Before making his eleven albums, Peter Murphy founded Bauhaus. After the band’s breakup in 1983, he teamed up with Japan’s former bass player Mick Karn to form Dali’s Car. Beggars Arkive is excited to announce a 5-disc box set celebrating his first five albums: Should The World Fail to Fall Apart/Love Hysteria/Deep/Holy Smoke and Cascade. The box, capturing the first ten years, is simply titled Peter Murphy 5 Albums and it will be released on June 22nd.

Each album features bonus tracks comprising of period rarities including original demos, single B-sides, early and alternate mixes and many previously unreleased recordings Including “Critic’s Choice”, “Groovy Place”, “Sail On White” and a full band take on “Cool Cool Breeze”.

This set also features many production roughs of Peter’s final album for Beggars Banquet, the sublime Cascade, including a stunning seven minute + early take of the title track, appearing here under its working title of “Satin Nights”.
