Product Description

Product Description

After almost two decades with Island Records (as a member of both the Alan Bown Set and Vinegar Joe, and solo) and a series of hit albums and singles, Robert Palmer signed to EMI in 1988.

In June 88, hit single Simply Irresistible preceded the hit album Heavy Nova , and was followed by a Top Ten hit single, the classic She Makes My Day . Further hits followed in Change His Ways and It Could Happen To You . The bonus tracks on this expanded edition feature the two remixes of Simply Irresistible , a remix of Change His Ways , and the non-album song Nova .

Second (double) album Don t Explain followed in November 1990, preceded by the Top Ten collaboration with UB40, I ll Be Your Baby Tonight and followed by Palmer s hit homage to Marvin Gaye Mercy Mercy Me / I Want You , both also included in this release in their 12 versions. Also included are three non-album singles B-sides.

The booklet of this slip-cased 2 CD set features annotation by Alan Robinson along with the CD singles covers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice Product 15 Sep 2013
The bonus tracks on this Double CD are excellent. The remix of Mercy Mercy Me/I Want You is the bomb! I'm not sure the remastering does much for the sound quality, but it is nice to finally have the B-sides and rarities on CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! 17 Feb 2013
By Drew Hensley - Published on Amazon.com

This is a must for Robert Palmer fans especially for collectors. Palmer's first two EMI albums are in this one box; both digitally remastered with excellent sound quality and numerous bonus tracks. The new and improved Heavy Nova Plus is 17 tracks long with remixes and B-sides. Ever heard Robert sing All Shook Up, Deep End, or Mercy Mercy Me with a rapper? Well now you can. I look forward to a real box set for Robert Palmer that does justice to his career; such a set would extend from his days with the Alan Bown or the Mandrakes (if any of that material has survived) right up to 2003 when this brilliant musician unfortunately passed on. This product will make you long for the yet to be made box set. There is also a similar box set for his last two EMI albums, Ridin High & Honey Plus. The new Honey also contains rare material.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding 9 April 2013

If you are a fan of our dear, departed Robert Palmer, this is a great "twofer." I'm not sure the remastering makes a huge difference, but the set comes with a great booklet with nice liner notes and photos. Well worth buying.
