'The Great Escape' maintained the band’s stratospheric success of 'parklife' with their second successive No1 entry into the album charts, with the 1995 release going on to sell 3xplatinum.

Accompanying the remastered album, the bonus disc of the Special Edition crams in 18 tracks, including all the b-sides from all formats of the 'Country House', 'The Universal', 'Stereotypes' & 'Charmless Man' singles. Among these b-sides are nestled a duet version of 'To The End' between Damon & Francoise Hardy, the Live It! remix of 'Entertain Me' & 4 tracks taken from the now legendary 1995 Blur gig at Mile End Stadium. Completing the bonus disc are 2 live tracks from Blur’s show at the Budokan arena in Tokyo (both of which were only previously released on the Japanese-only single release of 'It Could Be You'), plus the instrumental 'Eine Kleine Lift Musik', which originally formed part of the 1995 'Help War Child' compilation.
