Warner Bros. Whip Up Some Deluxe Devo for the Holidays


11/20/2009
.
Electro-art-rock iconoclasts Devo celebrate their early recorded works from the Warner Bros. Records vaults with an expanded Ultra Devo-lux, Limited Edition four-disc set of their first and third groundbreaking albums: Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo! and Freedom Of Choice, available online only through www.clubdevo.com this holiday season.

Both albums have been re-mastered from the original analog recordings and housed in DEVO-luxish packages with a plethora of audio and video bonus material including the Live at the Forum, London 2009 concert video. The package also includes an original 7-inch colored vinyl single of "Jocko Homo"/"Mongoloid," plus an original 18" x 30" foldout poster and 16-page booklet. The Devo-Lux package will be sold for $49.99. Each order will include a digital audio download delivered upon order. A limited number of orders will also include autographed B/W 8x10 vintage Devo promo photos from the Warner Bros. Records vaults. These are the definitive versions of the band's classic works, supremely packaged and loaded with previously unreleased rarities made available for the first time ever.

Just how Devo-Lux are we talking here? This special collector's edition contains the complete audio CD of Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo! the Brian Eno-produced album re-mastered from the original analog recordings, plus three previously unreleased demos from the DEVO archives. These ultra-rare recordings were committed to tape by the band between 1975 and 1977, including one track produced by Joe Walsh (Ex-James Gang and future Eagle). Believe it! These early recordings provide a unique view into the primitive early world of DEVO.

The second audio disc is comprised of the complete Devo-produced third album, Freedom Of Choice, also re-mastered from the original tapes. Bonus tracks include the rare six-track Dev-O Live EP, recorded live at the Warfield in San Francisco circa 1980. The package also includes three more previously unreleased demos from the DEVO vaults that were recorded at Modern Music Rehearsal Studio in Hollywood, CA, and the Record Plant in Los Angeles in 1979, and are available now for the first time ever and exclusive to this release only.

The first DVD disc contains the debut album performed live in its entirety from The HMV Forum in London 2009, and includes behind-the-scenes footage and more, exclusive to this release only. The second DVD disc is comprised of four classic DEVO video clips. Little did anyone know what kind of global impact these unique short promotional films would have upon the music world for years to come.

The Ultra Devo-Lux Ltd. Edition Package will sell out quickly so don't delay. Act now and achieve total audio and video bliss before it's too late because as we now truly know, Devolution Is Real!
