Be Bop Deluxe - Axe Victim Deluxe 5.1 DVD

3CD+DVD deluxe set offers unreleased material and a 5.1 mix

Esoteric Recordings is to reissue English prog rockers Be Bop Deluxe‘s debut album Axe Victim as a four-disc deluxe box set in June.

The album was originally released by EMI’s Harvest imprint in June 1974 and featured the band’s first line-up of Bill Nelson (vocals, lead guitar, acoustic guitar, piano), Ian Parkin (rhythm & acoustic guitars, organ), Rob Bryan (bass guitar, vocals) and Nicholas Chatterton-Dew (drums).

This reissue features a newly remastered edition of the album (from the original tapes) and features two CDs of largely unreleased material, including two complete Radio One sessions and the complete previously unreleased Be Bop Deluxe audition for Decca Records from December 1973! (mixed from the original 16 track tapes by Stephen W Tayler).

Tayler has also been responsible a new 5. 1 surround sound mix and a stereo mix of the album created from the original multi-track tapes. These both feature on the included DVD.

This limited-edition box set comes with a 68-page book with unseen photos and an essay of recollections by Bill Nelson. It also comes with a poster and postcards.

DVD Track List:
1. Axe Victim (5.1 Surround Mix)
2. Love Is Swift Arrows (5.1 Surround Mix)
3. Jet Silver & the Dolls of Venus (5.1 Surround Mix)
4. Third Floor Heaven (5.1 Surround Mix)
5. Night Creatures (5.1 Surround Mix)
6. Rocket Cathedrals (5.1 Surround Mix)
7. Adventures in a Yorkshire Landscape(5.1 Surround Mix)
8. Jets at Dawn (Full Version) (5.1 Surround Mix)
9. No Trains to Heaven (5.1 Surround Mix)
10. Darkness (L’immoraliste) (5.1 Surround Mix)
11. Axe Victim (First Version)
12. (Previously Unreleased) (5.1 Surround Mix)
13. Night Creatures (Spoken Word Version) (Previously Unreleased) (5.1 Surround Mix)
14. Rocket Cathedrals (First Version) (Previously Unreleased) (5.1 Surround Mix)
