Sex Pistols Celebrate 35 Years of 'Never Mind the Bollocks' with Deluxe Reissue

Sex Pistols Celebrate 35 Years of 'Never Mind the Bollocks' with Deluxe Reissue
The Sex Pistols have announced plans for a hefty box set that will mark the 35th anniversary of their seminal punk album Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols.

Due for release through Universal Music on September 24 in the UK, the three-CD/one-DVD collection's main attraction is the recently recovered original 1977 master tapes. Previously thought to have been lost, the tapes have been remastered by Tim Young and original producer Chris Thomas.

Another highlight for collectors is the lost 1977 demo recording of "Belsen Was a Gas," though the set also includes demos from the Spunk bootleg, live performances, a "God Save the Queen" / "No Feelings" seven-inch single, interviews and memorabilia like copies of handwritten "God Save the Queen" lyrics, and a promo poster for the album.

Full box set details are listed below.

Thanks to Slicing Up Eyeballs for the tip.
