Coming soon: Georgie Fame – Survival Career Anthology Box set

Well, Universal really is spoiling us. Not content with delivering the wonderful The Whole World’s Shaking box of his early works, it is now offering something even more wide-ranging, the Georgie Fame – Survival Career Anthology Box set.

As the title suggests, this isn’t just ‘Flamingo’ Fame, this is Fame through the years, a career anthology taking us from 1963 through to 2015.

Six discs, containing 110 tracks, 18 of which are previously unreleased. It takes in all of Georgie’s hit singles (three UK chart-toppers among them), as well as notable B-sides, rarities mod classic ‘Somebody Stole My Thunder’, an alternative mix of the much loved blue eyed soul dancer ‘Daylight’, and plenty of key album cuts.

Unreleased tracks include six CBS-era gems (recorded between 1967 and 1970), five numbers from the Island Records sessions captured in the USA in 1974 and 1976, and seven tracks from a live show at the Lyceum, London, in September 1974.

A 48-page hardback book features extensive liner notes from a new interview with Georgie by author Paolo Hewitt, as well as many unseen photographs, ensuring that this is the most comprehensive overview of his career.

All the tracks are listed below and if you want it, the set is available to pre-order now ahead of 25th November 2016 shelf date, Amazon is doing pre-orders for £48.88.
