Disc two includes a couple of Be-Bop Deluxe's live radio appearances from the BBC in 1978. The sound of these recordings is exceptional and it shows the band in top form, as they perform the new wave/punk anthems "Superenigmatix" and "Possession." The third disc of the set features a new stereo mix of the album, which gives it a cleaner, clearer sound, which is especially present in the harder rock songs like "New Precision" and "Love In Flames." Lead singer/guitarist Bill Nelson's demos make up the fourth CD in this set and may the the treasure that fans have been waiting to hear. While the recordings may be on the rougher side, hearing the development of songs like "Islands Of The Dead," "New Mysteries" and "Dangerous Stranger" give the listener a new appreciation for the final result.
The two DVDs include home movie footage of the "Drastic Plastic" sessions and the original broadcast of their 1978 appearance on "Sight & Sound In Concert" for BBC television. The set also includes a 68-page book filled with previously unseen photos and a new essay by former band member Bill Nelson, along with a replica poster and postcards.
