Zang Tuub Records via Union Square Music are putting together an “ultra-deluxe” box set in honor of the 30th anniversary of Frankie Goes To Hollywood’s fantastic debut album, Welcome To The PleasureDome.

Inside The PleasureDome was launched by PledgeMusic as a means to see who would be interested. They made a target to see if funds could be raised to release it and in 50 hours, they released the 50% mark for the target. As I write this, they’re at the 66% mark. This deluxe edition box will feature:

  • A 2014 vinyl edition of the original album, remastered at Sarm Studios by Trevor Horn and his 2014 team, pressed on 180g audiophile vinyl and packaged in a unique die-cut sleeve designed to frame one of three accompanying prints by original Pleasuredome sleeve artist, Lo Cole.
  • A set of three 10″ singles compiling previously unreleased mixes of Relax, Two Tribes, The Power of Love and and various album tracks.
  • A 48-page hardback book celebrating the artwork of Welcome To The Pleasuredome, with contributions from Paul Morley and photographers John Stoddart and Peter Ashworth
  • A DVD compiling the classic Pleasuredome videos by Godley & Creme and 5.1 surround sound audio mixes of the singles and album tracks
  • A 13-track, 90-minute cassette anthology of Relax remixes; and a frame-by-frame flipbook of a rare Frankie animated film
