The second CD features a live version of the album recorded during the band’s 1998 European tour as well as a soundcheck recording of “We Only Say Goodbye” and a studio cover version of the Scorpions “In Trance”. The third CD in the package consists of demos from the pre-production and writing sessions for  “A Pleasant Shade of Gray”.   Finally, the DVD portion of the set consists of two complete live performances of “A Pleasant Shade Of Gray”. The first is a restored and re-edited version of the band’s 1998 VHS release and the second was filmed at The Whisky in Hollywood CA in 1999. Pre-orders as well as the first samples of music from this special edition will be available next Friday August 6th.
