Ace of Base / All That She Wants: The Classic Collection 11CD+DVD box

30th anniversary 11CD+DVD box set

Following the announcement of the coloured vinyl box set, Demon Music will release an Ace of Base 30th anniversary CD box set. The set is called All That She Wants: The Classic Collection and features 11 CDs with all four albums and an unfeasibly large amount of bonus material, as well as a DVD with promo videos.

The albums in question are  Happy Nation (1993), The Bridge (1995), Flowers (1998) and Da Capo (2002). In this set, the first two are expanded to two-CDs, while Flowers is a three-CD set, and Da Capo is a single disc with nine bonus tracks appended. The extra material includes classic and previously unreleased remixes from such big name remixes such as David Morales, Todd Terry, Junior Vasquez, and Frankie Knuckles.

But as if that is not enough, there is a further three bonus CDs including two discs of Hidden Gems and a CD called Edge of Heaven which features previously unavailable versions of the shelved 1996 single, plus a selection of new and revisited mixes including ‘Always Have, Always Will’, remixed for the very first time by Matt pop. This disc also features a live recording of Jonas, Jenny, Linn and Ulf’s first-ever performance together in their hometown of Gothenburg in August 1990.


All That She Wants: The Classic Collection features 11 CDs, one DVD and a 52-page booklet

The DVD (NTSC, region-free) contains all the group’s original promo videos plus an additional 10 bonus videos of alternates.

All That She Wants features dozens of new-to-CD tracks and nearly 20 audio tracks completely previously unreleased. In total there’s 195 audio tracks as well as the videos.

The presentation is similar to the M People box. Small lift-off lid box containing albums card wallets (Happy Nation, The Bridge, Flowers and Hidden Gems are gatefolds). This also comes with a 52-page booklet with sleeve notes, photos, lyrics and an illustrated discography.

All That She Wants: The Classic Collection will be released on 26 June 2020, via Edsel. We are stocking these in the SDE shop, which ships internationally (and is fully operational).

86 responses to Ace of Base / All That She Wants: The Classic Collection 11CD+DVD box

  1. Andrzej Łukowski says:

    I wish the DVD was of PAL system encoding. NTSC applied is always of lower resolution. Pity!

  2. John-Paul says:

    I managed to get a copy from the Ace of Base website in Sweden. With shipping to the U.S. it came out to about $112. A little more than I wanted to spend, but definitely better than what it seems to be going for on eBay and third-party sellers. Lesson learned to always pre-order!

    • CakeSaint says:

      Same story here, except I found one at iMusic in Denmark. About the same price shipped to the US, and just got confirmation of shipping. Looks like it’s out of stock at that store now, though. With the popularity of the band worldwide, I thought they’d print plenty of these, but I guess not.

  3. mino says:

    How can it be sold out? Did they print 300 copies?

  4. John-Paul says:

    Any idea why this seems to be sold out everywhere? Someone on Amazon wants a crazy amount of money for it. I’m hoping it’s just temporary and will be back in stock everywhere. I didn’t pre-order it (stupid, I know).

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      I think it’s because Demon have no more stock. Could be effectively now out of print.

  5. Henry says:

    SDE no longer shipping to US?

  6. Andrzej Łukowski says:

    How about the DVD specification? Is it of PAL system encoding?

  7. Holger says:

    Too bad “Goldeneye” (demo for the James Bond 007 movie, later reworked into “The Juvenile”) is missing.

  8. Bert says:

    I don’t understand those complaining about easily available versions being missing from this. We all already have these, if they are leaving them off to make room for some of the missing tracks, that’s great! I want the tracks I don’t have already. Who wants a fancy box of duplicates?

    Real excited for this one! So much new material here.

    • NTG says:

      Because of the reason that some of the missing tracks were included on the first original album versions! So if they decided to reissue their albums, the first thing they should have done, is to release the “entire” original albums and after that putting the bonus tracks together. And the missing versions were part the first editions

  9. william says:

    It would’ve been nice if they added The Golden Ratio to this.

  10. Ricky says:

    I hope they remaster their videos from original film elements and put them out on blu-ray- or even on their official YouTube channel. I’m shocked they went with a DVD in 2020. Honestly, DVD has been outdated for about 8 years- except for grandparents who still want them.

    Other than that, this is a pretty solid release. I’m looking forward to the unreleased tracks.

