Primal Scream Honour Screamadelica's 20th Anniversary with Massive Box Set
Published Nov 23, 2010Next year, Primal Scream's Screamadelica will turn 20. To celebrate the occasion, the veteran Scottish rockers will be reissuing the album, along with a slew of bonus materials and non-musical extras.
In the UK, the expanded reissue of the album is due out March 7, which is more than six months ahead of the record's actual 20th anniversary (September 23). The new version will contain four CDs, a double LP, a DVD and much more.
The first CD has the original album, which was remastered by the band along with My Bloody Valentine's Kevin Shields (a frequent Primal Scream collaborator). Disc two will contain the previously unreleased Live in L.A. 1991. Disc three is made up of remixes from Andrew Weatherall, the Orb and more. And the final disc is a remastered version of the Dixie-Narco EP.
The remastered album will also be included on the double LP version. The DVD will contain a 30-minute documentary called The Making of Screamadelica, plus footage from the original Screamadelica VHS tape.
The deluxe set also contains a 50-page book, slip mat, art cards and a replica tour T-shirt. As if that's not enough, the band will also release a limited "white version"; these will be numbered an limited to 500 copies, with 100 copies signed by the band.
The set is listed on Amazon with the price of £105.99 ($173.01). The "white version" will be available from Primal Scream's website for £100 ($163.23).
If that's a little out of your price range, there will also be a basic two-CD version.
