Brilliant Adventure (1992 – 2001)

parlophone / iso records

11cd boxset

Released: 26th Nov 2021


limited 18lp boxset

Released: 26th Nov 2021


Collecting together the Thin White Duke’s experimentally fertile 90s period, an era overflowing with electronic chutzpah, pushed boundaries, and reflected in the intimidating array of genre-warping on display across these discs.

Exclusive to the Brilliant Adventure box set are BBC Radio Theatre: London, June 27, 2000 and Re:Call 5. The former was recorded two days after the famous Glastonbury performance in front of 500 lucky fans at the BBC’s art deco theatre in central London. Re:Call 5 features 39 non-album / alternative version / B-sides and soundtrack songs over 3CDs and 4LPs. Both BBC Radio Theatre: London, June 2000 and Re:Call 5 are exclusive to the box set. The CD box set will include faithfully reproduced mini-vinyl versions of the original albums where applicable, and the CDs will be gold coloured rather than the usual silver. The physical box set’s accompanying book of 84 pages features rarely seen and previously unpublished photos by photographers including Frank W. Ockenfels 3, Nick Knight, John Scarisbrick and Nina Schultz Terner and others, as well as memorabilia, technical notes about the albums from producers/engineers Brian Eno, Nile Rodgers, Reeves Gabrels and Mark Plati as well as a new an interview with ‘The Buddha of Suburbia’ collaborator Erdal Kizilçay.