    • David says:

      Come on Ricky the cost to do that would be astronomical. You’d need to sell a lot of copies to make a profit back on that. It’s Ace of Base, not The Beatles.

    • RODOLFO MARTIN says:

      Ricky, I agree with you. SuperDeluxe sets should not include DVDs, only Blu-rays. The DVD is ok while the material is not upgraded. However, there are a couple of examples of Blu-ray releases that just have a transfer from a DVD master and buyers complained because they were expected better quality for having paid extra money (at this time Blu-rays should not cost more than DVDs after 10 years or so, they are not the “new thing” anymore). I ignore how far technology has gone to convert from standard quality to high definition. I don’t think it is possible. I know that the color can be improved a lot (I think that is what they are doing this day on YouTube that many artists announce that their channels upgraded videos; Sting and Dire Straits announced something like that recently). It is possible also that video in physical format is going to be history soon, as the industry thinks that most of the people watch in cellphones. They do not care much about those who care about big TV sets with good sound systems. By the way, I could be a grandfather, although I am not and I love blu-rays.

    • Ray says:

      Yes, it could be done on Blu Ray. Just think how many music videos have recently been upgraded to 4K, including Wham! ‘Last Christmas’, The Cranberries ‘Zombie’ and even Alannis Morissette’s videos have just been upgraded. Surely, as most AOB videos were shot on film they can easily scan those and give us a high quality Blu Ray. I was gutted with the M People set whose DVD looks like blatant Youtube rips, and because of that, i doubt i will spend the money on this set if the DVD turns out like the M People one.

  11. TOM RICHARDSON says:

    This looks bloody great! Now if someone would do a Dina Carroll box as good as this with all the mixes, b sides, single versions, collaborations, early/later singles and accompanying videos/TV performances not to mention the unreleased album…

  12. Larry Davis says:

    The Golden Ratio…I wonder if the Hidden Gems tracks on this box are from that lost/forgotten album…or just B-sides & unreleased material?! I guess the booklet will have the answer…

  13. William Miller says:

    looking forward to this , sadly though the unreleased first filmed video for “Life Is A Flower” doesnt appear to be on the DVD :(

  14. Mickey says:

    Surprised some remixes aren’t included:
    All That She Wants (Bahangra Version)
    Happy Nation (Remix)
    The Sign (Dub Version)
    Beautiful Life (Junior’s Circuit Bump Mix)/(Uno Clio Mix)
    Happy Nation 2009 – this was only available as lq on their website and they’ve still forgot to include it!

    But some of these have been remastered and re-released digitally.

    Some live audio of songs that we know would have been good as well.

    I don’t see why this is more expensive than the M People boxset though as the size is basically the same lol Hopefully the price will drop…

  15. Mino says:

    Are the tracks all remastered? Paul the cd is called Da Capo and not Da Capa‍♂️

  16. AndreasL says:

    Am i missing something here? Feels like an in joke i haven’t been privy too. So were talking about THE Ace of Base right?

  17. Fil says:

    Wonder if the Cruel Summer bonus video track 18 is the version with Alliage?

  18. Jim says:

    great looking set, but the biggest omission i see is it is missing the rare Da Capo 5.1 surround mix that was released on dvd in 2002 in Germany… (thankfully i still have it!)… otherwise looks pretty complete!

  19. Shane says:

    I might buy, looks nice, but I wonder if the DVD will be defective like the M People one! With no chance of replacement.

  20. Joseph says:

    Great news!a real gem
    Will it be available in other stores?
    For dance and eurodance lovers from the 90s it would be wonderful to have releases like this from other groups like culture beat, 2 unlimited, haddaway, dr.alban,U96,Cappellae…tc also on vinyl.
    Well, dreaming is free, this genre is somewhat forgotten in terms of releases.

  21. Andy E says:

    Hi Paul

    Wondered if you had considered having a ‘like’ button as well as reply so we can quickly agree with a comment to show our approval?

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      Yes indeed. Comments will be improved soon-ish. I know I have been saying that for a while, but it’s being addressed :) I’m going to avoid a ‘dislike’ button though, because best to accentuate the positive!

