Personnel

Notes

  • Originally released in 1991 by Caroline Records in the US, Hut Records in the UK. In late 1994, the album was slightly remastered and subsequently re-released under the Virgin banner with an accompanying re-release on Hut. This was not highly publicized, and is hardly noticeable.

    The easiest way to differentiate between the two releases is to check the label on the spine. Other differences include the CD color (original pressing: purple with picture, Remastered: Virgin - purple with no picture, Hut - red), and publishing credits (original: Copyright Control, remastered: Cinderful Music/Cellophane Music).

    The new LPs have the word "Remastered" under the bar code.
  • "I Am One" and "Tristessa" were re-recorded for inclusion on this album.
  • Vocals on "Daydream" are by D'arcy.
  • There is a short mystery track after "Daydream", which Billy Corgan identified as "I'm Going Crazy" in a 1996 interview. (2/3/96 - KROQ Los Angeles)
  • The Japanese CD release has a white CD inlay, and an 18 page booklet including full Japanese and English lyrics of all songs on Gish along with 5 pages with Japanese writings (presumably about the band) by Mr. Hiro Arishima, dated 22 July 1991 and 28 April 1994.
  • There is some confusion on the release order of various pressings of this album. It is known that the initial US batch was done in Germany because it was where it could be produced the cheapest (CARCD16/CARLP2). Later they were pressed by Hut (HUTCD/HUTLP/HUTCS), for the UK release.
  • The PO Box listed for the fan club has the wrong box number: box 587010 (as opposed to box 578010 in SD and PI). This was corrected on the remastered version.
  • 2011 reissue is re-transferred and mastered from the original tape reels. Vinyl release mastered specifically for vinyl.
  • 2011 Deluxe reissueincludes 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 on 1990/08/25, with new introduction by Metro owner Joe Shanahan. An acoustic practice session of Crush from 1994 is included as a bonus, since the concert was short. Also features "re-imagined" artwork, 6 postcards featuring never-before-seen band photos, 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.
  • Blue (Gish sessions demo) is the same version as on Mashed Potatoes, but with some extra studio banter at the beginning.
  • 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.
