Comes in a Double Digipack inside a cardboard slipcase

Sleeve notes:
"Originally part of the landmark "7707" boxset, this CD+DVD, available for the first time in its own right, documents vital & out of the ordinary moments in the group's 30 year plus history. Two discs are joined together in an alchemy of sound and vision.

The CD "Lost Cords" is a collection of unusual performances assembled to give a wide overview of the diverse paths Tuxedomoon has forged in the three decades since its humble beginnings in San Francisco. Chosen more often to fit that criterion than any other, these recordings run the gamut from totally obscure one-time live performances to demos of songs pursued or not.

The DVD "Found Films" is indeed that, a compilation of images/performances excavated from various sources that helped to define Tuxedomoon as one of the preeminent art-rock groups. Included is the stunning "Ghost Sonata", the band's "opera without words", the collection of nine music videos entitled "1000 Lives by Picture", "Mythical Puzzle" a travelogue documenting the Tuxedomoon experience in 1988, "Jet Wave" an intimate look at a multimedia loft jam in 1980, the earliest recorded films of the group in the studio entitled "Colorado Suite" and finally to add diamonds to the gold, a video for "No Tears" chronicling 30 years of Tuxedomoon history in images & film."

CD + DVD is a collection of rare and unreleased tracks and videos.

The printed credits in the booklet for the CD & DVD for songwriting includes 2 mistakes:
- for DVD section "II. 1000 Lives By Picture", tracks 8 and 9 (DVD-23 and DVD-24) are missing songwriting credits, these had been added from their original release ("Holy Wars" and "Scream With A View") as Uncredited
- for DVD section "V. Colorado Suite", tracks 7 and 8 are credited as written by Reininger*/Brown*, but these are not existent on the DVD, there are only 6 tracks in this section of the DVD
