Share This:

Godley & Creme, the English rock duo composed of Kevin Godley and Lol Creme, are the subject of a forthcoming five-CD boxed set that brings together the albums L, Ismism, Birds of Prey, Goodbye Blue Sky and a disc of extended mixes and B-sides. Titled Body of Work 1978-1988, the set will be released on Nov. 17 by Caroline International.

The pair met in the late 1950s and performed in many bands together before finding international success with 10cc. Following the recording of the band’s fourth album in 1976, the duo left 10cc to form Godley & Creme and released their first album shortly after.

The box set includes the four Godley & Creme albums the duo recorded for Polydor Records plus the disc of extras. The entire package has been mastered by Andy Pearce and approved by Godley and Creme. As well as the music, it contains a booklet and box that has been designed by Godley and features new interviews with both members of the band by journalist Daryl Easlea.
