Vienna 40th anniversary 5CD+DVD box

Ultravox's 1980 album ’s Vienna album is reissued for its 40th anniversary as an extensive 5CD+DVD box set that includes a plethora of unreleased material and Steven Wilson stereo and 5.1 mixes. 

Produced by Conny Plank, the album was the band's first for Chrysalis and the first to feature Midge Ure on lead vocals. It originally peaked at number three in the UK album chart, with its title track famously thwarted from reaching the top of the singles chart by that song by Joe Dolce. 'All Stood Still', the final of four singles followed 'Vienna' into the top ten in June 1981.

The six-disc box set features 66 tracks, 44 of which are previously unreleased recordings or mixes. It comprises the following

  • CD 1 - Original 1980 album (newly mastered from production tapes)
  • CD 2 - New Steven Wilson stereo mix of album and B-sides
  • CD 3 - A-sides, B-sides, 12-inch mixes and live tracks
  • CD 4 - Cassette rehearsals
  • CD 5 - Live from St. Albans 1980 (newly mixed)
  • DVD - 5.1 Steven Wilson mix (+ 24/96 hi-res stereo of new mixes) + B-sides. Also hi-res stereo of original album and original mixes of B-sides!

This 5CD+DVD comes packaged in a 12" x 12" rigid slipcase and includes a 20-page large format booklet featuring notes from the band, unseen photos from Midge Ure’s and Chris Cross’ personal collection, four A4 art prints.