  22. Eurovision says:

    Unavailable now on Amazon UK

  23. NTG says:

    For some reason on this absolutely fantastic forthcoming Ace of Base CD Boxset, 3 tracks have been excluded:

    1. All that she wants – Bhangra Version
    This track was included as a bonus track on the original 1993 edition of the Happy Nation album, as well as on every single edition of the track

    2. Voulez-Vous Danser – First Version
    This track is an early version and was included on the first European edition of the Happy Nation album (with the Disco Ball on the front cover). I understand that there are also earlier versions of many songs from “The Bridge” album, so maybe only final versions are included here

    3. Never gonna say I’m sorry – Rock Version
    This track was included on the single of the song, as well as on the Ultimate Vinyl Edition (released by Mirumir Records) some years ago (never liked that mix)

    I would also like to mention that there are 2 similar versions with a different ending of the “Happy Nation” track.
    One fades out at the end and was included on the first edition of the same album (with the Disco Ball on the front cover) and the other one has a cold ending with Linn’s vocals and was included on the US Edition of the Happy Nation album. Both have almost the same duration. Hopefully the cold end version is included here.

    However, I’m more than happy about this release!
    I was waiting for over 20 years for a remastered & expanded CD edition of their first album (though my favorite album is “The Bridge”)!

    • DAVID NEUMANN says:

      I also don’t think that they sang playback every performance. Like throw in a couple of live tracks or videos from all sorts of TV performances they did.

    • Roland says:

      I just checked my collection, the Bhangra Version was also on the US album The Sign, together with My Mind (Mindless Mix) and Waiting for Magic (Total Remix 7″). :)

      Voulez-vous danser is on the album as well, though not sure which version that is.

      • NTG says:

        The version of “Voulez-Vous Danser” which was included on the “The Sign” (Happy Nation – US Version), is the new version. The old version was included on the very first edition of the Happy Nation album, which was available only in Europe and had a disco ball on the front cover of the album.

  24. Galley says:

    Great Googly Moogly!

  25. Larry Davis says:

    On a sorta related note, there was a cool Swedish Britpop band called Grass Show & they did a killer fun cover of AOB’s All That She Wants on their lone album “Something Smells Good In Stinkville”…great album too, an overlooked underappreciated classic…

    • Gareth Jones says:

      I used to DJ at a weekly lndie/Alternative club night, and l’d regularly play their cover. It was a great version. And you’ve now reminded me about them, so l’ll dig out the Grass Show album tomorrow. Rediscovering forgotten 90’s gems has been one enjoyable thing about lockdown!

      • Larry Davis says:

        The whole thing is great & recall getting it for a penny!! Opening track shoulda been a hit really…I call them Swedish Britpop cuz they sure have the Britpop style down great but are from Sweden, not Britain…2 other great similar Swede bands from the 90s are Tommy 16 & This Perfect Day…and there is also a great American 90s Britpop band called the Shore…one self titled album on Maverick/Warners, they are a bit like the Verve…but Grass Show deserved better…

  26. Neill2407 says:

    Too expensive for what it is. I only paid £40 for the M People box set and I’m a much bigger fan of them! Also missing the Lenny b mix of beautiful life!

  27. kauwgompie says:

    Outstanding box. Will get this for sure. Not much to complain about here. I hope Edsel did some good quality control so we don’t have to chase replacement discs. Great news!!!

  28. Ron says:

    How can I order it if I live in the USA? Amazon UK says it can’t deliver to the US
    unlike when I ordered The Donna Summer box set…it came with no problems

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      Order it from the SDE shop.

      • Ron says:

        Tried 3 times it keeps saying it didn’t go through…I hope I didn’t actually order it 3 times..I .did it from my phone. So I’ll try it again this evening from my computer

        • Paul Sinclair says:

          Weird… let me know if you are still having problems.

          • Ron says:

            Yes Paul still having trouble…I’ve tried multiple times….sent email to SDE…Anne wrote me back didn’t know why having trouble. I’ve checked my card all is good to go…I’m trying to use a MasterCard and I’m in the US…I’ve tried to order from my computer, IPad and iPhone with no luck…I’ve checked and double checked each field when ordering and it just keeps saying “refused”

          • Paul Sinclair says:

            Sorry to hear this Ron – all I can suggest is an alternative method of payment (like PayPal) because there are lots of orders coming in without issue. Cheers, Paul

          • Ron says:

            Hey Paul took your advice…went through PayPal with same credit card and my order is now confirmed! Thanks, I wasn’t about to miss out on this!!

