The Beat / Win a set of deluxe reissues

Sorry this competition has now closed. Yossi Barak was the winner! Congratulations!

Another great competition from SuperDeluxeEdition!

We like to think we run the best competitions of any music blog. In recent weeks we have given away a Paul Simon Graceland Super Deluxe box set, a signed World Party Arkeology 5CD set and all four of the recent Everything But The Girl reissues, AND there is still four days left to win a SIGNED Swing Out Sister LP (see our Facebook page for details).

TODAY we would like to offer you the chance to win a set of The Beat‘s three albums in 2CD+DVD deluxe editions – we think they are great and our review can be found here.

Edsel Records have kindly provided us with a brand new sealed SET of these fine reissues to give away to one lucky fan of SuperDeluxeEdition. In total the bundle features six CDs with 96 audio tracks including remixes, B-sides, and radio sessions along with three DVDs featuring Top Of The Pops performances, live performances and more.

To enter this competition simply leave a friendly comment below and pay a visit to Edsel’s Facebook page and give them a ‘like’!

One winner will be randomly picked on Friday 20th July. Good luck!

pick me, pick me


these reissues have been a long time coming…the first one especially is a classic. i’ve never owned them on cd before, its time i did!

Raul Regalado

Great reissues!


Awesome set!


Can’t wait to hear these!


This is the way all reissues should be done. I dug out my 1996 compilation – it sounds good, but these will sound even better!
Good to see that an overlooked band (due to splitting up acrimoniously) gets the reissue treatment.
Next reissues will be Fine Young Cannibals and General Public!

Ross Raihala

I am loving what Edsel’s been doing as of late. My credit card, on the other hand …

Uffe S

An excellent reissue!

Tom Gardner

Great offer from an always interesting site.

Jeremy Bromley

Oooh they’ve got The Beat :)

Steven Berg

I loved The Beat then, and I love The Beat now.

Rob C

Love it! And The Beat are touring Australia for the very first time in August – Dave Wakeling will be playing the hits of The Beat & General Public!

Hope I can win this…this is how reissues should happen!

Brian hack

Awesome! It’s about time. Thank You Edsel, again.

Mark Miller

The Edsel sets are superior to the Shout Factory versions in packaging and content.

Paul Gilronan

Wow! Would love to win this!

Jason Handy

The Beat Complete…yes!!

Michelle Cruz

This box set is the ultimate, because it has all of their works in it, don’t have to look elsewhere it literally a ” complete box set”


Hands off their mine!

Adrian Graham

Great band, wanna win it :o))

Lazlo Nibble

I gave Special Beat Service a serious sit-down listen the other day and I think it finally clicked for me as a full album, end to end. Always loved the singles, but this the the first time it felt like a cohesive whole. So the timing on these reissues is pretty good, ’cause I’m definitely in the mood for some immersion!

Da'Ron Brown

i would love to win these


The folks at Edsel do great deluxe reissues. Love the JAMC series.

Michael Graff



I confess, yes I love The Beat and Edsel records! Such a fantastic package!


As an original 2-tone boy … I deserve them!!


You should make me the prize winner because I have a huge collection of 80′ music….but no Beat. I know, I know, turn in my 80’s cred NOW. I was always more of a Specials & Madness kinda guy. Hit me with the set and show me why I am wrong.

Fritz von Runte

I’d really like to win this one, wow


Looks like a great set of reissues!


Was just reading about these and came to the realization that there are few bands that have recorded a song as perfect as “Save it for Later.” It will be nice if these reissues bring some much-deserved light to this band.


In for this!

Steve Wilcox

The band’s official output might have been only three albums — but what a terrific three albums. And the last track of their last album — Ackee 1-2-3 — has a special place in my heart, as it pulled me out of a deep, dark depression many years ago. It’s fantastic to see them given such special treatment.

Joe Maryon

This is superb. I think this sort of package is the way forward

Alex Sepiol

Amazing contest! Wish me luck…

par satellite

the best reissue of 2012!

David Parker

These look great. Long overdue too. Looking forward to the re-mastered sound and the extra tracks.


Nice one…..

John Matthews

Great reissue packages. Good work.

Andrew Leach

Hello sexy!

Kevin Geddes

Fingers crossed!

Anthony Lamont

Rotating Heads!

Brian Gately

Love this band! Would love to win these reissues.

Jeff Smith

Love The Beat!


saw them at red rocks, spring of ’83, with bowwowow and (a then unknown) rem warming up. one of the best shows i ever saw!



Mark Lavallee

Nice. Please let it be me! These look wonderful and sadly I just can’t afford them right now!


that’s the best reissue package of the year!


Excellent! I already “liked” Edsel for a previous contest (and because they’re very “like”-worthy, of course), so hopefully that will apply here.


Love Edsel! Love these releases!

TJ Jelsema

Would love to win these. The Beat was one of the first bands I saw in person.


Enter me please. Is there any store similar to Suede/The London Suede as to why they went by The English Beat in the U.S. – anyone know??
