Product Description

Product Description

With a delightful, highly dexterous voice, a delicious sense of humour informing a songwriting flair that could revival any of her contemporaries, Kirsty MacColl enjoyed a sparkling career spanning over twenty years before her tragic and untimely passing in 2000. This thoughtfully-curated selection makes for a detailed study of that career, one that draws together all the hits, album cuts, rare b-sides, live sessions and more. The accompanying, fully illustrated 32-page booklet features generous and insightful notes.

Review

'This 43-track collection pulses with wit and insight... a sorely missed talent.' ALBUM OF THE WEEK ***** --Sunday Express 6th April 2014

'All the hits are represented, plus album tracks and rarities….reminding us that when she was tragically killed in 2000, MacColl's career was cut way too short.' **** --Q April 2014

'MacColl was one of the greatest songwriters EVER, and this two-CD, 43-track set is the irrefutable evidence.'**** --Classic Pop Jun/Jul 2014

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.

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?

I bought this to expand my experience of her work - unfortunately after the hits we know and love it was obvious why many of the other tracks were not so well known.

Kirsty McColl - simply the best. 'Don't play the Cowboy' must be one of the most beautiful haunting songs ever written.
