About This Box

These classic rock icons are characterised by a sense of experimentation, creativity, and innovation, as artists and audiences alike sought to push the boundaries of what was possible in popular music.

What you’ll be listening to...

Your box will include a handpicked selection of two or three albums from this collection:

The Joker

Steve Miller Band

The Joker

Steve Miller Band

The Joker is the eighth studio album by Steve Miller Band. The album was recorded at Capitol Studios and released by Capitol Records in October 1973.

The album marked a period of significant change for the group as the band abandoned their psychedelic-oriented music for a more melodic, smooth rock/blues sound. It was also their first solid commercial success due to the strong radio-play of the title track. 

The album reached No. 2 on the Billboard Top LPs & Tape chart and has been certified Platinum in the United States. It reached No. 1 on the Cash Box Albums Charts on January 8, 1974.

The Velvet Undergound & Nico

We here at VinylBox would argue anyone to the ground who says there is a cooler, more iconic 1960s album than the Velvet Underground's self-titled release. When the Velvets recorded this debut, they were best known as the protégées of Andy Warhol (who designed the sleeve), and as a grating, combustive live band.

Fuelled by drummer Moe Tucker's no-nonsense wham and John Cale's howling viola, some of the straight-up rock and roll and arty noise extravaganzas here bear that out.

But before Lou Reed was singing about sadomasochism and drug deals and writing lyrics inspired by his favourite poets, he was a pop songwriter, and this album has some of his prettiest tunes, mostly sung by Nico, the German dark angel who left the band after this album. Even the sordid rockers are underscored by graceful pop tricks, like the two-chord flutter at the centre of the classic 'Heroin'. 

Truly essential listening.

Mixing Colours

Mixing Colours

Products Brain Eno

Roger Eno and Brian Eno – together and individually among the foremost innovators in experimental ambient music – release their first album on Deutsche Grammophon: Mixing Colours.

Brian and Roger Eno have revolutionised many concepts of music production and performance, from pioneering treatments of pop music by Brian Eno to younger brother Roger Eno’s ambient synth/piano recordings reminiscent of Erik Satie.

The result is deep-dive listening and landscapes of sound bearing titles like abstract art: Obsidian, Deep Saffron, or Wintergreen. This debut DG release will reach a wide new audience still unfamiliar with their artistry. The poetic and ambient anthology reveals two celebrated ambient musicians at the height of their artistry.

David Bowie

David Bowie's 1967 debut album for decca finally receives the deluxe edition treatment. Disc one features the original stereo and mono mixes of the album stunningly remastered by Peter Mew and Tris Penna at abbey road studios.

Musically, the album displays a baroque pop and music hall sound influenced by Anthony Newley and the Edwardian styles of contemporary British rock bands. The songs are primarily led by orchestral brass and woodwind instruments rather than traditional instruments in pop music at the time, although some tracks feature guitar. 

The lyrics are short-story narratives that range from lighthearted to dark, discussing themes from childhood innocence, to drug use and totalitarianism. Iconic and timeless, this album is a a must have.

A Saucerful Of Secrets

Pink Floyd

A Saucerful Of Secrets

Pink Floyd

The band's second album, originally released in 1968, was the first album to feature David Gilmour, who replaced Syd Barrett on guitar and vocals.

It is both the last Pink Floyd album on which Syd Barrett appeared and the only studio album to which all five band members contributed. This is Pink Floyd in transition from Barrett's psychedelic whimsy to the style of their epic pieces. Classic tracks include 'Jugband Blues' and 'Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun'.

Roger Taylor


Roger Taylor

Outsider is the latest solo album from rock legend Queen's Roger Taylor. With much of Outsider recorded during lockdown, this new album finds Taylor in a reflective mood.

Across the record he conveys a palpable sense of seclusion, concerns over the passing of time, and tellingly, dedicates it “to all the outsiders, those who feel left on the sidelines”. A highly personal project, Outsider’s instrumentation is almost entirely performed by Taylor, with his largely restrained vocals matching the album’s contemplative ambience. 

But Taylor does cut loose along the way with a foray into some hard-riffing blues-rock as well as an adrenalin charged big surprise retread of a classic 1965 novelty song, which is exactly the fun on earth we needed in these challenging times.

Issued in November 1969, To Our Children’s Children’s Children was the first album release by the Moody Blues on their own label, Threshold Records. Regarded as one of the finest of their so-called “classic seven” albums, the record covered conceptual themes such as space exploration (as the sessions took place as the Apollo 11 moon landing occurred). With such classic tracks as “Watching and Waiting”, “Gypsy”, “Beyond” and “Eternity Road”, the album was a number 2 hit in the UK and reached Gold status in the USA.
