As previously covered here on The Rock Father, THE BREEDERS will release a special 20th Anniversary Edition of their landmark album, LAST SPLASH. LSXX will hit stores on April 23 as a limited-edition, seven-disc vinyl box set, and a three-CD deluxe set. Artwork for this package was crafted by British artist Vaughan Oliver, who described it as “an irreverent conceptual and visual re-imagining” of his original LAST SPLASH design. So what’s in the box?

The vinyl box set includes:

* a 12-inch vinyl pressing of Last Splash (the original recording, not remixed or remastered)
* four 10-inch EPs – Safari, Cannonball, Divine Hammer, and Head to Toe
