Motley Crue are to release their first five albums in a new box set, Crucial Crue: The Studio Albums 1981-1989. The albums were previously collected together as a 40th anniversary cassette box for Record Store Day in 2021, but this will be the first time the set will be available on vinyl and CD.

The five vinyl albums will come in five fancy colour variants, detailed as follows.

Too Fast For Love: White/Black Splatter
Shout At The Devil: Yellow/Black Splatter
Theater Of Pain: Hot Pink Magenta/Black Splatter
Girls, Girls, Girls: Cyan Blue / Black Splatter
Dr Feelgood: Coke Bottle Green / Oxblood Splatter

The albums will be housed in a black slipcase with foil lettering, but there doesn't seem to be any other literature or memorabilia included. The set will be released on February 17, and is available to pre-order now. Full tracklist below.
