Ace of Base CD box available again

More CD boxes coming in August

Edsel’s Ace of Base All That She Wants: The Classic Collection 11CD+DVD box set has proved incredibly popular and sold out extremely quickly. The good news is and additional number are being manufactured to meet demand and stock is available to pre-order via the SDE shop.

As a reminder, this set features 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 Capa 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.

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.

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

These should be available around 7 August 2020, so don’t pay over the odds. Secure your copy via the SDE shop using this link or the button below (we ship internationally).

23 responses to Ace of Base CD box available again

  1. Rob says:

    Still baffled that a second run didn’t merit more copies being made when its popularity even at a premium price was evident…

  2. fahad says:

    hi Paul, I pre-ordered this second time around, will it ship on the 7th?

  3. Darryl says:

    Got mine, thanks SDE!

    Just listening now. Strange Ways on The Bridge appears to be an alternate mix. More vocals, extended start and another new part towards the end. Interesting.

  4. Larry Davis says:

    I hope mine didn’t get lost…last thing I heard was it got sent to LA, which is odd cuz that’s 3000 miles out of the way…I’m in NY…and haven’t heard anything since…one thing I am afraid of is the thing getting lost and it selling out, shutting me out from getting one at all when I ordered it right at the beginning…let alone that TFF booklet…I’m worried now…

  5. Ben Cook says:

    I think the problem was that Amazon didn’t order enough to fulfil the pre-orders

  6. James Giraffe says:

    I’ve ordered from your store, Paul. I was umming and arring (no idea how you spell that!), but decided to take the plunge.

    Thanks! :-)

  7. Gareth Jones says:

    All that she wants is another box set….

  8. rebecca says:

    hi Paul, will this re-print be different packaging wise from the first edition or exactly the same?

  9. Larry Davis says:

    Agree, good they repressed some more…surprised the original run sold out…mine is supposedly arriving on Monday according to USPS tracking, so been waiting with baited breath…but I’ve been getting a lot of music orders lately, so the wait for this set is not so painful…

  10. WILLIAM ENGLAND says:

    See! All those nay-sayers when first announced… If you do a retrospective properly (yes, by including all the remixes, that’s the point), it will sell and i’m glad the first run sold out and they are reprinting. Hopefully this will encourage other labels to do similar boxes for artists with a smaller fan-base than, say Pink Floyd.

    Do I want to see a box for Stephen Duffy’s Because We Love You – yes. Do I want it to contain ALL the mixes of I Love You – oh YES!… that’s the point.

  11. NTG says:

    Any infos about the remastering?

  12. Jonathan Riley says:

    since this was limited to begin with, is this the last reprint this set is getting,
    I am just asking since I have noticed a lot of companies have been doing this recently, saying something is limited and then upping the print run

  13. Michael says:

    I wish they would reprint the Bananarama singles box. the funny thing for me was I planned to finally order it the day they announced the trio reunion. Predictably I lost my chance.

  14. Atiq says:

    Phew, Glad to see that as I was so slow to decide if I wanted it or not, but this time got it ordered.

  15. Kauwgompie says:

    Paul, any indication how many more will be printed? Just curious how long it will be available this time.

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      500 I think, so they won’t be around for long either, I reckon…

      • Jonathan Riley says:

        and is the last reprint of the box set if someone was to miss the 1st printing and now the 2nd printing
        I am asking for anyone who is interested on here, since i got the first printing from amazon.co.uk and it’s a amazing set

        • Paul Sinclair says:

          I don’t know, but I’d say it probably will be… Quite unusual for them to do this (didn’t do it with Paul Young, for example…)
