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.

Presented in a glossy 48-page 12"x12" hardback casebound book, featuring an array of pictures (she has had stunning photos taken over the years being the beauty that she is!), it is an absolute must-have item for BC lovers, guaranteed to become a true collectible (a possibility that makes its price seem rather reasonable considering it is such a high quality product). Regardless of who both "The Anthology" and "The Collection" are aimed at, both items are a true delight for any BC fan.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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?
