ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
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).

KATW are:

* Katrina Leskanich, vocals;
* Kimberley Rew, guitar;
* Vince de la Cruz, bass;
* Alex Cooper, drums.

Produced by Pat Collier (Vibrators, Soft Boys).
THIS IS GUITAR DRIVEN R&B ROCK N ROLL.
PLAY LOUD.

* 20th Anniversary Limited Edition 2 Disc Set (Audio + DVD)
* 24 Tracks. 4 previously unreleased. Completely Remastered
* 24 pages of liner notes. Exclusive interviews with Katrina Leskanich and guitarist Kimberley Rew. Deluxe booklet.
* CD is stickered with key info/press quotes
* Contains ALL the tracks from the first two Katrina & the Waves albums that were released ONLY IN CANADA on Attic Records in 1983 and 1984. 12 of these songs were re-recorded when the group signed to Capitol, the rest have never been heard again until now.

* "Their first Canadian album is a masterpiece of guitar pop..."

Brilliant Sentimental History !
This dual disc CD features 24 tunes, including many that are not available elsewhere. Anyone familiar with the band will appreciate the DVD live show recorded very early on in their career on the second disc. Its definately worth a trip down memory lane, and it doesnt disappoint.
