Legendary Aussie rockers Cold Chisel have announced the release of an expanded and updated version of their best-selling album All For You – The Best Of on Friday 28 September 2018.
The Best Of Cold Chisel – All For You – Deluxe Edition will be available across multiple formats, including a 37-song double CD, a digital version for streaming and download platforms as well for the first time, on vinyl. The vinyl release features 26 Cold Chisel classics and is a beautiful 180g double-vinyl package with gatefold artwork and coloured inside sleeves.
This expanded release features tracks spanning the band’s 40+ years – from their timeless and anthemic first single ‘Khe Sanh’, to the well-known Cold Chisel classics. The album also includes recent gems from the band’s critically-hailed 2012 album No Plans, and from their chart-topping 2015 album The Perfect Crime. The two albums were recorded after the release of the original 20 song version of All For You – The Best Of.
When the band compiled the album in 2011 they took the unusual step of asking their fans what songs to include. An incredible 10,000+ votes were received and while it confirmed that their audience obviously loved their best-known songs, there were also some great surprises. In preparation for this new edition the band went back to 2011’s votes and with the expanded double-disc format they were able to include the next most voted songs, revealing their fans’ love of the lesser-known songs.
“This now becomes our definitive and only Best Of collection. It’s great that it includes some of our more obscure songs, songs that we love just as much as our famous recordings. There are songs here written by each band member, songs that were big hits and a couple that have never been played on radio, but they’re loved by our fans. Cold Chisel has always been a strange brew of genres, sounds and personalities – this album captures that,” says front man Jimmy Barnes.
The Best Of Cold Chisel – All For You – Deluxe Edition is released on the band’s own label via Universal Music on Friday, 28 September 2018.
