The Pretenders The Vinyl Collection 1979-1999 on Limited Edition Import 180g 9LP Box Set

Definitive Collection of the Pretenders’ Recordings Issued Under the Warners Bros. Banner from 1979 to 1999!

Eight classic albums from The Pretenders are collected together in this limited edition 9LP box set for the first time. All albums are pressed on 180g heavyweight black vinyl, two for the first time on the format (The Isle Of View and Viva El Amor!). The albums included are: Pretenders (1980), Pretenders II (1981), Learning to Crawl (1984), Get Close (1986), Packed! (1990), Last of the Independents (1994), The Isle of View (2LP) (1995) and Viva El Amor! (1999).

English-American rock band The Pretenders were originally formed in 1978 with singer Chrissie Hynde on vocals, Pete Farndon on bass, James Honeyman-Scott on guitar and Martin Chambers on drums. They released two LPs, Pretenders – which charted at #1 in the UK and #9 in the States - and Pretenders II, and one EP, Extended Play. The band enjoyed worldwide chart success with singles like "Stop Your Sobbing," "Kid," "Brass In Pocket," "Talk of The Town" and "I Go To Sleep." 

In 1982 the band parted ways with Pete Farndon followed swiftly by the death of James Honeyman-Scott. Pete’s death came a year later. Subsequently the band’s line-up remained fluid and the band went on to release the albums Learning to Crawl, Get Close and Packed! between 1984 and 1990. After a 4-year hiatus came the band’s next release Last of the Independents, followed in 1995 by Isle of View, a live acoustic album recorded over two nights in London with the Duke String Quartet. 1999 saw the release of Viva El Amor!, the last album to be released on longtime label Warner Bros. Records. Neil Young inducted the Pretenders into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame in 2005.
