The re-release of Ant’s back catalogue by Esoteric Recordings continues with Private Parts & Pieces I – IV, a five CD deluxe clamshell box set containing the first four albums in the Private Parts & Pieces series (Private Parts & Pieces, Back To The Pavilion, Antiques and A Catch At The Tables) together with Private Parts & Extra Pieces, an additional 18-track CD of previously unreleased material recorded between 1975 and 1983.

Beginning in 1978, the first four volumes featured an extensive range of music recorded by Ant for various projects (going back as far as 1972) and have come to be regarded by fans as essential collections of his wide and diverse compositional work.  The set includes a lavish booklet with an essay and fully restores the artwork of the original vinyl releases.

Private Parts & Pieces I – IV is due for release on 28th August and is available to pre-order now from Cherry Red and Amazon.

The set includes a lavish booklet with an essay by Jonathan Dann and fully restores the artwork of the original vinyl releases.
