The last full chapter in the legacy of Joy Division
– an album that ws issued in the wake of the untimely early death of Ian Curtis – a special double-length set that brought together all the unreleased material at the time! The package features a number of tracks that the group were working on before Curtis died – material that still shows a much more Joy Division
-centric aesthetic than the sound of New Order to come – and the package also features live material from 1980 – an interesting change from the studio sound of the group (even though the whole set was still produced by Martin Hannett!) Features the group's famous cover of "Sister Ray", plus "Glass", "The Only Mistake", "The Sound Of Music", "Exercise One", "Dead Souls", "Walked In Line", "Ceremony", "Shadowplay", "Transmission", "Decades", "Digital", and "New Dawn Fades".
