The Tragically Hip release Fully Completely vinyl box set

The Tragically Hip has just released a vinyl box set edition of their 1992 classic, “Fully Completely”, in honor of the album’s 30th anniversary.

Originally issued in 2014 as a Deluxe CD Edition, the October 7 release marks the first time the box set is presented as a three-piece vinyl set; it features all the elements from the original package, including the “Fully Completely” original album, the “Live at the Horseshoe September 13, 1992” recording, with bonus studio session tracks “Radio Show” and “So Hard Done By,” plus a 56-page book and five exclusive lithographs by cover artist Lieve Prins. The set also includes a Blu-ray of brand-new Dolby Atmos and surround sound mixes of the record, and a newly remastered from the original film, “Heksenketel,” the 1993 Another Roadside Attraction tour documentary.

Produced by Chris Tsangarides (Depeche Mode, Killing Joke, Concrete Blonde) and recorded at Battery Studios in London, UK, the band’s third album – which featured singles like "Locked in the Trunk of a Car,” "Courage" (For Hugh McLennan), "At the Hundredth Meridian," "Fifty Mission Cap," and “Wheat Kings” – went on to sell almost two million copies in Canada.

The “Fully Completely” deluxe vinyl edition is the first in a series of vinyl album re-releases for The Tragically Hip, with plans to reissue the compilation, “Yer Favourites”, and a new box set for the 25th anniversary of "Phantom Power", in 2023.

Formed in Kingston, ON in 1984, The Tragically Hip issued 13 studio albums to huge success in their homeland, earning an unprecedented 16 Juno Awards, and inductions into both the Canadian Music Hall Of Fame and Canada’s Walk Of Fame.

The Tragically Hip retired in 2017 following the passing of singer Gord Downie at the age of 53 after a lengthy battle with terminal brain cancer.
