Preview: The Anthology - Belinda Carlisle (3-CDs/2-DVDs)

Artist: Belinda Carlisle
Title: The Anthology
Release Date: March 17, 2014
Label: Demon UK
Format(s): 3-CDs/2-DVDs, DD

Foreign record companies release the best sets. Case in point, a brand new solo career retrospective for ex-Go-Go Belinda Carlisle. Demon UK's The Anthology includes three CDs of music plus two DVDs of video and will be out March 17.

Discs 1 and 2 collect Carlisle's singles, including such hits as Heaven is a Place on Earth, I Get Weak, Mad About You and Circle in the Sand. Disc 3 has five rarities along with Live in Tokyo 2013, a fourteen song performance that combines her biggest solo hits with songs from the Go-Go's era.

DVD 1 is a collection of 28 videos made for her catalog while DVD 2 includes thirteen performances on the BBC, an Electronic Press Kit for Place on Earth: Greatest Hits and three TV ads.

The set is packaged in a 12" x 12" photo book with new sleeve notes by Justin Kantor.

The Demon Music Group reacted to the missing track In Your Wildest Dreams with the following note:
The ‘rarities’ listed represent the tracks that our licensing department were able to secure contractually after many months of work. We are aware that In Your Wildest Dreams is missing, but rest assured that a lot of time was spent trying to secure it, ultimately unsuccessfully. We will continue to attempt to licence it for a future project, but our researches in tape libraries around the globe (and with staff who worked at IRS at the time) have not so far managed to turn up a master for the track. Does anyone know of the existence of a master without the film’s sound effects on it?
