    Wow... I'm tempted to get this, I was a HUGE fan in the nineties. Feeling nostalgic just looking at this.

    Wow..but what I don't get is how on earth do they get acts such as David Morales, Todd Terry, Junior Vasquez, and Frankie Knuckles to remix for them and never release it

    30th anniversary 11CD+DVD box set

    Following the announcement of the coloured vinyl box set, Demon Music will release an Ace of Base 30th anniversary CD box set. The set is called All That She Wants: The Classic Collection and features 11 CDs with all four albums and an unfeasibly large amount of bonus material, as well as a DVD with promo videos.

    The albums in question are Happy Nation (1993), The Bridge (1995), Flowers (1998) and Da Capo (2002). In this set, the first two are expanded to two-CDs, while Flowers is a three-CD set, and Da Capo is a single disc with nine bonus tracks appended. The extra material includes classic and previously unreleased remixes from such big name remixes such as David Morales, Todd Terry, Junior Vasquez, and Frankie Knuckles.

    But as if that is not enough, there is a further three bonus CDs including two discs of Hidden Gems and a CD called Edge of Heaven which features previously unavailable versions of the shelved 1996 single, plus a selection of new and revisited mixes including ‘Always Have, Always Will’, remixed for the very first time by Matt pop. This disc also features a live recording of Jonas, Jenny, Linn and Ulf’s first-ever performance together in their hometown of Gothenburg in August 1990.



    The DVD (NTSC, region-free) contains all the group’s original promo videos plus an additional 10 bonus videos of alternates.

    All That She Wants features dozens of new-to-CD tracks and nearly 20 audio tracks completely previously unreleased. In total there’s 195 audio tracks as well as the videos.

    The presentation is similar to the M People box. Small lift-off lid box containing albums card wallets (Happy Nation, The Bridge, Flowers and Hidden Gems are gatefolds). This also comes with a 52-page booklet with sleeve notes, photos, lyrics and an illustrated discography.

    All That She Wants: The Classic Collection will be released on 26 June 2020, via Edsel.

    Mega selling Swedish pop group Ace of Base‘s first four studio albums are reissued in a new coloured vinyl box set called All That She Wants: The Classic Albums.

    The albums in question are Happy Nation (from 1993 – later reissued as The Sign), The Bridge (1995), Flowers (1998) and Da Capo (2002). These are pressed on 180g coloured vinyl; green, red, blue and yellow, respectively.




    The records all feature original artwork and printed inner sleeves and are housed in a rigid board outer slip case. This box marks the vinyl debut of Da Capo.

    Ace Of Base’s debut has sold more than 20m copies worldwide and features the international number one ‘All That She Wants’ as well as ‘The Sign’. The group’s success inevitably tailed off with each subsequent long-player, but they still enjoyed six further UK top 40 hits from the other three albums gathered within this new box.

    All That She Wants: The Classic Albums will be released on 3 April 2020, via Demon Records.

    Guys... do you remember a few yrs ago a choppy and relatively lifeless demo of Ace of base's All that she wants sang by Britney was leaked to the net?!

    Guess what?! I just found out 3 months ago another demo version now coupled with ace of base's new vocals and punchy instrumentals along with Brit vocals has been available as a leak over youtube! & Boy! Whatta fantastic thing it has turned out! I wished it would have been released somehow... stunning! The new vocals and arrangements have turned this epic song into a modernized monster hit! This one could have conquered European radio rotations as easy as A B C !

    Yes, but Jenny has quit the band, no?

    I was a huge fan of AoB in the nineties, but without Linn and Jenny it's just not the same and I'm not really interested. Don't even know the name of the new chicks.

    She hasn't actually been in the limelight for years.
    She refused to do interviews or pose for cameras and they made excuses for her all this time.
    Think she had had enough last November and quit the band.
    They're all siblings except one of the guys I think?

    Aww Jenny looks a bit "wrong", she was gorgeous when they did the "Flowers" album.

    The guy on the left NEVER ages, botox maybe?! Love the fat beardy one too.

    Plym's right, I think Linn is a recluse these days - she hated the fame, they blurred her in photos and videos and hasn't done an interview in ten years! Considering she was the lead singer at the beginning it's weird.

    Just look at the album cover, she's all sad and "ghostly" in the background

    what is with the 'goth' pic?

    Jenny looks like Cher.

    Anyways excited about this, hope the single is early summer though. Shame the tour wont be likely to be until later in the year. I'd like to see them.

    Linn is the blonde one, from the Flowers era she wanted to have more of a backing role in the band, most people think it's because she didn't like the fame and she had strained her voice.

    I heard Love For Sale yesterday, it's great Mercy Mercy is my favourite b-side though!
