Product Description

Edsel is proud to present “The Anthology” – a 48 page 12”x12” hardback casebound book. Aside from page after page of beautiful photos of Belinda, the set contains three CDs and two DVDs. CD 1 and CD 2 include Belinda’s singles from her seven solo albums, from her first hit “Mad About You”, via worldwide multi-million sellers like “Heaven Is A Place On Earth”, “I Get Weak”, “Circle In The Sand”, “(We Want) The Same Thing” and “Live Your Life Be Free” to 2013’s comeback single “Sun” and fabulous the brand new recording “Goodbye Just Go”. CD 3 features five rarities. Produced by Chic’s Bernard Edwards, “Dancing In The City” featured in the Whoopi Goldberg film “Burglar”, while “I Won’t Say (I’m In Love)” was in Disney’s “Hercules”. "Bless The Beasts And The Children" is from PETA's 1991 charity album, “Tame Yourself” and "Christmas Lullaby" is from 1995's various artists album “Mother & Child”. Belinda’s version of the Sex Pistols’ “Submission” is from an album of cover versions entitled “Essential Interpretations”, with backing from UK alternative rock band Radiator. The disc is completed by a previously unreleased semi-acoustic live show recorded in Tokyo on 31st October 2013. DVD 1 contains 28 promo videos, from “Mad About You” to “Sun”, while DVD 2 is “BC on BBCTV”, a compilation of classic TV performances and interviews on the BBC. The bonus features include an EPK interview from 1999. The book also features an essay by Belinda expert Justin Kantor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love in the key of B 28 Mar 2014
By Scarlet Jupiter TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Verified Purchase
Following the immaculate series of the expanded CD/DVD reissues of last year ("Heaven on earth", "Runaway horses", "Live your life be free", and "Real"), Edsel now releases 2 career-spanning anthologies of one of the most iconic figures in recent pop culture, the gorgeous Belinda Carlisle. "The Collection" features 17 hit singles from Belinda's solo career, plus new song "Sun" from 2013's retrospective release "Icon", and an entirely brand new song ("Goodbye just go"). And, for the very first time, a compilation of 18 promo videos is also presented on DVD. Featuring lyrics, artwork and new notes, all nicely packaged in a beautiful casebook edition, this is the most comprehensive greatest-hits package of hers so far, out of the many that have been released over the years. Previous compilations failed to present nothing but a list of hits and rather poor booklets. This time around everything has been well looked after, making justice to both Belinda's material and image (she has had stunning photos taken over the years being the beauty that she is!).

"The Anthology" collects 3 CDs and 2 DVDs of hits and rarities. The first 2 CDs are devoted to all singles released from her solo debut "Belinda" up to her last English studio album "A woman and a man". CD3 features 5 non-LP tracks (unfortunately, the much sought-after "In my wildest dreams" is not included - a master for the track is still untraceable), and a live set from Tokyo in 2013. DVD1 offers the promo videos to all singles, and DVD2 features promo material and live performances on various UK TV programs. Presented in a glossy 48-page 12"x12" hardback casebound book, featuring an array of photos, it is a true delight for any BC fan. Both releases showcase Belinda's immensely successful trademark pop-rock profile.

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost the perfect package 11 Jun 2014
Belinda Carlisle has had a fair few Greatest Hits or budget compilation releases over the years but due to the politics of different labels owning different songs there has never been a definitive collection. Until now. CD1 and 2 cover all the hits (Heaven Is A Place On Earth, Leave A Light On, We Want The Same Thing, Circle In The Sand, In Too Deep, Live Your Life Be Free, the not quite hits (Lay Down Your Arms (making its first ever appearance on a Belinda compilation), All God's Children), the singles that were released only in the U.S. (I Feel The Magic, Band Of Gold, I Feel Free) and the intended hits that never made it past promotional release/ planned release (I Plead Insanity, A Prayer For Everyone, Valentine). Even a track from her 2007 French album Voila makes an appearance (ironically in English format! - I Still Love Him). The quality of the songs is undeniably great and makes you question why she doesn't continue to record. A minor niggle is that it is the album rather than single versions of In Too Deep and Always Breaking My Heart on this release (the version of 2013's Sun on here is also the full length version rather than the radio edit, but given this is the first time the full length version has been released in the UK we can overlook that!).

CD3 is a slightly disappointing mash of rarities and live tracks. The rarities include two soundtrack singles (Dancing In The City and I Won't Say (I'm In Love) and three other tracks - all which have been previously released but are hard to track down. Unfortunately there are no rare unreleased recordings that truly warrant the 'rarity' tag.The rest of the CD, a live recording from a Tokyo 2013 gig is largely filler given Carlisle released a live CD/DVD only last year containing almost all of these songs from a different gig.

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING!! 24 May 2014

The BEST Belinda Carlisle compilation ever released to be sure. After so many years to finally have all of the very hard to obtain video clips, rare tracks, remixes, fabulous hits and new tracks together and in excellent quality is a dream come true for long time Belinda Carlisle fans. The large format LP size photo book is truly beautiful and very high quality as well with some amazing images of Belinda over the years. Well worth the price indeed! Great packing as well for international shipment. Thanks Belinda and thanks Amazon!

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING!! 7 April 2014
Verified Purchase
I just received mine in the mail today, I'm in the book (my real name), and everything about this is stellar. Not only are there a more than generous amount of "hits" and fan favorites on here, but all the songs are beautifully remastered. The dvds are fun too. It's great to legally own all the videos, plus interviews, TV appearances, and bonus features of album ads! Also, the book is beautiful! Great photos from throughout her career, commentary, and a long list of fans who pre-ordered this anthology. Belinda and the Demon Music Group, you're the best!!! Thanks for recognizing this star in a truly classy and deserving way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great overview of a career not yet over! 18 April 2014
Verified Purchase
I have just about every Belinda Carlisle commercial record collection and this one still was a must for me. I love that it compiles a lot of single and alternate versions of the songs from the albums and offers a few rarities. And the addition of (possibly) all solo videos is a must have - including the videos for the latter albums.

The book packaging is gorgeous with an array of photographs. It's not just an album anthology - it's a coffee table book!

Can you tell I am pleased with it?
