EDDI READER NEW ALBUM ‘THE BEST OF’ AND CONCERT TOUR ANNOUNCED 

EDDI READER THE BEST OF
REVEAL059CDX, DOUBLE CD RELEASED 11/3/2016

The Best of Eddi Reader is the first career spanning compilation by the supremely talented, unique and charismatic Scottish singer. A new double album that collects thirty of her most consistently beautiful, often deeply personal and intimate songs.

“Just perfect – Eddi Reader gets every song just right”
The Sunday Times

“Eddi Reader is one of my favourite singers of all time”
Jools Holland

“One of the great voices in British music”
Acoustic magazine

Featuring material from across Eddi’s prestigious 30 year recording career, The Best of includes the charming acoustic pop of 1988 chart topper Perfect (with Fairground Attraction), right up to her remarkable 2015 versions of the standard Moon River and Amy Winehouse’s Love Is A Losing Game.

Everlasting favourites are in abundance including her 1992 recording of the Fred Neil song Dolphins and 2003’s Wild Mountainside (the poetic ballad written and given to Eddi by partner and songwriter John Douglas, included on the classic Songs of Robert Burns album).

The Best of Eddi Reader gives us a generous insight into her wide ranging artistry and songwriting, time and again showcasing her knack for picking a great song and then making it her own. As Eddi sang on the 1992 track Roses ‘Open up your heart to the passing of time, don’t regret a thing you leave behind’. About the new album Eddi says…

“Every time I record I rarely listen again, so when I do hear something I've done I get surprised and my mind hasn't time to pick it apart - when I listened through to this collection I found myself reconnecting with every chord, melodic shift, percussion push and vocal thread. It reminded me of myself like little Polaroids. I can't believe how beautiful it is - I am very proud of this music.”
