Originally released in October of 1995, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart and went on to a nine time platinum certification by the RIAA. It yielded major hits like “Bullet With Butterfly Wings,” the band’s unlikely first Top 40 hit, the exquisite “1979” and the 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 is lined up, a moment in time that’s still here to be treasured.
EMI is doing just that by reissuing the album here across 4 x 180g LPs, remastered from the original analog masters for optimum sound quality for the first time and housed in a 12″ x 12″ rigid slipcase with 2 books containing personal notes, new collage artwork, lyrics and more. This reissue project was personally overseen by founding member Billy Corgan.
The Smashing Pumpkins have created one of the most acclaimed bodies of work in musical history with more than 30 million albums sold and multiple Grammy Award wins. Formed in Chicago in 1988, they released Gish, their influential and platinum debut in 1991, which was followed by the four-time platinum Siamese Dream and the nine time platinum Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, as well as the platinum certified 1998 album Adore. The pivotal group’s many hits defined the alternative music era and continue to resonate on modern rock radio, influencing a whole new generation!
