Description

A lot of these b-side tracks were never published anywhere else, so when I realised they were finally released as a special CD collection, I was relieved to have back so much of what I had lost. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. The final physical installment of the definitive catalog remastering project released in vinyl and CD boxed sets. Read more about the condition New: An item that is still in its original shrink wrap from the manufacturer and the original manufacturer’s seal (if applicable) has not been removed. This set finally bundles the evidence: 34 tracks, including some of the avant-pop auteur’s most gorgeous, extravagant, intimate, and bonkers material — b-sides, remixes, and an album’s-worth of stray, often strange covers.

His Marilyn Monroe tribute “Candle In The Wind,” meanwhile, gets swirled into ambient synth-pop, Bush veering midsong, it seems, from fangirl into Monroe herself, as she chirps the word “superstar” — a state Bush knew plenty about herself when she tracked this in ’91, years before the song was reimagined as a tribute to another British icon.

There are some notable omissions to the rarities and B-sides in the set, including "The Empty Bullring" (B-side to " Breathing"), "Not This Time" (B-side to " The Big Sky"), "Ken" and "The Confrontation" (B-sides to " Love and Anger") as well as single versions of some tracks, instrumental versions, and extended/alternate mixes of " Rubberband Girl", " Eat the Music", " The Red Shoes" and " December Will Be Magic Again". The 12” versions, more extensions than reinventions, include the unhinged “meterological mix” of the Hounds Of Love single “Big Sky,” pumped up with machine-gun handclaps and didgeridoo drones. It isn't a complete rarities collection as tracks like The Empty Bullring are omitted, but it saves hunting down all the CD singles and means you can play, for instance, the 12-inch versions of Hounds of Love singles in one go (that's Disc One) or Kate's covers of other peoples' songs (Disc Four).

There are so many accolades used when discussing Kate’s work, and deservedly so, that it seems useless for me to add any more. But the feeling you get when watching, reading, or listening to her work makes one realize that she is certainly unique and that her contributions to music and film are actually artistic in a pure sense. Also, Dearborn-Music (the seller) got it to me quite fast and I am very pleased with how fast this collection got to me because I was waiting to get this collection the moment I saw a month before it was released that it was coming out. Rare tracks such as 'Brazil,' from the 'Brazil' film soundtrack, 'Lyra' from the film 'The Golden Compass', 'Be Kind to My Mistakes' from Nic Roeg's film 'Castaway' are also featured in the special set. The Billie Holiday vehicle “The Man I Love” gets a less-radical transformation, with production/arrangement by George Martin in the style of Lady Day’s 1939 Vocalion recording, complete with muted trumpet.Bob is the author of the Top 100 Canadian Albums, a national best-seller published in 2007, and The Top 100 Canadian Singles, published in September 2010, both from Goose Lane Editions. Compilation album, released initially as part of the Remastered box set, and subsequently as a stand-alone 4CD set on 8 March 2019. It brings together various B-sides and rare tracks and consists of the albums 12″ Mixes, The Other Side 1, The Other Side 2 and In Others’ Words.
