Limited edition 7-inch singles, 7 record set

A celebration of 40 years in the music business: 1975-2015

Forty years on and, as the song says, we got to get right back where we started from. That was and still is the 7-inch vinyl 45 RPM single. This traditional "album" contains seven 45s that could never fully represent the Ace story so far, but they touch on numerous aspects of what Ace has been doing all this time.

There are unissued versions, highlights from the label's career, lost gems and an error corrected, but all truly terrific music. A small jukebox worth of recordings spanning the 20 years from which the bulk of Ace releases have been drawn. It is hard to believe only 20 years separate Etta James' release for Modern from Joe Strummer's first recording made for our Chiswick label, which in turn is now nearly 40 years old.
