Basia Xmas/Basia Best
(Promotional issue only.  A stunning 2-disc set, pairing a special pressing of "Angels Blush/ Waters of March" single with what is essentially a legimate, but unauthorized Japanese greatest hits compilation.  While such promotional "hits" collections are not unusual in Japan, until the discovery of this set in late 1998, there was no indication that such a project had ever been created for Basia.
The two discs are housed in a red, cloth-covered tri-fold binder, which features printing in metallic gold ink.  CD labels are also printed with metallic gold ink.  Owing to the inordinate rarity of this set (Japanese promotional press runs generally only number a few hundred, per title), this may be the rarest legimate Basia CD.)
