Collection is due to be released in January 2015

The Go-Betweens are to release a lush new anthology that compiles their work from 1978 to 1984.

Released by Domino Records, ‘G Stands For Go-Betweens Volume One’ will include both vinyl and CD editions of the band’s first three studio albums ‘Send Me A Lullaby’, ‘Before Hollywood’ and ‘Spring Hill Fair’, all remastered from original analogue tapes. A new LP that compiles their early singles will also be included.

Additionally, the set — due for release on January 19, 2015 — will feature a 112-page book, four CDs of rarities, liner notes from founding member Robert Forster, plus various other collectibles.

The Go-Betweens were formed by Forster and co-frontman Grant McLennan while attending university in Brisbane during the 1970s. They released six records in the eighties, before splitting up in 1989. However, they went on to release three more LPs in the noughties before McLennan’s death in 2006.

Domino are currently offering a randomly selected book from McLennan’s personal libarary along with a specially-printed bookmark signed by Forster to the first 600 people who pre-order ‘G Stands For Go-Betweens Volume One’. Many of the books were also signed by McLennan.
