The Story So Far...The Best Of Def Leppard - News Quote

"Def Leppard, Britain’s greatest arena rock band, are set to release The Story So Far… an album of the bands greatest hits and songs from their illustrious career. This set includes the previously unreleased Personal Jesus available for the first time on CD.

Having sold over 65 million albums worldwide since their debut release in 1980 and proved themselves one of rock music’s hardest working and consistently powerful live bands (playing to over 50 million fans in the last 15 years alone).

Def Leppard remain one of only five rock groups who can claim two separate original 10 million plus selling albums in the US (Pyromania being one of them). The others are The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and Van Halen.

The newly mastered set is available in 3 formats 2-CD/1-CD/2-LP which features a free 7” single with Personal Jesus and a brand-new song (only available physically on this format) We All Need Christmas.
