2015 saw the 20th anniversary of The Leaf Label. To mark the occasion we embarked on a journey. It started with a (relatively) simple idea to create a vinyl box set featuring ten landmark albums from across the back catalogue. What could possibly go wrong?
Fast forward almost exactly a year from its announcement and we have finally shipped the orders made via Pledge Music at the end of last year. It’s fair to say we overcame a number of obstacles in our quest to manufacture vinyl to the high standard you've come to expect from Leaf. We’re a little greyer and a little wiser, and we won’t be rushing into creating another box set extravaganza any time soon...
If you missed out on our Pledge campaign but would like to purchase one of the remaining copies of the Leaf 20 box set, you’re in luck. We will be making them available to order again, through The Leaf Label shop while stocks last. In addition, we are making available some leftover copies of the individual albums, pressed on white vinyl for the box sets. These will be released through the Leaf shop, through our Discogs store, and where appropriate on the artists’ individual Bandcamp pages, shipping out on or before November 21st.
The Leaf 20 box is comprised of fourteen pieces of pristine white vinyl in full artwork and wrapped in bespoke, hand-printed paper covers, accompanied by the ten albums on CD, plus a fold out catalogue artwork poster, a limited edition print, and liner notes by acclaimed writer and journalist Rob Young. Painstakingly curated and assembled by label founder Tony Morley in collaboration with Leeds design studio Split, this is the finest Leaf document money can buy. Get more information here

The Comet Is Coming. Planet Earth has completed 56% of its regular journey around the Sun since Channel The Spirits was released.

True believers spread the word.
