In the thread: Is this worth £71.71?
If 4AD ever get round to doing the same thing with the entire Colourbox catalogue, I would be there like a shot from a gun, whatever the price!
A man can but dream and wait and hope and pray.
Well my prayers have been answered. http://www.4ad.com/news/14/2/2012/4adto ... ompilationhttp://shopusa.4ad.com/colourbox/
It says it only costs $30 but it was just under $50 (a wee bit over £32) by the time the shipping to the UK was factored in. But it was still a bargain. It is released on 22 May 2012.
And, it is simply called Colourbox
For the first time ever, 4AD have released the full double Colourbox
album on one CD.
On the second CD you get all the 7” single versions
On the 3rd CD you get all the 12 inch mixes
Finally on CD number 4 you get the rest of the Colourbox mini album,an unreleased mix of Arena
(which is a gorgeous song),
then all the BBC sessions
that most folk never knew existed.
It contains 6 unreleased songs and two session versions of songs from the album.
In all, and very like the This Mortal Coil
release, this brings together absolutely everything Colourbox
Thank you 4AD for making my dreams come true. I can’t wait to get hold of it now!
Stop Press - They have missed the instrumental version of Manic
, which was on an obscure compilation LP. I have just emailed 4AD to ask them to add it as an extra track on the 4th CD. Fingers crossed.
