    A dream come true. Great! Thank you so much, but I miss the rare track ‘Always on my mind’ (Live and Vocals by Ben Watt) from the limited edition single ‘Don’t Leave Me Behind’.

  2. Jaysen says:

    Very much anticipating these!

  3. Frank says:

    Reminds me of my days as a student. Great!

  4. Karen says:

    I’ve been [t]here since very nearly the beginning. The early albums hold a special place, each as a special jewel—that is better, more beautiful, and indeed more special as you hold it to its own shining light. I am looking forward to these re-issues! Thanks, Edsel!

    My name is Andrei and I’m from Brazil. I love EBTG since 1987. At that time, I was 11 years old and it was very hard to find their LPs here in Brazil. I went to USA on 1988, June and I was dreaming of finding EBTG’s LP called Eden. Unfortunatelly I didn’t find it, but I bought Idlewild of EBTG and a Blow Monkeys LP. Those were the things I brought form this voyage that I like the most. I hope EBTG comes to Brazil one day for a show and I really have the hope to win those fantastic CDs.

  7. Brian Carr says:

    Been a fan since ’86. Never thought I’d see the day the soundtrack of my youth would see a reissue. Fantastic work… kudos to Edsel. (And Ben and Tracey, of course.)

  11. Nate Jackson says:

    Man, it would great to win these. These take me back to 2006, when I met my last girlfriend. I got her singing Driving, my favorite EBTG song next to Troubled Mind. Good memories of a time gone by.

  23. Ed says:

    A great release… well overdue.

  24. Alex says:

    Great group, beautiful reissues!

  25. David McCormack says:

    Any idea when the rest of their back catalogue will be reissued?

  26. Michael Chapman says:

    Would love to replace my scratched vinyl with these fellas

  29. Kirk says:

    These look nice. I can’t wait to hear them!

  31. Patrick M. says:

    Another knockout set by Edsel. I ponied up for all 6 JAMC reissues, so I’m hoping to recoup on this fantastic set! Also,, you’re a bookmarked, visited-daily site for me. My friends all make fun of my music buying because I have to have the best version of a release (whether it’s a deluxe reissue or a $35 Japanese pressing that includes an exclusive bonus track.) I thought I was mental too, until your site told me that behaviour was OK!

  32. Joe says:

    Lovely. Would be honored to own these…will likely still buy them if I don’t win them.

  33. ROBERT PEEL says:

    These look beaut

  34. Broose says:

    Great job!

  35. Carlos André Gomes says:

    “and i miss you.”

  36. Brian McNeill says:

    These look great, and knowing Edsel more importantly they will SOUND BRILLIANT!

  37. Jon J says:

    Lovely looking reissues with a very comprehensive selection of bonus material – would love to own a set of these!

  38. Eugene says:

    Just lovely. Can’t wait to hear them!

  39. William M says:

    Love EBTG but gave up the ghost on facebook many moons ago, so it kind of discriminates against those who think facebook is a waste of time and energy, Would love to win these though, they look great

  40. Dominic says:

    How utterly sublime.

  41. John says:

    The only way that this set could be better is if there was new music included in the release. Beautifully done.

  42. Steve says:

    EBTG really slipped under my radar until Amplified Heart. Been listening to early Tracey Thorne/Marine Girls lately so these would be perfect right now.

    Lovely looking package from Edsel

  47. Peter Dixon says:

    A comment! :-)

  48. vodka ed says:

    Wow! They look adorable. They certainly took some time and effort with these reissues.

  49. oskar says:

    Great compilation!!

  50. Boaz Halachmi says:

    Edsel are doing great job with their re-issue CDs.

  51. Paul says:

    I’ve just bought the CD’s at Christmas and now they do this to me – Booo ;o)

  52. raffaele says:

    edsel is top of the reissue game!!!

  53. Marcel says:

    I first got to know Everything but the girl during the age of Sky Channel and Music Box, when they were playing the music video for ‘Each and every one’ a lot. I didn’t like the song immediately, but eventually it grew on me. The band reappeared in my life from time to time, with songs like ‘Come on home’ and ‘I don’t want to talk about it’ (a much better version than Rod Stewart’s IMHO), and later the Massive Attack-style ‘Walking wounded’ album. The voice of Tracey Thorn is often mentioned ,but the credentials of Ben Watt shouldn’t go unnoticed. The pair have an astonishingly varied back catalogue and I think this re-release quartet was long overdue. But I’m very glad Edsel have handled the project well: these look like wonderfully beautiful sets. I don’t know anything from the album ‘Love not money’ but I do think all these albums would be a great addition to anyone’s cd collection (including mine).

  54. Roland says:

    I hope they release these deluxe editions for the rest of their catalogue.

  55. Alan says:

    Brilliant! And it is an excellent reissue compared to some of the other badly compiled ones – this is amazing and well done Edsel!!

  56. PhilG says:

    They look fantastic!

  57. Ben Carlin says:

    I remember buying Eden on vinyl when it first came out in May 1984, after hearing “Each And Every One” on the radio. Would love to win these reissues!

  58. Mark Owen says:

    Fab! Love these. Wanna win! :)

  59. Ron says:

    Count me in!

  60. Alan says:

    The usual comprehensive sets from Edsel – excellent

  61. Steve Marine says:

    Edsel always does a great job with their super deluxe editions. (Thompson Twins comes to mind.) These look great. The upcoming Bronski Beat/Communards re-issues have me beside myself with excitement!

  62. Don says:

    These look fantastic!

  63. James DeFrance says:

    If they sound as beutiful as they look I’m in. Have been waiting for deluxe editions of their early catalog forever. Thanks!

  64. rich weaver says:

    if only i could afford them..

  65. Richard Mann says:

    adorable. must have.

  77. Michael howe says:

    Last time i listened to everything but the girl was in the 80’s , what a prize..

  78. Nathan says:

    Great contest! These reissues look very well done, indeed.

  79. Uffe says:


  80. Steven says:

    Enter me please. These are the most visually attractive Edsel product so far. Thinking the BOOK EDITIONS are a result of all of the bitching over the creased spines of the Suede Deluxe CDs.

  81. David Baida says:

    I would die to win these! Huge EBTG fan. Tracey Thorn wrote to me once! Thanks!

    Great competition, thanks! Does the set have any additional box etc compared to buying the 4 discs individually?

  85. Sascha says:

    Real value here! EBTG can’t be rated highly enough imho!

  86. g man says:

    do these reissues include ‘everything but the………. kitchen sink’?

  97. erik gullickson says:

    Amazing, amazing. These EBTG albums guided me through some dark times, and helped to celebrate the return of light. One of my fondest life memories is from living in NYC 94-95 and wandering into an acoustic in-store performance at the upper west side HMV. just three songs, but yowza, what an impression! Can’t wait to hear these reissues…

  98. David Russell says:

    One of my favorite bands, ever…and the most deserving of a lovingly put together re-release campaign. Can’t wait!

    What is there to say except that I would Like these very much!
