Bill Wyman White Lightnin The Solo BoxIf you’re a Stones fan, or, more specifically, a fan of Bill Wyman, then here’s a collector’s treat for you.

On June 15, the UK market will release a 4CD/1DVD Box called White Lightnin’: The Solo Box. The box will assemble into one place, the four solo Bill Wyman efforts (Monkey Grip – 1974, Stone Alone – 1976, Bill Wyman – 1982, Stuff – 1992, Japan/Argentina only release, released in UK – 2000). The title of this box is taken from Wyman’s  Monkey Grip, where the song originates.

The Box set will offer 24 bonus tracks, four of which have been previously unreleased. Each CD in the box will contain the bonus tracks relevant to their original sessions (see track-list below). The included DVD will feature a new video interview with Wyman, along with eight promo videos, and a selection of live TV clips from the BBC. The booklet will be a 40-page affair with the usual collection of new photos, notes, essays, lyrics, and credits. The box will be a clam-shell housing unit.
