Basia – The Sweetest Illusion (Deluxe Edition Album, 2016)

I’m excited about an album that I recently bought, it’s Basia’s 1994 album, “The Sweetest Illusion” deluxe edition, which was re-released last December 2016. This was a late Christmas present to myself; however, I’m glad I finally got it! The album includes a detailed booklet with three CD’s: the re-mastered album; non-album tracks and an instrumental version of the album; plus a disc full of remixes all housed in a very nice presentation fold-out CD case.

For those who don’t know, Basia Trzetrzelewska was once the singer in the pop/jazz band Matt Bianco in the early 1980’s. Their UK hits included “Half A Minute”, “Get Out Of Your Lazy Bed”, and “Whose Side Are You On”. Basia then left the band in the mid 80’s to follow a solo career, and she is very well respected in the jazz community around the world.

If you like Basia, but missed her album, “The Sweetest Illusion”, the first time round, you will definitely like this expanded deluxe edition released by Cherry Records. This is a very nice collectors set, so what are you waiting for, get your copy now! Check out the ad for the expanded album and videos below – enjoy!

A special mention goes out to Matt Bianco member, Mark Fisher, who passed away in December 2016 – Mark Fisher (3rd December 1959 – 12th December 2016) R.I.P.
