Amy Winehouse box set to be released

2012-09-21 21:02
Los Angeles - A new Amy Winehouse at the BBC box set is to be released in November.

The collection brings together 14 of the singer's live tracks picked by pianist and TV presenter Jools Holland from various sessions she performed for the BBC.

The set also includes a DVD of her performance at Porchester Hall, London, recorded in 2007 as well as footage from Amy's first ever TV performances, interviews, and musical rarities including covers and alternate versions of her most famous tracks.

The package also contains a documentary, Amy Winehouse: The Day She Came To Dingle, which recently aired on BBC Four.

Final goodbyes

Proceeds from the box set will go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, set up by the late singer's family in the wake of her death, from accidental alcohol poisoning in July 2011, aged 27.

Earlier this month, Amy's family buried her ashes and said their final goodbyes as they laid her to rest in a Jewish ceremony in Edgware, North London.

Her ashes were committed to the ground underneath a black and pink headstone in a memorial attended by around 70 mourners last Sunday.
