Shakin' Stevens - The Epic Masters Box Set

Releleased: 13. November 2009
Format: Box-Set 10 CD's
Label: Sony Music

The Most Definitive CD Release From Shaky To Date..

All Tracks remastered 2009 !

"The Epic masters has finally arrived and without a shadow of a doubt it is truely stunning. Housed in a superb box, complete with mini album replicas and inner lining notes, a 20 page booklet and fully remastered, we get the nine main epic album releases with a bonus cd of 12" remixes. Cd 1 through to 10 is take one! It's cd debut, followed by this ole house, shaky ( 1st time on cd in the uk), give me your heart tonight (again 1st time on cd in the uk), the bop won't stop, lipstick powder & paint (1st time on cd), let's boogie, a whole lotta shaky, there are two kinds of music...rock 'n roll and a cd of 12" versions.

Many rare tracks and b-sides etc are included on the matching releases which just adds to the importance of this release. These tracks have been overlooked by Shaky himself and many of them have new tweaks and arrangements. This means something new and fresh to listen to for the fans.

The booklet contains great info and pictures of the discography that will take you down memory lane in the old days of vinyl.

The price of this box is a snip for the 147 tracks and love that has been poured into making this the ultimate Shaky experience.

If you think you've heard all these albums before then think again. This is a truely unique experience as you discover the retro sound all over again as never heard before"

At long last Epic give the Uk`s top charting artist of the 1980`s (4 number one singles) the box set he deserves and Shaky had a hand in compiling it too.

Personally a few more alts/unissued would be better than the 12" mix album, which is missing the great Viz sleeved I Might 12" (the only one I ever bought!!), great to get Apron Strings my fav flip at last
