Released in 1991, the Pumpkins’ debut album, ‘Gish,’ is a sprawling platter of psychedelic-tinged indie rock that introduced the band’s unique vision with classics such as ‘I Am One,’ ‘Siva’ and ‘Rhinoceros.’ The forthcoming Deluxe Edition of ‘Gish’ will include the remastered CD, a second CD of ‘Gish’-era of demos and other rarities, plus a 10-track concert DVD recorded on Aug. 25, 1990, at the Metro in the band’s hometown of Chicago.
The Pumpkins’ breakthrough 1993 album ‘Siamese Dream’ was a watershed moment for the alternative nation and spawned massive hits ‘Cherub Rock,’ ‘Today’ and ‘Disarm.’ The two-CD/DVD ‘Siamese Dream’ Deluxe collection features the remastered album, a second CD of ‘Dream’ outtakes and other rarities, and 17-song live concert DVD also recorded at the Metro, this time on Aug. 14, 1993.
Both Deluxe Edition sets will be packaged in a special lift-top box, with liner notes, track-by-track commentary from Billy Corgan, previously unseen collages and photos, postcards and other goodies. For full track listings of both albums, click here.
The albums are both available on iTunes.
