Without any doubt no fan will be disappointed, these reissues have all been individually assembled and produced with such meticulous attention to detail, making the overall package an extremely tempting buy for any die-hard fan. It really is a 'must-have' item for the collection.

With the compliments of Demon Music Group and Edsel records, we can now exclusively share the very first peek inside these amazing re-issues offering just a small taster and sample of what to expect when you open up your forthcoming copy next month.
Lisa's1989 debut album Affection marked the arrival of a defining voice in British soul, meeting with major critical acclaim and over five million sales worldwide. The unforgettable #1 All Around The World features alongside the club classics This Is The Right Time and What Did I Do To You?, the uplifting Live Together and the US hit You Can't Deny It.
In 1991, Real Love found Lisa fulfilling the promise of her debut with an equally compelling, still more diverse set of songs. An instant contemporary classic, the poignant All Woman features alongside the seductive Time To Make You Mine and the irresistibly uplifting hits Set Your Loving Free and Change.
Perhaps Lisa's most personal work to date, 1993's So Natural included such hits as In All The Right Places (a classic collaboration with the legendary John Barry), the dance floor favourite Little Bit Of Heaven and the intimate title track. Additionally this re-mastered deluxe edition is expanded to feature the Top Ten hit Someday (I’m Coming Back) from The Bodyguard soundtrack,
In 1997, Lisa returned to the top of the charts with her self-titled fourth album. Lisa Stansfield produced such irresistible cuts as The Real Thing and a consummate cover of the Barry White classic Never, Never Gonna Give You Up, while infectious bootleg update of People Hold On hit the Top Five and became the first of four consecutive US club #1s.
Lisa's final album for Arista, 2001's Face Up was both forward-thinking and as timeless as ever, exploring contemporary beats with the garage hit Let's Just Call It Love and mining more classic grooves such as the latter-day Northern Soul favourite 8-3-1. This re-mastered deluxe edition also includes previously unavailable 2003 remixes of the #1 hit All Around The World.
The unmistakable voice of Lisa Stansfield has been a constant presence on the dance floor ever since the breakthrough success of People Hold On with Coldcut in 1989. Over the years since, her classic tracks have been remixed by the cream of clubland from Frankie Knuckles, Masters At Work and David Morales to Ashley Beedle, Massive Attack and The Orb. This re-mastered three-disc anthology Lisa Stansfield - People Hold On…
The Remix Anthology brings together over thirty sought-after and previously unheard full-length mixes, with a 28-page booklet featuring photos, memorabilia, lyrics and brand new sleeve notes.
