A Cinderella CD box set is to be released later this month.

Cinderella: The Mercury Years will bring together all four of the band’s studio albums: 1986’s Night Songs, 1988’s Long Cold Winter, 1990’s Heartbreak Station and 1994’s Still Climbing.

A fifth disc featuring b-sides and live cuts will also be included in the set.

The collection has been put together in collaboration with Cinderella vocalist and guitarist Tom Keifer and will be housed in a clamshell box. It’ll contain a 16-page booklet featuring a new interview with Keifer by journalist Malcolm Dome, where they discuss the band’s history and legacy.

The box set will be released on CD on September 28th via Caroline International and has been mastered from the original tapes – where available – by Andy Pearce.

Night Songs features classic Cinderella tracks including Nobody’s Fool, Shake Me and Somebody Save Me, while their more blues-orientated second album Long Cold Winter included Gypsy Road and Don’t Know What You Got (Till It’s Gone).

Heartbreak Station sold more than one million copies and was certified platinum and entered the US album charts at no. 19. Still Climbing was originally scheduled to launch in 1991, but was delayed until the winter of 1994.

    I remember seeing Cinderella for the first time back in ’86 opening for DLR at MSG, has it really been 32 years since? Wow. Anyway, even though I have their first 3 albums, I like Cinderella, and I like box sets, so I’ll probably pick this up.

      I agree, Doug! I, too, enjoy box sets! Cinderella is a fantastic blues based rock band. I think they have a hard rockin’ element to them, though they often get misclassified as “hair metal”. Tom Keifer is a great talent, he reminds me of another great, Steven Tyler. The music on Night Songs is much heavier than as portrayed by that glam lookin’ album cover. And I, like you, will pick it up even though I, too, have the first three albums!

    I’m not a big fan of box sets, but this one from Cinderella is pretty interesting. Cinderella always gets put down as “hair metal”, but they were always more of blues/ hard rock band than a metal band. It was probably the cover of Night Songs, and the video for “Don’t Know What You Got till its Gone” that caused that. I sort of put them in the same box as Tesla, as far as their music goes. I have a greatest hits record for them, but I may pick this up.

    Saw Cinderella open for AC/DC in the 80’s at the Boston Garden in on the Blow Up Your Video Tour. Man Time flies. Really hate that they get lumped in with all of of the other 80’s bands. A lot of their stuff stands the test of time… Which is why Keifer is able to keep doing what he does as a solo artist today.

      That sounds like an excellent combo, very fitting.

      I saw Cinderella, and Extreme, open for David Lee Roth, great show.
