Lemmy denounces reissue box set
2012-12-09 by Voivod STAFF | 55 Comments

Rock icon and Motorhead leader Lemmy has recently denounced the release of a box set from Sanctuary Records, containing the first eight records of the band.

Although Motorhead had initially succeeded in blocking the release, it seems that Sanctuary Records found a way to bypass the conviction of the band.


In Lemmy's own words:

Unfortunately greed once again rears its yapping head. I would advise against it even for the most rabid completists! Motörhead have no control over what’s done with these early songs, and don’t want fans to think that the band is involved in putting out such a costly box set.

"Greed has prevailed once again. My advise, even to those who are self-proclaiming themselves as
"dedicated collectors", is not to buy the box set. I'm literally annoyed by its high price, since most
people cannot afford it."

Well how fucking much is it? I bought the entire DBZ saga box set from Best Buy for $75 so there's no
fucking way it can be more than that.

Yeah, but even if you don't absolutely worship the guy, if you look at the fact that he's been around for so long and is still this kind of bad-a**, then you have to at least give him a little respect.

haha I really appreciate the cynicism over the "literally annoyed" thing from all of you guys, but I was writing this item at 05.00 am (Greece time), hence the minor errors and the slightly weird translation from the Greek text.

Anyway, Lemmy's statement is revised (see second source link).

On another note, the second source link cites that the box set costs $600, while the Amazon price is $511.

Are these guys in Sanctuary Records for real?? hahahah

I don't know how many CDs are in the box set, but Motorhead appears to have 21 albums in their discography. At $511, that's $24/CD. Not too expensive
