Jane’s Addiction to release massive box set

It includes 30 unreleased tracks

Jane’s Addiction have announced that they will release a massive box set this spring.

‘A Cabinet Of Curiosities’ is due out in the US on April 21 via Rhino records, and features several rare recordings, demos and live tracks. The three CD, one DVD box set kicks off with five songs recorded in 1986 in Venice, CA including a previously unreleased version of ‘Jane Says’.

It also includes rare demos of their classic tracks ‘Three Days,’ ‘Ocean Size,’ ‘Classic Girl,’ ‘Summertime Rolls,’ and ‘Stop!’ The second disc contains more unreleased demos along with a recording of the band rehearsing ‘My Time’ and a 12-inch remix of ‘Been Caught Stealing’.

The set also includes Jane’s Addiction covering Led Zeppelin‘s ‘Whole Lotta Love’ and The Stooges‘1970’.

The DVD contains several videos including the one for ‘Mountain Song’ that was banned by MTV and candid home movies of the band. It also features 1990 performances taped in Milan for MTV Italy.

The box set comes packaged in a limited-edition wooden “curio cabinet” that features recreations of the band’s early concert fliers, tickets stubs and other memorabilia. The set will also be available digitally.

In addition, Rhino has announced that it will release 180-gram vinyl versions of Jane’s Addiction‘s landmark albums 1988’s ‘Nothing’s Shocking’ and 1990’s ‘Ritual De Lo Habitual’ to celebrate Record Store Day on April 18.

The band’s original lineup reunited for the first ever NME Awards USA last year and have been playing a handful of small club shows around Los Angeles ever since.
