Be Bop Deluxe / Futurama super deluxe

3CD+DVD box set • New 5.1 surround & stereo mixes • BBC ‘In Concert’


English prog rock band Be Bop Deluxe‘s 1975 album Futurama is being reissued by Esoteric as a 4-disc expanded box set in April.

Recorded in early ’75, largely at Rockfield studios, Futurama was the band’s second album the first to feature the line-up of Bill Nelson (vocals, guitars, keyboards), Charlie Tumahai (bass, vocals) and Simon Fox (drums). It was produced by Roy Thomas Baker.

This expanded reissue features content across three CDs and a DVD, including newly re-mastered audio (from the original master tapes), new stereo and 5.1 surround mixes (by Stephen W. Tayler), a previously issued BBC Radio ‘In Concert’ performance, a John Peel session, a couple of unissued alternate versions of Futurama album tracks and more.

The box set comes with a ‘lavishly illustrated’ 68-page book with many previously unseen photographs and an essay of recollections by Bill Nelson. You also get a facsimile record store poster for Futurama, replica track sheets, and postcards.

This Futurama 3CD+DVD box set is released on 31 May 2019 [was 26 April]
