We would like to wish No Doubt’s releases The Singles (1992-2003), Everything In Time (B-Sides, Rarities, Remixes), Boom Box and the live DVD Rock Steady Live a happy 11th anniversary which were all released on this day back in 2003.
The Singles (plus the limited edition Boom Box which included The Singles, Everything In Time, Live in the Tragic Kingdom DVD and The Videos (1992-2003) DVD) were all released back on November 25, 2003. The Singles included a new cover from the band, “It’s My Life”, that reached #10 on the Billboard charts. The song was nominated for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal at the 47th Grammy Awards. Jacques Lu Cont, the song’s programmer, created the Thin White Duke mix of “It’s My Life”, which won the award for Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical. Gwen has also mentioned that it’s one of the most difficult songs to perform live, but fun.
Everything In Time contains B-sides from the Return of Saturn era and a couple leftovers from the Rock Steady recording sessions. The Rock Steady remixes were also intended to be intermissions on Rock Steady but were taken out cause the album didn’t flow properly. A lot of fans consider Everything In Time one of their favorite albums cause some of the b-sides are considered classic. Most of them were already found on Return of Saturn singles and were also circulated online in the early 2000s, still it was very cool to finally have them all in one place. The booklet also included some never before seen outtakes from popular photo shoots. Everything In Time was eventually released on it’s own in 2004.
Boom Box also included a DVD version of the band’s incredible Live in the Tragic Kingdom live release that included many never before seen home footage and photo gallery.
Also included was a DVD version of No Doubt’s video catalog on The Videos 1992-2003, that included all of band’s music videos up until that point as well as more home footage. An essential for every No Doubt fan!
No Doubt also released a live DVD from the Rock Steady tour, Rock Steady Live, on this day as well in 2003. The DVD included a full show live from Long Beach, California, as well as interviews with the band, backstage footage and more.
