5.0 out of 5 stars A very decent compilation that ventures beyond the usual "best of" tracks, 12 April 2014

This review is from: All I Ever Wanted: The Anthology (Audio CD)
With numerous previous compilations already available, such as A New England and Galore, you could be mistaken for wondering if the world needs another Kirsty MacColl best of.

But since All I Ever Wanted is a two disc set, it has the time and space to go beyond the usual tracks and dig a little deeper (similar to the even more comprehensive, but now deleted, From Croydon To Cuba). Released by Salvo, who in the last few years have re-issued excellent two disc sets of Kirsty's back catalogue (all of them featuring numerous bonus tracks) this compilation is ideal for the listener who wants to venture beyond the single disc best ofs, but doesn't feel commited enough to collect all the albums.

The familiar tracks are present and correct (Days, Free World, Walking Down Madison, They Don't Know, There's A Guy Works Down The Chipshop Swears He's Elvis, Fairytale of New York) whilst a few songs are represented by live BBC acoustic sessions (A New England, He's On The Beach). The rarest track is Over You (b-side of the See That Girl single) which makes its CD debut.

With the two CD format allowing space for deeper album cuts, this is a comprehensive collection with very little filler. Apart from Over You, there's little else that is particularly rare for the long term fan, but with 43 tracks All I Ever Wanted is good value and a decent introduction to the music of Kirsty MacColl.

5.0 out of 5 stars (Almost) All I Ever Wanted, 12 May 2014

This review is from: All I Ever Wanted: The Anthology (Audio CD)
A very thorough and pleasing compilation from the beautiful Kirsty Maccoll. For any one wanting to get to know this wonderful singer songwriter this is an excellent place to start. I strongly suggest, though, that you really will benefit from buying all Kirsty's albums.

This is a sort of best of... plus.
The dual CD format allows for most of the well known tracks/hits to be included, but gives some scope for some additional lesser known tracks and rarities. The obvious standout (in terms of rarity) is Over You.
It's a good collection, but if you have others, it may not be worth buying this as well.
On the plus side, it's a great set, and the mix of studio and session tracks works well. And, it is Kirsty MacColl, so what more excuse could you need?
