Kim Wilde – Pop Don’t Stop (Greatest Hits)

0

Pop Don’t Stop is most definitely the ultimate Kim Wilde collection, arriving in both a 2CD and deluxe 5CD/2DVD box set from Cherry Red Records in August. Since we first heard the unmistakable sound of ‘Kids In America’, the nations favourite 80’s pop star turned gardener has clocked up an impressive 30 UK chart hits and has sold over 30 million records globally. The package features radio edits of many of Kim’s singles, including ‘Cambodia’, ‘You Came’, ‘You Keep Me Hangin’ On’, ‘Love Is Holy’ and ‘Rage To Love’, as well as two brand new tracks – ‘Shine On’, featuring Boy George and ‘You’re My Karma’ with Tom Aspaul.

The set is not arranged in chronological order which may have perhaps allowed the casual listener to better appreciate the way Kim’s sound evolved from the atmospheric early 80’s new wave style of the first couple of albums through the dance, pop and more soulful sounds of her mid-period records. Nevertheless it is evident that even when Kim was no longer topping the charts by the 90’s she was still making great music such as ‘It’s Here’, ‘Time’ and ‘This I Swear’. Kim’s most recent album of original material was 2018’s Here Come The Aliens which was very well received by her loyal fan base, combining both a retro and contemporary sound on singles ‘Pop Don’t Stop’ and ‘Kandy Krush’.

If two discs of Kim’s hits is simply not enough then collectors and connoisseurs are advised to seek out the 7 disc box set; this includes additional singles, as well as B-sides and an eclectic selection of remixes, several of which are making their CD debut. The box also features a deluxe booklet with lyrics and a comprehensive DVD collection.
