Notes

Expanded 3CD deluxe edition of the sixth studio album originally released by Factory Records in 1987.

The origin of The Guitar and Other Machines was the Christmas present given by Factory founder Tony Wilson to Durutti mainman Vini Reilly in 1985. "He gave me another kick and bought me a load of electronic instruments," revealed Reilly at the time. "I never dreamt of getting into this electronic thing, and I struggled and fought and stayed up til half seven in the morning and really worked on it. I know that Tony's got this vision and I persevered. And I found a way of using a sequencer that isn't like New Order – it's my way, and it's my music."

Produced by Stephen Street (The Smiths; Morrissey), the album also features percussionist Bruce Mitchell and viola player John Metcalfe. Remastered in 2017, this new FBN edition restores all three bonus tracks included on the original Factory CD, being experimental pieces written and recorded with Jez Kerr and Simon Topping of A Certain Ratio.

CD2 features many associated recordings, including the rare Greetings 3 EP (released only in Italy), non-album tracks such as Our Lady of the Angels, LFO Mod, acoustic instrumental Catos con Guantes, various mixes of When the World, Jefferson Airplane cover White Rabbit, and several ‘sporadic recordings' which revisit themes first heard on the original album.

CD3 features a recording of the band live at the Bottom Line club in NYC in October 1987, plus two further live tracks from WOMAD in August 1988.

The 3CD set is housed in a clamshell box with individual interior wallets. A 2LP vinyl edition will also be available, featuring the core studio album plus live versions of selected album tracks on Disc 2.
