About this release

This exclusive edition contains a photo personally signed by Labi Siffre, limited to Just 500 copies

A 9CD collection entitled ‘My Song’ is the first and definitive Labi Siffre box-set and is released to celebrate  50 years of an outstanding musical career.

A total of 146 recordings – compiled by Labi and including 44 bonus tracks – together with a 32-page picture booklet in which Labi speaks candidly about his career.

Containing all of Labi’s nine albums: Labi Siffre (1970) The Singer and The Song (1971)  Crying Laughing Loving Lying (1972) For The Children (1973) Remember My Song (1975) Happy (1975)  So Strong (1988)  Man of Reason (1991) and The Last Songs (1998), all of which presented individually in its own CD wallet facsimile of the original album sleeve artwork.

It was in 1970 that Labi released his debut album, the eponymously titled “Labi Siffre” and during that decade a further five albums would follow, from which he scored hit singles with “It Must Be Love”, “Crying Laughing Loving Lying” and “Watch Me”. It was in 1981 that the British group Madness enjoyed a top-5 hit with their version of “It Must Be Love”, a song which to this day continues to feature as an essential musical ingredient of celebrations of every kind.

Following a break during the early 80s, Labi returned in 1987 with the powerful anti-apartheid anthem “(Something Inside) So Strong” a  song perennially appreciated around the world and reputed to be a favourite of Nelson Mandela. The album “So Strong” was followed in 1992 by Labi’s penultimate album “Man Of Reason” and then in 1998 by his final album “The Last Songs” remastered in 2020 especially for this set and containing two newly recorded bonus tracks.

Today Labi’s music is sampled by many; most notably his recording “I Got The…” sampled extensively by Eminem for his debut worldwide hit “My Name Is” and “My Song” sampled by Kanye West for one of his greatest hits “I Wonder”.
