					Simply Red: ‘Stars’
Special Edition Package of Classic LP
Released February 25th on SimplyRed.com & Rhino
Following an illustrious career that spans three decades and 1000
weeks on the UK charts, Simply Red‟s classic LP „Stars‟ will be available
as a new Special Collector‟s Edition package, released on February
25th. Originally released in September 1991, the essential re-issue will be
available as a 3-disc (2 CD & 1 DVD) collector‟s set, to download and
as an i-Tunes bundle with exclusive content.

As well as the full, original album, it will feature a wealth of bonus
material, over 4 ½ hours in total, including 11 mixes by artists such as
Perfecto, Steve „Silk‟ Hurley and PM Dawn, bonus videos & a DVD of
1992‟s Montreux Jazz Festival concert.

Written by Mick Hucknall, „Stars‟ was co-produced by Mick with Stewart
Levine, whose credits include The Crusaders, Sly Stone, Jamie Cullum &
Lionel Ritchie, plus the hit LPs „A New Flame‟, „Life‟ & „Picture Book‟.

Featuring the singles „Something Got Me Started‟. „Thrill Me‟, „Stars‟,
„For Your Babies‟ & „Your Mirror‟, „Stars‟ is widely regarded as one of the
highlights of the band‟s impressive career, selling more than 4 million
copies in the UK and becoming the biggest seller in the UK for two
years running in 1991 & 1992.

The 137-date „Stars‟ world tour took the band around the globe for 2
years, which featured 21 sold-out arena shows in London.

Formed in 1985, Simply Red released their debut single
„Money‟s Too Tight (To Mention)‟ later that year. They went on to
release their first album „Picture Book‟ shortly after, which became a
major hit around the world, establishing Simply Red as a household
name and propelling vocalist Mick Hucknall to international fame.
Since then, Simply Red have released a further 10 studio LPs, selling 50
million records worldwide. In 2002, Mick Hucknall formed simplyred.com
with his management company, Silentway.

Simplyred.com have successfully released the past three Simply Red
albums, including 2003's 'Home' album which sold over 3 million copies
worldwide making it the biggest self -released record of all time. In
March 2007, the band released the critically acclaimed, Top 5 LP
„Stay‟, which was described by the Independent on Sunday as “Every
bit as good as 1992‟s multi-million-selling „Stars‟”.
