Limited Edition 3xCD album box set featuring 66-tracks including all the hits plus unreleased mixes, demos & songs from Adam's own archive, with 64-page colour booklet.
Top Customer Reviews
All 66 songs on the boxset were handpicked by Adam Ant and his longtime songwriting partner/guitarist Marco Pirroni, and the 48-page booklet that comes with a cool 3CD deluxe 7" lid-top box includes amusing/interesting liner notes from the both of them, as well as a load of unseen stuff -like a cute baby Marco pic, for example! .... But let's not get 'too teenybopper' here.
Reviewing the song material (regular single and album songs, alternate versions, demos, and officially unreleased songs) on this boxset I make the distinction between 3 types of (potential) listener-target-groups. That sounds posh, doesn't it? Well anyway, don't let the first (most critical) bit withhold you from reading the complete review; please make up your mind about this 3CD-set after reading it ALL.
--From a die-hard-collector's point of view -i.e. mine- I say they could have done better with the song-selecting. Apart from the obvious already released stuff (on regular CDs, as well as on a bunch of compilation Ants CDs) the true fanatics have a biiiig chunk of the rarer song material already, and some of it, like a few of the demos, in better quality than the versions on this box set! And hey, that Stand & Deliver demo stands out as 'very bad' (in my spoilt book anyway) since it is a far cry from the sexy 'n' swashbuckling version that was released as a single in 1981.Read more ›

A gift that was loved - can't believe he got me to pay £40 more for one in cellophane & then opened it & binned the cellophane when he already had it on iTunes though!!!Published on 8 Jan. 2015 by Camila
Excellent box set for any Adam Ant fan! A great selection of his work from the punk days and up to the more main stream workPublished on 22 Jan. 2013 by Simon Dance
It's "gotta be a sin" that this material was kept under wraps for so long! A truly "wonderful" collection of Ant tracks! Read morePublished on 21 Feb. 2001
