The Official Fuzzy Warbles Collector's Album

Box set, includes Fuzzy Warbles Volumes One through Eight and bonus CD Hinges in an oversized box with a plastic sleeve, stickers, and the booklet Hit Record and Play: A Brief History of My Home Sound Experiments, by Andy Partridge.

The Ultimate Fuzzy Warble

Andy Partridge - Fuzzy Warbles Collectors Album (9 CD)
Released 16th October 2006
Cat No - APEBOX001
Bar Code - 503 8622 1122 2 6

'The Fuzzy Warbles Collectors Album' brings together over 100 songs from XTC frontman Andy Partridges’ songwriting archive. Recorded over the years, whilst Andy and XTC were signed to Virgin Records and later to the Idea and Ape labels, the material is spread across Eight Volumes featuring songs and alternate versions of many XTC favorites that never made it onto the respective final albums or never made the cut when the final tracklistings were decided. There are also songs Andy never got to complete that he’s re-visited and finished off especially for this Fuzzy Warbles Series.

Each disc has a unique Fuzzy Warbles stamp cover artwork and the collectors box to keep them all in is designed to imitate a stamp album. There is even a bonus CD, Hinges, which features 9 extra tracks only available with this set. Inside each box is a landscape oversized booklet, in which Andy gives a fascinating insight to his recording process with 'A Brief History of Home Taping'. Describing his earliest experiences of recording music at home and the excitement of those first recording sessions it all makes fascinating reading, tinged with just a hint of regret as to how the songwriting process has become so bland as recording technology makes things easier and easier.

The final piece of the Fuzzy Warbles Collectors Album jigsaw is your own sheet of Fuzzy Warbles stamps to play with, if, anyone could ever dare to part with them!
