Retro (New Order album)

From Academic Kids

Retro is a 2002 box set from the English band New Order, it comprises of four CDs. Initial quantities came with a fifth disc, featuring rare tracks.

The box set was released as a compromise. The band's manager, Rob Gretton, had originally envisioned a boxset called Recycle which would feature all the singles New Order had released, one single per CD, in a grand 20 CD box.

Gretton's vision of Recycle would feature every recorded version of every New Order track as well as unreleased material, making it the holy grail for New Order fans. Sadly, London Records deemed this a little too excessive, the idea was shelved, New Order released Get Ready and a year later Retro surfaced.

The CDs each have a particular theme: 'Pop', 'Fan', 'Club' and 'Live'. Each one is selected by a friend of the band.

There were large numbers of complaints over the ommission of the track Love Vigilantes from the CD, which were met with suggestions that it was a hiddent track, which it is not. However, convincing people that it is has become a newbie initiation procedure on many New Order fansites.
