Comments to album Various - Blackbox - Wax Trax! Records: The First 13 Years.
deadly claw
A note on some of the mixes on this release:"Beers, Steers & Queers" is the "Drop Your Britches Mix.""Violent Peace" is the "Bitchmix""Digital Tension" should actually be titled "Digital Tension Dementia" and is the album version from Gashed Senses & Crossfire."Now Is The Time" is called the "Extended Mix" but runs shorter than the regular version, for some bizarre reason."What Time Is Love?" has been called the "Live at Trancentral" version on newer releases.
Forey
This needs a vinyl release. This set is a total classic
Just_paw
I believe the reason there's no 242 is because Sony owned the rights to their back catalog material at the time.
Fast Lovebird
@ fyuw4cher They weren't allowed to use any material by Front242 as a result of some licensing issues after wax trax went bankrupt. The Black Box was put out by TVT after they purchased Wax Trax. I would assume that Play It Again Sam records owned the rights to the 242 catalog, as they were in a partnership with Wax Trax.
Granijurus
I never get sick of listening to this excellent collection of early industrial and raunchy favorites. One thing I can't figure out is how they can devote 6 of the 78 pages to Front 242, and go so far as to state that "Front X Front" is their best selling release to date, yet neglect to include them on any of the three discs.
Runemane
Might be pointless replying to a 10 year old comment but if anyone in the future is curious: Front 242 were absent because Epic records recently acquired the rights to their music at the time of the compilation and wouldn't give any permission. A glaring absence it is; thanks a lot Epic...
