Amy Winehouse At The BBC”, a four-disc collection chronicling the many remarkable performances by arguably the greatest and most genuine talent to emerge in British music in decades, will be released on November 12th. Spread across three dvds, and one CD, this comprehensive collection captures the strong and enduring relationship that Amy enjoyed with the BBC and is further proof of quite what an extraordinarily talented, completely original, and truly engaging performer Amy was.
Amy Winehouse didn't leave much behind in the vaults, and with her studio recordings already collected on 2011's Lioness: Hidden Treasures, the only thing left was Amy Winehouse at the BBC, a deluxe set rounding up everything the singer cut for any of the BBC's programs.
