“Originally released in 1982, ‘New Gold Dream (81-82-83-84)’ was Simple Minds’ fifth studio album and their crossover — the one that took them from revered cult status to a chart band with hit singles. Featuring the singles ‘Promised You A Miracle’, ‘Glittering Prize’ and ‘Someone, Somewhere (In Summertime)’, it turned the band into a major force in pop music, spending a full year on the UK album chart.
This stunning new deluxe box set consists of six discs including an Abbey Road remaster of the original album and a swathe of remixes, 12″ versions, radio edits and an entire disc of previously unreleased John Peel and Kid Jensen radio sessions, recorded in 1982. The set is completed by a DVD, featuring the 2005 5:1 Mix of the album by Charlie Burchill and Ronald Prent as well as promo videos and, being made available commercially for the first time, Top Of The Pops performances of ‘Promised You A Miracle’ and ‘Glittering Prize.’ It also includes a 36-page booklet with extensive sleeve notes by journalist and broadcaster, Billy Sloan including new interviews with Jim Kerr and Charlie Burchill, as well as photos of the band during the period. “

Description:

Digitally remastered and expanded super deluxe four CD edition of Public Image Limited’s seminal second album, originally released in 1979. With all lyrics written by John Lydon Metal Box was recorded with original PiL members Keith Levene and Jah Wobble. Original drummer Jim Walker had left, to be replaced by a succession of drummers. Metal Box came out less than a year after PiL’s debut Public Image: First Issue yet it was nothing like it’s predecessor. Things had changed, and so had PiL. While outside pressures mounted PiL channeled their energies (negative and positive) into a record that would set them apart back in 1979, and indeed today in 2016. Whether it be John’s powerful and passionate vocals; Keith’s wailing guitar and melodic synths; Wobble’s sub-disco reggae basslines; or the crashing rhythm that holds it all together, Metal Box has many strengths. The album was originally released as three 45rpm 12″ singles housed in a metal film canister as made by The Metal Box Company in London’s East End; hence the name. The super deluxe edition, also housed in an embossed metal box, includes rare and unreleased mixes from the recording sessions, along with B-sides and BBC sessions, a live recording from a now legendary unplanned show at Factory Records Russell Club in Manchester arranged on the day of a Granada TV appearance and exclusive posters and postcards.

Digitally remastered and expanded super deluxe four CD edition of Public Image Limited’s 1986 release issued in a square card box with de-bossed artwork including a 72 page booklet together with an exclusive poster postcards. With it’s striking minimalist generic style artwork, Album arrived in February 1986. Written by John Lydon and produced with Bill Laswell (with music for some tracks co-written with Jebin Bruni and Mark Schulz from the 1984-85 PiL live band) the album was recorded in Autumn 1985 in New York with prolific session players such as Steve Vai, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Tony Williams and the legendary Cream drummer Ginger Baker. The album only took three weeks to record, followed by a week of mixing. John Lydon later remarked that Album was, “almost like a solo album” as he was working on his own with several hired musicians. Jazz saxophonist Ornette Coleman came into the studio while the album was being recorded and commented that Lydon sang like he played the saxophone. Lydon said it was, “still the best thing anyone’s ever said to me.” Album peaked at #14 in the UK charts and features perhaps the most famous PiL track ‘Rise’, which peaked at #11. As well as rare and unreleased mixes from the album and single’s the deluxe edition includes the original demos recorded pre-Laswell with the 1984-85 PiL live band all of which are previously unheard. Two 12″ mixes of John Lydon’s groundbreaking collaboration with hip hop pioneer Afrika Bambaataa are also included as bonus tracks.

Description:

2016 ten CD set. Trials Of Eyeliner is the definitive overview of Marc Almond’s career, and the fact that Almond himself has personally curated the collection, allied to the 189-strong track listing, suggests that this is no exaggeration. Neal X, Almond’s longstanding writing partner/musical director (and former Sigue Sigue Sputnik guitarist), supervised mastering of the tracks recorded over five decades between 1979 and 2016. This anthology is divided into three themed sections. History fills the first four discs with 72 of Almond’s favorite album tracks and B-sides, from Soft Cell’s “Youth” to the song that gave this super deluxe set it’s name: “Trials of Eyeliner”. Singles gathers together all of Marc’s official Soft Cell, Mambas and solo singles in (mainly) chronological order for the first time. The last three CDs consists of Gems – fan-only releases, one-off collaborations, soundtrack contributions etc. – and includes 18 tracks previously unreleased from Marc’s own collection plus many more hard-to-find rarities and songs making their debut in the CD/digital format. The ten CDs are housed in two six-page gatefold disc holders within a 240mm-square slipcase, and the music is complemented by a 64-page hardcover book featuring loads of photos and imagery from Almond’s own archive and an interview/essay by Alexis Petridis. Artwork for the cover and elsewhere within the package is by renowned graphic artist Stefan Fhler.
