MELLON COLLIE AND THE INFINITE SADNESS receives the fully remastered treatment for the first time.

The original double album debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart, received 7 Grammy Award nominations and featured 5 hit singles ‘Bullet With Butterfly Wings’, ‘1979’, ‘Zero , ‘Tonight, Tonight’, ‘Muzzle’ and ‘Thirty-Three’, The reissue project was remastered from the original analog masters and personally overseen by founding member Billy Corgan with extensive bonus material from the Pumpkins’ archives.

Originally released October 24, 1995, MELLON COLLIE AND THE INFINITE SADNESS would debut at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart and was certified 9x platinum by the RIAA. It yielded major hits like “Bullet With Butterfly Wings”–the band’s unlikely first Top 40 hit–the exquisite “1979” and epic “Tonight, Tonight” as well as a thoroughly inspired series of videos. Produced by BILLY CORGAN, Flood and Alan Moulder, the album would also earn a Grammy Award (1996 Best Hard Rock Performance for “Bullet With Butterfly Wings“) as well as seven nominations.  Beyond the more obvious hits, though, MELLON COLLIE is a song cycle of unusual depth and considerable range. It is a collection of stunningly beautiful moments when everything lined up–a moment in time that’s still here to be treasured.

This LP Box set contains 4 x 180 gram vinyl records housed in 12 x 12 rigid slipcases with 2 books containing notes, new collage artwork, lyrics and more.
