Format: Audio CD
The first single "Cambodia" is here in all it's glory as the pouted one sings "Well he was Thailand based,she was an airforce wife"what an amazing line about war torn lost love,from The Wilde composing co,they should have got an Ivor Novello, just marvell at the breathtaking profoundness of the whole song,not one to be found in the Syco Cowell stable,they probably can't spell Cambodia,it doesn't begin with a £ sign! Then you have the second single just a pure piece of 80's pop magic in the fantasticness which is "View From A Bridge"as Kim retells the tale of"A cheap love magazine & not taking all the frolics of her man with someone else" well why ever shoul you Kim,go on kick him in to touch,you sure were a feisty girl back in 1982!
The highlights of this album are "Just A Feeling" which has Kim singing with such gutsy emotion,which should have found it's way on to some blockbuster,but her marketing was always dire!&still is."Select" is one mighty classy album which has it's seal of excellence with the tale of a tragic character "Wendy Sadd" this is the pure diamond in a bag full of sapphires,this has been played over & over,on every piece of eqipment from it's release in 1982 & I still get lost in the magic & charm of this album,I simply love it & I hope it finds it's way into the next life with me ,as it is like a very special friend who has been through thick & thin with me.If you don't buy it,it is only your loss & nobody elses. Go on click the proceed to......& lie back & let Ms Wilde take you to somewhere very special in the wildest of ways!

I remember playing this so many times back in the day that in the end the pops and crackles were almost as loud as the music itself. It was always one of my prized possessions though and to this day I still have the back catalogue of all of Kim's 80's albums on vinyl in perfect condition.

'Select' is, without a doubt, one of Kim's finest moments, and from the first opening synth chords of 'Ego' you just know you're in for a treat. 'View from a Bridge' has stood the test of time and is still unrelentless, perfect pop. In my opinion, there is not one bad song on here, but for me the best tracks by far are 'Take Me Tonight' (breathtakingly beautiful) and 'Words Fell Down'. I recall seeing Kim at the Dominion Theatre in 1982 (my first ever live gig) and 'Words Fell Down' was one of the highlights of the night. I was absolutely convinced it would be released as a single but it never was. In fact, as with many of her albums, only 2 singles were ever lifted from this which were 'View From A Bridge' and 'Cambodia'. Seems such a shame when there were so many potential hits to choose from.

Really great to now own all of her 80's work on CD with bonus tracks. I really hope the rest of her back catalogue gets the same treatment (the next of which should be 'Close' which for many is considered her shining moment) and for all of us Kim Wilde fans what could be better than a DVD release of all of her music videos?? Fingers, toes and everything else crossed on that one!

Bearing in mind that the CD versions of Kim's first three albums were changing hands on Ebay for silly money, all of us Kim Wilde fans from around the world should give Cherry Pop Records a huge round of applause!!!!

Like the reissue of her first album, and the recent reissue of her third "Catch As Catch Can", Cherry Pop have done a blinding job with the remastering and the addition of bonus tracks. If any artist was due a catalogue overhaul...it was Kim Wilde.

Fingers crossed the rest of her catalogue will get the same treatment.........and better still, a COMPLETE promo video collection on DVD!!!!!

Kim Wilde was a fresh face in pop in the early 1980s and a listen to her work is still mesmerizing.
A mind blowing combo of new wave, 80s pop and dance, it has been compared to Blondie, but Kim always had her own special style.
This is her second studio album and a treasured collectors item.

All great including the energetic Ego, the bouncy Words Fell Down" and fast paced Action City, to the hectic "View From a Bridge" and the high energy "Chaos at the Airport, the seductive , the slightly older fashioned rock of "Can You Come Over" and the sad Wendy Said, this is actually still refreshing after 27 years. I love it.

At last a decent copy of Select on CD! and with bonus tracks

I love Select and it brings back alot of memories for me.

Very pleased that this has Bitter is Better included. Another highlight is the B side to Child Come Away - Just Another Guy.

Again as with the other Cherry Pop reissues, the colour quality on the cover is pretty rubbish again!

This a good bit of Kim's earlier work. It is brash and original, and Kim's vocals are young and full of angst.
Quite why this album costs so much on eBay is anyone's guess. I've had a copy since it first came out. Mine's just worn out. The MP3 download of this album is an excellent alternative to the silly-money secondhand copies doing the rounds.
