inclusion of 92 tracks. Jah Wobble has experimented with many genres of music, even successfully fusing some in grand experiments. All six CDs found in this box are specific in intent (see track-list below). I’m sure the booklet will be as rewarding as the 92 tracks. It is noted that Jah Wobble has written exhaustive notes for the booklet. The set arrives on May 25.

Interestingly, “The Sun Does Rise”, a classic Invaders Of The Heart tune with Delores O’Riordon at vocals, does NOT make an appearance in this box.

In addition, the Box will contain new Jah Wobble music in “Merry Go Round”, with its B-side, “Let’s Go Psycho”, as well as new versions of old classics, “Becoming More Like God”, and “Visions Of You”.

While this is old news, having been announced via other news agencies and forums since February, I still thought it necessary to list at this later date to refresh memories and alert those that may have missed any of the announcements. Jah Wobble, and his various associations, is THAT good!
