The CD edition is presented as a deluxe triple CD set with a 26 page booklet, alongside a 1989 concert performance of the City group, mixed live by Brian Eno, plus a carefully edited sequence of alternate takes, demos and re-interpretations.

It will be the trailer of the forthcoming Montreux Jazz Festival!
