Listing Detail Tabs

The Stranglers revisit their early days with ‘The Classic Collection’ reissue series.

The campaign sees Rhino Records reissue expanded CD editions of all of their early albums, from their 1977 debut ‘Rattus Norvegicus’ through to 1981’s ‘La Folie’. Each release in ‘The Classic Collection’ features the original album alongside special bonus tracks, which include non-album singles, b-sides and select rarities. The Gospel According to The Meninblack (or sometimes referred to as just The Meninblack) is the fifth album by The Stranglers. The album is an elaboration of concepts first introduced by the band on the aforementioned track from their preceding LP, The Raven.
