Notes

  • The 1st pressing of the US CD contained a 20 page booklet, with each song getting its own page with barely decipherable handwritten lyrics. Later pressings reduced all these pages into one 4-panel foldout. On November 16, 1999, Virgin reissued Siamese Dream with the original 20-page booklet. This will now be the current pressing. European versions continue to be produced with the 20 page booklet.
  • There are two versions of the US _Siamese Dream_. The regular version lists all song titles on the back, and the "clean version", manufactured to sell in stores like Wal-Mart, lists no track information, presumably to keep the title "Silverfuck" from corrupting the Youth of America or offending the Blue Hairs. The CD itself is identical on both releases.
  • The Japanese CD release has a white CD inlay and the 20 page booklet including a Japanese lyric sheet to all songs (with the exception of Pissant). Also contains 4 pages of Japanese writings (presumably about the band) by Mr. Hiro Arishima, dated 15 June 1993. It also has an additional track called "Hikari Express", which is just "Pissant". The CD itself has the Hut UK number (CDHUT11) printed on it.
  • Different editions of the CD have the talking between Spaceboy and Silverfuck as part of different tracks. Supposedly, the US and Canadian versions have the segment attached to Silverfuck with UK, European and Japanese attached to Spaceboy. This is not a hard and fast rule however, as my US version has the segment on the end of Spaceboy.
  • The UK 2xLP has a dull coated cover, while the US versions have a glossy coat.
  • The South American 2LP pressing differs in the following ways: the sleeve is made of cheaper material; the red lettering (such as the band, album name & song titles) is black on this pressing; and the center label misprints "Greek USA", although it is correct on the sleeve.
  • The Siamese Dream Collector's Edition is a wooden box with brass hinges that contains an autographed CD copy of the album and the 1st pressing booklet. The autographs are merely stamped reproductions. There are also reports of the box commonly being sold without the CD or booklets.
  • The Korean cassette has the band name printed in orange, and the four-panel insert includes all lyrics in English. Lyrics misprint "Luna" as "Juna", although it is correct on the outside sleeve and cassette.
  • The Brazilian pressing is the only 12" version of this record to be pressed on one LP. It does not come with an inner sleeve, nor is the outer sleeve a gatefold. The artwork is a poor reproduction of the original, and the sound quality is lesser than the standard US release.
  • 2011 reissue, re-transferred and mastered from the original tape reels.
  • 2011 reissue, re-transferred and mastered from the original tape reels, and mastered specifically for vinyl release. 180-gram, double-gatefold, single LP.
  • 2011 Deluxe reissue, re-transferred and mastered from the original tape reels. Includes an extra disc of outtakes, demos, and alternate versions (all previously unreleased except where indicated *), as well as a DVD containing a full-length show from the Metro in Chicago from 1993/08/14, with new introduction by Metro owner Joe Shanahan. Also features "re-imagined" artwork, 13 postcards featuring original album collages, and a 24-page booklet featuring lyrics, liner notes by author/journalist/Rolling Stone contributing editor David Wild, and track-by-track annotations by Billy Corgan.
  • 2011 digital downloads: Premium digital gives you a choice of Apple Lossless, FLAC or 320 kbps MP3. High-fidelity digital offers source files in 24-bit/96kHz WAV format. Digital downloads, as well as the other 2011 re-releases, can be ordered at http://www.smashingpumpkins.com/reissues.
