Sade This Far 180g Vinyl 6LP Box Set

This Far 180g Vinyl 6LP Box Set Features All Six Sade Studio Albums Through 2020: Half-Speed Mastered by Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios with Oversight from Band

Sony Music's special new vinyl 6LP box set, This Far, features remastered versions of all of Sade's studio albums to date, on pure 180-gram heavyweight vinyl. The box set delivers the first complete collection of their studio work up to the present day. All six of the band's acclaimed albums: Diamond Life (1984), Promise (1985), Stronger Than Pride (1988), Love Deluxe (1992), Lovers Rock (2000), and Soldier Of Love (2010) come packaged in a beautifully finished, white casebound box.

The close band of four: Sade (vocals), Stuart Matthewman (saxophone/guitar), Andrew Hale (keyboards), and Paul Spencer Denman (bass), were intimately involved in the process, spending time at Abbey Road Studios alongside acclaimed mastering engineer Miles Showell, and the band's longtime co-producer Mike Pela. The box set title, This Far, suggests that the band's studio work may not yet be fully complete, but this new highly collectable release brings together a canon of work previously difficult to source in its original format.

Revisiting the audio, the band and Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios worked from high resolution digital transfers of the stereo master mixes, from the original studio recordings, remastered at half-speed using Miles' own unique restored Neumann VMS80 cutting lathe, to perform the 12 sides of vinyl lacquer cuts. The elaborate, half-speed mastering process produced exceptionally clean and detailed audio whilst remaining faithful to the band's intended sound.

No additional digital limiting was used in the mastering process, so the six albums benefit from the advantage of extra clarity and pure fidelity, preserving the dynamic range of the original mixes for the very first time. The six album sleeves have been meticulously reproduced in exact detail with authentic paper and printing methods, perfectly replicated for the first time since their original release, and assembled in the outer box which was designed by Tom Hingston Studios in London.

Over an exceptional career spanning more than three decades, Sade's six albums have amassed a cool 60 million worldwide sales and have been certified platinum 24 times over. Producing singles such as "Your Love Is King," "Smooth Operator," and "By Your Side," Sade have gone on to achieve No. 1 albums across the world, collected several Grammys and a BRIT Award along the way, quietly taking their "place in the pantheon of cultural influence" [New York Times, October 2017]. Their most recent studio album, Soldier Of Love, charted at number one in 15 countries, including the US, upon release in 2010.

A true testament to a body of work that through its evolution has captured hearts irrespective of age or creed, Sade's box set delivers and celebrates the band's legacy this far in a pure vinyl format.
