Additional Information

Released on 21st November 2011. 

This 5LP boxed set completes the Machine series started in 1978 and includes Telekon as a double album and Living Ornaments ‘81 as a 3LP set. The five discs are packed in a stark black box with the iconic 2 red parallel belts printed in a gloss red.

Living Ornaments ‘81 was recorded on the last night at Wembley Arena on April 28th, this was Numan’s finale, his farewell to live performance having made this decision during the making of the ‘Telekon’ album. The lavish stage sets had featured in the 1979 and 1980 tours which were previously released as 2LP boxed sets in the Living Ornaments Series. Living Ornaments 1981 is remastered and spread across 3 discs. Each album is pressed on 180g vinyl and comes in heavyweight single sleeves with new artwork and inners bags. The songs from the show cover a whole period from ‘Are Friends Electric’, ‘Down In The Park’, to ‘Cars’ and ‘I Die You Die’, ‘We Are Glass’ aswell as the future single ‘She’s Got Claws’ from his next album ‘Dance’. This concert is considered to be, by many fans and critics alike, one of Numans most charismatic live performances.

Telekon is again remastered from the original analogue tapes and is released for the very first time as a DOUBLE ALBUM. The original album was only released as a single disc in a value-for money move which excluded the two singles ‘We Are Glass’ and ‘I Die: You Die’, they are reunited for this edition. Pressed on 180g vinyl the 2LP set is packaged in TWO brand new single album sleeves only available in this boxed edition, plus newly designed inner bags.
