 Smashing Pumpkins reissue Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness

EMI marches on with its extensive reissue campaign of The Smashing Pumpkins’ pre-Oceania discography. Last year, Gish and Siamese Dream were re-released in deluxe packages, Pisces Iscariot surfaced this summer, and now the group’s magnum opus, 1995′s Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, will join the parade on December 3rd.

The deluxe physical package of Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness will include the original album remastered by Bob Ludwig, 64 previously unreleased or alternate versions of Mellon Collie-era songs, a DVD featuring performances at London’s Brixton Academy (1996) and on the TV show Rockpalast (1996), and two books that contain personal notes, lyrics, new collage artwork, plus a Decoupage kit for creating your own scenes from the Mellon Collie universe.

The set will also be available in both standard and deluxe digital editions, a standard physical edition, and on 180 gram vinyl. Food for thought: Mellon Collie has never been released on vinyl stateside. Check out the respective tracklists below.

The Smashing Pumpkins’ reissue campaign will last through 2013, encompassing all of the band’s albums and B-sides from 1991-2000. Additional releases will be announced shortly.
