"Retro" is a 2002 box set of music by the English band New Order. It comprises four themed CDs. In the UK, initial quantities came with a fifth disc which featured rare tracks.

History

The box set was released as a compromise. The band's manager, Rob Gretton, had originally envisioned a box set called "Recycle", which would feature all the singles New Order had released, one single per CD, in a grand 20 CD box.

Gretton's vision of "Recycle" would feature every recorded version of every New Order track as well as unreleased material, making it the holy grail for New Order fans. However, London Records deemed this as too excessive, and the idea was shelved. New Order released "Get Ready" in 2001 and a year later "Retro" surfaced.

The CDs each have a particular theme: "Pop", "Fan", "Club" and "Live". Each one was selected by a friend of the band.
