1977 DELUXE EDITION: WHAT'S THE STORY / TRACK LISTING?

Pre-Order Now

Part of the reason why we announced the two 1977  shows in London is because Rhino records are releasing a deluxe edition of our No. 1 debut album. Rhino are known for repackaging classic albums and we think it's pretty cool they're going to be giving 1977  that recognition.

Tim is remastering the whole collection and Mark is overseeing the artwork. Also we've mixed the Reading '96 show fresh from multi-track and will be bringing The Scream out of the vault to mix later this week. We'd like to stress that this is not just some record company, "lets milk the back catalogue" project. We want this to be a great package and overview of our early years as a 3-piece, rammed with value added content.

We don't have an exact release date yet but it will probably be late September / early October. There will be three CDs in the set and the track listing is planned to be as follows:
