Mansun Attack Of The Grey Lantern-Six Surround Boxset bundle

THIS BUNDLE WILL BE SHIPPED TO ARRIVE IN THE WEEK OF THE 22-Mar-19 RELEASE DATE.

A bundle of the deluxe boxsets of Attack Of The Grey Lantern & Six by Mansun.

-----------------------------

A 21st Anniversary deluxe 4 disc edition of the groundbreaking debut album by Mansun (containing the ageless anthem Wide Open Space).
 
A brilliant hybrid of cinematic Art Rock invention and soaring melodies, Attack Of The Grey Lantern reached #1 in the UK charts on its 1997 release.
 
This 21st anniversary edition of Attack Of The Grey Lantern contains 3 CDs and a DVD-V (NTS-C Region 0) in a 72-page hardback book featuring the iconic 'roses' cover art. The audio has been remastered from the original master tapes by Jon Astley (Led Zeppelin, The Who). 
 
The first CD contains the original album, the second is packed with previously unreleased demos, rarities and outtakes from the Mansun archive, and the third features BBC Radio 1 session tracks from 1995 and 1996 that have not been available since they were on air. 
 
The DVD includes the album's first ever 5.1 surround sound mix (DTS 96/24 5.1 and Dolby Digital AC3 5.1) by long-time Mansun collaborator P-Dub, a hi-resolution stereo audio (24bit/48kHz Linear PCM) and 8 original promotional videos.
 
The book includes newly unearthed photos, extracts from Paul Draper's notebook documenting the early beginnings of AOTGL, previously unreleased original artwork, a foreword penned by Draper, in-depth sleeve notes by journalist Paul Stokes, and many unearthed treasures. 
 
----------------------
 
A deluxe 3cd/1dvd 21st Anniversary 'book set' edition of Mansun's audacious and infectious Six.
 
Tearing up the expectations set by their smash hit debut Attack Of The Grey Lantern, the experimental Six was instantly hailed as a leftfield cult classic. 
 
A unification of numerous ideas and inspirations - with elements of Pop, Electronica and Progressive Rock - the album included a Tchaikovsky sample interlaced with electronic drums and spooky synth lines, references to religious scepticism, Winnie the Pooh, Stanley Kubrick, Marxism, and spoken word from the legendary fourth Doctor Who, Tom Baker. 
 
Its varied approaches resulted in dynamic switches mid-track to seemingly new songs, making the album an extraordinary statement of individuality and ambition.
 
Includes the singles Legacy, Being A Girl, Negative and Six.
 
Remastered from the original master tapes by Jon Astley.
 
The first three discs feature the ralbum in full, a disc of demos, rarities & outtakes, and the b-side album The Dead Flowers Reject.
 
The DVD contains the album's first ever 5.1 surround sound mix (DTS 96/24 5.1 and Dolby Digital AC3 5.1) by long-time collaborator P-Dub, a hi-resolution stereo audio (24bit/48kHz Linear PCM) and the original promotional videos.
 
The 48-page hardback book features sleeve notes by journalist and long-time fan Paul Lester, and insights from Paul Draper including a foreword, an analysis of the cover art, track-by-track descriptions for both CDs 2 and 3 and an album overview of The Dead Flowers Reject (amongst plenty of newly unearthed treasures).
 
"A twisting maze of Prog, Glam and early '80s guitar pop. No-one has done northern angst on LSD quite like this.” - NME
