• Joining the original album are a second disc of B-sides and previously unissued outtakes, a third disc wholly devoted to hitherto unheard demos and a fourth disc of in-concert material culled from shows around the globe (again, previously unreleased). For good measure, Disc 5 revisits the band’s subsequent soundtrack album, Hello Blackbird.

• Among the bonus tracks are Rev-esque versions of Bobby Charles’ Catskill Mountains inspired masterpiece ‘Tennessee Blues’, the plaintive modern spiritual ‘Afraid’ originally recorded by Nico, two Paul Westerberg penned gems ‘Androgynous’ and ‘Good Day’, Daniel Johnston’s ode to healing ‘Blue Clouds’ as well as a sublime Rev duet featuring Bonnie Anthony on their version of ‘I Never Had It So Good’ (a song the Rev chose from Kris and Rita’s 1973 LP “Full Moon”.

• This expanded edition of THE SECRET MIGRATION is presented as a plush, hardbook book containing original album lyrics, lots of visuals and new sleeve-notes by acclaimed author and journalist Barney Hoskyns.
