On December 11 1990, Madonna’s The Royal Box, a box-set which included The Immaculate Collection CD or cassette, VHS video, postcards and a folded poster of Madonna performing Vogue at the MTV Video Music Awards, was released.
Box sets seem to be a thing of the past. Do you think Madonna will ever release another box set as great or greater than The Royal Box?
Do you wish Madonna had released more box sets when they were actually popular and sold well?
On June 15 1991, Madonna’s Holiday was re-released in the UK to promote both The Immaculate Collection and the limited edition EP, The Holiday Collection.
This was the third release for Holiday in the UK:
- January 1984 (reached #6)
- August 1985 (reached #2, while #1 was Madonna’s own Into The Groove)
- June 15 1991 (reached #5)
If Madonna were to release another greatest hits album and decided to re-release a classic hit, which song would you choose?
On June 8 1991, Madonna’s Holiday debuted at #12 in the UK. It was the third time that Holiday was released in the UK, this time to promote The Holiday Collection.
The first time the song was released in the UK it peaked at 6. The second time it was released it peaked at number 2, only to be kept away from number 1 by her own Into the Groove. The 1991 released peaked at number 5 during the week of June 15.
