This is the limited 4 LP box set, the re-mastered edition of the quartet's 1995 career-defining double album. Originally released October 24, 1995, the album would debut at number 1 on the Billboard 200 chart and was certified 9x platinum by the RIAA. It yielded major hits like "Bullet with Butterfly Wings" the band's unlikely first Top 40 hit the exquisite "1979" and epic "Tonight, Tonight" as well as a thoroughly inspired series of videos. Produced by Billy Corgan, Flood and Alan Moulder, the album earnt a Grammy Award, 1996 Best Hard Rock Performance for "Bullet with Butterfly Wings", as well as seven Grammy nominations. Beyond the more obvious hits, though, Mellon Collie is a song cycle of unusual depth and considerable range. It is a collection of stunningly beautiful moments when everything lined up in a moment in time that's still here to be treasured.
