Front 242 - Geography

In today's #WaxTraxFriday feature we're going right back to the beginning with Front 242's first album Geography. The album was originally released in 1982 on several different labels, reissued in 1987/1988, remastered and reissued in 1992, remastered and reissued again in 2004 and finally issued as a deluxe limited edition box set in 2016 - collectors should look out for the pre 87/88 releases especially those without barcodes. Wax Trax! Records released the album in the USA in 1987 after signing the band for the American market - vinyl LP, cassette and CD were the formats of choice. The definitive version to get is the Alfa Matrix 32 track remastered edition from 2004 either as the limited edition double CD or FLAC digital download via Bandcamp.
