Wham!’s Fantastic and Make It Big albums to be reissued on vinyl
The LPs, available on both limited edition colour and black vinyl, will be available from 22 March 2024 and can be pre-ordered here.
Of the release, Andrew Ridgeley said: “It’s a wonderful testament to the enduring nature of Wham!’s music that our legions of loyal fans and the younger cohorts of music fans desire to own the music in their original formats.”
George Michael Entertainment added: “We are delighted that these two classic albums are once again available on vinyl for a whole new generation to enjoy.”
Fantastic debuted at No.1 in the UK, sold millions of copies worldwide, and hits such as Bad Boys, Wham Rap! (Enjoy What You Do) and Club Tropicana, catapulted the duo to global stardom.
Their follow-up release, Make It Big, which will celebrate its 40-year anniversary this year, included the smash singles Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go, Everything She Wants and Freedom.
The release follows a huge year for the duo who released their special Wham! The Singles: Echoes From The Edge Of Heaven boxset, unveiled a Netflix documentary, and finally scored a Christmas No.1 for Last Christmas.
