GARY NUMAN - 80/81 BOX SET
This 5 disc boxed set completes the "Machine Series" started in 1978 and includes Telekon spread over 2 180g vinyl discs and the Living Ornaments ‘81 live album as a 3 LP set. The five discs are packed in individual heavyweight sleeves with inner bags all housed in a matt black box with the iconic red parallel belts printed in a gloss red.
Telekon, remastered from the original analogue tapes, is released for the first time as a double album and includes two tracks, We Are Glass and I Die: You Die, released as singles but omitted from the original album as a cost cutting measure. The discs are packaged in two individual album sleeves with inner bags featuring lyrics and sleeve notes just for this boxed edition.
Living Ornaments ‘81, remastered and spread across three 180g vinyl discs, was recorded on the last night at Wembley Arena on April 28th 1981 and at the time was intended to be Numan’s farewell to live performance. The songs from the show cover a whole period from Tubeway Army through Replicas and The Pleasure Principle to Telekon and the future single She’s Got Claws from his next album Dance. This concert is considered to be, by many fans and critics alike, one of Numan’s most charismatic live performances. Again these discs are packaged in individual album sleeves with inner bags and are only available in this boxed edition.
