Editors’ Notes Both James albums were originally intended to be released as a single double album, with Laid representing the group's more song-oriented side and Wah Wah the more experimental or “jamming” side. Both were recorded during a six-week period at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Complex with producer Brian Eno. This super-deluxe edition features the original albums plus extensive demos, live tracks, radio sessions, B-sides, and rarities, many never before released. The beauty of the bonus tracks is hearing how the band’s ideas evolved over time, with Eno challenging the group to go beyond their comfort zone.
