More information: Remastered in 2005 at Steve Hackett's MAP studios by engineer Benedict Fenner, in direct collaboration with Steve. Includes previously unreleased bonus tracks and new liner notes. Packaged in a jewel-case surrounded by a card slip-case featuring the original cover artwork.
A wealth of bonus material! - The fabled Hercules Unchained, originally released in 1980 as the B-side to the single version of 'The Show’ and never before legitimately available on CD. A rendition of Sentimental Institution recorded live at London’s Theatre Royal, Drury Lane in 1979 (previously unreleased) and (also available for the first time), 1981 Reading Festival performances of The Steppes, Slogans & Clocks
A gold selling album recorded with Steve's touring band of the time. Heavier leanings are evident in tracks such as "The Steppes" and "Slogans" but witness also the magnificent acoustic piano of "Hammer In The Sand".
