To celebrate the 40th anniversary of their formation in Stockport in '72, we are very excited to officially announce the release of Tenology, a five disc box set by era - defining pop maestros 10cc.

Hotlegs was a short-lived English band best known for its hit single "Neanderthal Man" in 1970. The band consisted of Eric Stewart, Kevin Godley, Lol Creme and - briefly - Graham Gouldman. In 1972 the band was relaunched as 10cc. The album was reissued on Grapefruit Records a division of Cherry Red in October of 2012. Remastered by Paschal Byrne the current version includes "Thinks School Stinks" album as originally sequenced with the tracks that were substituted/added for "You Didn't Like It Because You Didn't Think Of It" at the end of the CD including the slightly different alternate U.S. single mix of "Neanderthal Man". This new edition also featured new artwork commissioned especially for this release.
Originally released in 1964 and 1965 on the Fontana label. Included among the ranks of The Mindbenders were future 10cc members Eric Stewart (at the time of these recordings) on guitar and vocals, and later (1968) Graham Gouldman on bass. For straightforward solid meat'n'potatoes British Beat, one need look no further than Wayne Fontana & The Mindbenders. What they lacked in originality they more than made up for in good old-fashioned exuberance and panache.

The 2008 nine-disc box Albums is neither the first ABBA multi-disc set nor the first time the pop group's albums have been collected and housed in a box set, but it is the first time a set of their complete recordings has been widely disseminated (such are the perks of being a companion to an international blockbuster) and it's the best of the lot, containing all eight of the group's albums (for the record: Ring Ring, Waterloo, ABBA, Arrival, The Album, Voulez-Vous, Super Trouper, The Visitors), plus a 17-track rarities disc that rounds up non-LP singles (including "Fernando" and "Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)"), songs sung in Swedish, and plain oddities like a medley of the American folk songs "Pick a Bale of Cotton," "On Top of Old Smokey," and "Midnight Special."
