Def Leppard have announced that they will be going back to their beginnings with the release of their new box set "The Early Years 79-81", on March 20th.

The 5-disc set will feature remastered versions of their first two studio albums "On Through The Night" (1980) and "High 'N' Dry" (1981), remastered, B-sides, rarities and re-mix versions, Radio One sessions, "Live From Reading" and the first-ever appearance of an unreleased and newly mixed show from Oxford in 1980, according to the announcement.

Frontman Joe Elliott had this to say, "Well, the fans asked, and we listened! Really excited to have our early years reworked with a load of rare material including the newly unearthed 'Live At The Oxford New Theatre', recorded on the 1980 U.K. tour .... It's been a trip putting this boxset together and I hope you all enjoy listening to it as much as we did working on it!"

In addition to the box set, both studio albums will be offered as remastered single CD, on black LP and limited edition colored vinyl. See the box set tracklisting and listen to the Nick Tauber-produced version of "Rock Brigade" here.
