Product Description
(PLEASE NOTE: The DVD Extras WILL PLAY on all US DVD Players!)

The concept album of the musical Chess, originally released in 1984, will be issued in a remastered and expanded edition. The original double-album sold two million copies and spawned the international hit singles ‘I Know Him So Well’ and ‘One Night In Bangkok’. Not only did ‘Chess’ combine the songwriting might of ABBA’s Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus with the already-legendary lyricist Tim Rice (‘Evita’, ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ and many more) it also showcased some of the finest musical-theatre vocalists in the West End and Europe at that time: Elaine Paige, Murray Head, Tommy Körberg, Barbara Dickson and Denis Quilley.

In celebration of its 30th Anniversary, Chess is now released as a 3-disc Deluxe Edition, with three previously unreleased bonus tracks plus a DVD featuring an in-depth documentary and five music-videos made from the hit songs on the album.
