Well, the news has sunk in and the details are posted to FTM Online. 

On The Third Day bonus tracks are not entirely unexpected.  The main album remastered is the most exciting aspect here.

Face The Music looks fine except for a useless USA single edit taking up space. I'm quite intriqued at the stripped down mix of Evil Woman.  There were a few b-sides for this album's singles which were never used... and apparently still won't be.  Then again, they'd make good iTunes material.

Without question, the most anticipated of this bunch will be A New World RecordSurrender is a surprise.  I heard a few of the bonus tracks at Camp Rob in Ontario a few years back.  They are quite simply: awesome.  It's a totally different experience hearing the rough instrumental mixes of So Fine and Tightrope.  (For the record, I've not heard Tightrope yet.)   It not only shows how amazing these guys were on this record, but the enormous talent that went into creating the orchestral arrangements.  You'll flip, I promise you.
