Everything But The Girl / New deluxe reissues coming


Edsel Records will release a second wave of Everything But The Girl reissues in November 2013.

The three deluxe editions will be The Language Of Life (1990), Worldwide and the Acoustic EPs, (1991-2) and Amplified Heart (1994).

Like last year, when the early albums were re-released, Ben Watt and Tracey Thorn have helped at every stage of the process, sourcing demos, rarities and memorabilia for the releases.

These will be packaged as before, with casebound books containing two-CD sets. Bonus discs will contain  B-sides, remixes, plus previously unreleased demos and live tracks.

So I wonder when Walking Wounded and Temperamental will be along…….


I’m a little confused… I’ve seen a version of “Eden” and “Love Not Money’ that have all the tracks that the Edsel versions do, but without the BBC live tracks. Are these Boots or are there a few different versions?

The real treasures will be if they get to Walking Wounded and Tempermental. Both masterpieces. There is precious little in live recordings from the tours they did to promote those albums and hopefully that will be corrected with the deluxe releases.


Totally agree. Amazing albums. Naturally there will be a lot of remixes to go with these – hopefully they’ll commission some new ones (Ben remixes included)!


Great news and not too long to wait either.

PLEASE let this batch sound less shrill and tinny (i.e. compressed) than the first batch. i had to hang-on to my originals because of the poor (or at least substandard) remastered sound quality. in the case of EBTG, i actually wish there were NO remastering, just compiling and repackaging works for me – the original recordings are stunning!


Interested in what they will do with The Language Of Life, since Ben seems to dismiss that album now.


I actually squealed when I read this. I cannot wait for these.


Can’t wait. Curious to see what might end up on The Language Of Life.


…tracklist, please!!!
