120-Page Book - A trove of archival photos and extensive historical liner notes from founding member Robert Forster - plus additional pieces from guest essayists, fans and contemporaries.

Silkscreen reproduction of the promotional poster for a contemporaneous show from that era.

G Stands For Go-Betweens Volume 2 captures the band’s output from 1985 through 1989 and includes the first vinyl re-pressings of the three mid-period studio albums in over thirty years (Liberty Belle And The Black Diamond Express, Tallulah and 16 Lovers Lane), all re-mastered from the original analogue tapes. G Stands For Go-Betweens Volume 2 also includes an eighteen-song double album of the band performing live at London’s legendary Town and Country Club on May 10th, 1987, on the cusp of the release of Tallulah. Additionally, the set comes with five compact discs of their b-sides, radio sessions and rare, hard-to-find and unreleased demos, including a collection of 28 demos that McLennan and Forster recorded with their old ally, Tony Cohen, intended for what was supposed to be the group’s seventh album before the band’s split at the end of the Eighties. Though some of these songs would materialize on solo albums soon after, this will mark the first official release for many of these rare gems.
