REWIND: Stereo MC's - 'On 33'

Today, I'm playing a track that is unknown by far too many people. Especially when you consider how big Stereo MC's were in the early 90s. However this particular track is from a few years before they found mainstream success with 'Connected'. The superb old school flavours of 'On 33' open the band's 1989 debut album '33-45-78', which makes up one of the 9 CDs that will soon be available as part of a new boxset. Also featuring a DVD, 'Collected' is released on October 27. As well as the excellent debut, the box includes their breakthrough album 'Supernatural', the 1992 Brit Award winning Connected, its long-awaited follow up, Deep Down And Dirty from 2001, together with the albums Paradise, Double Bubble and Emperors’ Nightingale from the past decade. The live-in-concert 'Connected' video is included in the package to sample the unstoppable force that the Stereo MCs are live, alongside all of their promotional videos. To add to this, there are 2 disc’s worth of rare and unheard tracks and remixes, and importantly three brand new tracks, ‘Good Feeling,’ ‘Dance Tonight’ and ‘Autumn Leaves’ recorded in the group’s Brixton studio earlier this year.

The lavish package contains a brand new 32 page book featuring unseen images, memorabilia and an interview with Nick Hallam and Rob Birch telling their story in their own words. After all that the band have achieved it’s time to stay tuned, because in the words of the band “We’ve got our best music to come.”

'Collected' will also available as a digital set
