About this release

A fine collection of 34 career-spanning tracks.

Smalltown Boy was the first time anyone heard the voice of Jimmy Somerville; the voice of an angel. When Jimmy Somerville first appeared on TV nobody could believe the voice came from this tough, little, feisty Glaswegian who was always punching above his weight. Making the message as important as the music was Jimmy’s aim, yet fame was a burden that he’s still trying to unload; but he succeeded in three careers: as lead singer with Bronski Beat, then with The Communards, and up to the present time as a solo artist. This compilation charts Jimmy’s music from agit prop to songs of love lost and found to raging, horny disco.

A comprehensive collection spanning all three of Somerville’s creative guises across a 25-year
period.

Contains ten Top-20 singles and a host of album tracks and popular remixes.

Artwork and track-listing created with the advice and approval of Jimmy Somerville.

Sleevenotes written by renowned press officer Eugene Manzi, featuring an exclusive interview with Jimmy Somerville himself.
