Releases information

4 LP boxed set, limited to 5000 copies, containing four previously unreleased albums, a set of 8 postcards and a book of Bill's photography entitled "The Arcane Eye". Cocteau Records JEAN 2 (UK)

The first releases of "Trial By Intimacy" did not have a book due to problems with assembly. Cocteau included a letter on how you can receive a book in the box.

The albums each have their own catalogue number and are as follows:

The Summer Of Gods Piano (JC6)
Chamber Of Dreams (Music From The Invisibility Exhibition) (JC7)
Pavilions Of Heart And Soul (JC8)
A Catalogue Of Obsessions (JC9)

Some versions of this Boxset appear to omit the track "Tantra" from "The Summer Of God's Piano" (B1).
