K's NEW WAVE WOMEN SPECIAL - New Wave Women: The 200 Greatest Songs (Super Deluxe Edition) [2022] (9 x CD's)

 

K's NEW WAVE WOMEN SPECIAL   -      New Wave Women: The 200 Greatest Songs (Super Deluxe Edition) [2022] (9 x CD's)

I thought this might be a great follow up to this week's very well received K-tells new wave set.  I was very much inspired by this photo which popped up on Facebook last year...

It was one of several shots taken by Michael Putland:     https://michaelputland.com/blondie-siouxsie/

Ladies Tea Party: Debbie Harry (Blondie), Viv Albertine (The Slits), Siouxsie Sioux (Siouxsie & the Banshees), Chrissie Hynde (Pretenders), Poly Styrene (X-Ray Spex), and Pauline Black (The Selector) (clockwise left to right) London, August 1980.

I thought it would be a cool idea to compile the 200 greatest songs of new wave women, either as solo artists, or female fronted bands from the new wave era from the late 70's, 80's and into the early 90's.  There has never been a compilation on this scale to collect such a wide array of new wave/post punk female artists.

Hope you enjoy my final selection of many of the biggest records from this period, plus there are several shots from the photo session included in the Artwork folder. Compiled as always using the very latest and highest quality digital remasters for superior sound quality and enjoyment.

Enjoy!
