SHAKIN’ STEVENS / Fire in the Blood: The Definitive Collection

Shakin Stevens / Fire in the Blood: The Definitive Collection 19CD box set

19 CD deluxe set • Signed by Shaky!

BMG will, in November, issue Fire in the Blood: The Definitive Collection, a massive career-spanning box set featuring the work of Welsh singer and songwriter Shakin’ Stevens.

The 19-CD box set features all of Shaky’s albums as a solo artist, from his first signing and album on Track Records, to his latest studio album, Echoes Of Our Times and it also comes with four CDs of rarities.

Shaky was a chart sensation in the UK in the 1980s, in fact, he was the biggest selling singles artist of that decade – no mean feat when you consider how big groups like Wham! and Frankie Goes To Hollywood were. But he just kept going and they didn’t! Stevens enjoyed 15 British top ten hits in the 1980s and four UK number ones.


Fire in the Blood: The Definitive Collection is a 19CD box set

In total, this set contains 266 tracks and notable inclusions are a live concert recorded at the Paris Theatre, London for BBC Radio 1 in 1980 and the four rarities discs are packed with B-sides, 12-inch mixes, two previously unreleased tracks and more.

This CD box set comes packaged in a 12″ x 12″ hardcover book and contains an extended essay by Paul Sexton. It also includes the following:

  • Reproduced promo poster
  • ‘Oh Julie’ sheet music
  • 3 x 12-inch art prints of Shakin’ Stevens
  • 36-page Bespoke Tour Programme
  • Autograph book, personally signed by Shakin’ Stevens

If you prefer your Shaky in bite-sized chunks there will also be a new compilation Singled Out, available on 3-CD or 2-LP. The former contains ALL his UK singles.

Fire in the Blood: The Definitive Collection will be released on 27 November 2020You can pre-order from the official Shaky store, below.
