Product Description

Product Description

In 1985, singer/songwriter Suzanne Vega released her stunning self-titled debut album. 25 years and 7 million albums sold later, Suzanne is widely regarded as one of the most brilliant songwriters of her generation. Suzanne reinterpreted a majority of her catalogue in a close and personal manner, creating 4 new thematic albums that were released over 2010-2012. Now Suzanne has combined all 4CD's from the Close-Up series in a hardcover book with 68 pages of photos, and lyrics, including photos taken by Suzanne. The book also contains an extra CD with all of the bonus tracks previously only available separately and or digitally. Suzanne has also included a DVD of her Close-Up show at City Winery in New York City, which has live acoustic versions of some of fans favourite songs as well as some songs you have never heard live before. The DVD also features a backstage interview and some behind the scenes footage of rehearsal for the show.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb package 20 Aug 2014

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a beautiful set; the recordings are outstanding and bring out the quality of Suzanne's songwriting. The sequencing and thematic choice of songs work well to make each disc a coherent album. In addition to the four original Close Up albums the package includes excellent bonus material and the presentation of the set is superb. Excellent value for money and a collection to treasure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! A Major Treat for All Vega Fans 17 Aug 2014
By Cosmosplace - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Exquisitely packaged, like a dream holiday present in the summer--here are all the volumes of Vega's esteemed Close-Up series in gorgeous binding (it's a substantial 7 x 7)...very beautiful, colorful, artful (lots of great photos on high-quality paper)...the live DVD with interview is another treat. This is something to treasure...sonically, visually, tactilely.
