The package includes pretty much everything in existence relating to the album, from the original album remastered by Tony Visconti and augmented by B-sides, outtakes and previously unreleased material, via a DVD featuring interviews and performances, a hardback book and sheet music right down to a facsimile of an original Bolan fan club letter - gaze in awe at the full contents here.
