There are countless Bob Marley compilations on the market, but what will generate some interest in this one, which is essentially a collection of his Island singles with a handful of his Lee "Scratch" Perry-era tracks added in, is the inclusion of a "new" Marley song, "Slogans," derived from a demo tape Marley made in a Miami hotel room in 1979…
An excellent round-up of the 15 hit singles that, between late 1980 and fall 1984, saw Spandau Ballet transcend every prediction ever levelled at their music, and establish themselves among the most versatile British bands of their era. From the utterly convincing white boy Funk of the early "To Cut A Long Story Short", "The Freeze", "Musclebound" and "Chant No 1", through the bodyswerve to ballad-ville that ushered in the age of "True" and "Gold", and onto the near-anthemic guitar pop of "Only When You Leave" and "Highly Strung", The Singles Collection suffers only from its failure to tell the tale in strict chronological fashion.
The Complete Motown Singles has been a dream project of Motown and soul fanatics for many years, ever since the first decade of Stax/Volt singles was compiled in an impressive nine-disc box set in 1991. The Complete Motown Singles might have seemed like a logical move to soul collectors and fanatics, but it remained in the realm of fantasy for many years because, as enticing as that set was, it was difficult to create.
Collection includes: Im Nin 'alu (Played In Full Mix) (1987) Maxi-Single; Shaday (1988); 5 Tracks (1989) Japan Only EP; Desert Wind (1989); Kirya (1992); Ofra Haza (1997); Forever Ofra Haza: Her Greatest Songs Remixed (2008).
EBX is the title given to retrospective box sets from Erasure, released in the UK by Mute Records in 1999 and 2001. Four volumes of EBX have been released : both EBX 1 and EBX 2 were released in 1999, then EBX 3 and EBX 4 were out in 2001. Each set presents, in chronological order, five singles released by Erasure, beginning with their debut in 1986 up to 1992 (twenty singles in all). Although cover art was altered (specifically for the sets), the track listings represent all music originally found on the UK versions of their singles (including all remixes and B-sides, found on cassette and CD singles, as well as 12 inch singles).
