Two Cilla Black albums are released for the very first time on CD in this stunning new 2 disc set, created with the blessing and input of Cilla’s Estate. The first disc is the all-new 2019 edition of Cilla’s best-selling “Especially For You” album from 1980. This Revisited edition debuts stunning new mixes of all of the album’s songs following the discovery of the original multi-track session masters. The second disc is a new collection, “Classics & Collectibles”, that collates fans’ favourites alongside other musical treats and rarities as recorded between 1976 and 1993.

For this edition, “Especially For You: Revisited”, engineer Ted Carfrae has revisited the original studio multi-track sessions, as initially produced by Bruce Welch of The Shadows, in order to create brand new updated mixes of each song. These new versions now offer listeners a fresh and contemporary take on this classic album. Of particular interest to Cilla fans is a previously unaired interview with her by former BBC DJ Peter Powell that was recorded in 1980 to promote the album on its first release. There are also special extended versions of ‘When I Need You’ and ‘Do That To Me One More Time’ which both feature previously unheard extra vocals by Cilla.

“Classics & Collectibles” is a new original album of musical treats & rarities for Cilla’s loyal fan base. The album contains various recordings from Cilla’s Estate which were discovered after her sad passing. These include, for the very first time on a Cilla Black album, live concert recordings of her hit single ‘Alfie’ and her two No.1 singles ‘Anyone Who Had A Heart’ and ‘You’re My World’.

Also featured are all of Cilla’s A-side singles that she released during the 80s and 90s. These include the catchy theme tune to her hit ITV series Surprise, Surprise, as featured on her 1985 album “Surprisingly Cilla”. Other highlights include the title song to her 1993 album “Through The Years” (as used in the closing sequence of Cilla – The Musical) and unforgettable duets with Dusty Springfield, Barry Manilow and her dear friend Cliff Richard.

Alongside all these delights are two stage songs from Cilla’s sell-out 1976 revue Cilla at the Palace and three all new and specially commissioned celebratory club remixes from Bronski Beat v Qubiq, Klubkidz and Club Junkies, all with a pleasingly upbeat electro-pop vibe.

The album comes packaged with a 20 page colour booklet richly illustrated with period photos.
