Please watch the video above for the full review…

Between 1998 and 2003, Frank Black and co. released six albums under the ‘Frank Black And The
Catholics’ moniker. All recorded live and direct to two track tape, the albums are some of the most energised, raw, and essential of Frank Black’s career.
For almost two decades, the Catholics’ studio albums have been out of print or unavailable on vinyl.

‘The Complete Studio Albums’ boxset featuring all six original releases expertly remastered from the original studio tapes and pressed on heavyweight 180g clear vinyl.

  • ‘Frank Black And The Catholics’ (1998), ‘Pistolero’ (1999),
  • ‘Dog In The Sand’ (2001) [first time on vinyl],
  • ‘Black Letter Days’ (2002) [2LP, first time on vinyl]
  • ‘Devil’s Workshop’ (2002) [first time on vinyl],
  • ‘Show Me Your Tears’ (2003).

Each album is pressed on 180g clear vinyl and housed in printed inner sleeves along with outer
sleeves featuring spot gloss detailing. All 80 tracks have been newly remastered from the original studio tapes by Phil Kinrade at Alchemy Mastering at AIR.

The albums are housed together in a rigid outer sleeve and accompanied by a 32 page booklet featuring new liner notes by Catholics producer / engineer Ben Mumphrey plus unseen and rare
photographs by Steve Gullick.
