Next week, the Smashing Pumpkins will reissue The Aeroplane Flies High, their 5-disc release of expanded versions of singles from their double album Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness and we have a 5-LP version to giveaway to one Stereogum reader. The collection, which will be released on 7/23 by Virgin/UMe, features the same 33-song tracklist of album cuts (“Bullet With Butterfly Wings,” “1979,” “Zero,” “Tonight, Tonight,” and “Thirty-Three”) and their companion cuts remastered by acclaimed engineer Bob Ludwig. It also bolsters 104 additional tracks, including demos, alternative versions, liver recordings, and audio-visual tracks. The boxset also includes “a 46-page book with liner notes written by David Wild, plus extensive track-by-track notes by the Smashing Pumpkins founder-singer-songwriter-guitarist Billy Corgan for the original release’s 33 tracks. The box set has unique packaging with embossed foil wrap & twinkle stock for jackets.” Find the full tracklist here and the entry details below.
