• alarm In the Poppy Fields: Collected Works (4 CD + DVD boxed set, £39.95)

    This release brings together every single recording of Mike Peters and The Alarm’s modern masterpiece into one comprehensive 5 disc collection. Every single song of the original work has been remixed, re-focused and reappraised by Mike Peters from the ground up from the original recordings. “The original project was so intense”, says Mike Peters, “and the deadlines so tight in making 5 albums in 5 months, that I have always wanted to go back to every single recording and give them all the individual attention that they deserved. ‘In The Poppy Fields Collected Works’ is like hearing a brand new album as it brings all the work together in one complete package which is how it is best experienced. I’m very proud of each and every second of the listening experience”. In The Poppy Fields Collected Works also comes with a double disc set of the songs as performed live at The Gathering over the course of the project’s original creation timeframe from 2000 – 2004 plus an intensely personal 8000 word essay by Mike Peters and an extensively detailed booklet with many previously unseen photographs. The Edward Henry Street suite of 14 songs can now be seen and heard as a film which was shot and edited by Mike Peters himself along with 9 of the original ‘Fun In The Sun’ documentary recordings (that formed the beginnings of ‘Edward Henry Street’), for the first time ever.The DVD Film disc also includes a never before seen film of The Alarm live at the San Siro Stadium, Milan from June 6th 2002. This multi camera film was the source for the original ‘Close’ promotional video but now you can witness the entire concert in glorious widescreen. The ‘In The Poppy Fields Collected Works’ 5 disc set features some 110 performances and approximately 6 hours of viewing and listening time.Track Listing: Disc 1 In The Poppy Fields Collected Works: Everafter; Alone Together; Free Inside; Resurrection; Safe Houses; The Innocent Party; When Everything Was Perfect; The Normal Rules Do Not Apply; Swan Song; My Defences; It Happens ; The Life You Seek Does Not Exist; When You Can’t Have What Everybody Else Has; How Long And How Much Longer; The Search For The Real Life; Few And Far Between; Terms And Conditions; You’re Only Young [And Innocent] Once; With Friends Like You Who Needs Enemies; In The Poppy Fields - Disc 2 In The Poppy Fields Collected Works: I Never Left I Only Went Away; In The Beauty Of My Surroundings; Raindown; All Seeing; Be Still; Close; The Unexplained; New Home New Life; Contenders; The Drunk And The Disorderly; 45 Rpm; Coming Home; Right Back Where I Started From; True Life; Peace Agreement; Kaleidoscope; Federal Motor Voter; Festival Of Light; Trafficking; The Rock And Roll - Disc 3 In The Poppy Fields – Live At The Gathering: Coming Home; Trafficking; Close; How Long And How Much Longer; In The Beauty Of My Surroundings; Contenders; When Everything Was Perfect; Few And Far Between; The Rock And Roll; Normal Rules; Right Back Where I Started From; 1959; The Crescent; Edward Henry Street; Wherearewegoingandwhatarewegoingtodowhenwegetthere?; Up Downtown; In You I See The World; Bank Holiday; Mercenary Skank; It’s Going To Be A Good Year; Swansong - Disc 4 In The Poppy Fields – Live At The Gathering: Innocent Party; True Life; Kaleidoscope; Free Inside; It Happens; Festival Of Light; In The Poppy Fields; Federal Motor Voter; The Unexplained; Resurrection; When You Can’t Have What Everybody Else Has; The Drunk And The Disorderly; In The Poppy Fields - Fun In The Sun Documentary Recordings: Fun In The Sun; Height Of Summer; Waiting For Summer; Seafarers Tune; Knickerboker Glory; Hit The Town; Golden Sands; A Place In The Sunshine; It’s Going To Be A Good Year - Original In The  Poppy  Fields  Demo  Tapes: Free Inside; Trafficking - In The  Poppy  Fields  B-Side: Conscientious Objector [2012 Remix] - Disc 5 Dvd: The Alarm Live At San Siro Stadium June 6th 2002 (44 Mins.)
