The Smashing Pumpkins Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness 180g Vinyl 4LP 

 

EMI's Extensive Smashing Pumpkins Reissue Campaign Continues with the Band's Fourth Album Remastered for the Very First Time

 

Remastered from the Original Analog Masters and Pressed Across 8 Sides for Optimum Sound Quality

 

Housed in a 12" x 12" Rigid Slipcase with 2 Books Containing Personal Notes, New Collage Artwork, Lyrics & More

 

Originally released in October of 1995, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart and went on to a nine time platinum certification by the RIAA. It yielded major hits like "Bullet With Butterfly Wings," the band's unlikely first Top 40 hit, the exquisite "1979" and the epic "Tonight, Tonight" as well as a thoroughly inspired series of videos.

 

Produced by Billy Corgan, Flood and Alan Moulder, the album would also earn a Grammy Award (1996 Best Hard Rock Performance for "Bullet With Butterfly Wings") as well as seven nominations. Beyond the more obvious hits, though, Mellon Collie is a song cycle of unusual depth and considerable range. It is a collection of stunningly beautiful moments when everything is lined up, a moment in time that's still here to be treasured.

 

EMI is doing just that by reissuing the album here across 4 x 180g LPs, remastered from the original analog masters for optimum sound quality for the first time and housed in a 12" x 12" rigid slipcase with 2 books containing personal notes, new collage artwork, lyrics and more. This reissue project was personally overseen by founding member Billy Corgan.

 

"What strikes me now about Mellon Collie is that we were coming off of making Siamese Dream with Butch Vig which was a very idealized statement," Corgan tells writer David Wild in the liner notes. "Siamese Dream was very successful and very much at the forefront of how records are made now with a strong perfectionist streak. Yet coming off of that success, we went completely in the opposite direction working with Flood and Alan Moulder.

 

We headed into a much darker, funkier and more visceral terrain. Revisiting Mellon Collie for this edition, that's what struck me, that we made this kind of dramatic 'about face"'at a time when most people would have made an even more expensive idealized statement.
