Today marks the day that EMI releases the remastered versions of The Smashing Pumpkins’ Gish and the Siamese Dream. To celebrate, PopMatters would like to give you a chance to win your own copy of the remastered Gish or Siamese Dream. We’d like to share some details on these exciting new remasters and please be sure to check out the album on iTunes at http://itunes.com/smashingpumpkins and visit the band’s site at http://smashingpumpkins.com/ to join the Record Club. 


From the assorted press releases:
As THE SMASHING PUMPKINS get the fully remastered treatment via these reissues, the band is excited to be moving forward by creating new music.  After touring America and Europe this fall—the trek launched October 5 in Los Angeles and wraps December 8 in Lisbon—they will release OCEANIA, “an album within an album,” as part of their in-progress 44-song work TEARGARDEN BY KALEIDYSCOPE.  Featuring 13 new songs, OCEANIA will be released in early 2012 (further details TBA).

Contest is now closed! Please be sure to check pick up Wish You Were Here on compact disc or vinyl!

But first we’d like to share some details on these expansive new releases.


From the press release:
Wish You Were Here Immersion 5-disc edition, includes previously unreleased material from the band’s 1974 Wembley dates, including a 20-minute live rendition of “Shine On You Crazy Diamond” and “Raving And Drooling” and “You’ve Got To Be Crazy,” two tracks that didn’t make it onto the original album and which were subsequently reworked to become “Sheep” and “Dogs” on the “Animals” album. ‘Immersion’ comes with an exclusive photo book edited by longtime Floyd photographer Jill Furmanovsky and a 36 page booklet designed by Storm Thorgerson. A must have for all Pink Floyd fans, the collection also includes the forgotten and unique recording of “Wish You Were Here,” featuring the legendary jazz violinist Stéphane Grappelli.
