Product Description

Excellent three CD set from the European Dance/Disco outfit. Boney M were put together by songwriter, producer and svengali Frank Farian as a 'front' for his own musical output. Although the three female members of Boney M appeared on the band's recordings, Farian supplied the male voice while DJ and dancer Bobby Farrell provided the face. Disc One features their 70's hits including 'Ma Baker', 'Rivers Of Babylon' and more. Disc Two contains their hits from the '80s including 'Boonoonoonoos', 'We Kill The World' and others. Disc Three features a handful of great twelve inch remixes. 36 tracks in all. Sony/BMG. 2008.

Value for money! March 16 2008
By J. A. H. Janssen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The tracklisting is a true addition to the Boney M. catalogue. 17 songs haven't been released on CD before in the versions as they appear here, including several 12" versions and 7" versions. The artwork says that "Children Of Paradise" in it's 5.19 maxi version is released here on CD for the first time; this isn't exactly true, since it has been previously released on several compilations before, like on the "Ma Baker" compilation (295660 Ariola Express, 1989) and exclusive club CD "Boney M. - Golden Stars" (360537 SR International, 1996).

A pity is the fact that "Ribbons Of Blue" is presented here in the 1993 "More Gold" version instead of the original 1979 version, which still hasn't been released on CD from it's original master. But that is probably the only critisism you can say about this boxset, and our compliments go to Frank Eberlein, who selected the songs for this compilation with much care. The artwork is very "Boney M.-ish" and properly done, allthough not too spectacular. Regarding the fact that this boxset is budget priced, this is absolutely value for money (10 euros more or less).

A Must For All Boney M Fan Aug. 25 2008
By Robert Munzer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Finally a box set that truly complements most existing Boney M CDs. The 3rd CD alone with it's 12" versions is worth the price, especially Felicidad's 11:46 version! All cuts beautifully remastered. Could have lived without Daddy Cool's '86 version and taken the full 8:54 12" version of Gadda-Da-Vida instead. But hey, one can't have everything;-)

Nice compilation but missing quite a few hits Sept. 21 2013
By Hansın - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The trio of the "Collection" CD's attempt to cover pretty much the entire career of the European disco/pop band Boney M while leaving out some of their most remembered singles like "Belfast", "Hooray! Hooray! It's a Holi-Holiday", "Mary's Boy Child/Oh My Lord" and, last but not the least, their most popular dancing hit "One Way Ticket" which cannot be found on any Boney M compilation CD printed so far either. It's a shame..
A great Boney M. compilation Nov. 10 2013
By Danni Lange - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
As a budget release this compilation is truly amazing.

Usually the Boney M. compilations released by Sony Music contain edits (shortened versions), but that’s not the case here.

Here’s a compilation including 3 CD’s and not one edit at all! Only original single-, LP- and maxi-versions.

Out of the 36 tracks on the compilation, 17 tracks are previously unreleased CD.

“The Collection” is including material from the original Boney M. period 1976 – 1986.

CD 1 (The seventies) contains 2 previously unreleased versions: the single-versions of “Rasputin” and “Bahama Mama”.

CD 2 (The eighties) contains 7 previously unreleased versions: “Daddy Cool (Anniversary Recording ’86)”, “Malaika”, “Boonoonoonoos”, “Going Back West”, “Consuela Biaz”, “Bang Bang Lulu” and “Somewhere In The World”.

CD 3 (The best 12” versions) with the maxi-versions contains 8 previously unreleased versions out of 8 tracks on the CD.

At the time of this release the original master for “Ribbons Of Blue” was not found. Therefore it has been included as the 1993-version (also known as “More Gold” version). It’s still the full length version, but with some extra hi-hats/drum-beats.

Personally I would have preferred “Dreadlock Holiday” included as the original album version with Reggie Tsiboe on lead and not the so called Top-Deck version with Frank Farian on lead. But that’s also the only thing I would have liked to see different on this compilation.

But when thinking of that it’s a budget release I can’t put a finger on the compilation at all.

This is how I like to see a Boney M. compilation compiled.

Thanks to the compiler of this Boney M. compilation: Frank Eberlein. There’s no doubt about he has put a lot of hard work into this compilation. The Boney M. catalogue is a very complex one and Frank has shown he knows how to deal with it.
