Limited pressing of 1000 copies on 180gm black vinyl, gatefold sleeve. One of the most important Joy Division discoveries ever- with the approval of Martin Hannett's family- Martin Hannett's own mix tapes of the 1978 and 1979 Cargo Studios,Rochdale sessions plus Hannett's other mixes of songs and sound effects probably from Strawberry and Britannia Row - Martin Hannett had a habit of running quarter inch tape machines throughout all Joy Division recording sessions and had an agreement with the band and Rob Gretton and Tony Wilson to create his own versions of the recording sessions and would often go into the various studios without the band and continually remix what he had recorded on those tapes and experiment feeding what he had recorded through his AMS delays and play around with synthesisers. It is Martin's use of these wierd and wonderful sound effects and synth sounds on Joy Division recordings that made Joy Division studio recordings stand out above any other punk or post punk band from that time and this cd gives an insight into the sounds Martin Hannett had in his head and what he fed into the Joy Division sound. Tracks included many with multiple versions are : Digital, Glass, Atmosphere, Dead souls, Ice age, N4 (Decades), Eternal. Also features interviews and many of the original sound samples. Features one track not on the CD version - Glass (The unhinged tryout mix take five).
