Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness reissue information and artwork
Taken from www.antiquiet.com
According to an Amazon listing, the double record will come in similar fashion to the Gish / Siamese Dream and Pisces Iscariot deluxe reissues before it. The page states the following: “Mellon Collie & The Infinite Sadness is being released in multiple physical and digital configurations, including an expanded 5CD+DVD Deluxe Box Set (also available digitally) and the remastered original album in 4LP Vinyl, 2CD, and digital formats. The Deluxe Box Set’s 5 CDs include 64 bonus tracks of previously unreleased material or alternate versions of Mellon Collie era songs, and its DVD features a live show filmed at the Brixton Academy, London (1996) and bonus performances from the German music television show Rockpalast (1996). It all comes housed in a 12 x 12 lift-top box with magnetic closure, reimagined cover art and velvet-lined disc holder. The package includes 2 books containing personal notes, lyrics, new collage artwork, plus a Decoupage kit for creating your own scenes from the Mellon Collie universe. The bonus content and special features were curated from the band’s archives by Corgan, and have been painstakingly remastered for the first time from the original master tapes by Bob Ludwig.”
As Mellon Collie registered what was arguably the Pumpkins’ best creative period (even according to Corgan), the slew of extra content is perfectly understandable. While a full tracklisting has yet to be announced, the DVD mentioned in the description may already be within reach.
