In celebration of the career of Kirsty MacColl, ‘See That Girl’ 1979-2000 is a brand new

 eight CD boxset that brings together 161 tracks recorded between 1979 and 2000. 

Compiled in collaboration with Kirsty’s estate, it features 47 previously unreleased

 recordings including her second album ‘Real’, recorded in 1983 but was never released.

‘See That Girl’ 1979-2000 is released on 27 October 2023 on CD and digitally.

‘Lullaby For Ezra’, a previously unreleased track recorded at the end of 1982/early 1983

 is available to stream now. Written by Kirsty with Lu Edmonds it was originally set for

inclusion on ‘Real’.

An additional limited edition 7-inch of ‘You Caught Me Out’ (A) and ‘Boys’ (B) is also to

 be released on 27 October. Originally scheduled for release on the iconic Stiff Records

 label in October 1979, it was allocated the catalogue number BUY 57, but was never

 released. The A-Side was written by Kirsty with Simon Crowe and Pete Briquette of the

 Boomtown Rats and the picture sleeve uses an unpublished contemporary photo of the

 trio taken by acclaimed photographer Adrian Boot, and is sure to become a collectors

 item for fans of Kirsty and of the label.

Alongside all of Kirsty’s singles, ‘See That Girl’ 1979-2000 includes album favourites, 

extended versions, B-Sides and bonus tracks, previously unreleased demo recordings, 

live sets form the Glastonbury Festival in 1992, and the Jazz Café, London in 1999, plus 

studio sessions and live performances originally recorded for BBC radio and television. 

The final disc is a selection of collaborations with other artists, as either singer or 

songwriter, and further illustrates how in-demand and versatile Kirsty’s extraordinary 

talents were.

The whole set is contained in a 24cm x 24cm slipcase with the eight discs packaged in two 

gatefold sleeves. A 60-page hardback full colour book features new and extensive sleeve notes 

from respected author and journalist Jude Rogers, who beautifully walks through the whole 

of Kirsty’s life highlighting her inspiration and influence along the way as well as speaking 

with close family, friends and fellow musicians who kindly contribute. There are also rare and 

previously unseen photos.
