I feel like some of those are hold back due to overshipping physical copies and them wanting to sell them out. Then they probably sort of forgot to chuck it up there.


The GH and Emma's free me are more likely due to 19 management not bothering with music anymore and it was sold off as well.

Victoria's is the label went bust and nobody has probably brought the rights to her single so no has the power to add it.

So couldn't she add it?

Or is it one of those things where the rights go up for auction as no one owns them?

Monday 26th January 2004 - Emma Bunton - 'I'll Be There'



It's been 14 years since the release of Emma's 7th single - I'll Be There! Emma & 19/Univeral approached the release of her second album (Free Me) with caution, preceding its release with three singles. I'll Be There served to launch the album, which followed two weeks later. Both single & album peaked at #7 in the UK charts! I'll Be There managed an overall total of around 40,000 copies (an indication of how horrible sales levels were that year - it was the 153rd best seller of the year!). The music video was given a black and white treatment, and was shot in Paris.

ONE OF HER BEST cheer.gif

Also, it produced one of best songs of her career, the underrated b-side So Long

Monday 9th February 2004 - Emma Bunton - 'Free Me'



Emma's second solo album, 'Free Me', was released 14 years ago this week! It includes the singles 'Free Me', 'Maybe', 'I'll Be There' and 'Crickets Sing for Anamaria'. The album is heavily influenced by music of the 1960s, with a mixture of pop, motown and bossa nova sounds running throughout its 12 tracks. It seemed Emma had really found her niche, because the album & its singles were like nothing else in the charts at that time.

'Free Me' entered the UK albums chart at #7, with first week sales exceeding 33,000 copies. This made it the second fastest selling solo Spice album, behind 'Scream If You Wanna Go Faster' (which shifted 35,000 in its opening week). As of 2009, 'Free Me' had sold 142,000 copies in total, making it Emma's best selling album in the UK. 'Free Me' received critical acclaim, which wasn't a usual outcome for a solo Spice record!

Such a shame it didn't manage to go top 5 being the second fastest selling album! Our girls have really been unfortunately with charting positions for their albums at times. Then downloads have also worked against them chart position wise.

Free Me is the best Spice-related album and it really was the album that restored my interest in Emma and the group too!

Shame she stopped promoting it and went on another massive iatus before Life in Mono (which is the second-best Spice related album!).

I am so grateful this album is my life 🙏🏼
