DEF LEPPARD EARLY YEARS Five Disc Box Set Listed By Retail Sites

Def Leppard 2019. Def Leppard 2020

A new Def Leppard early Years box set has been listed by retail sites including Amazon UK.

As mentioned earlier today Amazon UK are listing reissues of 'On Through The Night' and 'High 'n' Dry with a release date of 14th February 2020.

Further investigation reveals various European retail sites are now listing a five disc box set which may be called "The Early Years 79-81".

Note - The release date of the release later changed to 20th March before the listings were removed from Amazon.

The two new CD and Vinyl editions of 'On Through The Night' and 'High 'n' Dry' listed by Amazon UK are likely part of these five discs.

With these two albums taking up the first two discs that leaves three others and one of these will likely be the Oxford 1980 show.

The cover artwork shown on some retail sites is a photo taken on 24th August 1980 in Reading, England at the Reading Festival.

This show was recorded at least in part by the BBC. This recording and others might also be part of the box set.

The band's Paris Theatre show in August 1979 was recorded and broadcast by the BBC along with two sessions for The Friday Rock Show and The Andy Peebles show.

'The Def Leppard E.P.' and other tracks included on the Rarities #1 disc with the 'Collection Volume 1' may well be part of this release.

None of the retail sites (so far) have any tracklistings.

'On Through The Night' will be 40 years old on 14th March 2020 having been released on that date in 1980.

Joe recently suggested the imminent release of a box set, Volume 3 or otherwise, when talking to Rock 100.5 radio in Atlanta, GA.

Saying the box set would feature three of their live performances with Brian May.
