Paul Young / The CBS Singles Collection / 20-disc CD singles box set

19CD+DVD box • Compiled by SDE’s Paul Sinclair • 1500 SIGNED sets


Early next year Edsel will issue The CBS Singles Collection, a new Paul Young box set which includes every UK single issued on the CBS label as a CD single, packed with mixes, B-sides, instrumentals and even the odd unreleased demo. The box set also includes a DVD with all the videos which (issued on the format for the first time), and the first 1500 boxes come with a print SIGNED by Paul Young.

After working with Cherry Red in 2013 on the Remixes and Rarities compilation, and then two years later with Sony on the Tomb of Memories anthology, in the last year or so I have been collaborating with Edsel and Paul Young himself on this very box set. All 19 of Young’s UK CBS singles (originally issued between 1982-1994) are featured on individual CDs that replicate original artwork and include almost every variant available from the archive, including original seven-inch mixes, 12-inch mixes, alternate mixes, rare instrumentals, B-sides, extra tracks on so on.

CD 2 alone – which is  ‘Love of the Common People’ – provides almost an hour of music, including as it does the original version of the song from 1982, the 1983 re-release, the 12-inch version, various live tracks, the instrumental (unreleased outside of Japan) and the demo of B-side ‘Tender Trap’ (first discovered in the archives when I was researching the Tomb of Memories anthology).

The box journeys through the singles from five albums No Parlez (1983), The Secret Of Association (1985), Between Two Fires (1986), Other Voices (1990) and the last long-player issued on CBS, 1993’s The Crossing. While the early period can broadly be defined at the ‘hit years’ there’s some fine treasures in the later era, including the brilliant lead single from The Crossing ‘Now I Know What Made Otis Blue’ (with two high quality non-album tracks on the CD single), Paul’s cover of Crowded House‘s ‘Don’t Dream It’s Over’ (which in this set includes Dutch single ‘I’m Only Foolin’ Myself’, and Japanese duet ‘Come On In’) and ‘Heaven Can Wait’ a 45 from Other Voices, a song which features a fine vocal contribution from Chaka Khan and David Gilmour on guitar!



The physical box set has an inner ‘drawer’ (not shown on the visual above) which contains the 20 discs and a 36-page booklet with notes from yours truly and single cover art from across this era. That drawer then slides into the outer box which features a young Paul (see what I did there?) from the No Parlez era and the all important Paul Young ‘crest’ which I dusted down and revived for the Tomb of Memories set and is your badge of quality for this new CBS Singles Collection.

Some of Paul Young’s videos turned up on a companion VHS when the From Time to Time compilation was issued in 1991, but they have never been issued on DVD and certainly promos for all the UK CBS singles have never been compiled together. That finally changes with the inclusion in this box set of the final DVD, which collects 18 videos (the reason it isn’t 19 is because there wasn’t a video for ‘Iron Out The Rough Spots’!).

The icing on the cake with this new set is that it comes with an A4 print of Paul Young SIGNED by the man himself. It’s also excellent value at £55, which is less than £3 per disc.

The CBS Singles Collection box set will be released on 25 January 2019. Use the pre-order button below (or this link) to secure this signed and SDE-curated item direct from the SDE shop or you can order via Amazon.
