2003 release; separate version of 2 of the bonus discs from the 6CD The Art Box. "As the years passed and technology marched on, the band decided to let some other artists (all of whom are well-known for their advanced focus on music thru innovation) to remix the three original albums. On Revisited, we are treated to how others perceive the importance of the Art Bears' back catalog by their own standards in the current studio world, using the resurrected master tapes as a starting point. In all cases the work is as radical today as it was when the band first offered it up a quarter of a century ago. Features remixes and reworksings by Bob Drake, Stevan Tickmeyer, Jon Rose, Christian Marclay, Thomas Dimuzio, Musci/Venosta/Mariani, Lars Pedersen (When), Warrick Swinney/Kalahari Surfers, Biota, The Residents, Otomo Yoshida/Ground Zero, and, well...too many more to mention here. You get the idea. It harkens the Art Bears' trilogy into a new era of technology, aesthetic and sound, all of which had yet to be introduced back when the albums were made. Also on these disks are previously unreleased concert recordings, a reissue of the 'Collapse' 45 rpm (from Ralph Records), a newly completed piece by the band aptly called, 'Rebirth' (which was hitherto a poem in the coveted 'Wintersongs' book), 'All Hail' from the Recommended Sampler."
