CommentReleased exclusively in the 40th Anniversary Box Set including all MMEB albums (and then some). This disc contains some of the bonus tracks that were left off the albums compared to the previous remasters series. Tracks 2, 3, 4, 7, 11, 13, 14 and 16 previously unreleased. "Big Betty" was re-written for "Glorified Magnified" as "Look Around" (tracks 2 - 4 are all early versions from the Glorified Magnified recording process, taken from a tape reel that Manfred left on a train somewhere and was kept by a fan for many years!). Particularly interesting for fans are the full length versions of "Crossfire" (with vocals!) and "What You Give is What You Get" (a revelation for fans: the first half of "Planets Schmanets" is actually the end part of this track!), though both seem to be running a bit slow. The "Unreleased Version" of "Joybringer" is a longer variant of the 1987 re-recording (including the "feelings inside that we keep..." bridge known from the original that was omitted from the Masque version). Not sure whether "Demons & Dragons" is any different from the album version - the rap is still there...seems to be identical except for something between 2:04 and 2:07, but even that is only noticeable when you invert one against the other. The equalization seems to slightly differ (remastering?) but again, hardly noticeable. The drums on that track don't sound any better here either, unfortunately. "Runner" is the full 12" version. The average DR of the box set (calculated by adding the DR values for each disc and dividing the sum by 21) is DR 12.
