Rick Astley / Best of Me signed CD

2LP blue vinyl also available

1980s pop star Rick Astley releases a new greatest hits ‘The Best Of Me’ in October and you can secure a signed CD edition right now.

Astley came to fame via Stock Aitken Waterman in 1987 and enjoyed seven consecutive top 10 singles in the UK with the trio, including the massive global number one Never Gonna Give You Up.

After a couple of long-players with SAW, Rick recorded two further albums with Gary Stevenson co-producing before stepping back from the limelight somewhat in the late 1990s and the new millennium. The album 50 was a surprise return to the top of the charts in 2016 and two years later Beautiful Life was another top ten album.

This new collection has the old hits sitting alongside recent fan favourites such as ‘Keep Singing’, ‘Angels On My Side’ and ‘Try’. The opening track ‘Every One of Us’ is a brand new song and there’s a new ‘Pianoforte’ take on ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’. Disc two (CD only) sees Rick create ‘reimagined’ interpretations of his songs.

The Best Of Me is available as an Amazon UK exclusive SIGNED 2CD edition, a deluxe 2CD package with enhanced packaging (and lyrics and ‘additional imagery’ and a 2LP blue coloured vinyl. Signed deluxe 2CD and other options available via Rick’s store (see widgets below)

The Best Of Me is released on 25 October 2019.

    Good to see the artist store in the widget – will this be a regular feature?

  2. Drawde says:

    Too bad they couldn’t include the RA / Foo Fighters / Nirvana mashup.

  3. bob says:

    Great to see Rick still around after over 30 years, and still with a magnificent head of hair!

  4. Debbie Enticknapp says:

    The signed version is still on Amazon. Just had a look. At first i found the unsigned version but when i typed in Rick Astley signed cd i found the signed version. Its good to have the choice wether you get the standard 2 cd signed version from Amazon for £9.99 (free delivery when you spend £20) or the deluxe edition from Rick`s official webstore for £15 + £3 delivery…

  5. D.K. says:

    Where I can see on amazon, that it’s signed edition? Or it’s gone already.

  6. Daniel ( from Berlin ) says:

    it’s time for SAW to putting out the complete rickastley material ( incl. all instrumentals / backing vocal versions and alternative mixes ) on i-tunes like the did with kylie minogue.
    that’s a thing i am interested in. not another best-of-compilation. sorry.

  7. David Baker says:

    At minimum, they should move “Never Gonna Give You Up (Pianoforte)” to disc 2 and add Rick’s recent cover of “Giant” to disc 1. Including “Superman,” the other single/emphasis track from the unreleased “My Red Book,” to disc 1 would also be a major selling point for me.

  8. mike says:

    Yes, odd that albums 3 (partially) and 4 get ignored. Hopelessly should be on every compilation imho. However, it is his (third) hits compilation so he can do what he likes. More power to him frankly and may his comeback roll on sweetly and others learn from it…

  9. Jakob says:

    Any indication if the “reimagined” are remixes or re-recordings? And if the latter, “unplugged” or…?

  10. Shane says:

    Thanks for the correction Paul. I ordered the non-deluxe signed cd. Its a steal.

  11. Robert says:

    Had to get one…I’m a big Nick Lowe fan
    All Men Are Liars…..

  12. Shane says:

    Sorry which edition is signed? One-disc only?

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      Sorry, I don’t think there is a one-CD edition now. Just 2CD standard and 2CD deluxe. It’s the standard that’s getting signed. May be wrong, but hopefully not.

  13. Gareth Jones says:

    It’s good to have all these songs together, forever

  14. Jamie Barr says:

    Rick-rolled by SDE!

  15. MARK LEVY says:

    Is he splitting up ;)

  16. Alex says:

    Why not :)

  17. Auntie Sabrina says:

    Ah, like the recent(ish) Kylie Hits package. Rick recorded a cover of Rag ‘n’ Bone Man’s ‘Giant’ so I’m hoping this is included too.

  18. seikotsi says:

    why are the deluxe by rick astley and the non -deluxe by Kick Fast? ;)

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      Thanks!

    • Alessandro says:

      Curious choices. It’s a double CD yet “My Arms Keep Missing You”, “Don’t Say Goodbye” (a single in some territories), “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg” are missing from his PWL years. “Free” is only represented by “Cry For Help” and there is NOTHING from Body and Soul.

      From “Keep It Turned On” we get “Sleeping”, while nothing comes from “Portrait”.
      To include “Lights Out” is a good move, since it was only released as a single.

  19. Auntie Sabtina says:

    The link to the signed edition says it’s a 2 CD, a mistake on Amazon’s part but you can always cancel once it’s sorted out then?

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      Actually, I reckon they are both 2CD but the ‘deluxe’ is probably ‘enhanced’ packaging (like hardcover book).
