Limited 12' x 12' box containing the original album on 180gm vinyl remastered by James Dean Bradfield plus four CDs and a 40 page book. The CD's contain the remastered full album, the remastered US version, b-sides, mixes, live versions and a previously unreleased version of 'Revol'. There is also a live CD of the band's last performances with guitarist Richey Edwards from the Astoria, December 1994. It is rounded up with a few acoustic tracks from the album from a recent BBC Radio 4 Mastertapes session the band recorded at Maida Vale in September 2014. On it's release in 1994, in many eyes, THE HOLY BIBLE elevated Manic Street Preachers from being a fascinating, yet flawed rock band with more mission statements than melodies, to an immense intellectual colossus with razor sharp, post-punk tunes that stood out from their contemporaries. In a year that saw Britpop dominate the radio and press, THE HOLY BIBLE tackled subjects such as the Holocaust, the Brady Bill, anorexia, political correctness and other non-chart friendly topics. From the Jenny Saville artwork on the sleeve to the opening single 'Faster' with singer James Dean Bradfield appearing on Top of the Pops in a balaclava prompting thousands of complaints, this was clearly an album not to be dismissed as just the Manics' third album - it was their masterpiece.
