The Jesus and Mary Chain Boxed Set: 81 Tracks of Hidden History

 

By: Spacelab Research Staff

It turns out that negative thinking can sometimes be a good thing. In the case of the Jesus and Mary Chain, it can describe a collection of 81 tracks of b-sides, rarities and interviews in the form of a boxed set.

 

The Power of Negative Thinking: B-Sides & Rarities is the title of a new Jesus and Mary Chain collection being offerred by Rhino Records this Fall. It's a chronological array of music spanning the entire career of JMC, put together with curatorial oversight from both Jim and William Reid.

 

Nothing can immortalize a band quite like a Rhino Records compilation. The time-honored delivery of an all-encompassing set of tracks, lovingly put together by the minds of Rhino, can help shape how bands are perceived for the ages.

 

The Power of Negative Thinking will show the backwaters of the Jesus and Mary Chain catalog and provide a glimpse of the songs that never made the final cut for an album, but were still good tracks. It will be released on September 30th via Rhino Records.
