Smashing Pumpkins Plan Massive ‘Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness’ Reissue

smashing pumpkins mellon collie and the infinite sadness deluxe reissue

The Smashing Pumpkins Diamond-certified landmark album Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness will see its first deluxe edition reissue this December in “painstakingly” remastered glory by Bob Ludwig. In 1995, Ann Powers, for SPIN, ruled the double-disc opus “a garden that’s very lush” — and 17 years later, what fruits that garden has grown! The Mellon Collie re-release will come in various permutations, but the prize here is the 5CD/DVD deluxe box set, which holds 64 bonus tracks (106 physical, 92 digital); a DVD of the Pumpkins’ 1996 Brixton Academy performance in London with bonus footage from German TV show Rockpalast; a 12×12 lift-top box with velvet-lined disc-holder; two books of notes, lyrics, and artwork; and … a Decoupage kit? What? Did all those Pumpkin heads grow up to be crafters? Anyway, the remaster also comes in 4xLP vinyl, 2xCD, and it being 2012 and all, digital format. Track list follows.
