EMI offer the gift of Sound & Vision

Sight + Sound compilations due for release August 2012

EMI are set to release a series of budget ‘Sight & Sound‘ CD+DVD compilations on 13 August featuring big name artists such as Duran Duran, Culture Club and The Human League.

Available only in Europe, the two-disc sets feature some rather quirky ‘greatest hits’ selections on CD and abbreviated video career summaries on DVD.

Although by no means definitive, these compilations could offer something to appeal to collectors, with their single edits, occasional twelve-inch remixes and even the odd B-side, along with hit singles and favourite album tracks.

Being on the budget imprint EMI Gold, don’t expect 5.1 surround sound or flashy menus on the DVD element, but there are some solid offerings, even if none of the releases have any more than twelve videos. The Duran Duran DVD in particular is a good summary of the band up until 1985, and even includes the long uncensored version of Girls On Film.

These releases are all available for under £6 on amazon.co.uk. For those outside Europe this works out to be less than £5 without the VAT. In total eight of these compilations are being released: Duran Duran, Culture Club, The Human League, Marillion, The Stranglers, UB40, Thunder and Hot Chocolate.

  1. '80s fan says:

    That’s all ‘OK’. But why is there no such Kim Wilde CD+DVD compilation yet? The videos for “Kids In America”, “Chequered Love”, “Cambodia”, “View From A Bridge”, “Child Come Away”, “Love Blonde”, “Dancing In The Dark”, “You Came (2006 version)” and “Perfect Girl”, all would be ideal to have on a DVD for the very first time at last. Why is Britain’s most successful female solo singer of all time so unfairly missed off when it comes to promo videos DVD matters, I’ll never ever understand. All the aforementioned videos came out under the EMI license.

    i shall certainly be getting the Marillion and Stranglers sets! the Duran Duran one is tempting, but with a shed load of Duran CDs and DVDs i am not sure i am the target market for it!
