Over the course of the twelve performances, a total of thirty different songs are played -- with a couple of extras thrown in for good measure." - Drag City.

Title: Overture
Format: CD/DVD
Label: Drag City
Country: USA
Price: $17.50
"At sunset on the night of October 9th, 2006, a crowd gathered at Nippon Yusen Soko, a converted warehouse space located on Yokahama Bay. Their purpose: to see and hear new music played by Ghost. Once they had completely arrived, the doors were shut and locked and the announcement made: no one would enter or exit the space until the performance was complete. Starting in complete darkness, the performance was spun, like yarn from a cocoon. The set for this evening was not just new to the audience. For this event, Ghost played entirely improvised material. Improvisation is the wellspring of creation for Ghost, both live and in the studio, though theyve never made an entire album of improvisations until now. In order to not miss a single inspiration, Ghost brought their orchestras-worth of instrumentation, playing bass, drums, piano, electric and acoustic guitars, saxophones, flute, tin-whistle, bells, frame drums, lute, tabla-baya, waterphone and even tapes! The performance space was chosen for its sonic qualities such as natural reverb as well as its resemblance to Potala Palace in Lhasa -- an ancient meditation retreat. Band members were spaced apart to prevent eye contact and allow distance for the reverberations to unfold between them -- which in turn, were recorded by four microphones spaced distantly from the band and faced toward the walls, in order to catch the sound in the room with the audience present as well as the echo of that sound. The CD performance is an edited version of the evenings events -- but the DVD is a completely live, four-camera view into the collective journey of Ghost and their audience. In addition to the sounds and sights of the band in action, the viewer will also experience the atmospheres created by Overheads, whose far-ranging light works (and subtle placement of a lace curtain) enhanced the mood within Nippon Yusen Soko that night." DVD length: 1 hr., 30 mins.; color, NTSC format; All-Region; Audio: Stereo & 5.1 Surround." - Drag City.

Title: Tune In, Turn On, Free Tibet
Format: Double LP
Label: Drag City
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"It seemed as if Ghost had been in the studio for a million years. It turned out to be only six months in our time. But with the flood of material recorded in their recent extended studio sessions, it was possible to think in terms of releasing not one, but two Ghost LPs, all at once. With Snuffbox Immanence set as the next official release, Tune In... was hastily added to the schedule. Included in the liner notes is a message from the Liason Office of his Holiness the Dalai Lama, detailing the struggles of the nation of Tibet in their ongoing bid for independence from China. Ghost add to this protest a series of dense, somber, acoustic compositions. Each of these songs turns a new page in the eternal book of Ghost. An atmosphere of morning pervades, as Ghost gives their undying respect to the nonviolent resistance of the people of Tibet" - Drag City. 1999 release, repressed on vinyl. Double LP, gatefold silver foil cover. CD also available.
