Product Notes

Limited four disc (three CDs + NTSC/Region 0 DVD). Features an additional 41 bonus tracks drawn from stunning new 5. 1 surround sound and stereo mixes of the album from the original multi-track tapes by award winning engineer Stephen W. Tayler, along with two complete BBC Radio One sessions from November 1973 and May 1974, both sides of the rare Smile Records single 'Teenage Archangel' b/w 'Jets at Dawn' released by the band in 1973 prior to being signed to EMI. Also included is the complete previously unreleased Be Bop Deluxe audition session for Decca Records from December 1973 (mixed from the original 16 track tapes by Stephen W Tayler) and previously unreleased out-takes from the original album sessions. Digitally remastered and expanded edition of Axe Victim, the legendary 1974 debut album by Be Bop Deluxe. Recorded in the Spring of 1974 at several studios in London, Axe Victim was released by EMI's Harvest label in June 1974 to much critical praise and introduced Be Bop Deluxe to the record buying public. Axe Victim was a fine debut and was championed by DJ John Peel. Although Bill Nelson was still finding his creative feet, Axe Victim featured some fine material including the classic Adventures in a Yorkshire Landscape, along with other fine material such as 'Night Creatures', 'Third Floor Heaven' (which featured Babe Ruth vocalist Jenny Haan guesting), 'Jets at Dawn' and the superb 'Darkness (L'Immoraliste)'.
