2013 marks the 40th birthday of the Virgin record label, one of the most consistently ground-breaking and innovative record companies of all time. The anniversary is being celebrated with five highly desirable new retrospective collections containing all of the major creative and commercial landmarks in the history of Virgin Records.

‘Losing Our Virginity’ pays tribute to the label’s opening releases and stops off at all the important artists and tracks of its pre-punk years. These were the days when Virgin hosted much of the most pioneering progressive work of the 1970s and was also home to some other truly maverick talents. From Krautrock to prog, avant-rock to pioneering synth-rock, ‘Losing Our Virginity’ is a fascinating journey through the birth of a legend.
