The re-mastered set includes Mask, a second disc of the non-album singles, previously unreleased demos and alternative versions plus a newly mixed 1981 live show on the third disc. This Omnibus Edition is presented as a limited edition box set with the three CD's in Japanese-style paper sleeves, reproducing the original (gate-fold) vinyl cover art. Managing the sometimes hard-to-negotiate trick of expanding their sound while retaining all the qualities which got them attention to begin with, on Mask the members of Bauhaus consciously stretched themselves into newer areas of music and performance, resulting in an album that was arguably even better than the band's almost flawless debut.
Mask is the second album by the British post-punk and gothic rock band Bauhaus, released in 1981 on Beggar's Banquet Records. The album cover is a drawing by Daniel Ash. The original artwork for the album was a gatefold sleeve, with blue text on the inside and a stark black and white image of the band, on later editions this inside was replaced with white text and a montage from the promotional video for the song "Mask".The 1998 compact disc included the following additional tracks. "Harry" was recorded on January 26, 1979 at Beck Studios. It, along with "In Fear of Dub" and "Ear Wax" had been released on an EP. The other songs were released as singles.
