Kim Wilde is the eponymous debut studio album by British singer Kim Wilde, released on June 29, 1981 via the RAK label. The songs on the album were all written by Kim's father, the successful 1950s rock and roll singer Marty Wilde, and her younger brother Ricky Wilde and most of the music was played by the then current line-up of the symphonic rock band The Enid. Production duties were fulfilled by Ricky Wilde. The cover portraits were taken by renowned British photographer Gered Mankowitz.
The Hits Collection (Kim Wilde album). The Hits Collection is a compilation album by Kim Wilde. The album was released on March 6, 2006. Originally the album was intended to be a repackaged version of the 1996 compilation Best of Kim Wilde. When the album was announced, the webmaster of Wilde's fansite contacted EMI and asked if it would be a better idea to release a new compilation of Wilde's EMI "first" years 1981-1983 instead.

Wilde Life: the official Kim Wilde fansite. This compilation was accompanied by a video EP release, which featured promo films for six of her eight singles for RAK. It was Dave Edmunds' remixing of 'Rage To Love', issued in April 1985, which provided Kim with her best chart position since spring 1982. As a further indication that she is back on top, a video EP has recently been reissued.

Kim Wilde, USA pressing, 1989. Even the biggest Kim Wilde fan could be fooled by this CD, if he or she didn’t know the tracklisting of every album by heart. If you’d compare the content of this American pressing of Kim Wilde’s debut album with a European release, you’d see that ‘Kids In America’ has been moved from track 5 to track 1, causing the other four tracks to move down one position. It’s not a very big difference, but interesting for collectors nonetheless. If you simply want to own all of Kim’s songs there’s a different strategy to follow - but that story is for another da. clap.
