Late Night FDL: Grand Illusion

Styx – Grand Illusion

Styx is releasing a new box set of their oldies…

8-disc vinyl pack features releases from 1975 to 1984

A box set containing eight Styx albums on heavyweight 180g vinyl is to be released on July 17.

The A&M Years 1975-1984 will be issued by USM and features the studio albums Equinox (1975), Crystal Ball (1976), The Grand Illusion (1977), Pieces Of Eight (1978), Cornerstone (1979), Paradise Theatre (1981) and Kilroy Was Here (1983), along with 1984 double live album Caught In The Act.

Last month, Styx mainman Tommy Shaw insisted they wouldn’t be rushed into recording a new album, despite saying they had “stuff in the works.”

He said: “I’m writing some stuff for what will be more like an Americana solo album. We’re also working on some new Styx music – just taking our time with it. We don’t really have any plans to release an album, but there’s stuff in the works.”

They released Styx Live At The Orleans Arena Las Vegas in May on DVD and are currently on tour.

What’s on your mind tonite…?
