I've received the following news from Egg and Uriel (a.k.a. Arzachel):

"

egg - the metronomical society (cd)

Egg consisted of Dave Stewart (keyboards), Mont Campbell (bass/vocals) and Clive Brooks (drums). Known for their uncompromising complexity and pinpoint accuracy of performance, the group was one of the most musically adventurous to emerge from the UK underground scene of the late '60s.

The Metronomical Society is a collection of live and studio recordings made by the pioneering trio between 1969 and 1972. It features archive material unheard for nearly 40 years, including a sizeable segment of Egg's last Roundhouse concert which demonstrates the group's live power. Also included are superior versions of tracks from the band's radio sessions, previously available only on poor-quality bootlegs.

The CD lasts over an hour and ships in a full-colour Digipak with a 20-page booklet containing Egg's history in the musicians' own words, unique period photos and artwork. The foreword is written by the irrepressible Captain Sensible.

A limited number of copies signed by the three musicians are available. "

uriel - arzachel collectors edition (cd)

Formed in 1967 at the height of the UK psychedelic scene, Uriel consisted of Steve Hillage (guitar/vocals), Dave Stewart (organ), Mont Campbell (bass/vocals) and Clive Brooks (drums). When Hillage left the band Uriel continued as an organ trio, later changing their name to Egg.

Arzachel Collectors Edition is a re-mastered version of the legendary 1969 psychedelic album recorded under a pseudonym by Uriel, featuring the amazing 17-year old Steve Hillage on guitar throughout. The CD also contains four unreleased, ultra-rare Uriel studio demos, a spoken-word message from the past and a live snippet recorded in 1968. Steve Hillage plays on two of these bonus tracks.

61 minutes of mind-expanding music and the occasional freak-out in a full-colour Digipak with its own 20-page booklet. As in The Metronomical Society, the story of Uriel (told in the band's own words) is illustrated by a unique set of photos taken in the late '60s.

A limited number of copies signed by the four musicians are available. "

Oh my God. This is amazing. I only wish I had held off on buying Arzachel until now!
 
I'll definitely check out Egg though. This is great news, thanks!

Aye, it is.  Arzachel isn't the greatest of albums though, except for the final track, so I hope this bonus material is pretty damned good!

The Egg stuff does sound promising though.

Hmm. I'd go as far to say that Metempsychosis is my least favorite track on Arzachel.

Haven't heard any Egg at all, unfortunately, though I've been meaning to. I'll look into this one.
