On Nov. 20, 2001, Virgin Records will release the long-awaited Smashing Pumpkins Greatest Hits Video Collection 1991-2000.
The video companion to the Smashing Pumpkins’ Greatest Hits CD Rotten Apples will feature over eighteen music videos chronicling the Pumpkins’ musical career. In total, the DVD contains over 90 minutes of solid music, as well as an array of extras, including commentary about the production of the clips by the band themselves, narration by the directors who lensed the videos, never-before-seen outtakes from the shoots, and bonus behind-the-scenes documentaries.
Among the highlights on the compilation are the band’s very first video, a clip for the song “Siva;” the MTV Awards-winning videos “Tonight, Tonight” and “1979;” and the Billy Corgan/Yelena Yemchuk-directed “Thirty-Three.” There are also two live performance clips – “Geek USA” (live from 1994) and “An Ode to No One” (live from the last show at the Metro in Chicago in December 2000); the short Jonas Akerlund-directed film “Try;” and the “Lost Tapes” documentary, which takes a look at the mystery behind the missing tapes from the “1979” video shoot. The set features videos by such acclaimed directors as Stephane Sednaoui, Jake Scott, Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris, Samuel Bayer, Dom & Nic, and Jonas Akerlund.
The Smashing Pumpkins Greatest Hits Video Collection 1991-2000 will also be available on VHS, and is scheduled for release on Nov. 20, 2001.
