Love’s Gold: Remastered albums to be released as box set
STOCKHOLM (UPDATED) - "Kärlekens Guld" is the name that's been given to a box set of remastered Marie Fredriksson albums that will be released by EMI Sweden (on the Capitol label) as early as June 10th. The name means "Love's Gold" in English.
The set, to be packaged in an attractive slip cover, will include her five original albums – remastered using state-of-the-art equipment – along with the live recording of the Stockholm "Äntligen" concert that was previously included as a bonus in the DVD package. Each of the five albums will include bonus tracks.
Li Eriksson, who managed the project for EMI, said
"What we've done is basically taken care of Marie's catalog, which obviously is a treasure, and remastered her solo albums. During this summer and fall they will be available in this box 'Kärlekens Guld' and further down the line as separate albums."
"This procedure is not unusual at all," Eriksson told TDR. "Most artist's back-catalogue is being remastered to get the soundpicture updated. It's something record companies
do to preserve their artist's history."
In the spring of 2000, after a relatively long period of silence as a solo artist, Marie and EMI selected her biggest hits and released them on a compilation album called "Äntligen" (which means "Finally" in English). Eriksson says this album has now sold about 290,000 copies making it one of the best-selling albums in Sweden last year.
"A big summer tour followed, and solidified Marie's standing as the biggest Swedish female artist," said Eriksson.
