This edition contains not only the original album, but a new 5.1 mix by Steven Wilson which was done in conjunction with Roland Orzabal, as well as all the relevant B-Sides, alternate mixes and around 60 minutes of previously unheard demos and live rehearsals. The set is housed in a shoe box style box (similar to the other 2 releases) with an extensive booklet, with new interviews by Super Deluxe editor Paul Sinclair with the band and other players on the album. Also contains the tour program.
The blu-ray features a Steven Wilson lossless 5.1 surround sound mix along with stereo versions of the original Bob Ludwig 1989 mastering and the new remaster.
As most of you will be aware by now, I was deeply involved in this project; I co-compiled the track listing, wrote sleeve notes and interviewed band members, producers and collaborators for an extensive ‘in their own words’ history of The Seeds of Love which features in the 36-page booklet which comes with the box set.
