There are total of 10 bonus tracks with a lyrics booklet.

Is this a legitimate release? There is no mention of it on any of the (official) Clan Of Xymox links on that page. If it IS, then this would be awesome, as it's nearly impossible to find the related CD-Singles ("Imagination" & "Obsession") and they are INCREDIBLY expensive if you can!

There were from a 4AD 12", so they would need to be licensed for this reissue. The tracks are on the Medusa CD.

It looks legit--it's apparently being released by Pylon, who are also doing the Nitzer Ebb reissues. Pylon doesn't have a listing for it yet but they name Clan of Xymox as a client on their Facebook page. This is a long overdue reissue.

putting them on medusa was weird. and felt out of place.

It's almost certainly not worth the hassle to license three tracks from 4AD that are readily available on CD, especially considering that Pylon's already adding a full disc of stuff that essentially hasn't been widely available on CD. And these versions sound much closer to their Medusa sound than Twist of Shadows; I think they'd be out of place on this.

I was only looking in Discogs at Xymox and not Clan Of Xymox.

I'll get Medusa.

And they sounded out of place there... would have fitted way better here + would have shown the development of the sound.
But obviously I can understand why Pylon wouldn't license them from 4AD due to the above mentioned availability.
Would be interesting how involved the band are in this re-release or if it is just a label thing. At least some hard to find stuff will be available for a greater audience again.

I have been waiting for this release for years, but now its all about how the remaster will sound.....

Too bad they couldnt include everything with regards to bonus material already available and unreleased (demos / rehearsals / unreleased instrumentals etc.).
