THIS IS A TWO DISC SET.
AUDIO CD + BONUS DVD!!
The Katrina & The Waves success story began in Canada where the original version of "Walking On Sunshine" was a minor hit in 1983. Altho based in Cambridge, UK, the group landed their first record deal with the now defunct Attic Records label in Canada which released two highly sought after collectible albums; Walking On Sunshine (1983) and Katrina & The Waves 2 (1984).
When the group signed to Capitol-EMI, they re-recorded 12 of the songs for their major label debut, & these two Canada-only lps were quietly deleted and never heard again... until now!
To celebrate the 20th Anniversary of these original recordings, the group is re-united with Ralph Alfonso, the man who originally signed them, to re-release these lost recordings in a deluxe limited edition package. A BONGOBEAT EXCLUSIVE CD!
Please note, this CD includes the original version of "That's Just The Woman In Me" (this song has been covered by Celine Dion for her great new CD, Taking Chances).
