More information: Porcupine Tree - The Delerium Years 1991 - 1993 traces the explosive start of Steven Wilson's career and the band he created, Porcupine Tree.

Following on from the acclaim for The Delerium Years 94-97 8LP set, The Delerium Years 91-93 is the second beautifully presented box set chronicling the evolution of one of the UK's brightest talents of the late 20th and early 21st centuries.

The band started out as little more than a joke. The punch line? Wilson's joke band was seriously good. Delerium Records, a record label for underground music, released Porcupine Tree's fresh take on psychedelic and progressive music to great success.

The box set includes the first two Porcupine Tree studio albums, 'On the Sunday of Life...', and 'Up the Downstair', as well as the 'Staircase Infinities' mini album, the 2 EPs that make up 'Voyage 34: The Complete Trip', and the archival album 'Yellow Hedgerow Dreamscape'. But these records aren't just the story of how Wilson had the last laugh when his joke band became a reality. These formative releases also trace how Wilson honed his craft and found his voice as an artist.

The LPs (pressed on 180g heavyweight vinyl) have been remastered by Steven Wilson. 'Yellow Hedgerow Dreamscape' and 'On the Sunday of Life...' feature Steven's remasters for the most recent CD editions, which used the original analogue tapes for the first time rather than the digital copies made in the early 90's used for all previous editions. The other albums have all been specifically remastered for this set with more naturalistic dynamics and EQ. Additionally 'Voyage 34' uses the full length version of "Phase IV" as featured on the original 12 inch single release.
