Not really unreleased material,
This review is from: Unknown Pleasures [Re-Mastered Re-Issues] (Audio CD)
BEWARE! If you already own the Heart and Soul box set, then you already own all but 2 of the tracks on this 2 CD set, since Unknown Pleasures is included in its entirety on the box set, and the first 10 tracks on Disc 4 are 10 of the 12 tracks on the bonus live CD. The 2 tracks not on the box set are Shadowplay (in fact previously unreleased from this gig), and Transmission, previously available on the 1988 Atmosphere CD single and on one of the 1995 Love Will Tear Us Apart CD singles. Still a good gig. Actual date and location were The Factory, Hulme, Manchester, July 13, 1979.

More importantly: Is the sound improved by the remaster and are the versions faithful or gimmicky? Everyone knows that early digital CD transfers were brittle and harsh; most Closer fans already have the original album, and there isn't much need to educate people about a 28-year-old classic. Most would only buy this if the sound were warmer and less unintentionally jagged. If the answer is *no*, then I'll stick with my vinyl copy.
