Fact And Fiction = 3 CD, Digipack = (CD)
Fact And Fiction is the latest of the Twelfth Night original albums to be given the Definitive Edition treatment, and released by the excellent F2/Festival Music label. However, in a change to the previous releases, rather than augment the original LP with other tracks that featured in the band's live set at the time, this time there is more focus on the original tracks giving a glimpse of how they developed through the various processes of writing, rehearsing, demoing, recording, and finally being played live. In addition as a number of cover versions and re-workings already existed, new recordings were commissioned from band members, contemporaries and current artists to show how other artists interpreted the tracks, and these really complement the Twelfth Night versions, and bring out the true strength of the original songs. To accompany the CDs there are some extensive, sleeve notes written specially, including an extract from Michael Anthony's 'Words & Music' book that reviews Geoff's lyric writing in incisive detail. In addition there are never-before seen scans of some of Geoff's original handwritten lyrics and sketches, as well as new photos, etc. The content of the three CDs is: Disc One - Studio 1982, Disc Two - Live 1983-2012 and Demos 1982, Disc Three - Covers & Interpretations 1983-2018. Disc One includes all the recordings done at Revolution studios: the album, the single, and the original version of Human Being. For the first time it includes the sound of the 'locked doors of paradise' showing how Human Being was originally linked to East Of Eden. Disc Two includes a live version of each album track compiled from a number of different sources enabling you to hear how Geoff, Andy and Mark (and the rest of the band) interpreted the songs on stage. Several of these recordings are previously unreleased, most notably the three tracks recorded at Geoff's farewell shows in 1983. Although these songs were released on Live And Let Live, two of these versions are from the night not featured on that album, specially remixed for this release by Karl Groom. There are also as-they-were-played renditions of World Without End and Creepshow, the latter from 2012's
