LOOK: The Smashing Pumpkins Reissue Gish and Siamese Dream And Everything Else
By Staff on October 18, 2011
While The Smashing Pumpkins are working on a new album, Oceania, they are also busy reissuing their entire catalog from the 90's. On November 29th, you can expect to see the deluxe versions of their 1991 debut album, Gish, and Siamese Dream ('93)--released via EMI.
There will be three versions of each album--a single disc format, the remastered vinyl edition, and the deluxe version which contains two CDs and a DVD. The extra discs of the deluxe versions contain rare and previously unreleased tracks, and the DVD is made up of previously unreleased video footage of shows performed from 1990-1993 at the Metro in Chicago. Billy Corgan has also included written commentary for each track on each record.
You can find the tracklists and complete details of the reissues here.
The massive reissue feat the Pumpkins have taken on doesn't stop with Gish or Siamese Dream, but continues with next year's rerelease of Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness ('96), The Aeroplane Flies High ('96), and Adore ('98). And in two years, the albums from 2000 will be reissued as well.
The icing on the cake is that the Pumpkins are working on Oceania, as it will be part of their free 44-track mega-release Teargarden by Kaleidyscope.
