Notes

The release of this box marks the 25th anniversary of the Art Bears

A 6 CD box containing:

1. The three original releases, all in a Digipak, properly re-mastered, - when we did them before, the technology was much poorer. Stunningly re-mastered by Bob Drake from 24 bit transcriptions of the original tapes and in newly designed Digipacks, same cover art, of course.

2. Art Bears Revisited - A double Digipak containing a double CD of re-mixes, re-workings and (mostly) new pieces made from Art Bears multi-track masters by JOHN OSWALD, THE RESIDENTS, CHRISTIAN MARCLAY, FRED FRITH, CHRIS CUTLER, BIOTA, OTOMO YOSHIHIDE/GROUND ZERO, BOB DRAKE JON ROSE, OSSATURA, WARRIC SWINNEY/KALAHARI SURFERS, WHEN, THOMAS DIMUZIO, ANNIE GOSFIELD ROGER KLEIR,ANDREA ROCCA, VITOR RUA, JOCELYN ROBERT,MUSCI/ VENOSTA/ MARIANI, MASSIMO SIMONINI, HERB HEINZ. MARTIN ARCHER, YASUSHI UTSUNOMIYA, JON LEIDECKER/WOBBLY, STEVAN KOVACS TICKMAYER and BRIAN WOODBURY.
6 years in the making, this is an amazing catalogue of imagination and great music.
Digi-packed with a cover art by EM Thomas, who did all three original art bears covers and containing Art re-mixes in the booklet as well as comprehensive information. This double also contains Collapse from the Ralph Records single, All Hail from the Recommended Sampler and one previously unreleased and unfinished track completed by Fred Frith and Chris Cutler for this release.

3. A free extra CD in a card sleeve only available with the box (there are reasons) containing further re-workings by John Oswald, Bob Drake, Fred Frith, Biota, Yasushi Utsunomiya, as well as live Art Bears tracks and a Duck and Cover cover.
Tracks 6-4 to 6.-7 from an unidentified live concert, probably Charleville, 16-Apr-1979.

4. A thick book (28 pages) of artwork, articles, notes, interviews and commentary on the material, the work process, the tour and the band in general, with photographs, documents and artwork.

5. An insert called ’addenda & errata’
