Suzanne Vega / Close-Up series 6-disc deluxe hardcover book


Suzanne Vega‘s Close-Up series started back in 2010 and since that time four volumes have been released with the singer-songwriter reinterpreting large chunks of her catalogue creating four new thematic albums.

The packaging of these individual releases wasn’t very exciting (simple small card sleeves) so it is pleasing to note that April sees the release of a special hardcover book edition celebrating Close-Up that combines all four CDs from the series and offers a fifth CD that collects all the digital-only bonus tracks from the individual album releases.

Suzanne has also included a DVD of her Close-Up show at City Winery in New York City (which also includes a backstage interview and some behind the scenes rehearsal footage) taking the disc tally to six.

This deluxe Close-Up set is released on 28 April 2014

Suzanne mentioned a while ago that an “empty” version containing only the bonus disc and DVD would be available for those who already bought the 4 discs. Hopefully it will be offered on her website.

Definitely recall after she released the first in this series, that Vega told me in person that 3 of the 4 CD’s I bought from the series was “going to receive consideration” if a boxed set was put together in the end. I’m guessing we’re SoL.
