The Human League to Release New 5 Vinyl Box Set Including “Dare” and more!

    For the new wave fans who dare to add more vinyl to their collections, The Human League has announced the release of a new box set comprising four of their groundbreaking albums, released between 1981-1990 via Virgin Records.  The news follows the reissue of the remix album Love And Dancing, initially released in 1982, which was recently pressed on white vinyl for Record Store Day.

    The Virgin Years box set features the classic album Dare, the still-influential phoenix that rose from the ashes of the band’s influential and synth-heavy first incarnation, and also includes Fascination EP, Hysteria, Crash, and Romantic, on exciting new limited edition coloured vinyl.

    In the Spring of 1983, the group released the six-track EP Fascination, which brought together the singles “(Keep Feeling) Fascination” in its extended forms, and “Mirror Man,” along with the classic b-sides “You Remind Me Of Gold,”Hard Times, and I Love You Too Much.

    The group re-recorded the latter track for the Hysteria album, which appeared in May 1984. The LP contained three hit singles “The Lebanon,”Life On Your Own,” and “Louise.”

    Two years later, the band would experiment even further by mostly recording the album Crash with the production team of Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. The gamble paid off, and it returned The Human League to the top of the US charts with the song Human.

    After a break in 1988 for a multi-platinum selling greatest hits album, the group returned with Romantic?’which was yet another move forward with their sound, the hit single “Heart Like A Wheel” saw the band reunite with DARE producer Martin Rushent. However, after a dozen years with the label, it was to be their last album for Virgin. The band continues to record, have hits and tour the world to this day……but that’s a story for another boxset.

    The box set comes out on the 11th of November and is available for pre-order now.
