Digitally remastered and expanded deluxe edition of this 1995 album from the Alt-Rock band led by Billy Corgan. The Deluxe Box Set’s 5 CDs include 64 bonus tracks of previously unreleased material or alternate versions of Mellon Collie era songs. The bonus content and special features were curated from the band’s archives by Corgan, and have been painstakingly remastered for the first time from the original master tapes by Bob Ludwig.

Originally released October 24, 1995, MELLON COLLIE AND THE INFINITE SADNESS would debut at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart and was certified 9x platinum by the RIAA. It yielded major hits like “Bullet With Butterfly Wings” the band’s unlikely first Top 40 hit the exquisite “1979” and epic “Tonight, Tonight” as well as a thoroughly inspired series of videos. Produced by BILLY CORGAN, Flood and Alan Moulder, the album would also earn a Grammy Award (1996 Best Hard Rock Performance for “Bullet With Butterfly Wings”) as well as seven nominations. Beyond the more obvious hits, though, MELLON COLLIE is a song cycle of unusual depth and considerable range. It is a collection of stunningly beautiful moments when everything lined up–a moment in time that’s still here to be treasured.

The Smashing Pumpkins didn’t shy away from making the follow-up to the grand, intricate Siamese Dream. With Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, the band turns in one of the most ambitious and indulgent albums in rock history. Lasting over two hours and featuring 28 songs, the album is certainly a challenging listen. To Billy Corgan’s credit, it’s a rewarding and compelling one as well. Although the artistic scope of the album is immense, The Smashing Pumpkins flourish in such an overblown setting. Corgan’s songwriting has never been limited by conventional notions of what a rock band can do, even if it is clear that he draws inspiration from scores of ’70s heavy metal and art rock bands. Instead of copying the sounds of his favorite records, he expands on their ideas, making the gentle piano of the title track and the sighing “1979” sit comfortably against the volcanic rush of “Jellybelly” and “Zero.” In between those two extremes lies an array of musical styles, drawing from rock, pop, folk, and classical. Some of the songs don’t work as well as others, but Mellon Collie never seems to drag. Occasionally they fall flat on their face, but over the entire album, The Smashing Pumpkins prove that they are one of the more creative and consistent bands of the ’90s.
