Personnel

Notes

  • This box is comprised of the 5 singles from MCIS, with 3 of them being the extended European versions. BWBW, originally a 2-tracker, now contains an additional 5 cover songs exclusive to this box:

    "You're All I've Got Tonight" (The Cars)
    "Clones (We're All)" (Alice Cooper)
    "A Night Like This" (The Cure)
    "Destination Unknown" (Missing Persons)
    "Dreaming" (Blondie)

    It comes packaged in a black-and-white "retro-45 RPM carrying case", and contains a 44-page booklet with pictures and a very basic discography.

  • The wrong font is used for the last letter of the "Destination Unknown" track listing on the back of the BWBW single.

    Deluxe Re-Issue bonus track info:
  • Disc 1 tracks 8-22 recorded at Gravity Studios, Chicago, IL March 15-16, 1994. Tracks appearing on Billy's Gravity Demos I are the same, albeit higher quality. "Little Ditty" contains a short tease of "Spiteface".
  • Disc 2 tracks 7-16, misc. studio demos & outtakes. The TAFH "acoustic snippet" is the source of the very end of the normal recording. "Have Love Will Travel" is the last track from MCIS Demos II, whose title was previously unknown.
  • Disc 3 tracks 8-15 recorded Live at the Double Door, Chicago, IL February 27, 1995
  • Disc 4 tracks 8-16 recorded Live at the Double Door, Chicago, IL February 21, 27 & 28, 1995
  • Disc 5 track 7 recorded Live at USAir Arena, Landover, MD July 10, 1996
  • Disc 6 all tracks recorded live 1996 (dates listed above). Track 9 mislabeled as "Porcelina of the Vast Oceans/Beautiful/Drown medley".
  • DVD footage recorded at Eurock√©ennes Festival, Belfort, France July 4, 1997. "Heartbreaker" tease and "Zero" are not included.
