The best coloured vinyl box sets you can buy right now (July 2018)

What's better than vinyl? Boxes stuffed full with coloured vinyl, that's what. With that in mind, we've scoured the internets to bring you the best selection of multi-coloured wax. Whether you're after a slab of B.B. King on blue, goth-tinged hues from the heart of Gothenburg, or rainbow-spanning Queen platters, we've got you covered.

We'll be updating this list monthly, so be sure to check back. Otherwise, head straight to the sites to browse their vinyl sections in the meantime.

Queen - Complete Studio Album Vinyl Collection box set


The sheer ostentatiousness of this entire luxury-priced combo is what makes it so essential. That and the fact it includes Keep Yourself Alive, Brighton Rock, BoRap, Tie Your Mother Down, Hammer To Fall et al, all pressed in different colours, plus a big old book, 320kbps download codes and loads of surplus cardboard to sicken and crush your less affluent friends. Bottom line: it’s a truly magnificent chunk of kit, but nowhere near as dazzling, breathtaking and desirable as the timeless genius that’s pressed into its glorious grooves.
