This box is the definite overview of Georgie Fame's Columbia recordings, gathering all 46 tracks from Fame's four albums for the UK Columbia recordings, with no less than sixty bonus tracks from non lp singles, non lp EP tracks, album outtakes, BBC sessions, a 1963 demo session and stray live recordings.
