Motorhead unbox Ace Of Spades 40th anniversary vinyl box set

Motorhead are streaming an unboxing video for the 40th anniversary expanded box set edition of their 1980 album, “Ace Of Spades”, ahead of its release on October 30.

Presented in a Wild West dynamite box, the vinyl package includes the original record, two double-live albums, a collection of unreleased demos, outtakes and rarities, a DVD compilation of rare TV appearances from the era, a 40-page book, a 1980 tour program, the Motorhead Rock Commando comic, a set of 5 poker dice that can be played on the game board inside the box set lid, and a limited edition 7" reproduction of the Dutch single for “Ace Of Spades” that includes a previously unreleased instrumental version.

The 40th anniversary series will also be available in expanded 2CD and 3LP deluxe editions.

Motorhead’s commercial breakthrough and best-selling record featured the iconic title track, which peaked at No. 15 on the UK singles chart during the set’s original run.

The era featured the lineup of founder and bassist Lemmy Kilmister, guitarist “Fast” Eddie Clarke and drummer Phil "Philthy Animal" Taylor.
