By Classic Pop | April 27, 2023
Wham! are to release a major new boxset of all 11 of their singles.
Wham! The Singles: Echoes From The Edge Of Heaven is a special, limited edition 7″ vinyl carry case containing all the pair’s singles (A and B sides) in replica sleeves plus a Wham! Christmas message 7″.
The boxset is released on 7 July.
An accompanying hardback book includes liner notes on each single plus photos and more. A cassette of bonus mixes, a solid metal key ring, badge, postcards and numbered certificate complete this set.
George and Andrew released 11 singles as Wham!, incredibly, five of them (Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go, Freedom, Last Christmas, I’m Your Man and The Edge Of Heaven) were British No.1s. Meanwhile, in the United States, Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go, Careless Whisper and Everything She Wants were chart toppers: remarkably, all three were from the same album, Make It Big, which sold six million copies in America alone.
Elsewhere, the boys topped the charts in a host of countries, including Australia, Canada, France, Holland, Italy, Ireland, South Africa and Switzerland.
You can pre-order the boxset now.
