Sarah Brightman’s latest collections, RARITIES, Volumes 1-3 are released on December 18th, 2015. Each set offers a rare and exciting opportunity to experience the magic of one of the world’s most celebrated vocalists. Culled from a rich assortment of sought-after recordings that were originally unreleased, B-Sides, limited edition releases or demo versions, these compilations contain hidden treasures from Sarah’s vast and stirring repertoire. Tracks are extracted from the master tapes of long sold out special tour edition CDs for the albums Fly (1995) and Harem (2003), the Voce album (a 2014 release available only in Japan), sessions with Gregorian, Schiller, Sash! and other sources.
Among the selections included in this project is a version of Sarah’s disco classic “I Lost My Heart To A Starship Trooper” (originally performed in 1978 with Hot Gossip), the jubilant “Done” and “Sarahbande” from the Japanese Voce collection, the unreleased demo version of “Sky & Sand” and a haunting rendition of “Voyage Voyage” performed with Gregorian. An audio commentary track by Sarah and producer Frank Peterson is included with each compilation. It’s a must-have set for fans and completists, who for years have been paying small fortunes to obtain these musical treasures. All three sets that comprise RARITIES have been digitally remastered.
