Kim Wilde became an overnight sensation back in 1981 courtesy of the worldwide success of her single ‘Kids In America’, which offered a very British twist on the new wave energy and glamour of Blondie. In due course, Kim would enjoy numerous hits throughout the 1980s, first on RAK Records (with help from father Marty and brother Ricky) and then later on MCA (when she took up songwriting herself and toured with Michael Jackson and David Bowie).

On the back of Kim’s acclaimed recent studio set Here Come The Aliens (and companion live collection), her first three albums, namely “Kim Wilde”, “Select” and “Catch As Catch Can” are being treated to deluxe 2CD+DVD and vinyl reissues. Collectively, this represents the entirety of her output for RAK.

Each album is being presented as a plush 2-CD plus DVD expanded gatefold wallet boasting a raft of previously unissued tracks and new remixes, as well as new coloured vinyl editions. All of the tracks have been remastered from fresh transfers of the original analogue tapes. All of the new and previously unheard material has been given the blessing of Kim herself. Additionally, each package includes lyrics, rare photos and memorabilia plus new sleeve notes written by Kim Wilde expert Marcel Rijs.

Kim’s debut album reached No. 3 in the UK charts when originally issued in 1981, fuelled by the hit singles ‘Kids In America’ (UK No. 2, Australia No. 3, USA No. 25, etc.), ‘Chequered Love’ (UK No. 4, Australia No. 9) and ‘Water On Glass’ (UK No. 11).

Bonus tracks include three B-sides – (‘Shane’, ‘Boys’ and the 7” version of ‘Tuning In Tuning On’).

Also included are a host of brand new ‘19:81’ remixes. None of the singles from this album were ever originally issued as 12” mixes but, exclusively for this release, new mixes of ‘Kids In America’, ‘Chequered Love’ and ‘Water On Glass’ have been created from the original multi track reels. These include faithful 80s-style extended versions and more radical reinterpretations of these classic hits.

‘The bonus DVD includes promo videos for ‘Kids In America’ and ‘Chequered Love’ (plus a previously unedited “shower” version, which had survived since 1981 only on a VHS tape in Kim’s own collection), and four performances from Top Of The Pops.

Kim Wilde remains a perennial icon of British pop with an adoring global fanbase. Next year, she will continue to enjoy a high profile as she embarks on her lengthy 2020 The Greatest Hits Tour!
