Lovely Creatures: The Best of Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds (1984-2014)

In May, BMG Rights Management will issue Lovely Creatures: The Best of Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds (1984-2014), a comprehensive overview of the band’s recorded work available in a number of different configurations.

The 30-year span of this set starts with music from their debut From Her To Eternity and takes the story up to 2013’s Push The Sky Away. This collection was apparently originally due for release in 2014, which explains why it’s not quite the complete story, since the band have of course issued their 16th studio album, Skeleton Tree, since then.


Deluxe edition boasts four discs and a 36-page hardcover book

There are a number of editions available, including the deluxe, which comprises three CDs of music and a DVD with two hours of rare and unseen footage – available to pre-order for a very reasonable £18. That same four-disc set is available as a super deluxe edition – the difference being that it’s packaged with a 256-page book has has a groovier cover design. In the UK this is about £20 more than the deluxe version.


Limited super deluxe edition has same audio/video as deluxe but includes 256-page book.

Interestingly, the two-CD edition doesn’t just repeat the 30 tracks on the first two discs of the deluxe, rather it contains 22 tracks sequenced completely differently. These same 22 songs are included on a 3LP vinyl edition of Lovely Creatures – which like the deluxe, is good value at just £19.99).


2CD Edition of Lovely Creatures

The album was compiled largely by Nick Cave and Mick Harvey and Cave had the following to say about it: “This release is designed to be a way into three decades of music making. That’s a lot of songs. The songs we have chosen are the ones that have stuck around, for whatever reason. Some songs are those that demand to be played live. Others are lesser songs that are personal favourites of ours. Others are just too big and have too much history to leave out.”

Lovely Creatures The Best of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds 1984 – 2014 will be released on 5 May 2017. Full track listings are below.
