Smashing Pumpkins' landmark 1991 album Gish – one of the most classic & infuential albums of the 90s – has been remastered and reissued for the first time – and CraveOnline's hooking you up with a kickass Deluxe Edition box set!
On November 29 in North America and December 5 internationally, EMI Music will launch an extensive campaign honoring the legacy of the Smashing Pumpkins by reissuing the iconic alternative band’s first two albums – Gish and Siamese Dream – in CD, deluxe 2CD/DVD, vinyl LP and digital configurations.
Both albums, each with bonus content and special features that were curated from the band’s archives by frontman and founding member Billy Corgan, have been painstakingly remastered for the first time from the original master tapes by Bob Ludwig.
Gish highlights include “I Am One,” “Siva” and “Rhinoceros,” while Siamese Dream features “Cherub Rock,” “Today” and “Disarm.” Both groundbreaking albums were produced by Butch Vig and Billy Corgan.
For the Gish and Siamese Dream liner notes, Billy Corgan was interviewed by journalist/author David Wild. Corgan reflects on why these albums were hard-won triumphs for the band and discusses the origins of the songs.
Winner's Deluxe Gish Box Set includes:
- Original Album Remastered With Reimagined Cover Art
- 15 Previously Unreleased or Alternative Versions of Gish Era Songs
- Previously Unreleased, Full Length DVD From The Metro 1990
