Biography

Originating at the turn of the 1980s as a leader of the lite-jazz movement, Everything but the Girl became an unlikely success story more than a decade later, emerging at the vanguard of the fusion between pop and electronica. Founded in 1982 by Hull University students Tracey Thorn and Ben Watt, the duo took their name from a sign placed in the window of a local furniture shop, which claimed ...

Product Description

Product Description

Sixth album “Worldwide” (1991) was produced in the UK by Ben and Tracey themselves, and is now issued in a 2 CD deluxe casebound book set combined with the three acoustic EPs which followed it, originally released in 1992 and 1993. Disc One features "Worldwide", two remixes and an instrumental version, plus three previously unreleased demos. Disc Two contains the three Acoustic EPs, including the hit covers of "Love Is Strange" and "The Only Living Boy In New York", the latter produced by Phil Ramone, who produced the Simon & Garfunkel original. Also featured are six live tracks from this era, four of them previously unreleased, and an unreleased demo of a Big Star song, all hand-picked from Ben Watt’s own tape archive. The 32 page book features a candid note by Ben Watt and Tracey Thorn along with the lyrics, as well as memorabilia, previously unseen photos and set lists from their own collection.

Product Description

5.0 out of 5 stars This is how all rereleases should be done! 22 Nov 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Over recent years music fans have seen their favorite albums repackaged in so many formats that it gets confusing to keep up to date.In many cases these repackaged CDs don't really hit the spot of what the fan is actually wanting especially in most cases they will be bought by the hardcore fan and not the casual listener. The key reason for this is simply that the artist has not got involved and handed over control to the record company- what a mistake and fortunately EBTG did not allow this. This is a band that not only cares about how it's backlist is represented but most importantly the fan. I have been so satisfied with every release- so a huge thank you to Ben & Tracey for simply caring. Your backlist has been in my life for many years and it is a joy for me that these new editions add a new dimension to a really diverse and beautiful list. Lastly all the extras are truly appreciated! So if you are reading this do not hesitate in buying these releases while they are available!

Format:Audio CD
This release marks a difficult step in EBTGs career . Returning from the states after a successful , polished , adult contemporary jazz album which sold over a half million copies ( the language of Life ) and playing to large crowds , sell out venues in the US , Tracey and Ben found themselves in the diffcult situation of getting out of the box they were put in as a band and having lost their foothold within their audience , and being ignored in the UK again (as Tracey describes in her beautiful autobiography ) . With some stepping back , you can hardly notice very big inspiration in the songs except of the lovely and very honest British Summertime . Tracey and Ben were at the time not very proud of this release and consider it as their weakest . It 's not a bad album . It 's only refelecting the fatalistic mood they were in as they had to fulfill a contract and release a new album . Even the music press didn't bother rewiew it . It was gone under . The title the band wanted to have for this album was Understanding Understanding was vetoed Worldwide against by the record company . And there was no need to tour in the UK with it . They were very welcome in Japan , the States , but England ?
If you're a true fan like me , of course you own the original release already . The singles . The " The Only Boy Living In NY " and " I Didn't I Was Looking For Love " EPs , produced by Phil Ramone , which are indispensable not only because of the great acoustic tracks on them , The US release Acoustic which is a must have in any collection with its wondrous cover and acoustic versions ... So you ask yourself , why should i buy the new re-release ? Well , i advice you to do . Because this has a lot to offer .
