• BONNIE TYLER needs little introduction: from the late 1970s to the late 1980s, she was one of the most popular British singers with a truly unique and amazing voice, a string of classic hits and a legion of fans.
• REMIXES AND RARITIES is a new compilation devoted to the hard-to-find tracks scattered across Bonnie’s prolific career, from her earliest recordings for RCA in the late Seventies to her time with Hansa in the early Nineties, including many overlooked non-album tracks.
• Released with the blessing of Bonnie’s management, Remixes And Rarities includes several highly collectable tracks which were only issued in South America or Japan; numerous tracks which have never graced CD before; and others which are long-out-of-print.
• Among the many other highlights are extended versions of such classic hits as ‘Total Eclipse Of The Heart, ‘Holding Out For A Hero’, ‘Bitterblue’ and ‘If You Were A Woman (And I Was A Man)’.
• Compiled and annotated by devoted fan Liam Brigg with help from Bonnie’s army of collectors, this 2-CD is a must for all fans of Ms Tyler.
• The comprehensive liner notes include recent interviews with collaborators on some of Bonnie’s rarest tracks, including Peter Oxendale, Greek musicians Mihalis Rakintzis and Sofia Arvaniti and producer Nicky Graham. They also provide background info about Bonnie’s most obscure tracks.
• While there have been over 150 compilations of Bonnie Tyler, Remixes And Rarities is the most thorough, comprehensive and unique, in terms of the concept, the tracks chosen, the liner notes and the artwork.
• This latest double-disc set follows previously popular Remixes And Rarities titles on Cherry Pop by Paul Young, the Thompson Twins, Bucks Fizz and A Flock Of Seagulls.
