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 second album “Select” was a UK Top 20 hit when originally released in 1982. It includes the hit singles ‘Cambodia’ (UK No. 12, Australia No. 2) and ‘View From A Bridge’ (UK No. 16, Australia No. 2).

Bonus tracks include the previously unreleased out-take ‘He Will Be There’, the non-album single ‘Child Come Away’ (UK No. 43), the Japanese single ‘Bitter Is Better’ and two B-sides (‘Watching For Shapes’ and ‘Just Another Guy’.

Also included are a host of brand new ‘19:82’ remixes. None of the singles from “Select” were ever originally issued as 12” mixes but, exclusively for this release, new mixes of ‘Cambodia’, ‘View From A Bridge’ and ‘Child Come Away’ 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 ‘Cambodia’, ‘View From A Bridge’ and ‘Child Come Away’, plus two performances from Top Of The Pops and one on the BBC’s Nationwide Special: The British Rock & Pop Awards.

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!
