Notes

Deluxe double vinyl 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.

The second record features selected recordings of the band performing live at the Bottom Line club in NYC in October 1987, plus two further live tracks from WOMAD in August 1988.

The double vinyl set comes in a gatefold sleeve featuring original artwork by 8vo. A 3CD edition will also be available.
