Mötley Crüe announce vinyl box set containing first five albums –

Mötley Crüe have announced the Crucial Crue: The Studio Albums 1981-1989 box set, which compiles his first five records on vinyl and CD. Both formats will arrive on February 17.

The LP box will contain colored vinyl variants of the following albums: too fast for love (white/black splatter); Yells the demon (yellow/black splash); theater of pain (hot pink magenta/black splatter); Girls, girls, girls (blue cyan/black splatter); Y dr feel good (green coke bottle/ox blood splash). Vinyl and CD sets are limited to 10,000 copies worldwide.

It’s the first time Crüe’s iconic ’80s production has been included in a single package on vinyl and CD. The band previously offered those five albums as part of a limited 40th anniversary cassette box set for Record Store Day in 2021. That set of tapes was marred by a freak manufacturing defect in which the magnet used to close physical box damaged media in too fast for lovewhich caused a backlash among collectors.

The box set announcement concludes an eventful year for Mötley Crüe, who were finally able to kick off their highly anticipated stadium tour with Def Leppard following postponements due to the pandemic. The North American tour was a great success, grossing $173.5 million in ticket sales.

However, it was drummer Tommy Lee who stole most of the headlines. After breaking his ribs before the tour, forcing him to sit out parts of the band’s early performances, Lee went viral when he proudly posted a frontal nude selfie on social media. Lee would later face criticism from concertgoers after encouraging crowds to put themselves out there during Mötley Crüe performances.

Most recently, founding guitarist Mick Mars announced his retirement from touring after more than 40 years of live performances with the band. Rob Zombie, John 5, was quickly announced as Mars’ replacement and will join the band on their 2023 world tour.
