Smashing Pumpkins Announce "Gish" + "Siamese Dream" Reissues [News]

October 25, 2011
On November 29th, Chicago’s seminal alternative rockers Smashing Pumpkins will bring the deluxe treatment to their first two LPs, 1991′s Gish and 1993′s Siamese Dream. True to the fans, both releases have been remastered for the first time, courtesy of Bob Ludwig, and sport extra discs, chock full of exclusives; from rarities and demos to unreleased tracks and video performances.

As a press release indicates, the deluxe editions each include a unique DVD, both featuring taped performances at Chicago’s Metro, respective to each album. For Gish, fans will be able to check out a 10-song show that dates all the way back to August 25th, 1990, while those who grab Siamese Dream can check out the 17-song set captured on August 14th, 1993. To make it extra special, Joe Shanahan, owner of the Metro, recorded introductions for both DVDs.

Much like the recent Teargarden packaging, the two deluxe sets will be housed in a special lift-top box, which will also include liner notes, track-by-track commentary by Billy Corgan, never-before-seen collages and photos, postcards, and more. Each set is priced at $30. Outside of the deluxe treatment, however, both remastered albums will also be available as a standard release on CD, vinyl, and digital configurations.