          • Paul Sinclair says:

            Glad to hear it Ron. Sorry it wasn’t the best experience.. P

  29. RAFAEL says:

    incredible reléase ,only one appointment , extra bonus on DVD the happy nation home video vhs but very cool is a dream for a ACER

  30. Graham says:

    All that anyone wants.

  31. MARK LEVY says:

    I’ve already got a Dvd with all the essential videos on it. So no thanks.

  32. Larry Davis says:

    Ordered!! This & TFF booklet…you r welcome Paul…and yes, scary that 1990 is freaking 30 years ago!! Then again, it was a year after I graduated University, so I was 22/23…and I am now 52…sheesh time flies!! But this box looks superb and yes it looks packaged like the MPeople set…now I have this sorta bootleggish Russian 2CD hits Collection & was doing research on AOB at the time & saw they did recordings AFTER De Capo…I wonder if the Hidden Gems 2CD consists of these recordings?? Or just B-sides & unreleased tracks?? Either way, I’m excited…

    • CJ says:

      There was an entire album after Da Capo called The Golden Ratio. Is that possibly where those tracks on your disc came from?

      • Mino says:

        It was not from Ace of Base I mean same guys with different singers and the name was all with dots (for copyright)

        • Jordi says:

          There was also an (entire?) album between Da Capo (Ace of Base) and The Golden Ratio (something other than Ace of Base lol). Some songs were performed live at festivals by Jenny, Jonas and Ulf (ie. Sparks from a Fire). Never released.

  33. Steven Roberts says:

    Personally not a fan beyond a couple of the singles, but for those so inclined this looks like a fantastic set.

    I just hope that Demon have got their numbers right with the potential sales figures for this box – might encourage them to do more sets from other artists whose oeuvre I am more inclined to splash out on, such as

  34. AdamW says:

    I know I won’t be buying this, but I always like to see big efforts like this materialize because they represent the hope that bands I really DO like will get the same treatment. I hope if you like this band, this is a big winner for you.

  35. Roelant van Zevenbergen says:

    Stellar box this is, I’ve only got one big ??: why does Demon first release a 3cd Gold Collection and shortly afterwards the 11cd boxset. Same with Five Star and M People. Is there a box in the making for The Bangles? Why can’t I just choose to buy the ‘complete’ box or the 3cd by releasing them at the same time…

    • David says:

      Hey, that’s business! And at least you get different mixes on the Gold CDs not on the boxsets.

    • Ray says:

      They do it for those who just want a cheaper CD collection, and then those who are willing to pay full wack for CD, DVD and all the extras.

  36. Larry Davis says:

    Oh man I want this!!! Ace of Base, the ABBA of the 90s…I personally think their stuff holds up as well as both ABBA & Roxette…as Amazon UK is not shipping to the US currently & not sure if the US store is selling it at all, I may have to buy it from you, Paul, no choice…no signed print or lyric sheet?? Also, any copies left of the TFF book?? If yes, I’ll buy both… that & AOB box…you charge upfront right?? And how much for shipping to the US??

    I loved the Flowers album, much underappreciated after the lack of success of the previous album I thought. Bargain for how much you get in the box! Not something I’ve said often on some of these multi-disc sets :)

    Funnily enough I was looking for one track and it’s not there that I can see (looked twice). All that she wants (their number one single) in it’s Bhangra version which was on the CD single. I’m not impressed. 11 CD’s and that wasn’t included. Really? I used to love that version

    • NTG says:

      Indeed! Very weird, because this version was also included as a bonus track on the “Happy Nation” album!

    • David says:

      The Bhangra version is hardly essential. I like that they have chosen more obscure mixes that were on promo or vinyl only before. How can you be unimpressed with this set, it has 195 tracks!

    • Russ Kasim says:

      The 12” Version of All That She Wants is first part original mix and second part (Bhangra Version).

    You’re the best paul.

    Looks great and lots of fantastic material, and songs I look forward to listening to for the first time. I do think this set is overpriced though. Last years great 3CD Gold album (singles, album tracks, unreleased songs and remixes) was priced at £5.99 and is a quality product (albeit basic). A price point of £40-£50 for this set would make me hit the buy button. Will wait for the inevitable price drop

    Nice tracklisting !
    They just forgot the 1st versions on some tracks from “the bridge” 1st pressings but it seems to add a lot more than expected … that’s fine for me !!!

    A must buy for me.
