Tony Visconti will be celebrated with a new career-spanning 4CD/6LP set, Produced By Tony Visconti, released on 20 October.

The legendary producer has curated the 77-track (with 60 & 14 on vinyl) compilation, pulling together classics from David Bowie, T.Rex, U2, Dexys, Joe Cocker and many more, alongside gems from The Good, The Bad & The Queen, Thin Lizzy, The Radiators, Zaine Griff, Gentle Giant, Manic Street Preachers and more from Tony’s 50 years behind the desk.

Of the set, Tony says, “This boxset covers five and a half decades of my efforts in the art of making iconic recordings. Some of it is familiar and some will have a eureka moment, ‘I didn’t know Visconti produced that one!’”

Widely recognised as one of the most important producers of the rock age, Tony has helped create countless classic musical moments and continues to inspire generations of musicians and producers. In September 2016, Kingston University opened Visconti Studio, a tape-based recording studio in partnership with Visconti, the British Library and the Science Museum.

Produced By Tony Visconti will be released in strictly limited edition signed deluxe 4CD and 6LP boxsets and standard 4CD and 2LP sets. The 4CD set is housed in a deluxe 80-page casebound book and the 6LP set is housed in a deluxe slipcase with a 60-page (12×12) booklet, with previously unseen photographs, an introduction by Tony, extensive track-by-track liner notes by author and journalist Mark Paytress (including track-by-track commentaries by Tony), and tributes from a selection of featured artists.
