About this collection

Introducing 80's Rewind

After the sombre austerity of the punk and post-punk styles of the late 70s, British pop brightened up and became positively kaleidoscopic in the 1980s when an incredibly varied range of artists emerged. The decade saw everything from pop bands and guitar-led groups to soulful sounds and stadium rock, and of course, a whole lotta synthesiser.

"I received my box today and was completely thrilled! Such a great selection, love the quality of the information included in the box and the postcards are a great touch. Have already recommend to friends!"

Ida Weatherall

"Good selection of vinyl, all new and packaged well. The art cards received are nice doubling up as post cards on the back. Value for money is tip top too and would recommend as a means of finding new music and broadening your collection."

Dan Robinson

"So happy with everything. I ordered one of the collections as a gift and it all went swimmingly. The delivery was as promised and the surprise of the actual records was such fun. My friend loved them! What a great idea for a gift."
