The Official Fuzzy Warbles Collector's Album is a CD box set of rarities from XTC guitarist and frontman Andy Partridge. The box set brings together the eight previously released Fuzzy Warbles volumes, originally issued between 2002 and 2006, and includes an exclusive ninth disc entitled Hinges;[2] the large volume of material dates back to 1979.[3]

Tracks include mastered versions of long-circulated bootlegs and many demos of previously unreleased songs. Many of the demos are from the 1980s as well as the period in the 1990s when XTC was under obligation to Virgin Records, but not releasing albums. One highlight is a series of songs penned for Disney's James and the Giant Peach though not used for the film.[1]
