Cocteau Twins??- Lullabies To Violaine singles and extended plays 1982 - 1996
For the first time all the non-album tracks from across the Cocteau Twins' entire career have been compiled together and offer a unique view of their musical journey from the perspective of all their single/EP releases which incorporate most of their best known tracks.
CTBOX 2: This is an unusual de-luxe package containing all 4 CD's that is available 21 November (Europe) and 6 December in the US (released on special import to key independant stores only) as a worldwide limited edition. The discs are contained in a fold-out package made of a material that itself sounds like a Cocteau Twins title -'Curious Soft Touch Milk'. It's all very tactile, minimal and musically brilliant.
DAD 2513CD and DAD 2514CD: These are the regular versions of the set which will be available spring 2006. Each package is a digipak with 2 CD's. Volume One covers the 4AD era (1982 - 1990) and Volume Two the Mercury/Capitol years (1993 - 1996).
The 4AD material was previously available in a 10 x CD box set which had a CD for each single, though this set features alternative mixes of 'Pearly-Dewdrops' Drops' and 'Aikea-Guinea'. Volume Two has never been anthologised and has tracks that were limited as singles as well as the Christmas tracks 'Frosty The Snowman' and 'Winter Wonderland'. ??
