Published Sep 21, 2012The late Amy Winehouse will be treated to another posthumous release this year courtesy of an upcoming box set. While neither a name nor a tracklist has been offered up just yet, the BBC reports that it will deliver the four-disc package this November.
The collection is said to feature 10 live tracks recorded during various BBC sessions, as selected by Jools Holland. Also included will be three DVDs gathering live footage and candid interviews with Winehouse. A 2007 concert from London's Porchester Hall will be preserved in the box, as will the recent Amy Winehouse: The Day She Came to Dingle documentary. All proceeds from the set will go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation.
"Britain has produced a lot of brilliant female singer-songwriters and vocalists in the last decade or so, many from Beth Gibbons to Adele, rooted in older black American forms, soul and jazz and blues," BBC producer Mark Cooper said in a statement. "But there was only ever one Amy Winehouse. She was frank and fresh and haunted. And we miss her."
This will be the second posthumous offering from the late R&B star, who died from alcohol poisoning in the summer of 2011. Her previous rarities set Lioness: Hidden Treasures arrived late last year.
