This is a special boxed set collection of nine Faye Wong's albums from the very first one, titled 'Everything ' when she was known as Shirley 王靖雯 up till Di Dar. This is indeed a very rare special collection set that I have scoured all over the place for and finally found the last set in HMV Hong Kong for HKD 585 for this set. Since it was the last set and maybe not very sought after anymore, you can see that the box is rather worn out. No complaints there since the CDs play fine.This CD set evokes memories of the good old days of non stop Faye music playing in my room during high school years.....Ooops! my age revealed! hehe. As any Faye fan will tell you, one can never get bored of her music because they are really good,well produced and her voice is almost flawless. And if not for Faye Wong, I wouldn't have started listening to chinese songs and learnt reading chinese from karaoke singing sessions.
Unfortunately, this set only comprises her earlier cantonese albums but not her famous mandarin albums like 迷 ( Mesmerized) and 天空(Sky).
I just saw the dvd version of Faye's first concert in HK Coliseum1994 available...will order that because when it first came out, it was vhs and there's no way to watch vhs these days since no one owns a vcr anymore.
I know that this post is a bit out of the theme of this blog but I just want to share something so precious with others who like Faye's music. If you want to get this set, maybe you can try to contact HMV Hong Kong or try Yesasia.com.
It would be awesome if I could post this entry in chinese but I think I will spare myself from making an ass of my half bucket full karaoke learnt chinese.
