A 65 track 4 CD box set rounding up all of Rockabilly Revival band Matchbox’s recordings for Magnet Records between 1979 and 1982.

• Disc 1 is their self-titled debut for the label which reached No. 44 in the UK chart. It contains the hit singles ‘Rockabilly Rebel’ (No.18) and ‘Buzz Buzz A Diddle It’ (No.22) as well as the non-charting ‘Black Slacks’. Now comes with four bonus tracks including two recorded under the name of Cyclone.

• The second disc is 1980’s “Midnite Dynamos” album which reached No.23 in the British charts. The title track gave the band a No.14 hit single and the album also includes the No.4 smash ‘When You Ask About Love’. The eight bonus cuts include the No.15 hit ‘Over The Rainbow/You Belong To Me’ as well as two ultra-rare Japanese only singles, ‘I’m A Lover Man’ and ‘Little Lonely Girl’.

• Disc 3 is the “Flying Colours” album which contained the hit singles ‘Babe’s In The Wood’ (No.46) and ‘Love’s Made A Fool Of You’ (No.63).

• The final disc is the 1982 LP “Crossed Line”, released here on CD for the first time. It features the No.63 hit single ‘One More Saturday Night’ plus their collaboration with the late Kirsty MacColl on ‘I Want Out’.

• Housed in a sturdy clam shell box, each disc comes in a card wallet depicting the original LP art on the front. The 20 page booklet comes complete with in-depth liner notes plus pictures of all relevant singles sleeves and memorabilia.
