Kirsty MacColl / All I Ever Wanted: The Anthology / 2CD compilation


Salvo will put out a new two-CD Kirsty MacColl collection, The Anthology next month.

Although it’s debatable if the world needs another MacColl compilation (Salvo’s own A New England: The Best of Kirsty MacColl is only a year old), this has a decent track listing drawing together hits, album cuts, rare b-sides, live sessions and so on. It’s also very cheap. Salvo also always do decent packaging and this digi-pack will come with a 32-page booklet featuring photos and notes.

All I Ever Wanted: The Anthology is out on 7 April 2014.

    Any Kirsty MacColl compilation v welcome but You Still Believe In Me gets overlooked again. It’s the gem in the archive

  2. James Giraffe says:

    Someone on the Kirsty MacColl forum pointed out that this is the only place that the song “Over You” (the b-side of “See That Girl”) is available on CD.

  3. alan hansen says:

    worth a look, but that’s about it. i have the 3cd anthology “from croydon to cuba” which is a tad overkill for a moderate fan like me, but it DOES have a few crucial tracks such as her demo of “dear john” – co-written by kirsty and beautifully interpreted by eddi reader. it’s so lovely, it’s hardly a demo.

  4. Mike the Fish says:

    I would have liked to have seen the proper 8 min or so 12″ version of He’s On The Beach. Hard to get on CD!

  5. ken says:

    Just cannot see who this release is aimed at. There are numerous “best of’s” on the market. All of her albums have been re-issued with numerous extras and the “From Croydon To Cuba” 3 cd set is still around. Very strange and unnecessary release even at the cheap price.
