X The Masterpiece Collection on Numbered Limited Edition 180g 4LP Box Set

Three decades after the inception of X, one thing is clear: X was not only one of the most influential bands to crash out of the punk movement of the late ‘70s, but the band’s music continues to be sonically groundbreaking today. Songs written during the group’s inception are as relevant and inventive today as they were in 1977. The fact is, no one sounds like X and no one ever will.

The band’s early albums, Los Angeles (1980), produced by Ray Manzarek of the Doors, Wild Gift (1981), and Under the Big Black Sun (1982) explored dark love and an even darker L.A. with the unflinching eye of a Raymond Chandler novel. As they released each ensuing album, More Fun in the New World (1983) and Ain’t Love Grand (1985), the band continued to grow sonically and politically, fearlessly mixing genres without ever losing its center. 

After over two years in development Porterhouse Records is proud to announce an epic new X release. The Masterpiece Collection is a limited edition hand numbered box set which contains the band's first four albums: Los Angeles, Wild Gift, Under the Big Black Sun, and More Fun in the New World. Each album in the set has been painstakingly re-mastered and pressed on 180 gram vinyl and includes all original artwork.

In addition, the box set contains a 20 page booklet which details the making of these acclaimed albums in the band's own words. Containing over 45 never before seen photos and written accolades from X contemporaries Tommy Stinson, Penelope Spherris and Dave Alvin, the jewel of the set is the foreword written by X producer Ray Manzarek. Ray's foreword represents his final written account of his relationship with X and the making of these historic recordings.

The Masterpiece Collection box set features a giant gold foil X logo and only 1500 copies of this hand numbered box set are available. Every element of this release, from re-mastering to artwork has been personally overseen by the members of X.
