Last month, beloved alt-rock heroes the Smashing Pumpkins reissued their 1996 box set ‘The Aeroplane Flies High,’ and together with our buds at Loudwire and Noisecreep, we’re giving away a copy. One lucky winner scores this 6-CD/DVD treasure trove of Pumpkins goodies — enter via the widget above!
As fans know, the original ‘Aeroplane’ featured expanded versions of the singles from the Pumpkins’ critically acclaimed, Grammy-nominated 1995 album ‘Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness.’ The new edition adds a ton of bonus material, boosting the total number of tracks from 33 to 104. (See the full list here.) It also features remastered audio and rare versions of all your Pumpkins favorites, including ‘Bullet With Butterfly Wings,’ ‘1979′ and ‘Tonight, Tonight.’
Also stuffed into the ‘Aeroplane’ box is a sixth disc comprising recordings from the 1996 Mellon Collie tour and a DVD with footage from the band’s July 4, 1997, performance in Belfort, France. To top it off, the pack includes a 46-page booklet of liner notes written by David Wild, along with track-by-track notes by Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan.
