Two CD edition. Features an additional 17 bonus tracks drawn from a stunning new stereo mix of the album from the original multi-track tapes by award winning engineer Stephen W. Tayler, along with both sides of the rare Smile Records single 'Teenage Archangel' b/w 'Jets at Dawn' released by the band in 1973 prior to being signed to EMI. Also included are previously unreleased out-takes from the original album sessions. Digitally remastered and expanded edition of Axe Victim, the legendary 1974 debut album by Be Bop Deluxe. Recorded in the Spring of 1974 at several studios in London, Axe Victim was released by EMI's Harvest label in June 1974 to much critical praise and introduced Be Bop Deluxe to the record buying public. Axe Victim was a fine debut and was championed by DJ John Peel. Although Bill Nelson was still finding his creative feet, Axe Victim featured some fine material including the classic Adventures in a Yorkshire Landscape, along with other fine material such as 'Night Creatures', 'Third Floor Heaven' (which featured Babe Ruth vocalist Jenny Haan guesting), 'Jets at Dawn' and the superb 'Darkness (L'Immoraliste)'.
