Amy Winehouse Box Set Coming in November
Amy Winehouse didn’t have time to record a lot of music during her short lifetime, but believe it or not, fans still haven’t heard the last of her unreleased material. In fact, the BBC is planning to release a CD/DVD box set of live performances in the next few weeks.
The set, sensibly dubbed ‘Amy Winehouse at the BBC,’ brings together 14 live cuts from sessions she did for the BBC, along with a DVD containing a variety of material — including her 2007 performance at London’s Porchester Hall, TV appearances, interviews and what Contactmusic refers to as “assorted musical rarities.”
In addition, ‘Amy Winehouse at the BBC’ will include a documentary about the singer, titled ‘Amy Winehouse: The Day She Came to Dingle.’ The film recently aired on British television but will be new to most American viewers — as will the majority of the performances collected on the ‘BBC’ set.
The announcement comes amid a miniature flurry of Winehouse news, roughly timed to coincide with what would have been her 29th birthday. In a ceremony earlier this week, her ashes were buried next to a memorial gravestone in North London, and days before that, her namesake charitable foundation announced that it has raised several hundred thousand dollars in the year since her untimely death.
