Notes
While for many, the War of the Worlds remastered double CD and 48 page booklet set will provide enough prog rock fun, true aficionados will be filled with intergalactic glee when they see how many goodies accompany the collector's edition--a whopping seven CDs that start with the two remastered discs, then disc 3, which contains the best club/DJ remixes sampled from the original recording (including N-Trance's club-y version of the hit "Forever Autumn" and a take on "Brave New World" from famed house producer/DJ Todd Terry. Discs 4 through 6 deserve awards for unprecedented attention to fandom: three full CDs of outtakes, ranging from the original 1975 radio commercial, to acoustic demos of songs, to an additional 37 minutes of previously unheard Richard Burton narrative. Many of the best add-ons, however, exist on disc 7, a 92-minute DVD documentary featuring "The Making of" as well as a full album deconstruction, narrated by Jeff Wayne himself. The whole shebang is packaged in a hardcover 76-page book which features a written history, HG Wells' bio, and a plethora of full-color artwork.
