This June will see the release of a five-disc Kirsty MacColl box set that summarises her time with Virgin Records  titled Days (1988 – 1991) .

This 4CD+DVD set effectively brings together new double-disc deluxe editions of Kite(1989) and Electric Landlady (1991). These are similar – but not identical – to the previous 2012 reissues and in total, Days delivers 33 non-album b-sides and 12-inch mixes. Both albums were produced by her husband Steve Lillywhite and delivered many great singles, although only Days from the former and Walking Down Madison from the latter were proper hits.

Kirsty MacColl always attracted great musicians and during this period she worked with the likes of Johnny Marr, David Gilmour, Mark Nevin, Pete Glenister, Elliott Randall and some great Latin musicians from New York.

A DVD completes this new set and includes the seven promo videos Kirsty made for the albums and an 18-minute EPK (electronic press kit) for the Electric Landlady album. This set is presented as a ‘media book’ package which includes credits, lyrics and biographical information by Alan Robinson.

Additionally, Kite will be issued as a clear vinyl pressing and Electric Landlady as a PINK vinyl LP, All three physical releases are due to be released on 15th June 2018, via Edsel.
