Home Discography Compilations From Croydon to Cuba – An Anthology. From Croydon to Cuba – An Anthology. From Croydon to Cuba – An Anthology (2005 CD Box Set) front cover. From Croydon to Cuba – An Anthology (2005 CD Box Set) back cover. I would like to pose a question if an answer is possible. Does From Croydon to Cuba – An Anthology offer a remastered version of her earlier stuff? In other words, as an owner of her complete catalogue, would it be to my advantage to purchase this box set? Thank you for keeping Kirsty’s flame lit! Jim Considine/Baltimore, MD. Reply. A Concert for Kirsty MacColl (CD).

Kirsty Anna MacColl (10 October 1959 – 18 December 2000) was an English singer and songwriter. She recorded several pop hits between the early 1980s and the 1990s, including "There's a Guy Works Down the Chip Shop Swears He's Elvis" and cover versions of Billy Bragg's "A New England" and The Kinks' "Days". She and her brother, Hamish MacColl, grew up with their mother in Croydon, where Kirsty attended Park Hill Primary School, Monks Hill High School and John Newnham High School, making appearances in school plays. An Anthology may refer to

From Croydon To Cuba is a three CD anthology which covers all aspects of Kirsty’s career, from the early recordings on the seminal punk label Stiff, through to the wonderfully crafted songs from the Kite, Electric Landlady and Titanic Days albums, right up to her last, and best, collection, the fully fledged Cuban rhythms of Tropical Brainstorm. It’s towards the end of the first disc that MacColl’s talent starts to shine through. Kite was actually her second album, which she recorded after a long sabbatical due to motherhood. Even today, 15 years after it was first released, it still sounds as fresh as it did back then. Don’t Come The Cowboy With Me Sonny Jim (she knew the secret to an eye catching title!) was a beautiful country ballad railing against the coldness of men who use women for sex ( they’ll never remember and they’ll never mind if you’re counting the cracks in the wall ).
