The Go-Betweens to release G Stands for Go-Betweens Volume One anthology

Fantastic news for those of you looking to soundtrack an eight-hour walk in the park: Domino Records has just announced G Stands for Go-Betweens Volume 1, an anthology celebrating the formative years of the legendary Aussie pop quintet The Go-Betweens. The box set contains the band’s first three albums (Send Me a Lullaby, Before Hollywood, and Spring Hill Fair) and their first five singles split across four LPs, as well as an additional four CDs of rare and unreleased demos, live sessions, and concerts.

In addition to the music, the set also comes packaged with a reproduction of the band’s first press release and a poster featuring the cover of the band’s first single, “Lee Remick.” Of course, no re-release these days is complete without a side of literature, so expect a massive (by liner notes standards) 112-page book of notes and essays. Since you probably already expected that, Domino is including some bonus texts for the first 600 pre-orders and tossing in a book from late front man Grant McLennan’s personal library. That’s one nerdy estate sale, y’all.

Listen to a couple tracks from the anthology below, and complete info on the box set is available here.
