A luxurious reissue initiated by the generous label Souffle Continu Records. The 30 cm vinyl format amplifies the impact of the visual, which already impressed in a 25 cm format more than forty years ago. The booklet reveals, also in large format, previously unpublished photographs, including live performances. It also includes, of course, a biography of the duo. The original album benefits from a new high quality mastering. The second vinyl is dedicated to the unreleased tracks, sixteen in all, (alternative or live takes, compilations) some of which were already on the CD reissue released by Spalax Records in 1997, but six are completely unreleased.
