Ongoing History Daily: Yet another version of The Hip’s Fully Completely

The most popular album in the Tragically Hip catalogue is Fully Completely from 1992. It’s sold well over a million copies in Canada along and features some of the band’s best-known songs. We’ve already had one special box set release back in 2014 and there’s another one coming to mark the 30th in October. This time, it’s a vinyl reissue that will include all kinds of bonus material, including a 56-page book. The release date is October 7.

But wait! There’s more! This is just the first of a series of vinyl reissues which will include the Yer Favourites greatest hits collection as well as a box set for Phantom Power. There’s also plenty of material in the archives so Hip fans can look forward to these sorts of releases for years to come.

  • I bought this in 2014 and was pissed they didn’t include the 2 bonus tracks on the vinyl version. It also came with a download, the download was only the 2 bonus tracks and not the full album. Not so fully completely after all.
